Updating Bids in Bulk

 4:53 pm on Jun 12, 2006 (gmt 0)

So, I wanted to increase the base CPC's for all keywords in one of my campaigns today...

After 20 minutes of trying to do it via their web interface (and receiving an error message each and every time I clicked on the "Apply to all keywords" button), I found my only option was to export the campaign to CSV, edit the bids in the CSV file, and reupload said file.

This is ridiculous. Seriously.

Grrr....so I'm trying to use the export-->update bids-->import technique on another campaign since it worked for that last one.

I've just received 5 consecutive:
"System error. Please contact MSN Customer Support and refer to this error number:1."

I have now officially spent 70 minutes trying to update my bids this morning.

I finally was able to update the bids in my second campaign. I made similar changes to my google adwords campaigns as well...

Time to Update Bids:
Adwords: 2.5 minutes
Adcenter: 78 minutes

"Error number 1" ... The oldest error in the adCenter book. XD Didn't know it still existed. Clear your cache, maybe cookies and try a fresh browser, (thought they had fixed this by now). ((Hate clearing cookies)).

PS - Did you contact support? They are reasonably good at letting you know this means you "need" to clear your cache and cookies. Still puzzled as to why...
