Clicks in AdWords don't show up as sessions in GA

According to AdWords, we received 59 clicks on an advertisement that is directed to a specific landing page. However, looking at the page in Google Analytics shows almost no user activity (our only filter is blocking internal IP).


After going to our unfiltered view, I still only see 19 sessions.


I confirmed that our analytics is set up and working by hitting the page while looking at Real Time activity and seeing my pageview.


I double checked with our team that manages AdWords and confirmed that we're using the correct URL.


Do you have any ideas why there would be such a disconnect?

Hi @Todd R,


Looks like you checked out almost everything.  One big step would be to make sure that your analytics and adwords accounts are linked together.


Hope this helps!
