Content ads: Reach your audience on their favorite websites

If you know that your target audience frequents certain websites, site targeting makes it easy to get your relevant content ads in front of them.

Are you taking advantage of the power of content ads? Content ads are text or image-based ads that appear next to relevant content on major Microsoft sites and participating partner sites, such as CNBC.com. Some partner sites allow advertisers to target their sites, which means you can forgo the use of keywords and instead place bids on entire websites.

Read the Community Blog post Community Blog post for details about our growing list of sites available for targeting, including MSNBC, the Advance Internet Digital Network, Hotmail, and the Rodale Digital Network. You can learn more about content ads and site targeting in our Learning Center, or jump in and get started now with our Add a placement to an ad group Help topic.
