Launching Versioning, Content Bidding & More!

Monday, February 27, 2006

We are happy to announce the re-release of API Versioning and the AdWords API Version 3 (V3).

And… since we had an extra two weeks of development time, we were able to include the AdWords Keyword Tool.

So to recap…

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, we have exposed the AdWords Keyword Tool via a new KeywordToolService.

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

Per our earlier stated policy, V2 will be supported for one month from today, at which time it will be turned off. Therefore, please make sure that you upgrade your code to v3 before March 27, 2006.

For technical details about V3, please review the Release Notes section of the Developer’s Guide.
