“Is there a good book out there that teaches how to use and create Adwords Scripts?”
Short Answer: No.
Believe me. I’ve spent many unbillable hours searching for a book to finally get started using Adwords Scripts. If found none. Zero.
Also, there are a lot of books on Adwords in general, however, none of them addresses Adwords Scripts in detail.
So, no book.
This is actually the reason I decided to write one myself (signup for my newsletter below for updates on the progress).
This does not mean you won’t be able to learn to use/edit/write Adwords Scripts today though!
Here are my tips on getting started today. With or without books.
2. Start fooling around with some basic Adwords Script examples
Learn about the concept of Iterators and Selectors. Start iterating over your own campaigns/ad groups and keywords. Report on some statistics. Log the results of your script and look at the results of what you are doing in Preview mode. Copy-paste some of the Google code samples and edit parts of the code. If you feel confident find some more prebuilt scripts to start screwing around with. Have some fun!
