An error prevented us from linking your AdSense and Analytics accounts

In my previous post I explained how to link AdSense account to multiple Google Analytics accounts.

I tried to link my other Google Analytics accounts with AdSense just now and hit this error.

Resource is not available. Please try again later.

I tried few times, refreshed browser, log out and log back in but it doesn’t resolve. And funny thing is that there is not a single instance of this error reported by anyone in the past. So I became the first person to report this type of error.

It looks like temporary error, I’ll try it again tomorrow and will update if I find any solution.

    Well, you are not alone anymore. Exactly the same problem observed today on our page when I tried to link AdSense with Analytics account. The problem still persists 10 hours later.
    Earlier today, I successfully linked another AdSense with another Analytics account.
    I suspect the problem might be related to the fact that the website in question is based on Google Sites, which seems to implement AdSense in a special way.

    Seems to be resolved: The error happened when I (by mistake) tried to link the same AdSense account to a second Analytics account. This is currently not supported by Google, according to point 5) on “How do I link my AdSense account to Google Analytics?” http://support.google.com/googleanalytics/bin/answer.py?hl=en&answer=92625
    No need to mention that Google should make the error message more descriptive…

    @Ajay Singh: Was your scenario the same?

      Yes Mate!
      That’s the problem.

      You can’t link one AdSense account to more than one Google Analytics Account.

      I found above answer after wasting at least 1 hour of my precious time.

      The workaround for this situation is to move the domains into one Analytics account.

    You’re right – this is the only mention of this problem I can find on the entire web!

    I got this after trying to link a second site. I have 1 Analytics and 1 Adsense account, both under the same Google ID. Each has several sites under it.

    I successfully linked Adsense and Analytics on the first account I tried. Every other one I try after that, I get this error.

    What’s worse is that for the one site I did link successfully, there is no Adsense data displaying in Analytics.

    Google’s Analytics help forum has several people getting this same error under different circumstances with no help from Google and no prospect for resolution – some of them are a month or older.
