Missing CDATA comments + No conversion shown on Adwords when it shows in Analytics

Hello community,

 

Absolutely no sense in that. Please could anyone help?

 
Missing CDATA comments when the tag seems correctly written:
 
<!-- Google Code for Online Purchase Of Course BKMC Conversion Page
In your html page, add the snippet and call
goog_report_conversion when someone clicks on the
chosen link or button. -->
<script type="text/javascript">
/* <![CDATA[ */
goog_snippet_vars = function() {
var w = window;
w.google_conversion_id = 970605409;
w.google_conversion_label = "MQqFCNupsW0Q4YbpzgM";
w.google_remarketing_only = false;
}
// DO NOT CHANGE THE CODE BELOW.
goog_report_conversion = function(url) {
goog_snippet_vars();
window.google_conversion_format = "3";
var opt = new Object();
opt.onload_callback = function() {
if (typeof(url) != 'undefined') {
window.location = url;
}
}
var conv_handler = window['google_trackConversion'];
if (typeof(conv_handler) == 'function') {
conv_handler(opt);
}
}
/* ]]> */
</script>
<script type="text/javascript" src="http://www.googleadservices.com/pagead/conversion_async.js" charset="utf-8"></script>
 
But "Missing CDATA" error on tag manager.
 
Conversions show on Analytics but not in Adwords when the accounts are properly linked.
 
Any clue?
 
Thank you!

If the conversion shows in Analytics, you can import that goal into AdWords.

Hi Rob,

 

That's what I did but the conversions don't show in "Conversion actions" in Adwords at all! Not one. I know there can be some differences between GA at Adwords data but not one conversion shows when hundreds are in GA.

In Analytics is AdWords shown as the source of the goals?

No weirdly enough, my own website is shown as source of the goal and I can't fix that either. It appears as source only since I added conversion trackers though

AdWords will only show imported goals from Analytics where AdWords is the source. All others are ignored.

 

Could you be sending people to http and your site is redirecting them to https? This is the usual culprit, but there are many other possibilities. 

 

You can exclude your site as a source in Analytics. This is a commonly done thing. Info here:
