Subscribe to our RSS feed to get blog posts via email

(If you want to continue getting email updates about our blog posts, read on. If you don't want email updates from this blog, you can skip this post.)

For some products, the Google Ads Developer team has used Google groups as a way to allow API users to subscribe and get new relevant blog posts delivered to their email address. Starting now, the way you can get email updates about blog posts is changing. We will no longer send an email to the Google group for each new blog post. We will continue to use the Google groups for other important updates, however.

For users who still want email updates, we've introduced new FeedBurner links on the right-hand panel of our blog homepage. You can subscribe to the RSS feed by clicking on the link for the product you're interested in, or subscribe by email by clicking on the [+] link to the right of the product name.

If you use any of the APIs that we discuss on this blog, make sure you subscribe to the feed to keep up with the latest news and updates:

Support for v201809 reports in Google Ads Scripts

We have added support for AdWords API v201809 reports in Google Ads Scripts. The key changes in this release include:
  • The DESTINATION_URL_REPORT has been removed. Use the FINAL_URL_REPORT instead.
  • New conversion fields have been added to multiple reports:
    • ConversionAttributionEventType (CAMPAIGN_PERFORMANCE_REPORT only)
    • ConversionAdjustment
    • ConversionAdjustmentLagBucket
Read the AdWords API release notes for complete details, including additional features not listed here.

If you use API versioning in your reports, you need to modify your code to use v201809:

var report = AdsApp.report(query, {
apiVersion: 'v201809'
});
If you don't use API versioning, no code changes are required. We are updating the default reporting version to v201806 along with this change, and your reports will upgrade automatically.

If you have any questions about these changes or Google Ads scripts in general, you can post them on our developer forum.
