Advanced search enables you to search an account for items that match the criteria that you specify.
Apply filters to narrow your search
Click the search menu icon and select the filter from the drop-down menu that you’d like to apply. You can limit your results to a variety of elements such as campaign type or bid strategy, parent fields such as ad group status, new items, edited items, items with errors, and more. The account tree and type list in the left sidebar can also be filtered to show specific kinds of campaigns, ad groups, and types.
You can also right click on a filter to perform various actions, such as copying, editing, or deleting filters. And as you enter text in the search bar, filter suggestions pop up in the drop-down menu, based on what you’re typing.
Here are a few ways you can use filters for your searches:
Example: Multiple filters
You can apply multiple filters to get very specific results. Let’s say you want to find all Search Network campaigns that use a Manual CPC bid strategy. In the account tree, select the campaign you’d like to search. Click the search menu icon and select Campaign type. Check the box next to Search Network only. Click the search bar next to the filter you just created and select Bid strategy type. Check the box next to Manual CPC and click Apply.
Example: "Between" filters
Example: "Does not contain any of" filters
Save a search so you can use it again
After entering a search, click the save icon and enter a name for your saved search. To use your saved search, click the search menu icon and select the name of your search. You can also create keyboard shortcuts to reuse a search.
Use text shortcuts
You can enter a search and use text shortcuts to quickly search across a selected type. For example, you can use the search
keyword:pizza to find all keywords with the term "pizza". See the full list of search shortcuts.
