    Adwords Campaign Runtime Automation

    Does Adwords have a feature that allows you to start/stop the campaign automatically rather than pausing it manually? I've advertised in other places which allowed me to set the times my campaigns ran on an hourly basis. I see daily depressions in my customer base and have to shut down my Adwords during certain hours or I'm just thowing away my money. I'm sure other advetisers feel this way so why don't they automate this feature? I've emailed them to suggest this and am waiting for their reply.

    No, they offer no option for that.

    You can probably write yourself a script in almost any language to POST the data to AdWords while sending some cookies to show you're logged in, to activate/pause your campaigns. Put the program on cron or another scheduler and you're set...
