AdWords Editor 5.0 Released

Google released version 5.0 (for Windows and Mac) of its campaign managment application. The latest versions includes support for local business ads, an expert picker that lets users save campaigns and ad groups to a CSV file, and the ability to save advanced search settings.

Other new features of Adwords Editor 5.0 include:
  • Draft account for sharing with other AdWords Editor users
  • Splats are available which display warnings/errors to find errors quickly
  • Maximize work space and view more rows in the data view
If you're concerned about losing unposted changes, Google suggests exporting an archive of your account before upgrading.
