Scripting in Google AdWords

Last week, I had the good fortune to be invited as a speaker at one of SEMrush’s conferences in Pune.

In case if you do not know SEMrush – do check this tool out, it’s one of the best tools out there when it comes to doing keyword research for both organic and paid. The conferences were being conducted to showcase some of those features. One of the event partners was Pune Digital Marketers, and that’s how I got introduced to the team at SEMrush.

Here are the slides that I used for my talk.

  3. Small scripts available to do mundane tasks
  4. Large set of scripts to solve a particular problem
