Hi, 

 

I am trying to use the location extension for my adwords account. However, the email address for the adwords account is different from the email address for the google my business account. Is it still possible to link the two? I wasn't able to find any option for this and all my searches have come up empty. Any help is appreciated. 

 

Thanks,

Prince

Add the other email address as a user to sync the two.

Hey Prince,

 

You can send an "invite" to be a manger from your GMB Settings page to your AdWords email address. Keep in mind to use two different browsers, so you can go back and forth easily between accounts (ex. Chrome and IE). 

 

Your AdWords email will get an invitation to be a manager to your GMB page, follow the link (super easy!). 

 

Refresh or log into your AdWords account, navigate to Location Extensions, click the big red +Extension, and it will show you all the listings you're a manager for (there should only be the 1 Smiley Happy

 

It should automatically sync after 24 hours. Remember though, the location ext will only show if your ad rank is high enough. 

 

It's a little tedious, but well worth it in the end! 

 

Good Luck!
