How do you undelete keywords?

Is it possible to undelete keywords? I see they're there! I accidentally deleted all of my keywords for any active campaign/adgroup.

 

Please help! 

 

Thanks,

Lee

Hi Lee,

 

Just to add to the above, even though you might re activate or add the deleted keyword again, the history associated with the keyword would be lost and AdWords will treat it as a new keyword.

 

Hope this helps you out.

Hi All,

 

As per my understanding, adding a deleted keyword shouldn't lose its history, instead as soon as the keyword is active it will show the associated data it has accrued like clicks, impressions etc. So that ways the keyword history is intact.

 

Please correct me if I am wrong.

Hi Rehan,

 

my experience is that when you renew deleted keywords, their history (clicks & impressions) will appear again. I have always renewed them right after they were deleted. Not sure what happens if there is longer gap (2 weeks for instance).

 

Hope it helps.
