The Bing Ads platform has suffered an outage over the past few days, and Bing Ads are engineers have been working since then to restore all components of the Bing Ads platform, including the API, Web UI, Bing Ads Editor, Bing Shopping catalog, billing information and Mobile apps.
After visiting the Bing Ads Platform Health blog today (via Search Engine Roundtable) , we saw a new status report from the team saying that a fix has been deployed and data is beginning to be restored:
Engineering teams are seeing some processing improvements in systems after deploying a fix. As of February 10, 2016 7:00 AM PST, Ad Campaign performance reporting is delayed by at the most 16 hours. Important Update: Data for hours between 02/05/2016 9 PM PST to 02/07/2016 11 AM PST is incomplete. We will be updating the data for impacted hours as soon as our system is fully caught up. We will continue to send updates as we learn more. We apologize for the inconvenience caused by this issue.
So, advertisers still cannot access all of their data, but hopefully the Bing Ads team will be able to restore the service to 100% pretty soon. Multiple services are still affected by the outage, and if you rely on Bing Ads we encourage you the check the latest status reports on the website.Further reading: Bing, Bing Ads, Microsoft, outage
