Creating a new search ad campaign in Microsoft Advertising is easier than ever!
Here is some information about what you'll see in each step:
Give your campaign a unique name. It's a good idea to have your campaign's name reflect its goal.
Note: A campaign name cannot contain scripts, HTML, or other markup language.

|This is the language you'll write your ads in. This should match the language of the sites that you'd like your ads to appear on. Learn more about language options in Microsoft Advertising|
|This is where in the world you want your ads to appear. You can target or exclude specific countries/regions, states/provinces, cities, or zip/postal codes. Learn more about how language and location targeting affect who can see your ads|
|If you're targeting by location, who exactly should see your ads? People in your targeted locations, people searching for or viewing pages about your targeted locations, or both?|
|Enter the URL of your website, and Microsoft Advertising will search it for ad group and keyword suggestions. If your website doesn't have all its necessary content yet, select the My website is not ready checkbox.|
|Get keyword suggestions|
|If you entered a URL for Your website, this is where you'll see our suggested ad groups and keywords. You can also enter a different URL or a word or phrase relevant to your product or service and get keyword suggestions for it. Select the arrows to move ad groups or keywords into the Enter keywords box on the left.|
|If you're entering keywords manually, type or paste them here. In this box, you'll also set the appropriate match type for your keywords. Learn more about keyword match types|
|Add new ad group|
|You likely have more than one facet of your campaign, so it's a good idea to create a separate ad group for each. For example, if you sell men’s clothes, you might have separate ad groups, with separate keyword lists, for dress shirts and casual shirts. Learn more about organizing your account and campaigns|
|Learn about the different types of ads you can create|
|We recommend creating multiple ads in each ad group. Experiment with your wording and keywords so you can see what works best. Here are some tips on writing effective ads|
|Ad extensions are additional pieces of information about your business that you can add to your ads. We will feature the ad extensions that are most relevant to the campaign goal you set at the very start. Learn more about ad extensions|
