I am trying to download a keywords result for an Excel spreadsheet but it's having a really long lag time. Is there a way to circumvent or address this issue? Thanks!

What do you mean by "long lag time"?

It should be instantly downloaded unless you have there thousands of keywords...Then I would recommend using the Adwords editor.

As stated by the above posted, I would use the Adwords Editor.


  1. Download the Adwords Editor
  2. Click File - OPen Account - Add acocunt & enter your account details
  3. Click view statistics - Whole acocunt and select an appropriate timescale
  4. Go to the kwyrods tab
  5. GO to File - Export to CSV - Export whole account (if you want to download everything)

This should only take a few seconds to run and you will have a CSV with all the keyword data you require.
