V5.1 Ad Group Targeting Sample in PHP


Hello.

Below is an ad group targeting sample written in PHP that uses the V5.1 Campaign Management Web service. We'll include this sample in a future MSDN release.

The Target Class allows you to specify target options for age ranges, days of the week, gender, hour ranges, and location. This specific sample shows how to incrementally bid for specific age ranges. Other target options would use a similar technique.

<?php

// This program requires the following PHP extensions:
//    php_soap.dll
//    php_openssl.dll

// To ensure that a cached WSDL is not being used,
// disable WSDL caching.
ini_set("soap.wsdl_cache_enabled", "0");

try
{

    $adGroupId = 50927722;  //Application-specific value.

    // Use either the sandbox or production URI.
    // This example is for the sandbox URI.
    $URI =
        "
https://sandboxapi.adcenter.microsoft.com/api/advertiser/v5.1/";
    // The following commented-out line contains the production URI.
    //$URI = "

        $URI . "CampaignManagement/CampaignManagementService.svc?wsdl";

    // The user name, password, and developer token are
    // expected to be passed in as command-line
    // arguments.
    // $argv[0] is the PHP file name.
