How many versions of google Adwords exist?

Hello Google Community,

my name is Davide and i have been running an online clothing store for a month. Unfortunately, i have really poor tecnology skills, didn't even know the existance of Google Adwords since few weeks ago.

Well, as we all do, i need to promote my business and i'm currently getting familiar with this tool watching tutorial videos.

 

Basically i have started my campaign, i can not figure out if there is only one version of Google Adwords or more. In few words, my Google Adwords, looks so different, it is very poor and basic and lots of features are missing from other versions i have watched so far. I can even edit my personal details going back from step 2 to step 1!

 

I have attached a screen shot of my page below, and link of the video i was looking at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uhBCmC2FTO0.

If anyone could help would be very much appreciated. Thanks a lot! Davide

Hi @Davide A

 

Welcome to AdWords Community. 

 

To your question, there are two different versions for AdWords - Google AdWords and AdWords Express. The screenshot you have shared is for the main/primary version. The screen you are on at the moment is start/welcome screen for new accounts. Here you are presented with basic options to get you started easily and quickly with your first ad campaign.

 

Once you have created your first campaign, you will land in the main dashboard where you will come across all those features/options which you see missing here.

 

Thanks

Hi Davide,
There is only one version of Adwords and it is not something like that you have update like latest version of software.

I would suggest you to first learn Adwords basics before running any adwords campaign or hire professional to do that otherwise there are chances that your campaign won't perform well.

First check this @ https://support.google.com/adwords/answer/6146252?hl=en

Hi @Davide A to add to @Ratan-Jha's reply, to confuse things further, you may see different options and settings within the main version of AdWords depending upon what Campaign type you select.  When you create a Search or a Display Campaign, you'll be offered two choices, one of which presents a limited set of features and one which shows all available features.  We often see questions here from people looking for a setting that's not visible on their screen because their Campaign is only showing the limited set.


Not something you may need to worry about now, but bear it in mind if you find yourself searching for a setting that doesn't seem to exist...
