Creating a Hotel Ad Group

Stay organized with collections Save and categorize content based on your preferences.

In order to serve ads for your Hotel campaign, you must create an AdGroup with at least one ad in the ad group. As shown later, a Hotel campaign supports only an ad group of the HOTEL_ADS type, which you can set in the type field. The code example also sets a Percent CPC bid since the campaign's bidding strategy is PercentCpc.

Java

private String addHotelAdGroup(
    GoogleAdsClient googleAdsClient, long customerId, String campaignResourceName) {
  // Creates an ad group.
  AdGroup adGroup =
      AdGroup.newBuilder()
          .setName("Earth to Mars Cruises #" + getPrintableDateTime())
          .setCampaign(campaignResourceName)
          // Sets the ad group type to HOTEL_ADS. This cannot be set to other types.
          .setType(AdGroupType.HOTEL_ADS)
          .setCpcBidMicros(1_000_000L)
          .setStatus(AdGroupStatus.ENABLED)
          .build();

  // Creates an ad group operation.
  AdGroupOperation operation = AdGroupOperation.newBuilder().setCreate(adGroup).build();

  // Issues a mutate request to add an ad group.
  try (AdGroupServiceClient adGroupServiceClient =
      googleAdsClient.getLatestVersion().createAdGroupServiceClient()) {
    MutateAdGroupResult mutateAdGroupResult =
        adGroupServiceClient
            .mutateAdGroups(Long.toString(customerId), Collections.singletonList(operation))
            .getResults(0);
    System.out.printf(
        "Added a hotel ad group with resource name: '%s'%n",
        mutateAdGroupResult.getResourceName());
    return mutateAdGroupResult.getResourceName();
  }
}
