AdWords Alerts no more - long live Analytics

Hi

 

I had som problems with alerts for mý client accounts (basically, they stoped being sent by email) in my MCC and after having posted a ticket to AdWords support, who put some technician to look at my MCC, I finally got the message that they couldn´t fix it and that AdWords alerts would be discontinued anyway!

´Horror´, I thought, ´how can I then possibly supervise and follow every little adjustment in all my clients acounts´.

 

Desparately I started looking for a solution and - happily enough - found out that custom alerts has been implemented in Analytics, and although it will be a little more cumbersome to set up and perhaps not as customizable as AdWords-alerts, it´s surely better than no alerts at all.

Hi David;

Custom alerts are going to be shut down at the end of the month !(June 30th)

Google says:

  • Many of these actions can now be done by creating automated rules - a tool within AdWords that enables you to schedule automatic changes to specific parts of your account based on the criteria that you specify.

Yes, I read that.
I don´t think automated rules is any good substitute for alerts though.
