Targeting Options

This is the second tab of Campaign settings. You can set the Campaign's targeting here.

👍

Kindly Note

It's important to specify targeting options, if you want your campaign to bid on a specific audience. If you do not select any options, this Campaign will participate into the auctions for any incoming traffic.

When you select any options from this page, the Campaign will bid only for the traffic that satisfies these conditions.

Always make sure that you are 100% certain which targeting will correspond to the traffic sent from your SSPs.

Traffic Source

Here you can select the SSP endpoint(s) for bidding. You can Block and/or Allow traffic sources for this campaign. Red one is blocked and a green one is allowed.

When no particular SSP endpoints are selected, the Campaign will attempt to bid for all of them.

Geo Position

You can set geo targeting via 3 levels: Country, Region, City. You can apply either Exclude or Include options.

Filters

Filters allow targeting by the preset list of data. You can Block and/or Allow lists similarly to what we can do with traffic sources.

Private Marketplace

This option provides you a possibility to set a private auction for specific campaigns using a specific Deal ID that should be passed by the SSP in the request.

Device Type, Traffic Type & Connection Type

Device type targeting is used to show an ad on specific devices. You can choose the device type from 3 options:

  • Desktop;
  • Phone;
  • Tablet.

Traffic type targeting is used to specify the type of required traffic for this campaign:

  • Site;
  • App.

Connection Type targeting provides you with the possibility to filter incoming traffic via its connection:

  • Unknown (not specified in the request);
  • Ethernet;
  • WiFi;
  • Carrier.

If you include any values here, targeting options will be passed only for the corresponding connection types.

OS & Browser

OS — targeting by a specific operating system. You can set targeting for the operating system and its version. If the OS version is newer or equals than the designated value, the targeting is passed (optional).

Browser targeting will restrict ad impressions only for specified browsers. You also can optionally add a minimal version of the target browser.

📘

Please Note

"Include" status near OS and Browser targeting options shows the current status of this option.
You can click on it and change the status to Exclude.

Extention Filters

Extention filters provide you with a possibility to set targeting on specific values that should be passed by SSP as "ext" parameter in "user", "site" or "device" object in the request.

Extention parameter names and their values should be specified on the campaign. Also, you can set the property of an extension filter - Include or Exclude.

The Keyword Filter is a part of Extention Filter functionality, but with an already specified name (keywords). Also can be set with Include or Exclude status.

Date and Time

The date and time option provides you a possibility to set a specific day and/or time range when this campaign will be working. Time in UTC +0

📘

Plaese note

"Include" status near Date and Time targeting options show the current status of this option.
You can click on it and change the status to Exclude.

❗️

Why does bidding fails?

You're sure that all your Targeting should work fine with the traffic you're getting from your SSP, but the Campaign doesn't bid?
