Hello Richa,

 

AdWords Editor won't show up categories for Dynamic Search Ads. You can manually ad categories there. But you will still need to log into the browser interface and check what categories AdWords identify on your website. If you do not get categories in the browser interface, you won't be able to use it in the Editor as well. 

 

Here's what Google says in this regard -

 

AdWords Editor allows you to post anything for the "Category" value. However, to ensure that your ads are targeted properly, we recommend that you check your AdWords account for categories that the Dynamic Search Ads system has identified. (Entering your own category instead of choosing from AdWords' categories might prevent the system from properly targeting sections of your website.

 

Thanks

Hi Richa,

Yes there is no list for categories, you have to mention it manually through dynamic ads target tab in the editor and selecting category=.....

Ratan,
Thanks for the response, but the categories option in my DSA campaign is not enabled and I can not enable it. I can only add the "All Webpages" section. Do you have any advice.
