Google rolling out new UI today

 3:02 pm on Apr 21, 2009 (gmt 0)

I asked my Google rep to turn on the new ui for one of our clients and they told me they were not doing that anymore because they are rolling out the UI live to everybody very soon. I was just in my account and clicked on something and it just switched over. I think they may be rolling out today.

It's going to be available in video form on the AdWords YouTube channel, from what I understand. (In case you can't make the webinar)

Please make this new interface work in Opera. This is extremely frustrating.

Many web developers use Opera to browse the net... and so I cannot begin to understand why Google would not support Opera.

It is EXTREMELY annoying, when viewing keywords or ad variations within an ad group and then clicking to view the list of all ad groups within the campaign you're working on, to have to ALWAYS click on the "Ad groups" tab since the system keeps either the Keywords or Ads tab active. If I click on the name of the campaign to get back to that level, it's because I'm wanting to view the list of ad groups, not an even longer list of keywords or ad variations. And yes, the left side bar would solve this problem if it wasn't truncated to only show a list of 200 ad groups...which makes the left nav bar COMPLETELY WORTHLESS to me.

As I have been doing each week for quite some time, I'll be passing this latest feedback along to the 'new UI' team in this week's Advertiser Feedback Report - along with anything else posted here by, oh, say about 10:00 pm PDT tonight.

Many thanks.

Please, do make the Adwords new beta interface work with Opera.

It seems that Opera is always forgotten by some Google products.

Your feedback has been included in this week's Advertserr Feedback Report, eduardomaio - as will be the case for any other 'new UI' feedback added here in the next four hours or so.

I also send all 'new UI' feedback directly to the entire UI team - at their specific reqest.

Thanks and regards,

I just created a new ad group within one of my campaigns. The experience of saving the new ad group and being redirected to the full list of ad groups within that campaign is TERRIBLE. I just created that ad group, I want to be directed to the ad group I just created so I can continue to edit it and build it out. Please update this functionality so it will mirror how it's done in the old UI. Terrible experience.

I get kicked out of the new UI and am forced to log back in all the time when I use the Keyword Tool. If I have been using the new UI for a couple hours, and then I try to access the keyword tool, it acts like I have to access the old UI for the Keyword Tool to work and this forces me to log back in...like it has timed out or something.

AWA, just a minor bug to report... Early on in this thread, I wrote:

I just noticed a little bug, too -- the new UI determines Today's date using your local computer's clock and ignores the Time Zone setting for your account. Right now, my account says Today is April 22 if I use the new UI, but it says Today is April 21 if I use the old UI.

It looks like this has been fixed for the most part, but the graph at the top is still affected by an inaccurate date on the local computer.

Thanks for the lastest additions to this thread - all of which are now included in this week's Advertiser Feedback Report.

In addition, your comments will be sent directly to the 'New UI' team - at their request.

Much appreciated. ;)

AWA I want to add my compliments on the new UI features, BUT scrolling keywords and page loading is VERY slow. I am using Chrome .39 (the latest iteration as of 8/8/09) and Java 6 update 15, (the latest as of 8/8/09). I too have the left right scrolling issues, and I am using a 900 by 1440 screen.
How about a "add negative keywords" button at the TOP of the keywords pages, and adding back in the ability to know whether we have already added a neg keyword, when we try to add it in again . . I have 1500 or more neg keywords so scrolling is not an easy possibility in the new UI

I'll pass your feedback along this evening, lcapelis - along with any other feedback added to this thread before about 10:00 PM PDT.

Got Feedback?



 3:29 am on Aug 19, 2009 (gmt 0)

Anyone have any advice on Macs...should I switch to Chrome? Would it make this faster? The lack of speed is debilitating.


 1:06 am on Aug 20, 2009 (gmt 0)

There was an error with your operation. If you were trying to make a change, it may not have saved. Please refresh this page to try again. Please sign in to AdWords again. If the error continues, log out of your AdWords account, then log in again and return to this page.

This error is BRUTAL. I've been through the process 4x of entering ad copy, keywords, CPCs, etc. after refreshing my browser once, signing out once, and trying in a different browser.

What to do?


 1:16 am on Aug 20, 2009 (gmt 0)

What to do?

Report the problem to Google (perhaps using the new interface feedback form [adwords.google.com]), and in the meantime use Adwords Editor instead...?

This new interface does not work with iphone, I hate it.

I loved the ability to check/update little things from my iphone, no matter where I was. What am I supposed to do now when I am on the road? Killing the old interface and not providing an alternative solution for a hand held device is just unprofessional and bad for business.

Please get something going for the iphone!


 9:53 pm on Aug 20, 2009 (gmt 0)

Even though the new interface does have some annoying idiosyncrasies to it (like being horrendously slow on an older computer) I've found that some of the new things they've added do indeed make spot optimizations much easier.


 9:53 pm on Aug 20, 2009 (gmt 0)

I'll be passing your verbatim feedback along to the new UI team, later this evening, as I have done for many weeks past.

About 7 hours until the report goes out - so plenty of time for more.

Thanks very much,

Has anyone found a way to show conversions in the columns on the new UI? The conversion tracking tab has been lost altogether. Where did it go?

The new UI is terribly frustrating. Is there any way to go back to the old one?


 5:20 pm on Aug 27, 2009 (gmt 0)

Have you tried the Filters and View drop down for customizing columns?

And no, there's no way to go back to the old one at this point.

Sorry to hear that it is frustrating - and here's hoping that it'll seem like second nature before too long.

netmeg is correct that it is no longer possible to go back to the previous interface - so below are a couple of resources to help you come up-to-speed with the new interface:

I used the spreadsheet edit function for the first time today... I copied two lines, pasted them at the bottom, changed the keywords to the new ones I wanted to add, and clicked Save. The interface gave me the following error: "Your changes could not be saved because they contained errors. See highlighted cells for details."

The Max CPC cells in the new rows were highlighted as the problem. I'm using CA$ and the bid values are shown as "CA$1.00" (left aligned). If I edit those cells to replace the bids with "1", it reformats them to "CA$1.00" (right aligned) and then I can save without an error.

This is an annoying bug.

Your feedback is now included in this week's Advertiser Feedback Report, Rehan. Many thanks.

Still plenty of time for more - roughly 6 hours till the report goes out.
