Outcome based buying will be deprecated on July 1st, 2023

    • Line items using outcome based buying to pay-per-view (PPV) can use bidding strategies that maximize viewable impressions or conversions.
    • Line items using outcome based buying to pay-per-click (PPC) can use bidding strategies that maximize clicks or conversions.
    • You can further optimize your line items by using automated bid strategies that target viewable CPM or target CPA. 
  • Custom bidding: You can improve the cost efficiency of your bids by using custom bidding to define how much an impression is worth to allocate more value to impressions that align closer to your campaign’s goals.
  • Enhanced automation: You can leverage a collective set of historical automation data to help improve how your algorithm makes decisions.
  • Optimized targeting: You can reach more potential customers by finding new and relevant audiences beyond your manually-selected audience segments.

Tag guaranteed deals will begin deprecation June 1st, 2023

Starting June 1, 2023, Display & Video 360 will begin the deprecation of tag guaranteed deals as a transaction method.

If you’re targeting tag guaranteed inventory, here are a few things to consider:

  1. Go to Campaigns and then Line items to select a line item.
  2. Select Line item details
  3. Under Targeting, in the Inventory sources section, remove the tag guaranteed inventory.
  4. Select another inventory type. For example, programmatic deal. You can also contact the publisher directly to discuss inventory options.
