Salesforce has retired the GoogleAd words integration, but yes you can build your API around it, it would be just like any other integration you can build out.

choose which API you'd like to go with according to your business use case : https://help.salesforce.com/HTViewHelpDoc?id=integrate_what_is_api.htm&language=en_US

 
 Then i'd say build away :)

Google adword integrastion is easily possible by Rest API call instead of SOAP. Google adwords support Auth2.0 authentication which can be ustilized by Salesforce REST API.

A simple authentication starts with:

HttpRequest req = new HttpRequest(); 
    req.setMethod('POST'); 
    req.setEndpoint('https://accounts.google.com/o/oauth2/token'); 
    String messageBody = 'code='+code+'&client_id='+key+'&client_secret='+secret+'&redirect_uri='+redirect_uri+'&grant_type=authorization_code'; 
    req.setHeader('content-length', messageBody.length()); 
    req.setBody(messageBody); 

    Http h = new Http(); 
    HttpResponse res = h.send(req); 
    String resp = res.getBody(); 

    System.debug('--------------------- Response is: ' + resp);

Hi Steve,

I did research and finally success with Rest API.

Thanks Ragula. I just came across a google info, that Google Ads APIs have been moved to Beta & Adwords API (SOAP API) is the recommended one now. So, trying to understand if we can achieve this using Adwords (SOAP) API.
Ragula SivakumarRagula Sivakumar
I guess we can achieve using Soap as well  but Rest would be simple and little bit easy comapre to SOAP.

Thanks Ragula. The links that you shared were really helpful. Would you know if there any links, that explains how to implement the MutateAdGroupCriteriaRequest(Create Keyword) or MutateCampaignsRequest (Create Campaign) using APEX class.

Thanks for your help!
