AdWords not linking to Google My Business

I've linked my AdWords account to my Google My Business account (to display all business locations), however in the Google My Business management page, it says 0 under linked AdWords accounts? The change was made several days ago.

AdWords not linking to Google My Business

You are very welcome and I do understand. I just wanted to verify they were active in AdWords, which is what matters. If they were not in AdWords, we would have wanted to get them synced. 

 

Further, I have many, many client accounts in AdWords as an agency, and the same accounts in Google My Business and they all say the same as yours (in Google My Business). Everything works great. 

 

Hope this helps!

 

Kind Regards,

 

James

Hi,

 

Let's go back to AdWords and check on it there.

 

  • Open AdWords.
  • Click on All Campaigns.
  • Click on the Ad extension tab.
  • Now change the drop down menu to location extensions. 

 

Is your location shown here or is it blank?

 

If the locations show here, they are active. If it is blank, we would want to discuss filters, which are almost always the reason why this happens.

 

Please let us know and we will be happy to assist further. 

 

Kind Regards,

 

James

Hi James,

 

Thanks for your help.

 

The locations are shown here and are active - but my query was why does Google My Business not show any linked Adwords accounts? Does it matter?

So did you ever get an answer about the GMB page not showing any linked Adwords accounts?  I have the same problem.  I have adwords accounts and followed all these instructions.  There are location extensions.  But yet, the GMB shows no linked adwords accounts.

Yes, I have the same question as David H. I've read and completed the top advice from J Clemens, but I see no answer about why it is not being reflected in out Google My Business account. How do we get it to show there?

Hi David H & Chris M,

 

I have not actually seen any GMB dashboards say anything but zero linked AdWords accounts. Mine even says that, even though I have many, many linked AdWords accounts using the locations extension. 

 

Google often adds in features and tests them with a small number of accounts before opening them to the masses. This could be what is happening with the GMB dashboard. I really do not know... but I do know that what is important is that the location extensions work in AdWords. 

 

Kind Regards,

 

James

Thanks James. Not the answer I was hoping for, but it makes sense.
