Using the Microsoft adCenter API to Automate Reporting in PHP

Microsoft Advertising LogoAfter nearly three months of on & off coding, banging my head against the table and thumbing through the most comprehensive yet incomprehensible documentation I’ve ever seen, I was finally able to automate downloading stats (impressions, clicks, cost) for my coupon site.

For the longest time, the adCenter API was very closed. However, it now seems they’re opening it up, and I quickly was able to get an API account, but wasn’t able to get anything to work. Even adCenter’s most simple script doesn’t work out of the box, and it’s nearly impossible to figure out what has to be done. Hopefully this post will help you.
