Recommendations are AI-driven suggestions with one goal in mind: Help improve your campaign performance. Recommendations help you get the most out of your budget by improving bids, keywords, and ads, which can increase the overall efficiency of your campaigns. They can also propose features you may not be taking advantage of as well as help you optimize existing ones.
Microsoft Advertising creates customized recommendations for you by using your account's historical performance, your campaign settings, and trends. Be sure to check the Recommendations tab often as we frequently find recommendations for you to apply.
While we are always trying to help improve your campaign’s performance, sometimes a recommendation isn’t relevant to you or appropriate to your advertising goals. If you see a recommendation type that isn’t working for you, you can temporarily stop seeing them or dismiss them all together. Both options give you an opportunity to leave feedback to help us better support you.
Stop showing this type of recommendation: This will temporarily remove a recommendation type from the Recommendations tab.
Dismiss a specific recommendation: This will permanently remove a specific recommendation from the Recommendations grid.
