Scheduled Maintenance for Microsoft adCenter API and News About Quality Score Coming Soon

Today there were a couple of posts that went up on the adCenter Blog that I think are worth cross-posting here:

1.) Microsoft Advertising adCenter will be undergoing scheduled maintenance from 6:00 A.M. to 6:00 P.M. Pacific Time on Saturday, March 12. 

Here’s what you need to know…

  • During this time, your ads will continue to serve, but you will be unable to make campaign updates via the UI, Desktop or API during the maintenance window.
  • if you’re working on offline updates via the Desktop, you may upload them once the maintenance is complete.
  • All reporting is expected to be up to date by March 13.
  • We recommend that you rerun all your adCenter reports that include the downtime period, from 6:00 A.M. to 6:00 P.M. March 12. 

If you have any questions, leave a comment below.

2.) Today at SMX West, Rathna Sharad announced that adCenter will soon incorporate Quality Scores to help you refine and imrpove your PPC campaigns' effectiveness... for more detailed information and to ask questions about it in the comments section, visit Paul Corkery's post on the adCenter Blog.

    I haven't been able to use the API as an Excel Ad-in for about 2 weeks now. The issue is posted by 3 other people on this website, at…/68443.aspx.

    Do you know when it will come back, or are just a few unlucky users? I'm also considering using the programmable API (…/aa983013.aspx ). Does MSFT offer solutions that can be implemented in Perl? How much does it cost?

    Thanks a lot for your help.
