    Audiences & Lookalikes

    In the targeting section of a campaign you have lots of different subsections to work with. This particular one, allows you to target a specific audience ( that you have uploaded, created or imported from your own DMP) and/or reach Lookalikes of an audience.

    Audiences & Lookalikes

    If you want to target Audiences select the option “Target audiences” and place the list of devices Ids where you need it (following the business rules; mandatory ones, at least one or none of them). Click here for more information.

    If you want to reach lookalikes, select the option “ Target lookalikes”. You can either reach lookalikes but not the audience or reach lookalikes and target the audience too. To read more on how to do this click here.

    Ability to block traffic without domains or bundle IDS

    In addition to be able to blacklist/whitelist bundles, pages and domains, now you have also the ability to block traffic that comes without domains or bundle IDS.

    If App traffic is selected the two options “Only inventory with bundle ID” and “Only inventory with domain” appear (by default OFF).

    Ability to block traffic without domains or bundle IDS

    If Web is selected the option “Only inventory with domain” appears (by default OFF).

    Ability to block traffic without domains or bundle IDS

    For example, when selecting “App” traffic, if a user selects “Only inventory with bundle ID” bidder should bid only for this kind of traffic, blocking everything else (for example inventory with or without domain if there is no bundle ID)

    Targeting Publishers

    We have unified the fields for targeting all publishers’ identifiers. As you know domains had their own field, but as for right now you will see only one field to target Publishers identifiers or lists.

    This section is used to choose the Publishers where to run your campaigns (if used as whitelist) or be blocked (if used as blacklist), by adding them one by one to the following field or by using Publishers lists.

    For more information, you can read the articles Publishers (about managing Publishers lists) or How to blacklist or whitelist publishers in a campaign.

    New drill-down variables for your reports

    In order to make reports more complete and useful we have introduced new drill-down variables for you. Variable that are univocally associated to a publisher. Some of these new variables are:

    • Bundle ID.
    • Domain.
    • Publisher Name.
    • Publisher ID (Site ID/AppID).
    • Publisher Keyword.
    • Publisher Company.
    • Publisher URL
