Budget pacing ratio column

Displays the percentage of spend to the time elapsed in a budget pacing report. Note that this value only appears for reports that are currently running.

Calculated as % of budget spend / % of time elapsed.

  • If the ratio is close to 1, you're on pace to spend your budget for the month.
  • If it's over 1, you're overspending. You may want to lower your bids.
  • If it's under 1, you're underspending. You may want to increase your bids.

A budget pacing report enables you to set a budget (different from a campaign’s daily budget) across multiple campaigns and see if you’re on track to spend it. Learn more.
