Thanks To David Ries For Google AdWords Help

I just wanted to give thanks to my man, David Ries, over at Edit.com for helping me set up Google AdWords. I have never worked with AdWords before and I had to set up conversion tracking information internal to a client site. I wasn't seeing anything useful in the documentation and contacted Dave, who works with Google a lot at Edit.com. He pointed out the fact that if you append this:

?keyword={keyword}&matchtype={ifsearch:search}{ifcontent:content}

... to the destination Urls, it will get Google to automatically fill out the values in the curley brackets. So simple, yet so undocumented. Thanks dude!

Hi,
Gotta Tell you great site! it's full of resources!

Got a question for you however in regards to google adwords,
I haven't seen any coldfusion examples for the Adwords API, and was wondering, if you are going to post it under the snippets section or if you're goingt o post the code for it at all?

The reason why i ask is I'm trying to setu- adwords for a client who runs a site in CF, and was just curious as to how you had it implemented.

@James,

Glad you like the site. To be completely honest, I hardly even remember doing the above post :) It was a one time thing and I haven't touched AdWords since then, so I can't be much help.

Sorry - maybe I can help next time :)
