Google just announced the release of the Google Affiliate Network API. This allows publishers and advertisers to automate various tasks related to the Google Affiliate Network.

Publishers can use it to look up advertiser data or their own info. Advertisers can use it to look at publisher data or their own info. Developers can integrate data from events that occur in the Network into their own sites and internal systems.

"Publishers can now use the Google Affiliate Network API to more easily access data that advertisers have chosen to share with them (such as payout rank and advertiser category)," says product manager Ali Pasha. "Previously, publishers had to manually access this shared data through the Google Affiliate Network interface. Advertisers can also access their own information through the API."

Google says the API allows access to all significant event-level data for transactions and actions.
