What is the AdWords API?

The AdWords API allows applications to interact directly with the AdWords platform. You can build applications to more efficiently manage large or complex AdWords accounts and campaigns.

The AdWords API uses SOAP; to help you get started, we offer client libraries in a number of popular flavors, including Java, PHP, Python, .NET, Perl, and Ruby.

To get started:

  1. Sign up for AdWords API access and a test account.
  2. Download the client library of your choice.
  3. Read the Get Started guide and if you have questions, visit the AdWords API forum.

Or, follow along with the accompanying videos.
