Excluding Yahoo Partner Sites

I see we can now elect to have our ads show on bing and yahoo only..but msn only allows us to make these settings on the ad group level.

anyone know of an easy way to set my ad groups to show for only bing and yahoo traffic? I have offer 2,000 ad groups. it's going to take forever to make the setting changes.

i definitely don't want my ads to appear on the yahoo partner network at all. it's total garbage as we all know. i asked msn if they can make changes so we can at least select our ads to show on bing and yahoo on the campaign level, and they said they would take that into consideration in the future. unbelievable.

Yeah, it looks like I'm going to spend my whole Friday changing that setting for every ad group. Fun times. lol

I was gonna suggest using their desktop software but I just tried and not only does it not allow you to do it in bulk by selecting all of ones ad groups but one cannot even do it if one just selects one ad group. They should really try to release features in desktop at the same time as they are released in the web interface.

Ok, actually you can do it in bulk within the web site at the campaign level. Click on a campaign, select all ad groups, click More button, select Bulk Edit, distribution to Networks, Apply. A dialog box pops up erroneously warning you you have unsaved changes but if you check the settings at the ad group level they appear to have saved.

thanks kobayashi. this works. i guess i should have waited a couple days rather then do this all per ad group :) just finished a bunch. now i'm going to do this your way.
