Get Keyword Search Count in C#

The following example shows how to get a count of the number of search queries that included the specified keywords using the Ad Intelligence GetHistoricalSearchCountByDevice service operation.

This example has been developed and run within the environment described in Getting Started Using C# and Visual Basic with Bing Ads Services.
