Manager Accounts (MCC): About labels in manager accounts

In your manager account, you’ll notice 2 types of labels:

  1. “Labels”: Created and assigned to campaigns at the individual Google Ads account level
  2. “Account labels”: Created and assigned to accounts at the manager account level

This article explains the difference between labels and account labels and shows you how to view them in your manager account.

Labels

In your manager account, you can see labels that are created and assigned for campaigns in individual Google Ads accounts. You can view these labels in the Labels column of your account’s Campaigns page. You can also filter your view in the Campaigns page to see only campaigns with specific labels.

Note: As a manager account (MCC) user, you can manage campaigns more efficiently by creating, editing, and applying labels to specific child accounts or across all campaigns. You can also create and manage labels anywhere along the path of a manager account to a child account level.

Account labels

Account labels are created by a manager account and assigned to sub-manager accounts or individual Google Ads accounts. You can use them to help create meaningful groupings of client accounts. Note that only manager accounts can view account labels; they can’t be created or viewed at the individual Google Ads account level.

This article will show you just how to view and filter by account labels in your manager account. To learn how to create, remove, and edit account labels, read Create and edit account labels in manager accounts.
