"Other engines" account

To report on unsupported engines before Search Ads 360 introduced engine track accounts, you needed to create an engine account of type "Other engines", and then create placeholder keywords in the engine account. While "other engines" accounts and placeholder keywords are still supported, it's recommended that you use an engine track account instead.
