AdWords traffic showing as Google Organic in Analytics

For a new AdWords account set up about three weeks ago, 100% of the traffic is being reported in Analytics as organic.  Not only do I not see google/cpc in the traffic sources, but also if I use advanced segments to filter on paid traffic, Analytics says I have 0 traffic.  And yes, the traffic to the landing page shows in site content/pages, but when you look at source and medium, it says Google organic. 

 

Not good!  Any ideas on how to fix this? 

 

The site is on WordPress, if that matters.  Thanks.

Hello Missycookseo,

 

If you haven't linked Google analytics account with adwords you can't see paid traffic in google analytics, please read  How to Link Google Analytics to Google Adwords Account to link both accounts. It does not matter website is in wordpress.

Hi missycookseo,

 

In addition I would like to add that make sure you have auto tagging enabled in your Adwords account. Just before you follow the procedure to link Adwords with Analytics, look for this under My account>> Preferences. Below screenshot should help you with that:

 


 

 

After that you can follow the blog post mentioned by Dinesh to properly link your Adwords with Analytics.

 

Just a thought!

Hi guys,

I am having a similar problem here.

I am seeing organic traffic recorded as paid traffic in Analytics. I have followed your steps as well as the one above but it still shows up.

Are there other ways around this?

Thanks!

Check if the code snipets are diffrent (the one in Analytics and the one that is imlemented on your site), or if you have 2 snippets.

Can you tell me what your site is?
