Improvements to your search term reporting

Managing search terms is a great way to optimize your ad budget. By utilizing insights into how your ads perform when triggered by actual searches, you can be diligent about the keywords you add and those you exclude, so your ads are seen the by the people you want to target.

How will the new improvements help my campaigns?

Bing Ads has expanded search terms management capabilities to include shopping campaigns. You'll now have more visibility and control over search terms than ever before in a single, convenient grid. 
Additionally, we've made the new search terms grid easier to find. You can now click on the new Search terms option when you're under All Campaigns in the Keywords tab. Here you'll find search terms for both search and shopping campaigns.

The grid includes a new Campaign type column, to help you easily distinguish and filter by the type of campaign, and an Added/Excluded column to view search terms that you've already added as keywords or negative keywords.
