Dobar dan! Does anyone have any additional information on file format details for uploading a file to the Keyword Planner?

  

I'm in need of guidance on using "Option 2: Upload file" within the keyword planner. Regarding format, all I can locate is that a comma deliminated (.CSV) file is necessary. (https://support.google.com/adwords/answer/2999770)

 

I've attempted several files and I keep receiving an error with the following detail: "There was an unknown error. Please try again."

 

Hvala in advance!

Erica

Are you exporting the CSV file from Excel? If so, which version of Excel are you using?

How many keywords are you attempting to upload at once, and which web browser are you using?

I typically just copy/paste into the tool directly. But I believe that may have a limit of 1000 at a time. I'm assuming you are over that limit?
