  2. Select required values for the rule expression:
    • The frequency for rule applying from drop-down list Check time
    • The time period of data for analysis applying from drop-down list Analyze data

Bidding Rules examples

Let's break Bidding Rules down with the examples below:

Case 1. Imagine that you want to limit a specific Site or Application to 100 Impressions. For this you should create the following bidding rule:

10261026

This rule means that when the amount of Impressions for a specific Site or Application reaches the value of 100 for the period of time specified in Analyze data for the last field, Creatives will be paused for this Site or Application. This rule will be checked for compliance with the condition every 3 hours.

Case 2. Let's assume that you want your Campaign to buy from a Site or Application with CPM > 0.1. For this you should create the following bidding rule:

10131013

In this case, when the value of CPM for a specific Site or Application is 0.1, this Site or Application will be added to the selected Filter. The rule will be applied once a day for the volume of data for the last 1 day. After that, you can apply such Filter to your Campaign.

Case 3. You can add several expressions in one rule by clicking a "+" icon. The conditions will be linked by the AND rule.
