AdSense and Analytics Perturbed with Each Other?

    First, what's with the dead forums? big_smile

    Meanwhile, went to AdSense -- Settings -- Access and Authorization - Google Analytics Integration.

    And got this...

    "We apologize for the inconvenience, but we are unable to process your request at this time. Our engineers have been notified of this problem and will work to resolve it."

    Now if this is happening to everyone, then no big deal. It'll no doubt get fixed in due course. But if it's just happening to me... sad

    And, yes. I'm upgraded to the new UA.

    Anybody else running into this?

      You need to link the accounts in both interfaces. I just tried to link my personal account and it appears to have worked. First I went to AdSense --> Settings --> Access and Authorization --> Google Analytics Integration (same page as you) and clicked on "link" under the Action column. That triggered a dialogue box to appear, prompting me to complete the process in Google Analytics. It sounds you did not see this message. I suggest trying again, and if it does not work, go directly to Analytics --> Admin and click on "AdSense Linking" in the Account column. You should be able to complete the integration there. Let me know how it goes! Try a couple of different browsers if you can. There may be a bug.

      To answer your second question, all you need to do is deactivate hpads and your account will be switched to AdSense only. smile

        Thanks!

        I went to Analytics. They sent me back to AdSense. Which gave me the same error message.  Looking like it's me and my lame computer I guess. Oh, well. I can't upgrade the browser because I can't upgrade the OS because I can't fix the BIOS because I can't upgrade the OS. I am doomed... big_smile

        Sorry about being an hpads traitor. Based on what I'm seeing so far, looks like I'll be switching back to hpads pretty quick. big_smile

          Hmm, that's unfortunate. I will try to find out if there is a known issue with Google.

          I checked in with our rep at AdSense. She said that when that error message appears in the AdSense UI it's usually temporary. It was recommended that you restart your browser and give it another try. If this doesn't work, she can escalate the issue to the right team for us.

          Given that, let's wait until tomorrow (perhaps more Hubbers will report the issue by then) and if you're still unable to link to Analytics, I will ask our rep to escalate. Sound good? I'll monitor this thread but you can also email team@hubpages.com if you like.

            Hi, Marina. I tried and failed again this morning. The more I observe and think about it, the more I am convinced it's my lame computer; the thing seems to hesitate a lot when dealing with the latest Google JavaScript code implementations. I don't think it would be fair to Google to contact them concerning this. Thanks for your help. smile

    Well, beginning to look like I'm a cult of one on this.

    Btw, when one switches from hpads to adsense, is there anything that needs to be done other than making hpads inactive?

    Seems to me there was a second step I had to do last time. However, I can't seem to find that second step this time. Did HP get rid of that second step? Or is my obsolete browser-OS-computer just not showing it because it's too lame to decipher the JavaScript?

    Why do you want to switch to Adsense ads?

      Someone whispered an extremely high RPM in my ear... But it's looking like it's specific to a topic which isn't mine.

    paradigmsearch,
    I have just checked into both Analytics and AdSense with no problems.

    Hey PD,

    Loved your circle of Doom (rofl)

    Anyway on topic, I can't link my Analytics and Adsense accounts either. The reason being the site I had initially linked is now deleted and I can't get rid of it (The dead site is currently linked).

    To contact Adsense support via email to get them to do it for me, I need to have earnings of $25 a week consistently (that's what the support thread said when I went to "Ask Support for Help").

    On Google Chrome I get the same error as you, it's been over a month now. Believe it or not, on IE it works fine. Not the linking part, but I don't get an error at least. It takes me to the page and shows me the dead site which is linked. (You can link just one site at a time).

    If you want to link more you need to add this code to the head section of every page (Just like the analytics code):

    <script>
    google_analytics_uacct = "UA-XXXXXXXX-1  ";
    </script>

    PS: For the code to work you need to be able to link the accounts though sad As mentioned earlier only one of them works automatically without the code.

      lobobrandon, to clarify, are you having trouble unlinking the dead site? This AdSense FAQ entry might be helpful. If not, I will see if our AdSense rep can help address both this and the issue paradigmsearch is having.

        That's exactly what I tried Marina, here's a screenshot of my account. There's no option to unlink the account.

        Was about to post then realized that I had another email id (Really old one) that was linked. Signed into that and then managed to unlink big_smile The option became available from that account. Just posted anyway as it may help someone else some day.

        Thanks again big_smile
