The following article contains step-by-step instructions for settings up Google Contact Sync on your iOS device:
Follow these steps to set up contact syncing with Google Contacts:
- Tap Settings > Mail, Contacts, Calendars > Add Account > Other > Add CardDav Account.
- Enter the following information in the fields:
- Server: google.com
- User Name: Enter your full Google email address
- Password: Your Google account password

After you have completed the setup, open the Contacts app on your device. Syncing should begin automatically.
Note: Make sure that SSL is enabled (under Advanced settings), and that the port is 443.

Go into contacts and click "group" in the upper left hand corner. See which contacts are currently being displayed IE: iCloud, gmail, on my iPhone, etc. Turn a couple of them off, and see if half the contacts disappear. It is possible that the contacts are currently being synced from multiple locations, hence the doubleups

I have the same question and followed the procedure outlined. However, there was no automatic syncing when I opened my Contacts app. If I added a new contact via my iPhone or iPad, it did automatically go into my Google Contacts, and vice versa. But I can't seem to move all of my iPhone/iPad Contacts into the Google Contacts on the PC.
Also, does it matter that I have the contacts on both my iPhone and my iPad?

Mind did not sync when I opened the Contacts app. What does work is if I add a contact through the app, it's added to the gmail database, and vice versa. But the current data in the Contacts app (which is more complete than the gmail database) does not sync/update the gmail database.

Had the same issue, here is the fix:
Shalu, I just experienced this same problem and the following represents my fix given to me by APPLE and it did work. First make sure you correctly set up your cardDAV account and it's titled "Google" with "Contacts" as the sub description. Click on >>settings<< >>Mail, Contacts, Calendars<<. Now look to make sure you see listed under the ACCOUNTS heading the "Google" account with "Contacts" as a sub heading. This confirms you set up your CardDAV correctly. Second scroll down to the "Contacts" heading on this same screen and click on >>Default Account<< click on >>Google<< to make sure there is a check mark to the right. You Are Done!!! Go back to home screen and refresh everything on your computer.

All you really have to do is download the free gmail app from the App Store. It will ask you if you want it to import all your gmail contacts. Touch "ok" and they will all be there!
