Linking Ad Words to Google My Business Error

Hi, 

 

Trying to link AdWords to a new Google My Business account. When I try to request a link using the manager's email address, I get an error that reads "could not request access to this account". I know that we are still waiting to receive the post card from Google with the verification number on it - could that be the cause of the error? 

 

Thanks!

Hi Jack,

 

You do need access first before linking to AdWords. Until you complete the postcard verification and gain complete control, you technically do not have access and cannot link to something that you do not control.

 

All the Best,

 

James
