View and sort your campaigns by budget On the Campaigns tab of the Campaigns page you can now sort and filter your campaigns by budget, similar to what you were able to do with most of the other columns of that tab, such as clicks and impressions. We've also added a total to the top of several of the columns on the various tabs of the campaigns page. Whenever you have more than 10 rows, we'll summarize the information and provide a total. For example, if you have more than 10 campaigns, we'll provide an overall total budget for all of your campaigns. This total will be displayed in the budget column, as the first row of the campaigns tab.

Add search terms to your keyword list Find out how customers are searching for your ads and use that information to improve campaign performance. Use the new search terms option on the keywords tab to see a list of search terms that caused your ad to be triggered. Select the keywords that are relevant to your campaign, and add them to your keyword list. Equally important, select the ones that aren't relevant, and add them to your negative keyword list, so they won't trigger your ad. For more information, see Add search terms as keywords.

Expanded search terms report The search terms report has been updated to capture all search terms, including those with zero clicks. Knowing which search terms result in zero clicks can inform you about keywords to add to your negative keywords list, which can in turn increase your overall CTR and quality score.

Reporting clarity We made several updates around the reports page to help you understand report terms and functions. The 15 report fields that users found most confusing now have inline help popups, telling you what the report is and why it's important. We also renamed several reports based on your feedback, and added nearly 50 terms to our reports glossary. Providing clarity around Bing Ads reports is an ongoing effort, so please keep your feedback coming!

Edit your ad extensions all at once with Bing Ads Editor If you need to edit ad extensions (phone numbers, addresses, websites) and the extension is associated with hundreds of campaigns, there are hundreds of changes to make. With Bing Ads Editor, you can now use a spreadsheet to edit the details all at once, rather than line-by-line.

Streamlined and updated Campaigns page You've asked for a "cleaner" campaigns page and those changes have begun. You'll see that several of the options on each of the tabs have been consolidated under a single Edit button. Now you don't have to wade through a sea of different buttons to make changes. Just select the rows you want to work with and click Edit. You can then pause and enable each row or make bulk updates to multiple items.

We've also removed the cryptic filter and columns icons and replaced them with, suprisingly enough, the words Filters and Columns.

Finally, you'll also see that the Status column has been replaced by a new icon column on the far left of each tab. These icons give you a easy-to-scan indication of the status of each row: Enabled or Paused ("Enabled" is the new term for what used to be "Active").

Mobile sitelinks now available Following the success of sitelink extensions on PCs, we have been working on expanding this feature to mobile. We have enabled over 60% of the Yahoo Bing Network mobile traffic to run Sitelinks in the US. In addition to the US, we are also actively rolling out to several other markets, including the United Kingdom, France, and others. Take a look at this blog for more information on mobile sitelinks.

Customers with existing lastchriftverfahren accounts will be automatically transitioned to SEPA direct debit.
