Bing Ads

Learn how to setup your Bing Ads account with AnyTrack and leverage server side tracking to scale your campaigns and increase ROAS.

Once you integrate AnyTrack with your Bing Ads account, you will be able to:

  • Track your campaigns in AnyTrack, down to the keyword, ad, ad group, and campaign.
  • Leverage ROAS/ROI optimization method available in Microsoft Ads.
  • Build custom audiences based on your conversion data, revenues, and granular conversion information

Prerequisites:

  1. You need an active property with the AnyTrack Tag set in the head section of your website.
  2. You need a Bing Ads account and a Bing UET Tag.
  3. Once the integration is completed, remove the Bing UET Tag and event snippets from your website in order to prevent duplication data.

Learn how AnyTrack integrates with Microsoft Advertising (formerly known as Bing Ads) and lets you send server-side tracking data from the AnyTrack server directly to the Bing Platform

πŸ‘

Good to know:

Retargeting audiences are being filled from all traffic tracked through your property, not only the traffic originating from your Bing campaigns.

☝️

Prerequisites:

  • You need a Microsoft advertising ad account (FKN Bing Ads).
  • You need the Universal Event Tracking (UET) tag on your site.
  • You need an AnyTrack account with a Personal or Advanced subscription.

In AnyTrack: Connect Bing

  1. Navigate to the Tracking Pixels screen and connect with Bing.
  2. Add the UET Tag ID & Save
  3. Enable Server-Side events
  4. Map the AnyTrack events to the conversion Events you want to see in Bing (useful if you are already running campaigns).
  5. Save

In Bing Ads: Create your conversion goals

This is the part where you need to apply the conversion Event Mapping from the previous steps.

  1. Navigate to the Conversion Tracking tab > Conversion Goals
  2. Create a Conversion Goal
  3. Add a Name, select Event, and click Next
  4. Now follow the steps in the illustration:
  • Custom Event: Copy/Paste the Event Name from AnyTrack to the Action Field in Bing

  • Goal category: Select the appropriate category.

  • Scope: Select the Ad account

  • Revenue Value: Select the option that suits your needs (for Outbound clicks, it's usually 0, but feel free to pick a value).

  • Count: Select count All conversions (recommended for lead, CompleteRegistration, and Purchase since a visitor might trigger several conversions).

  • Conversion Window: Select the conversion window - (we recommend 90 days in order to get as much value in the campaign).

  1. Select the Tag you want to associate with this conversion goal.

Important

You do not need to add the custom event tracking code, as AnyTrack loads it in the background.
