Paste Keyword Lists Into Facebook Ad Targeting Tool

Now you can paste in your own keyword list within the precise interests field when buying advertising on Facebook.

Now you can paste in your own keyword list within the precise interests field when buying advertising on Facebook.

The consultancy Sociality Squared, formerly known as fbadz.com, pointed this out.

The option to paste in a list of keywords pops up after you click on a tiny plus sign that appears to the right of the precise interest field, within the targeting section of the ad buying tool.

Clicking on that plus sign pops up a window labeled “paste in a list of saved terms,” an example of which appears to the right.

Like it says in the screenshot, you need to separate the keywords by commas.

Additionally, your list of terms can include words that might not yet be among precise interests that you can target on Facebook, as the ads tool will find related keywords.

Quite possibly more keywords could become available for targeting after people get the opportunity to copy and paste their own lists of words into the system, but that remains to be seen.

In the meantime, you can use this new option to copy and paste keywords from your ad copy or from a list you use on another site.
