BLOG-new-features-bingExpanded Text Ads
Bing Ads will soon support the Expanded Text Ads as now available in Google AdWords accounts. This new ad format allows PPC advertising customers to provide more detailed information to prospective customers, translating into more clicks, higher click-through rates and more traffic to your website.

Expanded text ads allow for better visibility on the search result pages and give you more control over your ads and allow you to create more compelling calls to action. This new ad format is always mobile optimized, and works seamlessly on mobile, desktop and tablet.

Expanded Text Ads will allow for a 60 character headline (two 30-character ad titles separated by a hyphen), 80 characters of ad text, and a Display URL that is automatically-generated from the Final URL and customizable URL path.

Shared Budgets
Bing Ads will soon introduce Shared Budgets as a way to more effectively manage your overall daily budget across campaigns. A Shared Budget will automatically distribute a single daily budget across all campaigns or selected campaigns within your account.

Shared Budgets will be available for all Bing Ads applications, including the Web User Interface (in the Shared Library), API, Editor, and mobile apps. Using a single Shared Budget will help you optimize under-utilized spend from one or more campaigns by automatically redistributing it across other campaigns that are performing well. Additionally, it will help minimize the amount of time you’ll need to spend calculating how to allocate a set budget among a large number of campaigns.

Segmentation
The ability to segment your performance data is now available in Bing Ads. Now you no longer need to run a report to see how your campaign is performing in various venues. You can now segment campaigns, ad groups, ads, keywords, and even ad extensions into rows based on Time (Day, Month, Quarter, Year or Day of the Week), Network, Device, or Top vs. Other. You can download the data directly from the table into a .csv or Excel report to share with clients or colleagues.

Segmenting your data can give you valuable information regarding how your campaigns perform at certain times, on particular devices, or on particular networks, helping you make well informed adjustments to ad schedules, device targeting, and keyword bids.
