Unmanageable Size message

Hey everyone (especially AWA if you're around)

I've come back to using Adwords after a brief pause...

I've never really had more than 5,000 keywords in the account....

So, this week I deleted all campaigns and started from scratch.... (for my new venture :-))

I've added 50,000 keywords in 3 campaigns. These keywords are all very important and related to my category. I'm getting this message (unmanageable size) and the account will not let me add more keywords!

Imagine this....I need to go to 500,000 KEYWORDS!

I use these same 500,000 keywords with Overture and I have great success.....

I called adwords and I've even spoken to a "specialist" and both said that it will take ONE WEEK for them to decide on whether they will ALLOW this or NOT.

What is one to do? Should I open more accounts? Will I get in trouble if I do? Should I wait? (Time is money!) If they say no, what then? (LOL)

Thanks fellas in advance for your attention and replies...

Are all your keywords broad matched? Maybe the issue is that you unknowingly have so many duplictes in the 50,000. Or are you using exact matching or just lots of products? I'm sure this has some relevance on the issue.

50k sounds like a limit for intro-level Adwords users. If you communicate how much business you do elsewhere, I'm fairly certain they'll raise your limit. Just ask nice and be patient.
