Create a seasonality adjustment

Seasonality adjustments are an advanced tool that can be used to inform Smart Bidding of expected changes in conversion rates for future events like promotions or sales.

Seasonality adjustments are currently available for Search, Shopping, and Display campaigns and are only compatible with Target ROAS, Target CPA bid strategies and Smart Shopping campaigns.

Note: Use seasonality adjustments only if you expect major changes to conversion rates, because Smart Bidding already manages seasonal events. Seasonal adjustments are ideal for short events of 1-7 days. They may not work as well if you use them for extended periods (more than 14 days at a time). Seasonality adjustments are currently available for Search, Shopping, and Display campaigns.
