Improvements to Bing Ads Editor
The latest version of Bing Ads Editor has undergone various usability improvements, including the ability to locate negative keyword conflicts in order to eliminate duplication.
Better Location Targeting and Ad Scheduling
Knowing how important it is to display the right ad to the right audience at the right time, we made significant improvements to location targeting and ad scheduling.
Managing Multiple Accounts with Large Volumes of Keywords and Ads
Both agencies and search engine marketers rely on our tools to offer efficiencies when managing multiple accounts and large populations of keywords and ads. As a result, we added an Accounts Summary page and Bulk Edit functionality in the web interface—enabling a more efficient workflow.
Usability Improvements in the Web Interface
If you spend a lot of time in the Bing Ads interface, you’ll notice that even a small change can yield a huge impact on productivity. We are always on the lookout for ways to boost efficiency and improve your experience, and below are a few of the requests we received and have addressed on this topic.
Simplifying Campaign Analytics
We recently announced Universal Event Tracking (UET)—replacing our previous Campaign Analytics solution—which provides increased functionality by offering a simple yet powerful tool to define and track goals (performance/conversion) that are important for your business.
More Payment Options
As part of our efforts to increase the set of payment options available, a major credit card provider was recently added.
