Bing gives online marketers new tool to monitor ad timing

Bing's ad platform now enables online marketers to see when a user initially clicked on an ad that ultimately led to a conversion, rather than just logging the time of conversions. This new capability was created to recognize the fact that there is often a delay between when someone is attracted to an ad and when they end up buying the advertised product. The idea is that knowing when serious customers are most likely to respond to ads can help online marketers manage the timing of their ad campaigns.
