Someone else set up the account and did not give an adequate handover. 

So I am now trying to adjust the campaign to include our proper address:  www.lauralynn.ie instead of www.sunshinehome.ie  Please tell me how to do this??

Hi lauralynn and welcome to the forum.  

 

You're lucky because there's a brand new feature in the Adwords interface that makes this a lot easier than it used to be - Bulk Editing.  This article gives you all the info you need about editing URLs and down the bottom of the page is a section on bulk edits which should be your answer:

Do come back with any other questions you might have.

Hiya,

 

you can also bulk change via adwords editor.

Downlaod adwords editor, get your entire cmapign and:

Select the Ads Tab

CTRL+A

CTRL+H

Find text: lauralynn.ie

(dropdown: All text and URL fileds)

replace with: sunshinehome.ie

(leave all unchecked)

 

Note that your new domain name is 3 characters longer than the old one... You might have to remove the www. on display URL for some of your ads.

 

Hope htis helps Smiley Happy

It's a lot quicker just to use the Bulk Edit feature isn't it?  Rather than downloading and installing the Editor and all the other actions?  The new domain is actually shorter than the old one, not longer.

woops, read it the other way around...

 

With regards to editor, its a question of prefrences...

It's an amazing tool and bulk changes are usually easier to do (check and revert changes, append text, etc.).

 

And Laura has now 2 solutions.
