Add additional tracking templates to my campaigns

Upgraded URLs separate your tracking information from the landing page URL making it easy to update and manage URL tracking. Here, find out how to create a tracking template at the campaign, ad group, ad, keyword, and Sitelink Extension level.

URL tracking allows you to find out how visitors got to your website. To get set up, all you need to do is add URL parameters to the tracking template. To learn more, see What is URL tracking in Microsoft Advertising?

For search campaigns, you can add tracking templates to:

  • Account
  • Campaign
  • Ad group
  • Ad
  • Keyword
  • Sitelink Extension

New! For Bing Shopping Campaigns, you can now add tracking templates at the account, campaign, and ad group level along with the product group level.

We recommend that you add a tracking template at the account level, but you can also add them at other levels. If you have more than one tracking template, when your ad is served the lowest level tracking template will be appended to your landing page URL.
