Look at these screenshots from Bing.
Is it just me or has Bing recently done a UI overhaul?
Whoa, I had heard that they were trying to copy Adwords, but I didn't know they blatantly ripped off the design.
I haven't used Bing Ads in almost 2 years, but back then, their UI looked like this:
I stopped using Bing Ads right around the time they prohibited phone numbers in the ad copy. If I recall correctly, this was also around the time they streamlined their UI (it looked the same as the screenshot I posted above, just more organised). But the screenshots you posted tells me they just gave up and copied Adwords.
Seems to me people should be happy that the interfaces are similar. Makes it easier going from one to the other. Think if cars were different with things placed where the manufacturers wanted to. A couple of years ago, my young son thought it strange that I did not look down to shift gear, "how do you know that you put it in drive without looking"? It's because every vehicle is that way, the drive gear in the same place. If it wasn't, you'd have to look each time you get in a different car. Same with software and apps. Besides, there's only so many ways to do it so why not follow the leader?
I been seeing this from a year now, Don't know when it was brought exactly.
Thanks for sharing.
Looks good to me, Bing ads old design sucks.
