Adding Adwords Account Not associated with Analytics Account

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

Hello,

 

I currently manage an AdWords campaign for my client under my account manager.  I am trying to add that account to the client's Analytics account.

 

The client already has an Adwords Express account (not running currently) associated with their analytics account, and I am authorized on the Analytics account to manage it, but I can't figure out how to add the Adwords account I manage to his Analytics account as the only property that shows up as "eligible" is the adwords express account.

 

Any suggestions?  Thanks in advance!

Hi Maria,

My guess is this could be a permissions issue. Do you have your AdWords MCC login added as an admin in the Analytics account?

Hi Tommy, thanks for your reply.

Yes, I am on the account as an administrator along with the business owner. Analytics won't give me any option to add any other account other than his old AdWords Express account.

Hi Maria,

When you go to create a link in Analytics, if all the permissions are correct, you should see all AdWords accounts that you currently have access to for that particular login.

I can't look myself to ensure that you do have the proper level access to all accounts involved here. Please double check and follow the steps outlined here: https://support.google.com/analytics/answer/1033961?hl=en

Hi Tommy-


I didn't change any of the settings I previously described, but when I logged into the same Analytics account I was given the option to add the account I manage under my MCC credentials. Maybe it just took some time for it to update, though four days seems like a long time.


Either way, I was able to link the AdWords Account to the Analytics account for the client.


I much appreciate your assistance and your response.


Thanks,
