The Most Underused and the Most Powerful Report in Adwords

Do you really know what searches are triggering your adverts to appear in Google Adwords?

You may think you do but I find that more times than not I can surprise people by showing them what they truly are spending their Adwords budgets on.

Most people think that their adverts are showing for the keywords they are [...]

Yippee. Now you can update your Keywords in Adwords directly from Excel!

If you are like me then you probably prefer to view your keyword reports in Excel. I find it faster to get to the data I want using Excel than I can using the standard Adwords web interface (anyone else notice how slow that is getting these days??).

Which is better?

Bad Google Adwords advice from Google themselves!

You would think that Google would be the best people to offer advice on how to set up and run an Adwords campaign but unfortunately that just isn’t true.
