The additions. Here’s what’s Rolling out as part of the June update:

  • Advertiser keyword targeting: Advertisers can now retrieve and manage keyword targeting lists assigned at the advertiser level through the API.
  • Insertion order optimization objective: The new “optimizationObjective” field has been added to the InsertionOrder resource, allowing select advertisers to set optimization goals.
