negative keywords adding on editor

Hey,

 

I'm using adwords editor to upload in bulk my negative keywords to ad groups inside one campaign. the thing is, when i do it, it uploaded all my negative keywords inside each ad group.

i checked the box saying "add as ad group level" and still i get each ad group with all the negative words instead just one in each group.

it only happens on my macbook, does editor can't work well on mac?

 

thanks

Hi @Tomer N,

 

AdWords Editor should work correctly with a PC or Mac. Are you following this info in adding the keywords? And are you using the latest version of AdWords Editor?

 

Kind Regards,

 

James

Hi @Tomer N,

 

That's interesting.

 

Upon further research, I do see that certain iOS versions can have some quirks with AdWords Editor.

 

AdWords Editor version 11.6 works with Mac OS X 10.7 or later. Do these match up to yours?

 

All the Best,

 

James

In Make Multiple Changes dialog, pay attention to the "Destination" radio buttons on the top left. It looks like you are choosing "Use selected destinations" - with this option, you provide a list of keywords, and they are duplicated in every campaign or ad group (depending on whether you are adding campaign-level or ad group-level keywords) you've checked in the account tree.

 

If instead you choose "My data includes columns for campaigns and/or ad groups", then each row of your data can specify a particular campaign or ad group the keyword should be added to, along with the keyword itself.

Could you show a screenshot of Make Multiple Changes dialog, right before you click Process?
