Copying from Google Ads to Yahoo! Japan

When Search Ads 360 creates new campaigns, ad groups, ads, keywords, and negative keywords as part of a copy operation, only some of the settings are copied from the source campaign, as described below. (See the list of settings you can update in existing copies.)

Campaign settings for Yahoo! Japan

If the destination engine account doesn't already contain a campaign with the same name, Search Ads 360 creates a new campaign and copies the settings listed below.

Some Google Ads settings may have different names or require Search Ads 360 to make adjustments in the destination campaign.
