IP Exclusion at Account Level

Hi There,

 

I'd like to exclude my office IP address and competitor's from all my accounts and campaigns. I've found the option at single campaign level, but i was wondering if it's possible to exclude IP at Account level or to quickly copy the exclusion settings on other campaigns

 

thanks in advance

A nice question; and a nice idea;

Moshe is absolutely right, at the moment IP exclusion is only available at campaign level. Great resource there too, thanks!

Has this been changed yet? This would make my job so much easier and free up alot of time for me to work on other projects, I currently monitor click fraud for over 170 campaigns and to add even 1 IP address to all of them is excruciating.

I can't believe this still isn't available... We also would really like to exclude the office IP from bringing up our ads, lowering our CTR or worse costing us for accidental clicks. We've even asked our account manager and no, there's no way at all to do this in bulk?? Our account has hundreds of campaigns; it simply isn't feasible to do them one by one.

OMG Google!  Seriously...  This seems like a no brainer...   This feature MUST be made available for ACCOUNT LEVEL settings!!  It's crazy to have to manually add your company's IP address and ALL your competitors IP addresses to ALL campaigns?!?!  Google - PLEASE fix this ASAP!!  Thanks!

I can hardly call this a solution. It's only confirming that Adwords has a problem here. Google, please add account-wide IP exclusion, it will make me a happier Adwords user.

Also worth noting that one possible solution here would be to have a bulk edit feature for campaign level IP exclusion, but that doesn't exist either in the AdWords interface. Very frustrating.

Why would Google offer this feature? All it will do is help us save money and that's not what Google's about.
