Combining two different adwords accounts into one?

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

I have a new client that wanted to target by location - so they set up three different adwords accounts. We have taken over for them and would like to take the accounts and combine into the one that is linked to analytics.

 

Besides copying and pasting in editor is there a faster way to do it with all settings in tact?

Hello,

1) It is not a recommended procedure for an entity ( company or person) to use multiple accounts because they could end up being suspended because of a double-serving policy violation.

2) The editor can be used to export the entire campaigns and import them in your account. Copy paste can be a more time-consuming task than the export - import features.

3) Not all settings can be moved through the editor . If the accounts are old, you will lose statistics and keywords will restart their status. If you had keywords that had a low avg CPC by restarting the history they will most likely not have the same QS or avg CPC, but it is better to have all details in one account instead of having all accounts suspended because of violating an adwords policy.

4) Have you tried using the My Client Center for your other clients ?

Hello;
consolidate the accounts ASAP to avoid a double serving violation. The easiest way is by using the Editor;
When done: cancel the other two

Thanks for your help. 

Yes, I'm in the middle of the transferring the second account now. I've completed transferring the first into editor. 

 

Once that is done I can begin managing the one account. Can't wait - there are a lot of items that can be improved.

 

Thanks again for the quick reply!
