Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 184.108.40.206
If the client has a reasonably decent existing account and you create a new one, pausing their old one, the new account take a hit through not having the history attached.
I could see a few issues, like people trying to sell old account histories etc, but surely there is a way round it.
Maybe have it so the Google Reps could do the linking of the accounts for you to avoid abuse.
Suspending the entire account, as is currently being done, will affect all campaigns and adgroups in the account, including adgroups that pertain to entirely different websites. Obviously this is not desirable. We advertise for many different merchants and opening a new account for each of them is really not practical.

Secondly, like placement targeted reports, we should be able to create reports where we can find and block search partners which are not performing well. Too old request, but it doesn't hurt to suggest again :)
There's still lots of time for more ideas/suggestions/comments. Heck, there are 8 spots in the report's template, and I'd love to fill them all.
The ability to block domain ads.[..]
If you're having difficulty with this, I'd suggest contacting AdWords support. They'll be able to assist you. ;)
Please give me a keyword tool and a traffic estimator tool in Adwords Editor. This is where I setup my campaign and where I want to expand my keywords.
Right now I have to switch between tools and/or the online interface. I have to copy&paste keywords. I have to use Excel. It's just not a good workflow. Being able to expand keywords in Adwords Editor and having the possibility to refine them with (accurate?) traffic estimates would be so much help.
Let us use a specific destination URL for each target, just like we use them for keywords (in search).
Unique URL for each placement will allow us to track sales accurately and figure which placement converts the best.
- Trademarked terms available in keyword tool (some advertisers have permission to use certain trademarks)
- Conversion stats (by hour) for reports that can report hourly stats
- Ability to bid on Google + Google partner network seperately
- Ability to exclude partners in the Google network for paid search
-Allow advertisers to target more sites (many sites running AdSense ads are not available for placement targeting).
-Allow advertisers to target individual pages on sites. This allows for better targeting.
-Reduce costs for placement targeting. Instead of replacing 4 content network ads, have an option where an advertiser can select to be included with the content network ads. If you have to beat the eCPM of 4 ads, that will limit the number of advertisers who can effectively use placement targeting. Google should be encouraging better targeting, not discouraging it.
I'm genuinely sorry to say the Advertiser Feedback Report did not go out this week (for the first time in a very long time) - due to my working from home at about 50% capacity. I was laid a bit low by illness.
Your two suggestions, plus any that follow, will of course be included in next Thursday's report.
As always - thanks to everyone for keeping this thread alive. I still get a kick out of seeing it at the top of the page, even after all this time. ;)
Often times you will have a number of Ad Groups humming along nicely in a campaign. But you might have a few that need extra attention or where you are conducting testing. It would great if there was a way to highlight these groups in the interface to more easily keep track of them. So there might be a campaign with 70 ad groups, but 5 that are highlighted for this particular week.
While doing this it would be extremely helpful to be able to copy this geo targeting across campaigns or adgroups within the entire account.
The UI for blocking domains on the content network needs to be improved. Input should not be rejected because it contains duplicates of already-blocked domains. Saving to this list should be a 1-click function, not 2, and the button should be above the pagefold.
I recently heard, though, that we might be converting to 8 day weeks here in the US - and that extra day will certainly help.
All that said, many thanks - as always - for the latest posts in this thread. All are copy/pasted into the AFR - and there are still several hours for late-breaking additions.
Also, thanks for those kind words, Cline. ;)
Not sure if it's been mentioned yet, but what would be really handy would be if we were able to do a client id and/or name search within the top level MCC, which would search all levels. Ours go quite deep and it's not always easy to find other colleagues clients when they are off.
