If this is a PPC/Analytics or other issue, happy to take this elsewhere.

I've been doing some PPC thru adwords for a new site which is on the wordpress platform.

I've linked the Analytics Account to the Adwords Account.
Data is appearing in the Analytics account.
It is correctly importing click and impression data.

However, the adword keywords, visit data and cost data are not importing.

I've enabled auto-tagging in the account in order for the destination URLs of the ads to be tagged with tracking variables.

For some reason the site is not allowing the urls to append the code/tags onto them so no data shows up on the Adwords section of Analytics.

Anyone had a similar problem? Is this a known Wordpress problem?

thanks in advance for any advice and support.

Welcome to WebmasterWorld!
So let me get this straight. You have an Adwords campaign running that sends traffic to your WordPress site. But when people arrive there via one of your ad URLs, the URL loses the tracking code you have on the URL?

I assume you've tried pasting the full URL into a browser to see what happens. You may need to modify your htaccess file to allow the variables to be used.
