An Improved AdWords Performance Reporting Script

An Updated AdWords Performance Reporting Script With Phone Impressions and Calls

 

Recently our SEM team wanted to automate some reports that we review weekly for each client's AdWords account. We found a great script at http://www.freeadwordsscripts.com/2013/07/campaign-and-keyword-performance.html, however it was a little dated because there was no data reported for phone impressions or phone calls.

Additionally, the script generated more data than we needed, specifically the tabs for 'Campaign Performance Month to Date' and 'Daily Keyword Performance for the Past 7 Days'.

Our development team is always up for a challenge, so we tasked them with rewriting the script to meet our needs. Since they mostly work in PHP, we figured the Javascript code might help polish up some rusty skills.

The developers did a great job, and we've put this to use now for our client's accounts. We thought it might be nice to share with others who could benefit by saving some time with the automated reporting.

To use the script:

  1. Create a new Google Sheet in any desired location your Google drive. Name the sheet whatever you like (example "Weekly Summary Report- ACCOUNT NAME").
  2. In AdWords, go to Bulk Operations->Scripts.
  3. Click the '+ Script' button.
  4. Enter a name for the Script (example "Weekly Summary- Report Account Name".
  5. Copy the script code below, and paste in the editor area replacing the default 3 lines of code.
  6. Copy the URL of the sheet you created in step 1.
  7. Replace the 'var SPREADSHEET URL' value in the code with the URL of your sheet.
  8. Save the script.
  9. Authorize the script using the 'Authorize now' button.
  10. Click 'Run script now'. You can safely run without previewing.
  11. After several seconds, check your spreadsheet and see the data that was populated by the script. You will see a tab with Campaign Performance last month, Campaign Performance past 7 days, and Keyword Performance e past 7 days.
  12. Use the '+ Create schedule' link to the right of your script to set a weekly run at any desired time. You can also run at other frequencies if you like.
  13. Relax knowing that you will have a useful report to review your account performance automatically generated weekly!
