Create an engine account
A DoubleClick Search engine account is the object that connects DoubleClick Search with an existing Google AdWords, Bing Ads, Yahoo! Search Marketing, Yahoo! JAPAN (beta - learn more), or Other engine account. If you need to add an engine account to an existing advertiser, you can do this through the advertiser's settings.
Follow these steps to add an engine account to an advertiser in DoubleClick Search:

Select the advertiser from the list.
The Campaigns page for that advertiser appears.
Above the performance summary graph, click the Engine accounts tab.
