Today, we're thrilled to announce the updated AdSense APIs home page, the release of the AdSense Management API, and the renaming of the existing API.

We've regularly heard that publishers want to obtain their AdSense performance reports programmatically. While this was already possible for our host partners, other AdSense publishers could only monitor their earnings through their AdSense accounts. So, we're launching a new RESTful API based on the latest Google technology that will be available to all AdSense publishers. Among its capabilities are the ability to list the products you're using, and run reports on your ad units and channels. Keep an eye on this space, as we'll be expanding the new API's functionality over the coming months.

We're also renaming the existing API to AdSense Host API, to make it clear that it's only targeted at our host partners. For existing AdSense host partners using the Host API, nothing changes except the name - your code remains the same and no action is required on your part.

Be sure to check back with this blog over the next few days, as we'll be posting some introductory content on using the new AdSense Management API.

Happy coding!
