I was really glad to see this thread return to the top of the page today. After all this time and all these threads, I still think it's excellent when someone adds a post.

There's lots of time before the Advertiser Feedback Report goes out on Thursday night - so keep those cards and letters coming.

I'd want to see my max cpc bids change with dates as well...say i choose "yesterday" in the date range..it'd be gr8 if i got to see how much my bids were for tht day.Going through "my change history" when u have so much data changed is tedious!

For more exact geo targeting, i would like to have the ability to upload only zip codes where i know i have customers. This would require about 18,000 zips. Seems to me would be great feature to get even more granular than current zip geo.

Make Ad Preview Tool give real URLs. Let us copy them at least.

AWA -- It would be super cool awsome if you guys would allow people to have more than 25 active campaigns running under 1 account.

Some of us may actually need more than that for various reasons. Its a pain trying to migrate campaigns so i could start a TV campaign, or something else.

It would really make my life a lot easier.

One thing that would be helpful to me would be, being able to see the stats for search and content impression, clicks, avg position, convs etc when looking at campaign level.

We have to go into each AdGroup to see these stats.

I'm currently running a test of 12 campaigns with 10 AdGroups per campaign, on both search and content. This would be handy to grab stats for the whole campaign, rather than go into 10 AdGrpoups to get what I need.

Many new entries! This is excellent. ;)

Everything is now being copy/pasted into the Advertiser Feedback report - and there are still 2 or 3 hours for further posts, until the report goes out.

Many thanks to you all.

I tend to agree, but have always highly valued the grass-roots nature of these threads - i.e. that they have been started by members other than myself. I really like what that says.

(Cough) So if there are any volunteers out there... ;)

Yet another post from me, and off-topic too!

I didn't want to start a whole new thread to mention that I'll be away until Tuesday, and this thread seems like the best place to bring it up.

I am not feeling the best ever and a couple of hours ago decided that I would take tomorrow, Friday, off to recover a bit. In addition, Monday is the 'Memorial Day' holiday here in the US. So I won't be back to reading and posting until Tuesday.

If someone asks a question and I appear to be ignoring it, that'd be why. ;)

To repeat every some time, two things in regards of search:

- ON/OFF option for search partners
- report like we have for content, let us see where our ads are appearing when we opt for search.

From our perspective, search seems to be the part where Google has the most control over. Yet, not too much data is released, or to paraphrase, the data released is aggregated only.

Furthermore, like we have “search query report”, create “impressions query report”. No need to elaborate the importance of queries that did not trigger click onto our ads.

Got it, smallcompany. Now included, since I luckily took one last look at this thread.

Thanks.

Any late-breaking additions this week? Plenty of time (and space in the report) so please feel free.

Many thanks,

I second smallcompany's request for a methodology for checking landing pages in the ad preview tool. To ensure that Google won't miss PPC revenue, perhaps the ad preview tool should only work when one is logged into an Adwords account.

I also second smallcompany's request for an impression query report.

When reviewing ads in the campaign manager, I would like to be able to see the impressions for only search requests. I don't like having to run a report to see the CTR for search only. I have limited to no interest in seeing CTR for content and search combined.

Create a page with the submission form for reporting ads with invalid display URLs. Fields like at title, ad text, display URL, search query, Google domain, and so on would make it easy for us to pinpoint ads in question. The form should be in the way where we can ad multiple ads at the time. This would save the time to all of us.

I would like to see some better synchronization support on AWE.

A lot of times AWE will randomly download the entire account when you only request recent changes. With large accounts this can take a lot of time. I know it's possible to work on another account in the meantime, but is there any need for this?

Not sure if this is on here, but the ability to block "search partners" the same way you block sites in the content network. I do not want MySpace.com traffic.

Last I checked this was not possible.

I block myspace in the Content Network, and they go away.

Ahhhh, excellent timing on my visit to this thread, as you will see. ;)

First off, many thanks to you all for keeping this thread alive for so long - and so well. I very much appreciate it, and will include all the new feedback from May 30th forward in the Advertiser Feedback Report that goes out tomorrow, Thursday.

Then, having said that, a big Thank You to netmeg who jumped in to start a shiny new thread entitled:

Google AdWords Features I'd Like to See, #11

Gotta love it! Maybe on Friday (if not before) we can shift over to that one?

Thanks a ton, netmeg!
