Eliminate unwanted traffic across campaigns (Negative keyword lists)

Apply entire lists of negative keywords to multiple campaigns in Microsoft Bing Ads Editor v11.
Important

Shared negative keywords lists are not available in Bing Ads Editor for Mac just yet. Don't worry, it's coming soon!

An easy way to filter out unwanted traffic is by using negative keywords—specific words or phrases that help prevent your ad from showing to customers who are unlikely to click your ad. With a shared library, you can apply entire lists of negative keywords to multiple campaigns. The shared library makes negative keyword management easy because, to make a change across campaigns, you only have to edit a single list.
