How To Import from AdWords

With Gemini, you can perform bulk uploads from AdWords Editor account files.

That means, if you’ve already created campaigns in other online advertising programs, like Google AdWords, you can import them into Gemini, without having to reproduce them manually.

The AdWords Import/Editor tool is designed to save you the time and effort if you had to recreate your account manually.

Once your campaign is uploaded, you can make changes to fine-tune your campaigns based on your advertising goals.

Download Full or Partial Account File

To take advantage of the tool, you can simply download a full or partial account file from the AdWords Editor and upload it into Gemini.

  1. You select Tools > Import from AdWords to import your AdWords Editor account file.

Gemini provides support for AdWords imports up to 2GB for an uncompressed file and 300MB for a compressed file.

Objects Imported from AdWords

The objects that are supported for AdWords import are similar to those in the Gemini bulk upload schema. For example:

  • Campaigns
  • Ad Groups
  • Keywords
  • Negative keywords
  • Ad
  • Sitelink Extensions
  • Location targets
  • Upgraded URLs

Because of differences and variations in products, not all the information will be imported.

Once you’ve performed an import, follow these best practices:

  • Make sure that you review your campaigns and results file, so that they’re set appropriately.
  • Check language targeting, keyword libraries, ad extensions, network distribution settings and experimental traffic settings.
  • Keep in mind that only negative keywords are supported at the campaign level (positive keywords are not supported or ingested).

Product Listing Ads

Product Listing ads are available only to advertisers with a Yahoo Account Manager. Product Listing Ads updates are supported via Upload from AdWords. Before importing your Product Listing bulk updates, be sure to create a Merchant Center account, establishing your data feed and initial Product Listing structure.

To create your product listing ads, you must first create a Merchant Center Account. Contact your account manager for help on setup.

Once your Merchant Center is established, use either the Gemini bulk upload or Upload from AdWords to add and update your Products bulk structure.
