Hi,

 

Is there any Adwords API update text ads? Ive been checking the latest example i.e. https://github.com/googleads/googleads-php-lib/tree/master/examples/AdWords/v201406/BasicOperations but seems no Text Ad updates. Im planning to automate updating text ad description for price. Is this possible?

 

TIA,

 

Mike

Hello Michael G.,

As far as I know it is possible via Ad parameters, where you'll put for example param1 into your decription lines or headline and then you will set this param1 will collect data from somewhere usually some data feed, where you already have the price specified. Then instead of param1:default text, there will be your desired price. But it can only contain numbers and fullstops, So you have to somehow add text with your currency to your ad.

More about Ad Parameters:

Hi Alex,

Thanks for quick reply. Ive check the AdParameters. Yes it updates the price but i do have several products. What will happen on AdParameters each product will have each group. Im planning to have just 1 campaign with 1 group and that group contains all different products. See what i mean?

Thanks,

Mike

ok, it make sense why no text Ad ID, its because each text ads on groups all text id are the same

Quite stuck Smiley Sad..each text ad has a unique id i.e. https://developers.google.com/adwords/api/docs/reference/v201406/AdGroupAdService.TextAd why there is no option to update via id

Guys,

is there an effect when i delete and add text add rather than updating. I guess updating of text ad is not allowed i.e. https://groups.google.com/forum/#!searchin/adwords-api/text$20ad$20update/adwords-api/Ni5lRv1NYAg/EE...

TIA,

Mike

Hi Michael,

The most simple way is with working with labels and AdWords script. Simply use the script to Iterate between ads with a certain label, and pull the values from a spreadsheet which contains the parameters for each label.

Chjeers,

Michael
