Hi Hanyaw,

Simply enable the tick box on the far left that will select the campaign/ad group you want to delete. Just above the list there is a drop down called 'edit' select that drop down and then select the option call 'remove'.

This will delete the campaign. It is worth noting, however, that this campaign will still exist, so you will be able to see its performance and 'un-remove' it at a later stage if you wish. You will also not be able to use that campaigns exact naming convention, so you may want to rename it.

Hope this helps

When I delete it still shows up with "Ad Group Deleted" as its status. Surely there must be a way to permanently delete ad groups?

Hi @Zahir A,

 

Unfortunately there is no such option in AdWords to delete it permanently, you can only remove it.

The historical data will be retained in the account till lifelong.

 

You can simply hide the removed/paused campaigns, ad group, ads, keywords by accessing the corresponding tab and option their status tab as All Enabled.

Thank's @Archit

Now i am using new adwords, you are right that we can not remove campaign or ad group permanently, but if you want to remove keyword in adwords so you can easily.

Simply first you pause your keyword which you want to delete and then remove, your keyword will permanently remove.
