Delete Removed (Old) Campaigns.

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

Hello,

 

I am trying to delete old campaigns that have their status shown as removed. I select all of the campaigns and select remove (even if I do them individually) I will get an error that says " Errors occurred while making your changes" and the only option given is to dismiss. Any information would be appreciated.

 

Thanks,

Aaron

Hi @Aaron H,

 

Any removed campaign/ad group/keyword/ad in AdWords can not be deleted permanently.

 

You can hide these removed ad/keywords/ad groups/campaigns by option their status as All Enabled.

@Aaron H This sounds like an AdWords question so I will move your thread to that forum.

Thanks for your help. The previous person to use this particular Adwords profile had a bunch of older information on there and it's resulted in a bunch of unusable (and unmovable) information. 

 

It has resulted in a permanent red banner across the top of the Adwords landing page and it is pretty irritating. I am currently trying to learn as much as I can  as I am new to all of this. 

 

I have found the forums to be very helpful. Thanks again!

Hi @Lucy W,

 

Access the campaigns tab and click campaign status filter to change the status.

Are you able to see the 3 vertical dots on campaigns tab at left hand side navigation menu?

This is in the AdWords account correct?
