EnhancedCpcBiddingScheme Data Object - Campaign Management

Defines an object that represents the enhanced CPC bid strategy type.

With the EnhancedCpc (enhanced cost per click) bid strategy, you set your ad group and keyword bids, and Microsoft Advertising will automatically adjust your bids in real time to increase your chances for a conversion. Your bid will go higher on searches that are more likely to convert and lower on searches less likely to convert (up or down, this change will be made after we apply any bid adjustments you have set). Over the long haul, though, we will try to make sure that your average CPC is not higher than your bid. If you haven't optimized your campaign yet, Enhanced CPC should reduce your cost per conversion and increase your total conversion count while respecting your current budget.

Differing from the MaxClicks, MaxConversions, and TargetCpa bid strategies, with the EnhancedCpc bid strategy, Microsoft Advertising will not actually change your stored ad group or keyword bid settings. You can continue to set new bids, and we will use the new values as a starting point next opportunity.


For a new campaign we recommend that you start with EnhancedCpc and then when the campaign has enough conversion history, you can update it to use either the MaxConversions or TargetCpa bid strategy.


For search ad and dynamic search ad campaigns, the EnhancedCpc bid strategy is available to all advertisers worldwide. Note that we will only "enhance" your bids when your ads serve in the following countries/regions: Australia, Canada, France, Germany, India, Italy, Netherlands, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, United Kingdom, and United States. When your ads serve outside of these countries/regions, your manual bids are unaffected.

For Microsoft Shopping Campaigns, the EnhancedCpc bid strategy is available to advertisers in Australia, Canada, France, Germany, India, United Kingdom, and United States.
