On Friday, September 23rd, the AdWords system will be unavailable from approximately 9 p.m. to 11 p.m. PDT [?] due to system maintenance. While you won't be able to log into your accounts during this short downtime, your campaigns will continue to run as usual. We apologize for any inconvenience.
First, create two or more ads within the same Ad Group. Try out different headlines or highlight different offers—the sky’s the limit. Our automatic ad optimization will then show ads with a higher clickthrough rate (CTR) more frequently. The served percentage number, located under your other ad statistics in each Ad Group, will show you how often each ad is being shown. You can then refine the text of ads which are being shown less often, or delete them from the Ad Group entirely. To make sure you have this feature enabled, follow the instructions here.
“Is there an API that I can use to somehow add and delete my ads dynamically as I need to rather than continually having to do it manually?” – Clint W.
“Is there an easy way to change all the URL's in my ads at once for any given campaign? I have 1-5 ads running for any given campaign and find that I have to update each ad URL individually. How can I do this more quickly?” – Paula B.
“It would be nice to search for campaigns by URL. For example, I want to see all ads that have tracking code 'x', or all ads that don't have tracking code 'x' in the URL.” – Brandon H.
