Text ads are now automatically eligible to be transformed into Microsoft Audience Ads. You can also designate specific text ads to have native ads as their ad format preference.
A native ad is an ad whose subject matter and visual design are relevant to the page it is displayed on. More and more advertisers are turning to native ads for their proven ability to assist in brand building and to drive purchase intent.
Microsoft Audience Ads appear on select MSN web pages. All clicks on your native ads will take the user to the destination URL you specified when you created your ads.
Microsoft Audience Ads are unique because they’re targeted to each MSN visitor based on our understanding of his or her interests. We compare the visitor's search and browsing history to the website's content, previous site visits, and other factors to determine which native ads to serve. In addition, Microsoft Audience Ads conform to your search ads' existing targeting and negative-keyword settings.
Designating an ad for native ad use allows you to optimize its messaging for native delivery. Here's how:
When Native is selected for ad format preference, Microsoft Advertising will prefer the native ad format for this ad during ad selection. Selecting All will allow this ad to be displayed across the search network, content network (US only), and native network.
At least one search ad is always required in a campaign. If there is only one ad in a campaign and its ad format preference is set to Native, then it will display for both native and search results.
