Bing Ads Integration

How to integrate AnyTrack with your Bing Ads account and track all your conversions back to Bing Ads, automatically.
Bing Ads Integration

Bing Ads (formerly Microsoft adCenter and MSN adCenter) is a service that provides pay per click advertising on both the Bing and Yahoo! search engines. As of June 2015, Bing Ads has 33% market share in the United States. (DataNize - Zoominfo)

Once you integrate AnyTrack with your Bing Ads account, you will be able to fully attribute all conversions to your Bing Ads campaigns, build audiences according to conversion events and measure your exact ROAS.

Bing Postback URL

Bing does not provide a postback URL. Instead, they provide a javascript pixel that marketers add to the website. To get over this challenge, AnyTrack has fully integrated the Bing Tracking Methodologies so you can send conversions from any affiliate network, CRM, API or website to Bing.

▶ How to track affiliate conversions in Bing (Tutorial).

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 (FKA Bing Ads).

  • You need the Universal Event Tracking (UET) tag on your site.

  • You need an AnyTrack account with a Personal or Advanced subscription.

Integrations steps:

  • In Anytrack: Connect Bing

  • In Bing: Create your Conversion Goals

  • in Bing: Create your custom Audiences

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 already track some events).

  5. Save

👉 Open a new browser tab.

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

    1. Custom Event: Copy / Paste the Event Name from AnyTrack to the Action Field in Bing

    2. Goal Category: Select the appropriate category. (see recommendations below).

    3. Scope: Select the Ad account

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

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

    6. Conversion Window: Select the conversion window - (we recommend 90 days in order to get as much value in the campaign). Yet, this setting might not be suitable for every goal or campaign.

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

Configure conversion goal settings in Bing.

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

🎯 Goal Category

The Bing Goal Category is recommended only. If you prefer to use different category, feel free to select what best suit your needs.

👉 Navigate to your Bing Ads account > Shared Library > Account Level Options

  1. Copy the Tracking template from your AnyTrack account

  2. Paste it in the Tracking template field.

  3. Check the auto-tagging option if it's not already checked.
