I have some trouble with parsing referring URLs from Bing ads, and I wonder if anyone knows how it works there when about ad URLs. I know that the search is conducted at www.bing.com URL (followed by the CC country code for non-US regions), and also that the URLs of ads show msn.com.

When trying to use a script (PHP, javascript, etc), which domain are you looking into primarily? I checked the logs and I saw bing.com only. This may have already answered my question, but I'm still curious about anyone's experience here.

Not sure if you are trying to insert query strings into your URLS but there is a whole list of parameters you can use to look at data:

That might get you a better idea of where your ads are showing. Here are some examples:

{MatchType}A code indicating the type of match that triggered the display of your ad. This can help you, for example, determine what match types are getting the most clicks.


{QueryString}The search query text that the user entered.
