Creating a Bing Paid Search Campaign

Kochava provides the ability to track campaigns run through Bing Paid Search. The following document defines the process for setting up a Bing Paid Search campaign within Kochava, linking the Kochava campaign to a Bing Paid Search ad and how the traffic against the Bing Paid Search Traffic campaigns will be displayed within Kochava Analytics and Reporting.

NOTE: Parallel tracking changes the way that Web campaigns are tracked with Kochava. If you are using Parallel Tracking, you must be sure to include ko_click_id={msclkid} in your landing page URL/Final URL.


Data Needed Before Beginning Process:

  • Valid Bing Paid Search account

Parallel Tracking

Parallel Tracking loads a landing page immediately when a user clicks on an ad without taking the user through the tracking redirect. As the same time, the tracking URL process happens in the background, through the parallel click process, without affecting the user experience.


Parallel Tracking

Enabling Parallel Tracking within Bing Paid Search:

  1. Log in to Microsoft Advertising.
  2. Navigate to Settings > Account level options.
  3. Check the Parallel tracking box.
  4. NOTE: Parallel tracking will be enabled for a select set of browsers and ad types to begin with, Microsoft Advertising will resort to sequential tracking for the remaining ad types and browsers.


    URL Options

    NOTE: In order to streamline the Campaign/Segment/Tracker creation process a feature has been added to allow the creation of campaigns and segments while creating a new tracker. For more information about creating a campaign or segment while adding a new tracker, refer to our Create an Install Campaign support document.

  2. Enter the Tracker Name.
  3. NOTE: When a Tracker is created, Kochava automatically generates a name for the Tracker. We recommend that you replace the Tracker name at this point with a clear name of your choosing.


    BEST PRACTICES: For Web Traffic campaigns in Bing Paid Search, you will need to create a unique tracker for each distinct landing page/destination URL. You may select the method to organize the trackers, however it is recommended that all trackers be created within a single campaign and use segments to group various trackers together. At the tracker level, specific names of trackers may be created based upon the landing page destination. If there are a large number of trackers, the Kochava Power Editor may be used to replicate trackers in bulk. For more information on the Kochava Power Editor, refer to our support documentation.
