Factorized Bidding: Audience, Domains, Inventory
Factorized Bidding can help you manage bid prices more flexibly and in the end, minimize the number of line items. You can apply separate bid prices for different audiences/exchanges/domains and target them all within one line item.
Let’s take the Factorized Bidding for audience as an example. Say you’ve got a line item that should target people from Denmark who are using their mobile devices. To show the ad more to those users, you can create a separate audience with these targeting rules and add a multiplier.
