Hi Naresh,

I think it can be done manually with the help of excel sheet using the remove duplicate tool.
Copy your ads from editor to the excel.
Choose the columns with headline, description line 1, description line 2, display url and the destination url only and then use remove duplicate tool and after removing duplicates paste again to the editor.

Please try as I have never done this practically hope it will work.

Apology, I forgot to mention that after copying the ads you need to pause them first before pasting again.(after removing duplicates)

The history of that particular will be still there as you have just paused it and can re-enable any time.
Though the new(copied ads) will accumulate the data from the start but still your account history is already there(even if you have deleted your ads) which will help to speedily cover the QS which depends on the expected CTR(depends a lot on the historical data).

Moreover you can use custom parameter.

You can actually do this more in Editor by adding multiple search conditions one after the other. You don't need excel. You can use Search Builder in Editor across the whole account.

Once you have entered all the search criteria (Headline/desc line/url etc) and found your duplicate ads, remove the ones you wish to remove by hitting delete.

No data is ever deleted. You can view it by selected View All and not View all but removed and going to the time frame you want to see data for ( as long as the ad was running at that time).

Hi Abbie,

Can we choose the multiple fields Headline, desc 1, desc 2, display url and the final url at the same time to remove duplicates via editor only?

I am asking this because sometimes we keep the headlines of few ads same and change only the description lines or vice-versa.
