That is, after today is over, how many days need to pass before the system expects that 80% of the "Bid strategy conversions" that will be attributed to today will arrive. Note that "Bid strategy conversions" is weighted. If the bid strategy is using a formula column, "Bid strategy conversions" will reflect the multipliers applied by the formula column.
  • For Revenue strategies, the column displays the 80th percentile delay for the "Bid strategy revenue" value. Note that "Bid strategy revenue" is weighted.
  • For Advanced Targeting strategies, the column displays the 80th percentile delay for the "Optimal cost" value.
