How Do You Spot Multiple Keywords Across Ad Groups in Google AdWords?

Say you imported hundreds or thousands of keywords into your Google AdWords account. Chances are if you are working with high volume, you may have duplicated your keywords across ad groups. How do you find these and address them?

There are two ways suggested:

First, you can mouseover the keyword and wait for the little "spy glass" which will show you if another ad shows up for that keyword.

Second, you can perform a search. If the keyword is duplicated, all instances will be returned.

These should come in handy, though I actually prefer the first suggestion that was not suggested by a Google rep. (Speaking of which, this comes from a new-style Google Groups thread and it's almost impossible to distinguish Google employees from regular forum participants. Can Google bring back the blue "G," please, to denote authority?)

Forum discussion continues at Google Groups.
