Baidu Search Marketing Service

This gem is an easy-to-use, thin wrapper around the Baidu Search Marketing Service SOAP API v3.

This gem does not support the v4 JSON API or the BulkJobService.

Installation

gem install baidu-sms

Usage

Each service is initialized with a hash with three symbol keys:

credentials = {
  username: 'username',
  password: 'password',
  token: 'apitoken'
}

There are three implemented services: ReportService, AdgroupService, and KeywordService.

service = BaiduSMS::ReportService.new(credentials)
service = BaiduSMS::AdgroupService.new(credentials)
service = BaiduSMS::KeywordService.new(credentials)

Using the ReportService

When you create a report, you'll get an ID:

params = {
  performanceData: %w[cost cpc click impression ctr cpm conversion],
  startDate: Date.today - 1,
  endDate: Date.today - 1,
  levelOfDetails: BaiduSMS::LevelOfDetails::ACCOUNT
}

id = service.create_report(BaiduSMS::Reports::ACCOUNTS, params)

You can reference report type and level of detail by module constant or by name:

BaiduSMS::Reports.from_name('accounts')
# equals 
BaiduSMS::Reports::ACCOUNTS

# and

BaiduSMS::LevelOfDetails::ACCOUNT
# equals
BaiduSMS::LevelOfDetails.from_name('account')

You need to poll to discover if the report is ready yet:

if service.report_ready?(id)

Once the report is ready, you can get the URL where the report can be downloaded from:

service.report_url(id) if service.report_ready?(id)

You can download the report from this URL.

Using the other services

These services are synchronous; calling them will return results without having to poll. Look at the methods in these classes to see the return types and how to call them.

Tests

The services have tests - to run them, you need to create a file called credentials.yml at the root of the repository, with this format in YAML:

:username: username
:password: password
:token: apitoken

You can then run the tests by running rspec.
