Yahoo!-Bing Pay-Per-Click Advertising

Bing Ad’s are the sponsored ads at the top of both Bing and Yahoo search engines. Yahoo/Bing are estimated at only having 8.27% of the Canadian search market. While that limits opportunities, it’s also worth noting that the cost per click is typically cheaper than Google.

Bing Ads are the sponsored ads at the top of both Bing and Yahoo! search engines. Yahoo!/Bing are estimated at only having 7.21% of the worldwide search market. While that limits opportunities, it's also worth noting that the cost per click is typically cheaper than Google.

What is Bing Advertising

Yahoo! and Bing are two of the main competitors of the titan search engine, Google.

While they command a smaller market share of the search world, Yahoo!-Bing advertising can be an effective way to collect additional leads and sales at a lower cost to a specific target demographic. Bing is the default search engine for Microsoft Edge, which is the default browser on any msn or Microsoft device.

Generally, users who are searching through Bing are of an older demographic with higher household incomes. The unique searchers on Yahoo!-Bing spend 26 percent more money online than their average Google counterparts.

Due to the fact that the competitive space with Yahoo!-Bing PPC advertising is much less saturated than Google, marketers will also see significantly lower Cost-Per-Click (CPC )from this strategy. This should also result in a lower Cost-Per-Lead (CPL) than Google Adwords, further improving return on investment.

In addition to their lower search engine market share, Yahoo! and Bing ads are both managed within the Bing Ads management console (which shares the same look and feel as Google Ads), and default reporting combines results from the two engines.

Advantages Of Bing Advertising

Even though the search volume going through Yahoo! And Bing is lower than Google, there are still several benefits to consider. These include:

  • Less advertiser competition means lower CPCs, which translates into lower CPL for your business.
  • Bing and Yahoo! Typically have an older demographic of users (average age is 35+), thus also more likely for Yahoo!-Bing users to have children or be consumers of products and services that cater to an older customer base. This can be an advantage and play into the key target demographic for some businesses.
  • Bing users, on average, have more “blue collar” users than “white collar,” which can also be advantageous based on what your business’ key target demographic is.
  • Keeping these advantages in mind can help you make the most of your marketing budget when it comes to search engine marketing. Depending on what your business does and who your target audience is, you might be better off putting a bit more money into Bing advertising in Toronto, rather than competing in the oversaturated Google market.

    Why Is It Important?

    Bing advertising in Toronto can be an incredibly useful tool for certain industries and markets.

    Due to the lower competition and different demographics of the typical Bing searcher, ad dollars spent here can have a fantastic return on investment. Where you might have had to spend hundreds of dollars on Google to achieve a couple of conversions, you could spend a fraction of that on Bing and get highly targeted results with great conversion rates.

    The Bing and Yahoo! Advertising platform is also similar to Google Ads, meaning it can be managed in much the same way. This means you can target for a variety of different demographics, geographic locations, and other factors to help serve your business to the most appropriate audience.

    Yahoo!-Bing Pay-Per-Click Advertising FAQs

    Yahoo!/Bing advertising works in much the same way as Google Ads does. Your account manager will perform extensive keyword research to determine which ones to bid on to generate the most interest in your brand. They will then set a maximum bid for that keyword, meaning that is the most amount of money you would be willing to spend to appear for that search term. Then, every time a user performs a search, a live auction is held and whichever company had the highest maximum bid will win. If your bid was the highest by a significant margin, you will only pay one cent higher than the next highest bid, to minimise the amount you have to spend to rank for your chosen keywords.

    As the demographics of the users on Bing and Yahoo! tend to be older and with a higher household income, any business that wishes to target these audiences could benefit. This might include seniors insurance, legal services, retirement villages, and more. Additionally, as many of the users of Bing will likely have children, childcare services could effectively target an audience with a high conversion potential.

    Costs will vary depending on the competitiveness of your chosen keywords, how many you choose to target, and the search volume for that particular word. Regardless of these factors, Yahoo!/Bing advertising will be considerably cheaper than the same keywords in Google, due mainly to the fact there are fewer users on Bing. This makes it a potentially very smart investment for certain businesses looking to maximise the return on investment for their marketing dollars.
