Campaign Import Tool

Use Rank Ranger's Campaign Import tool to easily create multiple campaigns at the same time through bulk upload into your Rank Ranger account.

Create one import file for each batch of campaigns that will share the same tracking mode and search engines.  

There are two import options:
  • Version 1: multiple campaigns (no keyword tags*)
  • Version 2: single campaign with keyword tags
    *Keyword tags can also be added via the Bulk Import Keywords option (select Delete and replace existing Tags)

The Campaign Import Tool is located in the Tools > Utilities section of Rank Ranger.
