Erasing AdWords Keyword History

Importance: AWA

AWA is confused by a member plan for erasing the history of particular keywords in an account, with the goal of increasing bids, showing higher CTR, and thus higher position, faster.

AdWordsAdvisor Says: [Link to quote]

"Anyone know if this a work around to not type in all the new ads for making a new campaign

If I edited all my keywords, copied them to a .txt format. Deleted all the keywords. Saved changes, and then went back into edit keywords, pasted them all in, and then saved changes, would the keywords be counted as new if they were in the same adgroup again and thus now having the 'phantom CTR' instead of their own CTR history?

With the above workaround, the ads are already syndicated, so even through the adgroup didn't have any keywords for a short period of time, are they are still considered approved for syndication, and thus I'd only not be shown on AOL for the few minutes I had no KWs in my adgroup?

AWA, thanks for that clarification. Do you know if the workaround...would work or not? "

OK - to be honest, eWhisper, I haven't fully understood your suggested work around. For example, I am not sure what the intent or goal is.

It seems that you are sort of suggesting a keyword 'transfusion', into an existing Ad Group in an existing Campaign, right?

Would you please describe what the work around is intended to achieve, and give a little more detail? I'll do my best to find out if it'll work.

Sorry I've not undersood it. It must be either be a... (pick one):

* too much coffee day.
* not enough coffee day.

(In any case, I'm blaming the coffee.)
