Free pay per click management tools

There are many tools that a PPC manager will use to make their lives easier when it comes to pay per click management. The great thing about all the tools listed here are that they are FREE.

Adwords Editor

My favourite tool is Adwords editor. This is the first tool you should download even before you create your first campaign because it will save you so much time. The time saver is the ability to copy and paste any elements of your account and then search and replace it. Common keyboard shortcuts work seamlessly in Adwords Editor. Not only can you make campaigns for Adwords but Yahoo and Bing both allow you to import CSV files directly from Adwords Editor.

Adwords Keyword Tool

The online Adwords Keyword tool is great for keywords research. Just go to the opportunities tab of your Adwords account. The nice thing about this tool is that you can set the location or your choice, so that you can get a good idea of traffic and competition levels in your own area. Another advantage is the ability to export data to Excel, which allows you to see competition values instead of the ambiguous graph online.
