    I setup bing ads for a local business with some pretty broad keywords and I am getting practically zero impressions.
    I had the same keywords on google ads and blew through my ad spend in 2 days.
    What has been your experience with bing ads?

    I had the same experience, try to as much as you can more keywords. But with broad match modifier, traffic in bing is very few

    I have a local site that can go through about $150 a day on Google, but so far, after 60+ days on Bing, it's chewed up only $11 worth of spend. Absolutely a joke...
