Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 220.127.116.11
once again I'm working on a 'little' application using the Adwords API. It's an Adwords integration of a webshop where prices change quite frequently. I want the ads to reflect these changes and so I check the database for price changes every hour and create a new ad and remove the old one. Quite often, the price changes back a day or two later to what it was before. I can reuse the old ad with its already gained history and don't have to waste quota units - that's great.
Now the question is if I should only change the status of my ads to 'Paused' or 'Disabled' when they loose their validity. Is there any difference between status 'Disabled' and 'Paused' besides that paused ads are still visible in the account interface while disabled ads aren't?
So, disabled = paused + not visible in account.

I mailed my question to Adwords API Support and just got the answer. Basically the support guy says that I'm right 'that that's the only discernible difference.'
Darn, you beat me to the punch in answering your own question, Sujan. ;)
You (and the support guy) are correct.
