@Michael T

 

do you mean you are wanting to pull an ad group out of a campaign for the purpose of creating a separate campaign just for it?

 

If so, you can copy and paste the existing campaign, delete the other ad groups in the new campaign that is created, and rename it accordingly.  All your keywords, and ads will be there.   The historical data will not be.  There is no way to transfer that. You can pause this ad group in the old campaign so that you can check the historical data when needed.

If not, can you please expand on your question?

I am changing an ad group into an ad campaign, I am told to copy ad campaigns then delete other ad groups. I was also told there is no way to keep the stats. I do not know how to copy ad campaign

This is done to prevent the confusion and duplication of effort that duplicate threads on the same subject can cause. Thank you for your understanding.

Select the check box beside the campaign.  At the top of the campaign list you should see a button labeled "Edit."  Clicking on it will bring up a dropdown menu.  Select copy, and then paste.
