Google AdWords Smart Goals

Hi Everyone,


My AdWords account have conversion tracking pixel in place and conversions are tracking properly. When Google announced Smart Goals feature, I just want a try and enabled smart goals in Analytics as per the process defined in Google Help Center ( My Google AdWords account is already linked to Analytics account and as per the guidelines given in the above link Smart Goals will track under Tools > Conversions > Google Analytics tab and when we click the check box and click import then only it will populate under conversions data.


But strangely, After 2 weeks of enabling Smart Goals, all my predefined Goals data is automatically added to conversion data and started displaying in AdWords interface (Segment by Conversion Action Report). I am unable to figure out how this happens without importing any Goals data into AdWords.


Also, I have some more questions in my mind -


1) Once we have predefined conversion tracking, will Google tracks smart goals also apart from the regular conversion tracking? (This doubt raised when I am not seeing any smart goal data under Google Analytics tab in AdWords)

2) When I enable Smart Goals in Analytics, will predefined goals also will import to conversion data automatically?

3) Why I am not seeing any Smart Goals data under Google Analytics tab in AdWords even after enabling in Analytics?


Please feel free to ask if you need any clarifications.
