Hi Mike,

Looks like you are referring to our python example 
add keywords using a batch job, which is definitely recommended. Please 
find the rest of my answers inline:

Im creating adgroups with in total ~100000 keywords and it takes a lot of 
time(sometimes also stucked).
*Could you please provide SOAP XML request and response logs for the job 
that you feel got stuck? If not, if you have the batch job ID, that would 
help me in debugging the issue.*

1. There a efficient way to create this batch jobs?
*The recommended way to create a batch job is explained in our Batch 
Processing Guide 
Although the process is explained in Java, the same guidelines are referred 
to when creating the Python library examples. *

2. There is a limit of operations?
*You may see a RateExceededError 
you perform more than 10,000 operations in a day. Please refer to our Rate 
Sheet <https://developers.google.com/adwords/api/docs/ratesheet> to 
understand what counts as an operation. In this case, the only way to 
increase the operational limit for your account would be to apply for 
a Standard Access 
<https://www.google.com/appserve/fb/forms/standardaccess/>. You can, 
however, also see this error if you send too many requests to the API in a 
short amount of time (few minutes for example). This usually happens if you 
do not group your operations into a batch job 
<https://developers.google.com/adwords/api/docs/guides/batch-jobs> and 
instead prefer to send one operation with each API request. This rate limit 
is in place to stop malicious software from crashing our servers. Rate 
<https://developers.google.com/adwords/api/docs/guides/rate-limits> (not to 
be confused with System Limits 
<https://developers.google.com/adwords/api/docs/appendix/limits>) are 
transient and expire after a period of time.The retryAfterSeconds 
of the RateExceededError would tell you the appropriate time interval after 
which it is safe to retry. Also, there are no penalties associated with 
hitting the rate limit.*

3. How can we improve it(best practices)?
