Keyword limit bug

 8:21 am on Aug 25, 2006 (gmt 0)

Hello all,

I've emailed MSN Support on this. Message below. Does anybody know the exact keyword limit per account?

adCenter411, can you help me out on this? The MSN support is taking longer nowadays in repying (sometimes not at all).

Hello MSN Support,

I believe there's a bug in my account. It says "keyword limit reached for an account" when I added keywords.

So I deleted orders totalling 30,000 keywords to free space.

I tried only adding 500 keywords but it still says my keyword limit has been reached. Can you pls. check my account on how many keywords have to be freed up? Can you tell me the exact limit of keywords for my account pls?

Thanks for your time. Pls. advice.

GOD Bless,

I have to ask, how on Earth can you have 30,000 keywords that are somehow related to one site?

I'm learning a new language and could converse at a basic level with 700 words, if I knew 30,000 I'd be pretty darn proficent..

As far as I know, there is currently no keyword limit. Well at least there wasn't when I added my keywords (near 50,000 keywords). I had a rep call me and tell me to send him the keywords through email. Unfortunately, they will not accept a large keyword list if it has any errors in it, such as keywords larger than the char limit, inappropriate keywords, or even repeat keywords. It's very frustrating and very time consuming especially if you don't have a keyword tool which will filter out a list of the unapproved keywords from you main keyword list.

There is definitely a keyword limit. I've reached it. Couldn't tell you what it is, though. There's no way for me to see the total keywords in my account.

I was able to delete some words and add others but it's a SLOOOOW process to find the words to delete. There are no tools to do massive deletes (find and edit keywords).

I did find that paused orders count against the keyword limit so it doesn't help to pause anything. At least that's how it was about a month ago.

Hi guys,

The limit is 100,000 keywords per account. I got the email below:
