deleting old campaign and starting a new one

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

I'm trying to find the steps required to:

 

1) Delete an old/outdated campaign

 

and,

 

2) Start a new campaign

 

(My hunch is that this is a simple process; but, I'm not seeing a delete button for the old campaign. Nor am I seeing a "start new" campaign element in the UI...)

 

Thanks!

Hi,
You can not permanently delete a campaign in adwords, you can just remove that campaign, as long as account is active, the removed campaigns also present.
You can select “All but removed” so that you can avoid seeing the removed campaigns.
Whenever you want, you can see the removed campaigns, so that you can have a record of history.
Before it was named as Delete, now it is named as Removed.

Hi Donn,

As already explained, you can not delete a campaign/adgroup in adwords. You can only remove it but history will be there after removing.

 

Now, how to remove and add campaigns.

 

  1. To remove a campaign, select that particular campaign(check the box corresponding to that campaign), click the green bullet and select removed.
  2. To add a new campaign, simply click +campaign tab and select the campaign type to continue.

 

Sharing a screenshot for your reference.
