Analytics and AdWords Express

I use AdWords Express and have one Ad on it.

I wanted to connect it to my Google Analytics Property for the site and followed the instructions.


But I just see zeros in my Ad Overview in Adwords.


Account Linking:


Adwords Settings: - express.PNG


Adwords Ad: - the ad.PNG 

I thought I would see something different than 0 under "New visits from your ad", "Average time spent on your website" and "Average number of pages viewed".


Now I'm asking myself: Why? What is wrong and how can I fix it?

Hi @Christian S,


It does take roughly 24 hours for the date to start to appear. Also, keep in mind that Analytics will only show data forwardly... meaning nothing from the periods before you added the code and it became live. 


Kind Regards,

Thank you.


I forgot to mention that I linked it over a week ago.



So the 24 hour waiting rule can't be the reason for the data not showing.
