Pause or resume keywords

You can change the status of keywords individually, or you can update multiple keywords at once.

To pause or resume individual keywords, follow these steps:

  1. In the tree view, select the account, campaign, or ad group containing the keywords to update.
  2. Select Keywords.
  3. Select one or more keywords.
  4. Change the Status in the drop-down menu in the edit panel, or select the Edit menu > Remove, Pause, or Activate.
To pause or resume multiple keywords, use the Make multiple changes tool. Simply include the new status (enabled, paused, or removed) with each keyword, and the tool will update your keywords in one step. Learn how to edit your keywords.
