Hi,

 

So it isn't possible to remove segments that are showing 0 data in the AdWords interface itself. Lakatos' idea of downloading the report and then only focusing on parts of the report that have data is a good workaround though.

Hi Maxroizer,

 

In case you only wish to see rows where Impressions=0, then you're advised to apply the filter:

 

Impressions=0

 

On the other hand, in case you only wish to see rows where Impressions>0, then you'll need to sort the raws by Impressions and disable the ones where Impressions=0.

 

Alternatively you may want to download the data to an excel file which is specifically meant for special tasks associated with data base management.

 

I hope I did not misunderstand the query.

 

Best,

Lakatos

Hi Lakatos

 

I tried that. It doesn't work. I would like to hide Segments that have 0 values. The filter only applies to the active Campaign, Ad Group, Keyword, Ad, or Display Network URL. It does not work for segments unfortunately.

Thanks Lakatos and Alys,

 

You are correct. By exporting data I can filter out the segmented 0 fields, however I would like to make realtime edits based on my findings. When I segment conversions in Campaign, Ad Group, Keyword, or Ad view, it only displays conversions that have a conversion value of >0. However the networks segment displays the 0 values. Thereby reduceing my visual space by 1/4 So I'm sure Google can implement hiding the segment for all segment views (if impressions =0), with an option to toggle it on or off.

 

Thanks!

I'm sorry I mixed up .xlsx and the UI for a moment. Yep, Adwords could do that, however, I don't think they wanna compete with excel....Robot LOL
