How it works

The Overview page shows a selection of cards featuring performance highlights and other useful insights curated for you by Google. Each card is designed to reveal an aspect of your account's performance at a glance. Over time, we'll continue adding more types of cards, so keep checking your Overview page to discover even more insights.

Before you begin

To view the Overview page, you'll need to be invited to the new AdWords experience. Once you have access, you’ll see the Overview page each time you sign in to your account.

To learn more about the different cards on your Overview page, read About the Overview page.

Instructions

The cards featured on your Overview page are selected by Google based on your campaign settings and account performance. While you can't change the types of cards that appear, you can refine what each card shows.

How to change the date range

Click the date range in the upper right of the page. The date range will update for all of the cards at once. You can also compare two time ranges.

How to change the type of metrics shown

Click the arrow next to the metric name you'd like to change, and select your preferred metric.

For example, the "Day & hour" card shows your click data by default, but if impressions are more important to you, click the down arrow next to "Clicks" and change your choice to "Impressions."

Changing the metric on one card won't change the metrics used on other cards.

How to change the scope of the page

The cards on the page and their data change depending on what level of your account you're viewing. When you sign in to your account, your Overview page will show you account-level data. If you click into a campaign or ad group, you'll see data about those items instead. 

There are two ways to get to the Overview page for a specific campaign or ad group:

  1. In the "Campaigns" card on the account-level Overview page, click the name of the campaign you'd like to see data for. Or, from the campaign-level Overview page, click the name of the ad group within the "Ad groups" card that you'd like to see data for.
  2. In the navigation panel along the far left side, click the name of a specific campaign, then click Overview in the page menu to see its Overview page.
