Find your bid strategy status

Your bid strategy status tells you whether your bid strategies are active or not, and why they might be limited. It’s important to review the status of your bid strategies to ensure they’re running as expected. A standard bid strategy is applied to one campaign, whereas a portfolio bid strategy can be applied to more than one campaign. This article shows you where to find your bid strategy status at the portfolio and standard levels.
