AdWords API

TrafficEstimatorService (v201402)

Use this service to request traffic estimates for proposed or existing campaigns, ad groups, and keywords.

To simply retrieve estimates for a list of proposed keywords, create a campaign estimate request and a child ad group estimate request with null IDs, and then set the keywordEstimateRequests to contain the keywords.

You can refine the traffic estimates by setting campaign targeting options in the request. If an ad group ID is provided, all creatives from that ad group will be loaded and used to improve estimates.

The maximum number of keyword estimate requests across all campaign estimate requests and ad group estimate requests is 2500.

The maximum number of adgroup estimate requests across all campaign estimate requests is 50.

Note that the API returns intervals whereas the Traffic Estimator UI displays averages. Estimates are account specific since they are based on creatives already in the account. When comparing numbers, use the same account for the API and UI.

This is disabled for AdX.
