I just finished Bootcamp 6.4 but had some issues with my account using Bing. I think it's worked out, but can't see my ad or know if my current bid is set up correctly. Kyle had us put a 25-30 cent bid up, but the keyword phrases I chose all were close to a dollar or more. So I raised my bids, now how do I see my ad and know that it's set up correctly?

Thanks,

Todd

If you are just starting on your campaign, you may need to give it a day or two to propagate through Bingads.com.

Otherwise,
The first thing I would do is go to both Bing.com and Yahoo.com and enter the keyword phrase. Enter it both with and without quotes. If the keyword you are targeting won't appear after a couple of attempts you may be targeting too competitive of a keyword.

If that is the case, you may need to add some qualifiers such as "buy" or "best" or something like that to make it less competitive. Just remember if you do add those qualifiers you should somehow tie that in with your landing page so that it stays relevant. You may even want to include that qualifier in the ad itself if that's possible.

Best Regards,
Jim

Hey Todd,

If you could let me know what happened would be great as I'm planning to use my $100 Bing coupon.

Thanks, Jim

Hi Jim, I s/u my account by having my Mom add my Bing info through her computer from USA. Seems to work so far. Then today, I called Bing's Customer Support and they walked me through the process. I inquired about the coupon, and there's a place to apply it to your ads. But I couldn't find mine, so the support staff are going to send me one via email. I would recommend calling them, the staff is very helpful you can get all your questions answered.
Cheers,
Todd
