Data and settings in moved or copied campaigns

  • Performance statistics: Performance statistics, such as impressions and clicks, don't transfer to the new campaign.
  • Portfolio bid strategies: If you paste or import an item with a portfolio bid strategy to a different account, manual CPC bidding replaces the portfolio bid strategy.
  • Bids and budgets: If you move bids and budgets between accounts on different currencies, the numbers will remain the same, which means the monetary values will change. Please ensure that you're comfortable with the resulting values or that you adjust the values. Google does not take responsibility for adjusting bids and budgets, and is not liable for any consequences resulting from carrying over the same values between accounts using different currencies.
