How are Ad Group IDs Assigned to Ad Group Names?

I am wondering why Ad Group IDs are not 1:1 with Ad Group Names.

I noticed that for some of my Ad Group Names, there are more than 1 Ad Group ID tied to it.

I believe that the Ad Group ID comes from the {adgroupid} ValueTrack parameter so does it have to do with updating the Ad Group?

Hi Lauren B,

That does seem strange. Is it possible you have ad groups with the same name in different campaigns? I can't think of a single reason for one ad group to have more than one id, and I can think of several reason why the would be a bad idea.

I tried to find the right Value Track parameter for ad group id and was unsuccessful. I hope this help a little.

Best of Luck!
