API Version 3: Support for Content Bidding

Wednesday, February 01, 2006

We are pleased to announce the release of the AdWords API Version 3.

Version 3 includes support for our new Content Bidding functionality. For background information on the Content Bidding feature, please see our earlier post entitled “Exposing Content Bidding via the API in January.”

In addition, the campaignNegativeKeywords field is deprecated. Please use setCampaignNegativeCriteria and getCampaignNegativeCriteria requests in CriterionService instead.

For technical details about v3 and Con
tent Bidding, please review the Release Notes section of the Developer’s Guide.

Per our new versioning system, version 2 of the API will be supported until March 1, 2006, at which time it will be turned off. Therefore, please make sure that you upgrade your code to v3 before then.

And for more information about versioning, please see today’s post entitled “API Versioning is Live.”
