Google released a new version of its AdWords Editor yesterday with several noteworthy updates.
Advertisers are now able to make changes in a spreadsheet or custom application and import CSV files directly into the editor. Google has also sped up the download process. Advertisers can download individual campaigns they want to edit and leave the rest of the account alone.
The keyword opportunities tool has received a few changes as well. On the "Search-based Keywords" tab (the AdWords Editor version of the Search-based Keyword Tool) Advertisers can now view and organize new keywords by topical category so they find the keywords that are most relevant to an account. When that data is exported, the keywords opportunities columns (such as volume and competition) will also be included.
