How to Change Your Company Name in Google AdWords
By Richard Bashara
During the Google AdWords setup process, users are asked to choose between manual or automatic billing, and to provide personal information such as the name of a company an advertiser might be working with. Businesses sometimes change names, or an employee makes a mistake during signup, but the AdWords system makes it easy to insert the correct information post-signup. Before you analyze your impression share, clicks, and conversion data, you will want to make sure that your payment information and company details are correctly filled out. This information is not public, but it will affect your billing process.
Log into your Google AdWords account.
Click on the “Billing” tab at the top of the page and the tab will drop down. Locate “Billing Preferences” and click it.
Click “Billing Profile” to view the company information you entered when you first set up your AdWords account.
Click the “Edit” button next to “Business Information.” This will take you to a new page with text fields for you to enter your new or changed company name, address, phone number and other details.
Fill out the text fields with the proper name, address, and phone number for your business, then click “Save.” Reopen your billing preferences page, or refresh, to verify that the details of your business have changed.
Items you will need
Google AdWords account
Form of Payment (e.g., a credit card or PayPal account)
Your business address does not have to match your billing preferences.
If you want to change your company name on the AdWords Certification Program, log into your certification account, click the “Profile” link on the “Company” tab. Edit your information and click “Save” once you have verified the name and address is correct.
You can recover your account credentials at any time by clicking the “Can’t Access Your Account?” button and filling out the necessary forms on the sign-in page of Google AdWords.
