Adwords Scripts for Non-Techies
I was in the same situation till last year; I knew that Adwords scripts can help me but did not know how to use them. I was scared to mess up my accounts, but I was excited about it because I would no longer have to waste my time on silly things that can be automated so I spent time on learning how bits and pieces of scripts work and how can I use them to accomplish my objectives. I found most of the scripts which I can just copy/paste to get the things done but at times, I needed to tweak the script slightly to make it work.
This blog is for all the non-techies like me who want to make most out of their Adwords Account. I have listed everything that I learnt about using Adwords Scripts so that you can make the most out of it even if you are from a non-tech background.
What are Scripts?
How to use it in Adwords?

You can also schedule a script to run on specific time, so that you get up to date report of what changes it is making. It can be done by clicking +Create Schedule and select the time you want the script to run.
Check if there are any bugs or errors found in the script. If everything looks fine, Run the script. Once the script has run, check if it has made changes as desired.
