    Has anyone here ever used Bing PPC? If so what were your results? Were they as strict and annoying as Google?

    Nope, never tried it, it might be cheaper though since it is less used

    CPC costs are cheaper, but there is also noticeably less traffic.

    We ran a campaign. Cheaper than Google and we actually got some pretty decent results from it. ROI was good as far as our needs were concerned.

    I didn't pay much attention to bing actually. I would love to hear something from people who did. Is this worth the effort?

    Bing is second alternative to me than Google. But people still would use Google PPC than Bing PPC as we all know Google is worldwide and has much users than Bing.

    Yes, we have been using it for some time now.
    1. Traffic is a lot smaller
    2. CPC is cheaper
    3. Stick to Bing/Yahoo Sites only
    4. Geographic specificity is not as good

    I would recommend you give it a try

    Yes I tried them and I wouldn't recommend paying to advertise on Bing/Yahoo platform because it's so easy to rank pages in these engines with some basic SEO. Also, their traffic is so small compared to Google but yet they still try to act like they're on Google's level...please! Actually, my experience with them was worse than Google because they banned my account and didn't give me a reason why - and furthermore they didn't even let me delete my credit card information or keep my traffic data that I paid for. At least if Google bans your account they still let you login and have access to your traffic data that you paid for.

    P.S. Their customer service is terrible! It's like the left had doesn't know what the right hand is doing. It's like they got a bunch of 5 year olds working the phones.

    I would suggest that is a little harsh on them. They are definitely not up to the level of Google, but their ROI is definitely better.

    No, no yet personally, but i've heard many good conversion stories on other boards related to bing ppc. So i think you should give a try and share your results with us. So more of us can get benefit :)

    What kind of results did you get? Like SoftDev mentioned above, sharing more details about your experience can help other members benefit from your experience.

    It is less expensive because fewer people using it and less competitive than google so far.

    I have not personally used this service myself and I doubt that I will. I do not really go to Bing for anything.
