Update Your Bids from a Google Spreadsheet

Today we have a little script to help adjust bids at a large scale.  This is an example of how you can use the integration with Google Spreadsheets to update some of your bids for keywords.  I have provided a sample spreadsheet which you can make a copy of.

As long as the Adwords Account and the Google Docs account use the same login, it will be able to access any spreadsheet you have.  I suggest opening my sample spreadsheet and then making a copy if it in your account.  You can then replace the URL from the script below with the url of your copy of the spreadsheet.

Link to my sample spreadsheet: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/ccc?key=0Aotb6eheEOpodEhDM2hqQmhfeTdHT3BLMl80aDRxTkE

    .withCondition("Status = ENABLED")

    var kw = kwIter.next();
    var campName = kw.getCampaign().getName();

        kw.setMaxCpc(kw.getMaxCpc() * (1+kwBidHash[kwKey][4]));
