Is conversion history transferred too when copying a campaign?

Hi good afternoon, maybe morning or night for you Smiley Happy

 

I was just wondering, as the thread title says, what happens when I copy an item that has a long history of conversions and is working therefore with an effective CPA bid strategy. I know that the copied item shows 0 clicks, 0 impressions, etc... but is that conversion history information also transferred somehow that can be used, or does the copied&pasted item need to start from zero?

 

Secondly, does this apply equally for adgroup and campaign level?

 

Thanks so much!

Best regards and have a nice week.

Hi Arturo,

Unfortunately when you copy and paste an element (including campaigns and ad groups) AdWords will view that element as brand new and will not consider historical data such as conversions.
