    Thank you for this feedback. I’ll be reaching out to you to clarify that this is for the transfer of prepay balances across accounts. Thanks!

  2. Bing Ads Editor

    Helpful feedback: The newest version of Bing Ads Editor takes forevvveerrr to load and display my campaign. Very “clunky” feeling to it. Previous versions (running on my same
    Windows 10 PC) used to load and allow me to display my campaigns very quickly. But this new-fangled version (new design within the last month?) requires a lot more click and “struggle” to actually load my campaigns to the point where I can start working.

    I know that’s hard to describe, probably too vague. But from a “ user experience “ point of view, I thought I should mention it to your…

    Hi Jenna,

    We apologize for the issue you are seeing. Can you send below listed details at bingads-feedback@microsoft.com so that we can further investigate?

    1. What is the version of Bing Ads Editor (BAE) you are using today where you are seeing latency?
    2. What is the pervious version of BAE which did not have latency issues?
    3. When you say BAE takes a long time to load, I am assuming that that starting up BAE for the first time, are you seeing latency when performing other operations as well?

    Thanks for your help.

  3. Recommendations: Significant improvements needed to this tab

    This portion of the Microsoft Ads tool is in urgent and dire need of overhaul to make it functional and useful to people who get more than 20 recommendations.

    At present, the campaign recommendations screen is actually quite clunky to deal with, as it:


    • Will not keep your number of rows displayed consistent after an activity (i.e. if you select 100, reject some suggestions, it will refresh but go back to 20 rows on a page regardless of browser;

    • It always returns to the first page of the table, rather than the page you were on; and

    • Whilst downloading of…

    Thanks a lot for your feedback, which is very helpful! I’d like to further clarify the 3 needs you have raised.

    1) Understood your pain points and will work with the team for a solution and reply back here
    2) For bulk upload, do you mean uploading the edited recommendation in the spreadsheet to the account through “Import campaigns” in Web UI or editor? Currently it’s doable. Also, the rejection and dismissal reason feedback can be provided once you click “Stop showing this type of recommendation” or dismiss individual recommendation in the detail page.
    3) To make the scroll bar in the table only, do you want the top of the page (like the description and aggregated estimated KPI) always be available for reference when just scrolling the table?

  4. Filter keyword recommendations

    The new recommendations feature is a huge step backwards.
    Why can't I filter the keywords? I don't have time to go through 400+ keywords one by one to choose if they're relevant to my business.
    By using a filter, I can easily choose the recommended keywords to apply and which ones to dismiss.

    I no longer use this feature because of the restrictions and time taken to administer it.

    All recommendations are dismissed, unfortunately.

  5. outlook.live.com trash traffic

    Dear Sirs, Last month we got a lot off trash traffic from outlook.live.com on all our accounts.
    And We can't exclude this website because your system shows error message "You can’t add Yahoo! or Microsoft sites (such as www.msn.com) to your excluded websites list."
    What should we do to stop clicks from outlook.live.com?

    We will need more information about your account to understand the problem here. Can you contact Bing Ads support and reference this request as part of your escalation?

  6. Put 3rd party Conversion Tracking directly in Bing Dashboard

    I believe this is why false URL mismatch Ads get flagged. We should be able to put the 3rd tracking Pixil in our Dashboard the bots will know where the extra String comes from.

  8. Editor and Downloaded Files from Editor should reflect the same information

    The editor states if an ad is rejected because of an inaccessible website. When downloaded, the editorial rejection simply reads that the ad or keyword or website violates Bing Ads editorial policies.

    The editor as well as the downloaded export (copy to csv) file should reflect the same messages.

    Hi Davide,

    It appears that “Pasting” after “Copy Shell” is not working on the left Tree View. We will look into this. However, if you try to Paste on the Grid, it should work. Please email me at princeba at microsoft.com if you have any other questions.

    Thanks!

  10. Keyword Planner Search Volume

    Dear Support Team!

