In many AdWords accounts this last week we started to see a link at the top to try out the beta version AdWords control panel. I am still testing it, but so far there are things I like and things I don’t.
I do like the ability to make many changes on one screen such as change position, CPC, and status on the ad group detail page without having to click into the edit keyword page.
But I hate the simplistic look and feel of the introduction of the graphs on just about every page. I have 7 computers and on the weekend I check accounts on a smaller screen monitor and the new interface is totally screwed up on this screen. I have to scroll to the side to see what I want which is highly annoying.
I’m still checking it out, so if you’ve kicked its tires a few times leave me a comment about what you like and what you don’t like. If you haven’t looked at the beta yet, check out your AdWords account near the top right for a link to checkout the beta version.
