Hi xtopher66,

 

Well Adwords Editor is desktop tool which can be used to do multiple changes in a lesser time.

 

 

Thanks

HI

I think you should use adwords editor

http://www.google.com/intl/en/adwordseditor/

with help of this you will be able to make multiple changes to KWs or destination urls or several other parameters

Hope this helps

Do not agree.

Just because a complicated system is developed is not an excuse to not provide proper customer service.

It is in that respect it is a victim of its own success and we are not talking peanuts in these revenues. We are talking billuons. However, its not just aimed at Google. Amazon, Paypal et al are all not offering this.

There are billions of gas or electricity accounts across the globe and all are accessible by customer services departments direct by phone or email.

Maybe you do not use Sage accounting, however this software system is used by millions of businesses and are directly contactable. Sage indded can me more complicated that Adwords.

 

So dont tell me it cannot be done.

 

The fact in my query is that you cannot bulk ammend keywords matching and I fail to see why that isnt built in to the system. Its poor considering keyword matching is an inherent part of the usage of the system for advertising.
