Unable to upload bid change

Hi, Am trying to increase the bids on all my ad campaigns to "top of the page CPC".  I mark all the keywords and click change bid.

 

I click controll changes and nothing happens. Then upload to adwords.

 

But nothing happens.

 

Is there some steps I'm missing, I does not change in adwords whatsoever.

 

Thanks in advance. BR Emil

That's fine Emil E! Was it successful the second time? I'd suggest using 'Get Recent Changes' first, which will update Editor of any changes you've made to the account. Then you can select keywords (CTRL +A to select all keywords), manually edit the bid and 'Post Changes'. While posting, you should see bid changes in the progress window of Editor.

Let me know how it goes!

Hi there,

 

Are you changing bids through bulk upload or editor? It is also easy to changes bids from the AdWords interface if all campaigns are under Manual Bidding. You just have to select keywords>change Max CPC bids> Raise to top page estimates. Screenshot here

 

Alternately, you can also use 'Top Page CPC' as a flexible bid strategy to automatically set bids to top page CPC.

 

Feel free to write back with questions.

 

Good luck,

Sumanth

Hi Sumanth! thanks for the prompt reply.

I use the adwords editor if that what you ask. I'm new to this, so please bear over with me if its very obvious what to do..
