Create and manage engine track accounts

Remove engine track items from reports

When a customer clicks an ad associated with an engine track account and is redirected to Search Ads 360, Search Ads 360 creates its own campaign, ad group, ad, and keyword to represent the ad that was clicked and the keyword that was matched. These items Search Ads 360 creates are for reporting purposes only. The ad copy itself doesn't appear in Search Ads 360, nor do any of the normal campaign or ad group settings appear.

While you can't create new ad groups, ads, or keywords, you can remove items from Search Ads 360 reports. Removing items from Search Ads 360 reports does not remove the items from the engine, nor does it remove the Search Ads 360 clickserver URL from the items. The removed items still redirect through Search Ads 360, but the data does not appear in Search Ads 360 reports.

If you want to add the item back into Search Ads 360 reports, you can resume the item. All of the metrics that accumulated while the item was removed from Search Ads 360 will appear in Search Ads 360 reports, along with new metrics going forward.
