Linking Analytics to AdWords Account

Following up to a post on the old forum (found here) I seem to be running into the same problem as Mr. Mister.

 

To clarify, I have granted adminstrative access in Analytics AND AdWords for this particular email. I'm in the new versioni of Analytics and AdWords. I'm logged into AdWords with the email I have granted administrative access to in both Analytics and AdWords. I select 'Google Analytics' located in the drop down of the 'Tools and Analysis' tab. The next page loads and it's titled 'Account Home'. On this page I see the analytics account I want to link. I click it. It loads the 'Standard Reporting' tab within the AdWords screen. I click the GEAR button located at the top right.

 

The only tabs I see available are:

Screencast: http://screencast.com/t/S7Cchu1M


Profiles
Tracking Code
Web Property Settings

And Another Row:

Assets
Goals
Users
Filters
Profile Settings

 

I cannot, if my life depended on it, find this page (http://screencast.com/t/XpHhq3zv) that Google has in their step by step guide with the 'Link Accounts' button. What am I missing here?

 

Thank you in advanced!

 

Ugh,

Very Frustrated User

Simply does not work for me as I do not have the gear or the data sources tab as shown in the directions.  My account is linked to an old - delteted account, and I cant unlink that either

Hello MBtest,

 

I don't think you can delete an Analytics acoount which is linked with adwords, first you need to unlink analytics account from adwords. After doing this you can deleted that as waht i think, what message you get when you try to access analytics from adwords account.

 

You can create a new analytics account and insert the new tracking code in web pages and then follow the same steps mentioed in above link. Please read more about Linking/Unlinking Analytics Accounts and AdWords Accounts in given article.

 

Please let us know your problem status.
