Feedback for Google - New Keyword Tool

activity.js settings are way too small

I'm enjoying the new keyword tool. Thanks Google.

However the activity timeout period is way too small IMO. On my machines the keyword tool redirects to the Adwords homepage about 70 seconds after a new keyword tool page is displayed. This makes it amazingly difficult to actually study the keywords that you are looking at.

On my machines even if I am scrolling the page, looking at words or thinking about new language options - bang! - I'm on the Adwords homepage again.

Cheers

Glad you are liking the tool pavlovapete. ;)

I am about 99.5% sure that the too-quick timeout you describe is a tech issue and not a 'feature' - and I'd bet that engineering is at work on a resolution.

Yes, I am being a little bit vague - mainly because I am not actually at work today, and, therefore, have not consulted with my usual tech contacts. :)

Thanks AWA for your stunningly quick reply. I'll wait for a bit then.

Looking forward to watching how this tool develops.

Cheers

I'd also like to add that I really miss the ability to create 'scratchpad' of keywords in a list on the right.

It's super quick to just be able to add keywords in the match type needed to the notepad on the right and use that to build NEW adgroups vs. just being stuck with adding to just an EXISTING Adgroup...

I will pass your feedback along this evening, thecloser. ;)

Pavlovapete - I think the issue you described earlier in the thread is still afoot. However, you should not have the time-out issue if you use the tool from within your AdWords account - which is a nuance of which I was not aware earlier.

I miss the ability to zoom and make any of the data larger and easier to read.

None of the new Google UIs are friendly to those with eyesight problems. If you zoom, you lose columns.

Thanks AWA.

I'm not logged in but everything appears to be fine.

No more bouncing to the Adwords homepage (which, while beautiful, offers little in the way of desirable functionalities)

Thanks to you and the engineers for your quick response.

Very glad to hear things are working A-OK for you pavlovapete. I love it when that happens. ;)

eWhisper, I'll pass your feedback along later this evening. I know the team behind the KW tool scans the Advertiser Feedback Report I send out each week for comments about the new tool - and evidently some very lively email discussions have resulted.
