Hi,

 

Can you please send me an article on how to merge adgroups together?

 

Also, I would like to know how I can locate duplicate keywords and phrases in multiple, disparate, locations.

 

Thanks!

Hello Brad !

 

Merging groups is a 2 step operation, you can use the online interface to select all the keywords then "More actions" then Copy to the ad word you want to keep and you must check the keyword bid too. Then do the same with the Ads . After you check that all is ok pause the old Ad Group , because if you deleted it just hides the data from the interface, it will not be permanently deleted.

 

You can also use the AdWords editor for the copy-paste operations and for duplicate key search. Here is the documentation for finding duplicates
