Bing Ads Editor 10.9: Cleaning house and getting faster
September 30, 2015
Bing Ads Editor has always been about enabling you to get things done efficiently. With that in mind, we are pleased to announce the release of version 10.9, which runs faster, while at the same time, consumes significantly less system resources.
For this latest release, our team worked hard on making Bing Ads Editor much faster and improved upon a number of common operations. Compared to previous versions of Editor, v10.9 offers the following improvements:
- Displaying large accounts (example: 2 million keywords, 1million Ads) is more than 2x faster
- Downloading large accounts (example: 2 million keywords, 1million Ads) is 30% faster
- Switching between built-in views is 2x faster
- Finding and replacing Ads is up to 4x faster
- Switching between tabs is smoother
Not only is Bing Ads Editor v10.9 faster, we have also reduced its memory consumption by 70% in comparison to the previous version. Thanks to this memory savings, you can run even more programs in parallel while working with Bing Ads Editor.
Starting with this version, we will no longer support WAP (Wireless Application Protocol) ads. You can learn more about the changes to WAP mobile ads in this blog post.
With the release of Bing Shopping Campaign, we have stopped supporting product ads, product ad extensions, and product targets in Bing Ads Editor. Bing Shopping Campaign is not yet supported in Bing Ads Editor, but you can use Web UI/API to manage your Bing Shopping Campaigns. To learn more about Bing Shopping Campaigns, please see our launch announcement.
Note: If you need to use Product Ads, please install an older version of BAE (v10.8) from here.
This release is being rolled out to ensure an optimal user experience. You’ll be prompted to upgrade to 10.9 when you launch Editor over the next few weeks, or can download it right away from the Bing Ads Editor download page.
