  4. If you do not have any existing tracking templates, copy and paste this tracking template:  

    {lpurl}?utm_term={keyword}&identifiers={TargetId}&Campaign={Campaign}&CampaignId={CampaignId}&AdGroup={AdGroup}&AdGroupId={AdGroupId}&AdId={AdId}&Network={Network}

  5. If you're adding the cost per lead tracking template to an existing template you've created to track other parameters, copy and paste this template at the end of any existing templates: 

    &utm_term={keyword}&identifiers={TargetId}&Campaign={Campaign}&CampaignId={CampaignId}&AdGroup={AdGroup}&AdGroupId={AdGroupId}&AdId={AdId}&Network={Network}

Important Note on Tracking Precedence 

The cost per lead tracking template shown above applies at the campaign-level of your Bing Ads account, which will apply it globally to all of your ads. However, lower-level ad levels (such as ad groups or individual ads) tracking templates will have precedence over your global, campaign-level tracking parameters and interfere with cost per lead reporting. 

Copy and paste this tracking template at the end of any tracking templates you've applied at an ad group or individual ad level to ensure accurate cost per lead reporting: 

&utm_term={keyword}&identifiers={TargetId}&Campaign={Campaign}&CampaignId={CampaignId}&AdGroup={AdGroup}&AdGroupId={AdGroupId}&AdId={AdId}&Network={Network}
