Hi its Petra here! Today, I’m going to show you how to find where your changes have been made in Google Ads.

This “Change History” feature definitely comes in handy, especially if you are changing from one agency to another or when you’ve got more than one person working on your ad account at the same time. You can see what kind of changes have been made in the past, and track changes down to specific dates.

1. When would you need to find out what changes have been made in your Google Ads account?

If an agency or freelancer has been working for you, you can see what changes they’ve made to your account. If you or your team member has been working on your account and can’t remember what it is you’ve done, you can go in and check to see what changes have been made.

2. Where is the report that shows you the history logs?

To find the history logs you need to go into your Google Ads account and down the left side you’ll see the campaigns. Select the campaigns you’re interested in on the far left, or if you click on the link “Campaigns” it will give you a list of all your campaigns as well.

Once you’ve selected a campaign, you can see a link for “Change History” down the bottom. When you click on Change History it will show you the change log for that campaign.

Note: You can look at change history for the whole account as well, but it may be a bit busy.

3. What information can you get from the history logs?

The change logs will tell you:

  • which user made the change
  • the date and time change is made
  • what the change was that was made
  • the specific campaign
  • the specific ad group

4. Can you filter down to different types of changes, or specific users?

Yes, you can drill down to only certain types of changes. If you’re in “All Changes”, you’ll be able to see all of them. If you want to go down to just particular types of changes, you can choose from the options across the top of the history log. Options include Account Change, Ad Change, Bid Change etc.

You can also add a filter so you can search for a particular user, a particular date, a particular campaign or whatever it is that you want to search for.

Hopefully that’s helped you out. See you later!

I have been working with Petra for over a year now after changing from a much larger digital marketing provider and I could not be more pleased with the service and results my business is achieving.

With my previous providers I felt disconnected with limited communication. Petra on the other hand provides me with knowledge and information in a language I can understand that helps me make informed decisions not just about digital marketing but also my e-commerce business as a whole.

Petra has helped me navigate seasonal drops in trade creating a strategy that helped us grow and establish a healthy position in the market. It is an absolute joy to work with someone who loves what they do. I have complete confidence in recommending Petra to anyone considering e-commerce digital marketing, she is efficient, trusted and a true professional.

I engaged Petras services because I was looking for someone to manage my google ads for my ecommerce business. I got that and SO MUCH MORE.

I was always very intimidated by google ads. I simply could not get my head around how to run and optimise a successful campaign, so I did not use it.

Then someone recommended Petra and my world changed. She is very data orientated, very analytical and razor focused on the small details, everything I am not good at. I never ever log into my google ads because I know Petra and her trusty team are all over it, and my google ads continue to drive very profitable traffic to my ecommerce store.

Since having Petra on my team I have grown considerably and I get about a 10x ROAS from my google ad spend. She has an open door and always has time for me and my million questions.

To top that all off, she is also a super nice and friendly person and has become a customer and huge fan of my brand. What more could you want! .

Your attention to detail is beyond what I had expected. The detail of the data is incredible. The best part though was to learn the profile demographic - which is very different to whom I think I've been trying to target through social.
