Is it possible to import a google ads campaign from one Google account to another?

I have a Google ad campaign set up in one account and would like to copy it, export it from that account, and move it into another Google account. 

 

Is this possible?


What would the process be to accomplish this?

 

Thank you in advance for the help!

Hi, KatePettit - 

 

The simplest way to do this would be through AdWords Editor, the offline editing tool that Google offers. Using it, you can export the campaign (copy it and save it to an Excel file is, IMO, the easiest way), then import the relevant data into the other account. 

 

If you're not already using it, you can download AdWords Editor here

 

Good luck!

 

(P.S. Your performance data and metrics will not be copied from the original account to the new one. You can only move structural things--Ad Groups, keywords, ads.

 

And, of course, you'll want to carefully double-check all campaign-level settings in the new campaign--those don't always copy over and you'll want to make sure they're what you want.)

Also do the campaign extensions get ported using this method?

Hi there, 

 

Yes you can import/export location extensions and sitelink extensions using AdWords Editor. 

 

Hope this helps!

With Adwords Editor, could import the campaigns from a different account to new one. But, the campaigns imported cannot be viewed when logged in through browser. Is there any way to fix this?
