    What keyword tool are you using and are you checking the strength of the cometition for those keywords? I would highly recommend using Longtail Pro to uncover keywords that are easy to rank for...hope this helps!

  • Try to Use Broad Keywords for testing purpose, still if you not received any clicks or impressions then contact the Bing support team.

    Also, use the Bing Ads Intelligence tool... It will give you keywords searched for in Bing along with volume, impressions, clicks etc.

    Its free so just do a Google search for it and you'll find it.

    It will give you a lot of insight for KWs on Bing.

    It may take a while for you to start seeing the clicks show up on your stats. You didn't mention this but another thing that may be happening is your ad and site are under review and this may take a day or two.

    If you just started your campaign and it has been approved, give it an hour or two.

    thanks for all the replies guys.....I never used a keytool! all i did was using most popular words to that niche....most hits etc.

    the campain have been running for 2 days now. No clicks or anything at all.

    I guess I will redo the ad and use a tool!

    Not everytime ... depends on couple of things ... like search volume, ad review, bid rate, demographics, etc.,
    One of my campaign exhausted the daily budget in couple of hrs & other one did not get even a single click.
    Just contact Bing Support .. they can quickly check out as well

      This shows in your dashboard. Hover over a keyword and a window will appear with the status of your ad. It will tell if your ad is showing for that keyword or not. If not it will tell you why.

    It's all about testing.. Maybe you need to up your bid just a little for your chosen keywords.

    One if the most "unknown" secret in using Bing Ads is

    Set group of keywords for every ads.

    I mean ONE AD for a specific group of keywords.

    NOT all the keywords in one basket with a lot of ads which basically are different.

    So you can increase the CTR

      That is a great tip and for a PPC marketer [with larger daily budgets of course] can save you thousands in advertising costs.

      ** thumbs up**

    I made my first sale online back in 2006 using Bing. Spent like $5 back then and the sale was for $500. However it only put $50 in my pocket.

    Back then Bing was known as Microsoft Ads Center.

    I don't use Bing too much nowadays but it still is a good source for sales.

    I would advise you to find a good course that will teach you how to advertise on Google and Bing PPC.

    In 2006 I purchased an eBook for $97 by a guy named Perry Marshall.

    This course taught me a lot in regards to 'How to Write Effective Ads'.

    It also taught me a lot in regards to impressions, cost per click, geo targeting and even CTR.

    Much of that stuff I learned I still apply on FREE Traffic strategies like you tube, blogging and even email marketing (perking people's interest and getting them to open, read emails and even clicks based on Ad Copy.

    For my first 2 years on Google Adwords I spent $11,000 and actually made it back as a newbie.

    However...back then we were allowed to direct link to lead capture pages in order to sell affiliate products.

    Then Google changed their rules and didn't want marketers sending traffic to lead capture pages anymore.

    Many advertisers got slapped but luckily for me I pulled my ads and kept my account up to this day.

    I don't ever use Adwords for direct linking but still use them for other stuff.

    Anyway the whole reason I am telling you this is I have experience in paid advertising.

    And you (or anyone needing Bing PPC ) should really start looking for a good course before encountering paying for traffic.

    So many new marketers have already lost their shirts with paid ads and are now desperately trying to build off of FREE Traffic.

    so really good info in here ...wow.

    I would recommend doing more keyword reserach, there is a good warrior in here that does it.

    Also raise your daily budget, their bing algorith is set to take prefernce to larger daily budget clients from what I hear.

    BING on some niches do not get enough traffic, so if this is the case you might be better off to do FB marketing and get your targeting really tight, right down to WHAT COLOR underpants they wear on THURSDAY....lol.....i think u get my drift.

    Fb fills a hole where BING cannot. Sill both are good and i utilize both.

    Keep trying and learning.

    Getting traffic on Bing, depends on various factors like your keywords (long tail, short tail), traffic, bids, target market, time zone etc etc.

    Analyze your services, target market and plan a campaign accordingly.


    Hope, that helps.
