Search your campaigns

Learn about everything Microsoft Advertising Editor's Advanced Search feature can do for you.

Want to find all text ads that are currently paused and contain the words "sale"? Or maybe you want to see all your keywords with a bid over $1 and more than 500 impressions this month? With the Advanced Search feature, you can do this and more!

  1. To define the scope of your search, select the appropriate account, campaign, or ad group in the left pane.
