I created an AdWords account in order to use the keyword tool but it's making create an ad before I can do anything. I want to delete my account and start over, but I can't even do that without creating an ad. Help?

Hi Zachary,

 

Thanks for reaching out. 

 

In order to cancel an account, you can follow the steps here. Keep in mind that the account is still tied to your email address, and it's not possible to have two AdWords accounts with the same email address, even if one of the accounts is canceled.

 

If you are still having trouble, I recommend getting in touch with the AdWords team. They will be able to look into your account and help identify the problem.

If your only goal is to use the KW tool, then you are going to have to have an AdWords account one way or the other. Create your first ad, and immediately select paused. (Click the green button to the left of the ad.)
