Microsoft Advertising Bing Cruise Ads

Microsoft announced a new Microsoft Advertising format for Bing Search named Cruise Ads. It is like Microsoft is creating all these vertical ad formats that in a couple years from now will result in a big consolidation story where Microsoft announced they consolidated the vertical ad formats for simplicity purposes. But that is a story for the future...

As a reminder, Microsoft Advertising launched automobile ads, health insurance ads, credit card ads, and tour and activity ads. Now we have Cruise Ads and I am sure we will see many more verticals in 2022.
