  1. Indicate exact/phrase match types with " " and [ ] symbols

    It would be much easier to see all keyword match types at a glance if the appropriate exact/phrase match-type symbols were used (" ", [ ]). I realize that match type can be indicated in a different column, but we should be able to see in one glance at a keyword what its match type is.

  2. Time Zone Targeting Option

    Currently, when targeting ads by Hour of Day, adCenter bases delivery times off the user's time zone; whereas, AdWords bases delivery times off the advertiser's set time zone.

    Advertisers would like to have the option of which time zone is being used.

    We have begun exploring providing this functionality. We’re planning to provide an option similar to ad extension scheduling where you can choose your account timezone or the searchers time zone. Please let us know how you plan to use this functionality and how much this impacts your business & search engine marketing today.

  3. Allow the option to link Bing Places accounts with Bing Ads accounts

    Allow the option to link Bing places accounts with Bing Ads accounts so that brands with a large number of business can create localized campaigns without having to manually enter location extensions. Google already allows this option, so if Bing wants to be a competitor, this is a feature that needs to be available.

    We have started to investigate providing this option. Can you share more details about how you’d expect the integration between Bing Places and Bing Ads to work given your experience with other platforms?

  4. Add option to pull conversions in mass

    We use the same 17 conversions over and over for each of our campaigns that we setup and we would love to have the option to pull in all of our standard conversions in one pull (like Google does for Analytics) so that we don't have to enter the same conversions in manually all the time. It would be great if this could happen on the platform (ideal) or the Bing Ads editor or both (preferrable).

    Can you clarify what is meant by pulling in conversions for each campaign? Conversion goals should apply to all campaigns in your account and shouldn’t need to be created per campaign.

  5. Please make "Rotate ads more evenly" the default option instead of "Optimize for clicks" (or allow users to choose which should be default)

    Whenever creating a new ad group (or campaign which requires a default first ad group at the time of creation), the default selection for ad rotation is "Optimize for clicks". It would be great if users could set "Rotate ads more evenly" to be the default selection for every new ad group and campaign.

    For someone who is always testing ad copy (that should b everyone!), this would be a huge difference in campaign creation.

  6. Review Bings Broad Match Algorithm

    Bings broad match algorithm has gone downhill quickly and broad match alone is now unusuable for all my clients, one client that sells polytunnels advertised for:

    pets,fish BMW, Ford, Caravans, wood, hoovers all of the keyword Polytunnel..

    im in the process of requesting recompense, due to this being none fault of my own

    Hello Callum,
    We’d like to help resolve this issue. Can you contact me via email so we can get details of your account and address the problematic matches?

  7. 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.

  8. Don't suggest opportunities that won't meet your own editorial review

    If Bing suggests an opportunity, it should not be something that the Bing editorial team says violates their own policy. That seems very counterintuitive.

  9. 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

  10. 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.

  11. Add Automated Rule for Top of Page at the campaign level

    We have a few clients who want to dominate the search results for all the keywords in a particular campaign. It is inefficient to have to add a rule to every single keyword in the campaign, and to remember to add the rule to any new keywords added later. Give us a way to add Top of Page at the campaign level instead.

    Hi Mel, there is a way to set keyword rules for all keywords from a specific campaign. Have you tried these steps?

    1. Click into the campaign you want to add the keyword rule for so that you are in the ad groups tab reviewing ad groups that only belong to that campaign.
    2. Go to the Keywords tab. Now you are reviewing keywords that only belong to your campaign from Step #1.
    3. Click Automate > Increase to estimated top of page bid when…
    4. Next to “Apply to” make sure that this is selected: “All keywords in this campaign.” This rule will now automatically include all keywords in that campaign, including future keywords that you add later.
    5. Continue defining your rule.

    Let me know if that works for you.

  12. 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.

  13. New keyword suggestions by Bing

    When Bing give new keyword suggestions similar to our keywords and offer to include them in our campaign, and we add them, the CPC prices should not be saved at their recommended CPC bid price, rather the lowest price between our max CPC price enabled on our adgroup settings, or their suggested price
