Adjust your campaign settings to help you tailor your campaign. The campaign settings that you select will apply to all ads within the same campaign. The type of campaign that you choose determines which settings are available to you.
What each campaign setting means
|Campaign name||This is where you enter a name for your campaign. Although Google Ads enters a default campaign name for you, you should choose a name that clearly describes the theme of the campaign so that you can easily find it in your account. Your campaign name isn't visible to your customers.|
The campaign type that you choose tailors the campaign set-up to what's appropriate for your goals.
You can also choose one or more advertising goals. As you continue to use Google Ads, you’ll see relevant suggestions based on the goals that you select.

The Networks setting indicates where you want your ad to appear based upon the campaign type that you chose. For example, with the Google Search Network, your ad can appear on Google search sites and non-Google search sites (like CNN) that partner with Google to show search ads, called search partners.
With the Google Display Network, your ad shows on other sites that partner with Google to show ads.
|Devices||Campaigns target all types of devices, which include desktops, tablets and mobile devices. Later, you can choose to customise ads for different devices.||Learn about types of mobile ads|
|Locations and languages||Your campaign’s ads are eligible to show to customers in your targeted geographic locations, or to customers who have selected your targeted language as their browser’s language setting. We recommend choosing the language that you serve your customers in.||Learn about location and language targeting|
|Bidding and budget||
Choose to set your bids manually for clicks on your ads or let Google Ads do it for you. Depending on your campaign type, you may see additional bidding options to choose from.
Your bid strategy controls how you pay for users to interact with your ads. Your bid limit is the most you’ll pay per click for ads in an ad group. Your budget is the average amount that you’re comfortable spending each day on your campaign. The budget that you choose is entirely up to you, and you can adjust it at any time.
