Bulk Edit Keywords

Is there a way to bulk edit the status of my keywords?

Ex: Change from Broad to Phrase, without having to click each one individually?

 

Thanks!

Hi Tom,

 

In AdWords Editor - you can easily edit match types for existing KWs or copy/paste to create new KWs with a different match type.  It's a function of highlighting the KWs and changing one setting in the panel.

 

I find AE much more efficient for tasks like this.

 

Hope this helps!

Many thanks, have spent too much time on Analytics and just getting up to speed on Adwords. :-)

You should remember that changing the match type is essentially deleting the original keyword and creating a new one. You may just want to test the match type change--in that case you might prefer to just pause the original keywords and add the ones with the new match type.

 

Just FYI.

Have you noticed this? Now "bulk editing" keywords is possible (and very easy). The Edit button of the keywords table offers a totally new way of "bulk Editing" the keywords. Even "Bulk changing" the keyword's match! No need to use the "AdWords Editor" for this. In one word: Great!

 

Try It Now!
