The built-in limits are pretty high. If you feel you might wind up with hundreds or thousands of linked accounts, I would suggest that you contact Google directly to discuss the matter.

 

Good luck!

Good morning.

 

This is a complicated question--you have have a "master" MCC with multiple "child" MCCS linked under it, each with multiple individual accounts linked.

 

Maybe if you could explain what your situation is, we could let you know if it's likely to be a problem?

Theresa, 

 

Thanks for responding to my post.  Now that you mention it my question should be about both maximum direct MCC accounts under a single shell account, and if the grandchildren and so on are part of that limit.

 

I haven't been able to find documentation on this, and I don't want to be in a position where we find out in production that we can't create more child accounts under our MCC umbrella account because turns out there is a limit we were never aware of (whether that limit applies to all the children and children's children, or just to the first-level children).

 

Many thanks!

According to the API developer documentation there is a structural limit in that an hierarchy can contain at most 85,000 AdWords client accounts.

 

Just thought I'd jump in on this thread because it's the top search result for "mcc account limit" on Google Smiley Happy
