Pauses impressions for keywords. The keywords may be for different campaigns or ad groups.


Disabled method. Use version 5 of the API.

For information about the compatibility of methods between versions Live 4 and 5, see the Migration guide.


Attention. This method only supports campaigns with the “Text & Image Ads” type. To manage keywords in all types of campaigns, use the Keywords service in version 5 of the API.

For an ad group, at least one keyword or retargeting condition must be active. When trying to stop all active keywords in a group (when there aren't any active retargetings), an error will be output for each of these keywords with the code 195 (this error does not cause the entire operation to be canceled and does not affect the success of stopping keywords that are related to other groups).
