How to Set Up Sitelink Extensions in Bing Ads

If you’re familiar with Google AdWords, your first experience with Bing Ads may be similar to mine – here we go again.

Bing is obviously heavily based on AdWords (if it ain’t broke…) This can be a good and a bad thing for most advertisers. On one hand, things are familiar enough to remove the panic most people face when opening Bing for the first time. On the other hand, things are just different enough to be a pain when getting into the nitty gritty of campaign structure.

Today we’re going to walk you through how to enable Sitelink extensions on Bing Ads. The value of Sitelinks on Bing is the same as Sitelinks on Google AdWords: they give your customers easy navigation to specific parts of your website, they give you more opportunity to describe your value to your customers, and they make your ad bigger on the search page. It’s a free add-on and should be a no-brainer for most advertisers.

To learn how to set up Sitelink extensions in Bing ads, watch the video below or follow these simple instructions.
