DoubleClickThe January 2012 DoubleClick Search V3 (DS3) update has now been release. One of the many new features coming in the new release is support for Google AdWords Sitelinks!

"For this release, we did make an update to the existing Engine Account Management feature. When you add an AdWords engine account under a DS3 advertiser, DS3 will send a link request directly to your AdWords account; you no longer need to email customer support. You can then sign in to AdWords, accept the link request, and go back to DS3 and save the account," informs DS3 team.

In a future release, the MCC linking will be fully automated.

Google also released the AdWords API documentation for v201109, now available in 9 languages in addition to English.

"In time for your upcoming migration with deadline on February 29, 2012, we have released the latest documentation in Chinese, French, Japanese, German, Korean, Portuguese, Russian, and Spanish. The drop-down menu at the top right corner of the documentation can be used to change the language," google said.
