Changing Keyword Text

When changing a keyword text I remember in the past it used to delete and create a new one

When I try it now I don't see the deleted instance

 

Did something change?

Hello again Ori A.

You are correct; I got confused with "paused keywords". (Since I do not delete KWs - I always pause - should I wish to add them back in the future.)

You can see Deleted Keywords only in the "change history". They are removed from the list.

Hi there

We are apparently under a spam attack - hopefully the engineers at Google are checking the incident..Your question was almost lost...;...:smileysurprised:

Anyway, if I got you correctly, when a keyword is deleted, you need to choose "show all",  from the drop-down menu to see them.

 

Check this help article;

Add, edit, or delete your keywords

Thanks Moshe
Even after I selected "show all" I still can't see my old keyword.
Any chance it's because the keyword has no performance history?

Thanks
