  1. STOP THE TEXT MESSAGES WITH A CODE TO LOGIN

    I have to receive text messages every time I want to check the balance. It's very annoying. It should be easier and pleasant to check and manage the bing account.

  2. Make error warnings actionable

    Often receive errors messages like "An internal error has occurred" and "Faulted". These error messages give no clue to what the solution is, other than file a ticket and wait, often for days, for help with a solution. This is not helpful when clients are expecting updates within hours, not days. We don't have this problem with the leading search provider.

  4. Service Level called Premium only allows Invoiced Accounts

    IF you pay by credit card and suddenly cannot add keywords or ad copies to your account, it means you have reached the threshold.
    The only thing to do is to ask your AM to increase your service level to Premium. BUT as soon as you lift that threshold, your account will go dark because Premium account must be Invoiced. The work around is to use a FAKE IO using a fake Dealpoint reference. This is just not supported and possibly not super compliant. We need to separate Payment Plan and KW/AdGroup limits when talking Service Level.
    We currently have…

  6. "MAKE BULK CHANGES" option under Keywords tab does not offer to change bids at keyword level

    1. Go to Keywords tab
    2. Select All Keywords
    3. Click on "MAKE BULK CHANGES" and choose "Edit Keyword Bids" option.
    4. Now observe what is in yellow highlighted area above. Change Bids for value is "Ad Group". Why ? Since i was in Keywords tab and wanted to change bids of keyword so "Change Bids For" drop down should have shown me "Keyword".

    confusing for me.

  7. Allow Gaming/Casino Ads in Mexico (Google already allows this)

    Google already allows gaming/casino ads to run in the Mexican market as the laws in Mexico allow online gaming. Kindly review your editorial guildelines.

    Hi Dave, thank you for bringing this to my attention.

    Would you please share the link or phone number that isn’t working? Which market are you in?

    In the meantime, for the US call support center:

    CALL: 1-800-518-5689

    Hours of Operation:

    This information should be located in the footer of Bing Ads when you click the “support” link.

  9. Idea to compete Google way of advertising

    Ok, Sorry... this will sound insane... and against Microsoft's ethics...
    still, it would be fair in my opinion to run ads on unlicensed/pirated versions of Windows OS[as attached]

  10. Show estimated keyword traffic by location

    I would like the ability to view estimated keyword traffic by location. Right now I have some ads that are geo targeted and not performing well, however, I cannot see the estimated keyword traffic for a specific targeted location. By having access to geo-targeted keyword traffic will allow me to choose keywords with higher traffic potential in certain locations.

  11. Sort by Average Position is not correct

    on keywords grid, there is no way to bring up keywords with best average position.
    When sorting by Average position, it shows first either keywords with worst position (big number), or keywords which never showed (0 position).
    The way I worked around it is to filter out AvgPos=0 and then use sort to find best positions.

  13. Start taking money when customers are ready to give you.

    I had been struggling to assign credit card as a payment method for last 3 months. So, I started using ACH payments. First payment transfer took 36 hours to transfer. Second payment transfer I am still waiting...now for over a week.In both the cases, from my account the amount was deducted within 12 hours. When I talk to customer service, every time I get different response from 24 hours for posting the transfer to 14 days.
    Also, taking echeck on websites is pretty common these days...this simple addition will help Bing a lot.
    Please help me asap....

  15. Embed activation codes within email URLs

    When you run forget password, or when you get your account activated, the user has to manually input the activation code into the text box. Yes this can be done via copy + paste but it is one less friction point to simply click the link with the activation code and have it already filled in.

  16. Simplify Campaign setup process

    There are too many unnecessary fields in BingAds, need to simplify - Timezone, Budget daily vs monthly (Google only has Budget per day), you need to set bids again after setting bids on a per keyword basis?

  17. Select both Search and Display for my campaigns

    We need to enable that in BingAds. Also looking at Display performance in Google, I got many impressions and many clicks from it.

  18. "Overall" totals across ad groups should be weighted averages

    When viewing CTR% and other data across multiple ad groups, the averages calculated are done so on a simple basis, when they should instead be weighted averages. Currently, if Ad Group #1 has 200 clicks, and Ad Group #2 has 40 clicks, the "Overall" CTR% reported for all groups is just the average of the two group CTR's. It SHOULD be the weighted average, with the clicks per ad group determining the weight of each in the Overall calculation.
