It’s not live yet, but Bing Ads is teeing up a new keyword visualization tool designed to help PPC managers analyze and identify optimization opportunities faster. Young Shi, a program manager at Microsoft who is responsible for Reporting and BI data visualization for Bing Ads, posted a sneak peek on the Bing Ads blog today.
The new tool allows you to visualize your entire keyword set. Keywords are lumped into performance buckets based on the metric you choose to look at. Each bucket is shown as a blue bar on the graph, and the size of the bar represents the number of keywords in the bucket. There is a slider and side bracket that you can use to adjust and filter the visualization.
The new keyword distribution graph will be available on the Keywords Tab in the Web UI and you’ll be able to view up to four different metrics across a set of graphs. Here is an example that looks at 6,447 keywords by average CPC, Clicks, CTR and average position.
Using the bracket and slider, you can drill down and adjust the graph view to focus on specific keyword sets. The example given below isolates the 11 keywords with the highest average CPC. That keyword set is then represented in the three other graphs as well.
This tool looks like it could prove to be a serious time-saver for many account managers. A date isn’t set, but typically Bing Ads doesn’t wait too long to release a new feature after the initial announcement. What do you think about this new feature?