    Look. Keyword Planer does not show search volume for keywords in smaller, English speaking countries where Bing/Yahoo has coverage. BIG MISTAKE!! Because if you target let's say 10 of this smaller countries as Barbados, New Zealand, The Bahamas, ****** Islands, Jamaica, Cayman Islands...well still in certain niches good volume of traffic comes from these countries. Not just from the big ones!!

    Make it available as Google does!!! Because let's say I target Diabetes treatment. All right the main target countries are Canada and the US.

    But for certain keywords there is a search volume of 150-300 from…

  11. add the option to choose how much to bid on every single keyword from the beginning of campaign creation

    the new Bing ads platform lack the feature of bidding manually on every single keyword I add when creating a campaign. The option was there was the old platform but when the platform update was finished the option disappear and I have to go to bulk edit to bid manually on the keywords which is wasting a bit of time

    Thanks for your feedback. Could you share more on the manual bid for each keyword to help us better understand? How do you determine the individual bid? Why is it more efficient for you to set up individual bid in the creation instead of edit after creation?

  12. Competitor sheet

    You should let customer choose competitors in competitors sheet from bing ads. Otherwise you should let customer choose the operating market sector(s) so algorithm works better

  13. Click and drag ad groups into different campaign.

    I have an existing Bing account where some campaigns and ad groups already exist, top performing, but I'd now like to import my other google adgroups into existing campaign groups in Bing. Instead it creates a new campaign so I effectively have 2 campaigns for the same product category. Google Adwords Editor lets you click and drag. Much easier

    Hi,
    When importing, if you change the campaign name in the source google file to the existing campaign (in bing ads account) where you want to import the ad groups then the ad groups will be added to the existing campaign, BAE will not create a new campaign.

    You can copy and paste ad groups from one campaign to another within the same account or across different account in our latest version of Bing Ads Editor (BAE) (version 11) by either hitting Ctrl+C/Ctrl+V or by right clicking the item and selecting copy/paste from the context menu. We don’t have drag drop yet, but will be supporting that soon.

    Hope this helps.

    Thanks

  14. Have the possibility of having Retargeting ONLY campaings

    Have the possibility of having Retargeting ONLY campaings

    The fact that audiences are missing with normal campaigns if we create a re-marketing campaign is not ideal, and therefore we cannot target the right audience.

  15. Opportunities

    Currently, when new keywords plus bid modifiers are added it causes the account to go into a hold while it gets verified. The problem here is that this is also happening when customers decides to apply some of the opportunities being offered inside of the bing ads UI tabs labeled “opportunities”. It makes zero sense why we would be provided a suggestion from directly inside of bing ads only to be put on hold for an editorial review. If you guys aren’t already clear on whether or not you will allow a certain keywords or anything else being offered inside…

    Thanks for the feedback and sorry for the inconvenience caused. We take this comment seriously as system by design should not suggest editorial non-compliant keywords to users. To help us further investigate the issue, could you pls help provide your account XID, along with the keyword suggestions getting rejected? We will get back to you soon once we have an investigation result and solution

  16. Changes in Editor

    When making changes to any entity in Bing Ads Editor, the entire line is in bold before posting changes. For example, if you make a change to the URL, the campaign, ad group, match type etc. gets highlighted. I would like the option to only have the changes being made in bold before posting.

  17. Bulk Uploading

    Current Bing Ads editor doesn't support >10,000 changes/additions at a time.
    have been facing this problem for few of the large accounts, I think this limit should not be lesser than 50,000 (unlimited changes would be great)

    Best,
    Ahmad

  19. Keyword Category

    create category names for subsets of keywords, so that we can create lower or higher bids on particular groups of keywords based on the category the user asigns.

  20. Show audience overlap between 2-3 select audiences

    Facebook and Google both show overlap of audience, to give an advertiser an idea of degree of incrementality of one audience vs. others.
