Hi,

I have a quick question regarding switching to and from automatic bidding: if I go from manual bidding to automatic bidding, then BACK to manual bidding (in the event that automatic doesn't yeild better results), will the old manual bids be automatically reapplied, or do I have to reajust bids for each keyword all over again ?
Thanks in advance !

Not really my question but thanks anyways...

I was talking about bidding for individual keywords, from manual bidding to automated bidding and back again.

Sorry;

I apparently was distracted, and had a kind of a "blackout" and "read" "payment"; Smiley Embarassed

Every time you switch bidding,  you'll have to set the bid. There is no "undo" that reverts to the old value. The records of the old bids  can be found in the account's  history.(My change history)

Hi RH, an option might be to use the AdWords Editor to export elements from your Account now before the change, then import that file back into the editor if you want to revert.

 

You'd have to be careful what you exported and be sure not to overwrite any changes you made while under Automatic bidding, but it might be an option.
