Microsoft Advertising policy site redesign

February 14, 2022

Today, we are excited to announce the rollout of a fully redesigned Microsoft Advertising policy site. Along with the Microsoft Search Network and Audience Network policies, the updated site now contains our Display and Native ad policies, as well as the Display and Native creative specifications, so you can find what you are looking for all in one place.

In addition to updating the layout of the pages, we have added a search functionality, as well as policy topic area navigation that remains static on all of the policy pages to ensure it is easier to find specific policy topics and switch between different policies.

We also made country-specific requirements, including those for newly available markets, more visible on the pages to help reduce confusion about when a specific requirement applies to only one market.

Any policy nuances for Display, Native, Audience ads, or a specific Microsoft Publisher, will be included on the corresponding policy page.
