Hi all, 


I am looking for a trick in the Editor so that I can add the same kw in all of my campaigns but only in the same AG. I can go as far as "make multiple change" & "add multiple kw" but then the number of my campaigns in gianormous and I can t go in each of them and "open" (arrow down) all the AGs and select all the ones I need...too longggg


Is it clear what I need? If not, I ll explain it again.

Honestly, whatever the functionality has been built for AdWords Editor, you cannot go beyond that because of various reasons.


There is an option to add multiple keywords:


Also, there is one option to copy keywords to a different ad group here:


Apart from AdWords Editor, if you are tech savvy and can execute javascripts, then you might be interested in writing one custom script and try that using AdWords scripts

Should be fairly easy with a bit of spreadsheet manipulation.

1) Go to Campaigns tab, perform File > Export to CSV > Current view
2) In the resulting spreadsheet, discard all columns except for Campaign. You now have a list of all campaign names.
3) Create the keyword manually in one ad group, with settings to taste.
4) Copy it, paste into the same spreadsheet, next to the existing Campaign column. Delete the second Campaign column that came with this single row
5) Duplicate the keyword row as many times as you have campaigns. Your spreadsheet should end up looking something like this:

Campaign, Ad Group, Keyword, ...
Campaign1,My AG, my keyword,...
Campaign2,My AG, my keyword,...
Campaign3.My AG, my keyword,...

6) Paste this text into Add Multiple Keywords tool, or Import CSV from Text, or save to a file and do Import CSV from File. In the first case, make sure to select "My data contains destination information" option
