With the release of the API I figured we'd see an onslought of 3rd-party utilities etc. that make using and managing your adwords account easier. But I can't seem to find too many of them. Does anyone know of a list or where I can find them? I'm trying to see what's available before we start developing our own ...

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.

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.

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)
AtlasOnePoint
Did-It
KeywordMax
The Search Works (UK-based, Europe focused)
Referencement.com (France)
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)

Client Software:
-BidBuddy
-BidRank
-Dynamic Keyword Bid Maximizer
-PPC BidTracker
-PPC Pro

ASP Based:
-AtlasOnePoint
-Search Optimizer
-Maestro
-Keyword Max
-Epic Sky

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 ... :-)

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 ...
