Remarketing list empty

Hi all,

 

I have created a remarketing list in adwords, with filter: "URL contains: www.ourwebsite.com"

The adwords account is linked to our analytics account and remarketing is enabled in Google analytics.

The remarketing list is connected to an adgroup and active video campaign.

Traffic over 1000 per day so that shouldnt be the problem either.

 

Yet the list is still empty. Does someone know what might be wrong?

 

Thanks.

Hi @Rens V

 

Is your YouTube channel linked to your adwords and analytics account?

Hi @Julia Xhajaj

 

Thanks for your reply!

Yes it's linked to Adwords. The video channel is in Analytics as well and in the advanced settings of YouTube we entered the analytics property ID of that video channel.

Hi @Rens V

 

 

In order to activate the link between a YouTube channel and an AdWords account (directly, not through Analytics property), you have to make sure the link is verified in both YouTube and AdWords.

Hi @Julia Xhajaj

 

Thank you. I have just checked it and the accounts were already linked and verified in AdWords and YouTube.

 @Julia Xhajaj i think you might've tagged the wrong "Rens V" Smiley Tongue 

 

Might be a bit confusing, i know.. i was aswel when i couldn't remember i wrote this Smiley Tongue (i didn't someone with the same name did Smiley Tongue )

Its solved, I had created the filter in Adwords. Instead, I now created an audience in the linked Analytics account, which shows up in Adwords and it is populating. Thanks @Julia Xhajaj for your help!
