Can not link Google My Business and Adwords

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

I have added a Location Extension in Adwords and it says "1 Location Synced." However, when I then go to Google My Business and click "Adwords Accounts" in the dashboard it shows "No Linked Adwords accounts" and "No Pending Adwords Link Requests." I have waited 4 days and tried various things but no matter what is done these do not seem to link. 


I am using the same login for both Adwords and Google My Business. I am an admin in Adwords and the Owner of the location within GMB. 


What am I doing wrong or any other suggestions to point me in the right direction?

Google My Business not linking with Adwords

I am trying to link my Adwords account with my Google My Business Location. When I set up the Location Extension in Adwords it shows "1 Location Synced." (I only have one location for this given login) However, when I go GMB and look at the "Adwords Accounts" tab, it shows "No linked Adwords Accounts" and "No Pending Adwords Link Requests." I've waited over 5 days as I figured it could take some time. Tried setting up filters and such within Adwords Location Extensions, but I have not had any luck.


I am an Admin within Adwords and the owner of the GMB page. I do not think permissions is the problem. Any suggestions and help would be appreciated.

Hi Jared, I asked around and everything seems fine on the GMB backend. I would suggest poking around at the AdWords Community to see if they can help you figure it out.

Let me know how it goes.
