Hi @Stephen M,


Is it related to AdWords or AdWords Express?


And what do you mean by prepared list?

Do you want to add the search terms as you keywords?

Hi @Stephen M,


@Archit may be right with his questions. Not sure at all, I am just trying to guess what the original query exactly means... Smiley Happy


Drill down to your campaign/ad group, select the Keywords tab, and press the red +KEYWORDS button on the left. Use parenthesis when you type in the keywords one by one and press SAVE when you are done with them.




Also see the above snip. Each keyword should be in a new line.
