Automated Extensions, powered by AI, help improve your ad’s visibility and performance

We know advertisers are always looking for ways to save time and improve the performance of their campaigns. That is why Bing is using AI to build systems that can perceive, learn, find patterns and help make predictions that improve ad performance. By harnessing the power of AI and applying machine learning, we are delivering intelligent and personalized audience targeting, campaign optimization tools, and more customized ad experiences such as Dynamic Search Ads, In-Market Audiences, and Auto-Bidding.

And now we are thrilled to add another AI-powered solution to the Bing Ads platform. Formerly known as Annotations, Automated Extensions will save you time by reducing operational tasks as well as help alleviate ad testing guesswork. As an intelligent ad solution, AI helps Automated Extensions analyze huge amounts of data and find more effective ways to supplement your text ads with extensions for improved visibility and increased performance, with no action required from you.

How Automated Extensions work

Engaging your customer effectively requires having the right extensions in place which can cause extensive amounts of work. This is where Automated Extensions can help. Bing collects and extracts relevant and useful content to ensure the right extensions appear at the right time. This data can come from the content on your website, your ad descriptions, a user’s Bing query, Bing Shopping feeds, and 3rd party sources like Twitter or consumer reviews. The primary objective is to supplement the title, ad description, and display URL that’s already created by the advertiser to provide unique information and create additional value for improved ad performance.

As part of this update, we are thrilled to announce that we are adding reporting and opt-out in the UI for the 9 Automated extensions currently available.
