There are actually quite a few including a program created by Yahoo :o)
I don't have my list in front of me but there are at least 8 mainstream programs currently available.
Could you post the list?
Bidrank just released one; unfortunately they hugely increased their pricing at the same time, so I haven't actually seen or used it. I think you can download a demo tho.

Maybe when you're not that busy...... Pretty please!
A lot of companies *should* be using the API, but it's hard to know who's actually using it. Here's a partial list of who one would think is using it:
Efficient Frontier (my firm)
The Search Works (UK-based, Europe focused)
Performics (part of Doubleclick)
If a vendor is not using the API then they're not going to be able to do a good job efficiently manage campaigns with lots of keywords.
Sorry it took so long. Here is a list of those using both Y!S and AW API's (figured list would be better to be complete). Enjoy :o)
-Dynamic Keyword Bid Maximizer
There are many others, however it should be pointed out the neatest programs are those not available to the public! ;-)
I've also been looking for client software to manage Adwords campaigns and adgroups.
I'm looking for software that you can actually create all your campaigns, adgroups, and ads (just the way you do in the online interface) and then upload all your changes to the adwords server... ;-)
Does anyone know of software like this that exists?
I would be interested, too!
Please post all tools you know - Software, ASP Tools and - of course - those not available to the public ... :-)
... Ok, I'll start and post some I've come across:
AWUploader (still in beta)
|AWUploader (still in beta) |
Almost there :o)
On a related topic, do you advertisers and 3rd parties think there should be API access fees? If so, what should they be?
You mean Google charging for use of the API?
Do any of the ones posted enable remote access to the adwords diagnotic tool?
Yes, Google API access fees.
There shouldn't be any access fees for something that helps advertisers use Google's service more effectively and spend more money with Google ...
