Ok, if you made that in Photoshop I'm going to be very upset ;)

Please, oh please let there be a bulk upload tool.

I found this elsewhere, but it could well be fake. Lets hope not!

The screenshot with the bulk upload tool is taken from Google's contextual ad promotion - fingers crossed it'll appear soon.

I work for an online marketing firm and we have an account rep that does bulk uploads for us when we send in the Excel sheet. They have the capability, so I'm sure its only a matter of time before they let everyone do it.

Yeap. If you have a dedicated account manager, I believe they provide this service already but I think it's still a somewhat manual process for the rep. However, this bulk upload tool is invaluable, almost every other PPC company out there has had one for many years now, and adwords was very sorely lacking in this important feature. Let's hope for the best.

A word of caution: With a bulk upload tool and an aggressive boss, it's really easy to increase the size of your campaigns beyond your ability to manage them effectively.

When the tool does become available, start modestly!

I just looked at the presentation. It looks like the "Bulk Upload" tool on the presentation slide is GONE!

Can someone check and let me know if they see the same?

I guess that feature is not ready for prime-time yet.

You know, bulk upload may make it too hard to keep up with all the irrelevant submissions that they have to review by hand!

Now it simpler, there is just so much you can submit at a time. If they make it too easy to submit thousands of listings, their editors will have a hard time trying to determine the good and the irrelevant ones.

What do you think?

What would be interesting to see with bulk upload is if I can do this to manage my accounts.

1. Download my reports into excel.
2. Import the ROI/conversion info from my tracking program.
3. Sort the keywords by ROI/Conversions.
4. Delete/reorganize/add keywords as necessary.
5. Cut/paste what is necessary into the bulk upload form.
6. Reupload my new keywords/groups/etc

That would be much quicker than looking at all the adgroups individually for large accounts.

Shame, we could really benefit from this right now.

We have a campaign about to go live with over 300,000 terms and have just realised that Ad groups are limited to 2000 terms.

This is going to be a big manual effort.

Heheh - I've been away from the Forum since Thursday evening, so haven't seen recent posts here till this morning.

Not sure how much chatting I can do on this subject, though. I can certainly listen, however - and pass along feedback.

I'll be away from my computer for most of the rest of the day, but will return in the late afternoon. In the meantime, I've just vented a bit about massive amounts of keywords in another thread. ;) Since it is sort of related to this thread, here's the link:

Not really, Adam_C.

In general, I'm not able to talk about future plans for AdWords - and this is especially true now, during our quite period.

I think that lots of folks are not aware that the quiet period extends well beyond the IPO. I believe it is for an additional 25 days.

With all that said, I can certainly pass on feedback - which I've already done in this case. ;)
