Can I program what time of day and days of the week my Ad runs?

I want to turn on Adwords after 9AM and shut it down after 7PM every day.  Can I preprogram this without manually going in all the time and shutting it off, etc. every day?

Hi Ken,

Yes, definitely. You can set up an ad schedule for any (or all) campaigns, so that the ads turn on only during those hours:

1. Click into the campaign you wish to schedule
2. Click on the Settings tab above the table of data
3. Right under the Settings tab, click on the button that says Ad Schedule
4. Click the red +ad schedule button on this page. From here, you can schedule the specific times you want the ads to run. They will not run during any times you do not input here.

Let me know if you have any other questions!

I am using Google Adwords Express. Maybe I'm doing something wrong but it doesn't seem to offer this as an option.

Hi Ken,

Sorry about that, I didn't know you were using Adwords Express as you hadn't mentioned it before. Unfortunately scheduling is not available for AdWords Express. As far as I know, there is not a way to automate the process you're asking about.

If you want more control (automated rules, scheduling, etc.), you might consider switching over to the full AdWords platform.
