Today we announced the release of the AdWords API version 13. V13
introduces several changes to the AdWords API; we've highlighted the
main points below. For a complete list of v13 changes, please see our
release notes (

V13 Highlights

* New geotargeting options: Target multiple geographic levels
(countries, regions, metro areas, and cities) within a single
campaign, target specific regions of multiple countries in a single
campaign, and setup negative targeting for specific regions (for
example, target the United States with the exception of Alaska).
* New reports: Generate Search Query Performance and Geographic
Performance reports using ReportService and DefinedReportJob.
* Mobile image ads: Use the new MobileImageAd ad type to create
graphical advertisements for the mobile content network.
* Suggested campaign budgets: Retrieve budget suggestions for your
campaigns with getRecommendedBudgetList.
* Active campaigns and ad groups: Want to retrieve only your
active campaigns and ad groups? Now you can, using
getActiveAdWordsCampaigns and getActiveAdGroups.
* Quality-based bid and Quality Score support: We've added two new
Keyword fields:
o firstPageCpc (first page bid estimate)
o qualityScore (Quality Score of the keyword)
