Does anyone know if there is a limit on the number of Negative Keywords that can be used in a campaign?

Google allocates disk space to adword accounts. When you ad things (campaigns, ads, keywords, negative keywords) they consume space until you run out. In which case you can't add anymore of those things until you delete something.

So to answer your question. You can ad a whole whack of negative keywords. Thousands of them.

mustan9 is incorrect.

Google has limits for number of campaigns, number of ad groups within campaigns and number of keywords within ad groups. These are all set to a standard limit, which can then be increased if you ask your reps - there is meant to eb a limit of 2000 keywords within any ad group (including negative keywords)

Mortgagemax, theoretically, if you use one account and have 5,000 keywords to display ads you can have 45,000 negative keywords.

Here is why, according to AdWords:

There is a 2,000 keywords limit per one ad group and 50,000 keywords limit for one account but you can have a few accounts if you really need them.

You can have up to 2,000 ad groups in one campaign and up to 25 campaigns in one AdWords account.

On the other hand, you can get it straight from the horse mouth here:

And where is the deleted stuff stored then?

limit

In the past (three/four years ago), this could be changed based on the specific request. More keywords, more campaigns...
Not sure how it works today...

You can still get the limit extended if you manage to find yourself a Google Rep to do that for you (which is the most challenging thing to do I believe ;) ). Its worked with me for some accounts whereas for a few others I'm still chasing the Google Rep to atleast reply to my request!
