Hi Bobby,

I find the easiest path is to :

Open Editor and account.
Browse to and select the ad group in question in the top tree.
Make sure you are viewing keywords in the bottom tree. - The keywords should be visible in the main viewing pane.
Jump to your keyword list in excel or where ever it lives - highlight them and copy.
Jump back to editor - click make multiple changes (at the top)
Paste from clipboard or just paste.
Review your list > process.
Review the changes, adjust match types if needed.
Post changes.

You can also get more elaborate by importing files with proper column headings - https://support.google.com/adwords/editor/answer/56501

Hope this helps!

Hi there,

Just click on the Keywords & Tagreting tab on the left hand side and then click add Keyword at the top. When you are done, click "post changes".

Hope this helps
