Advanced Optimization Settings

These optional settings give you more control over how you would like the optimizer to act. If you do not select Advanced optimization settings, then SiteScout calculates these values for each campaign based on the other parameters you have set for it.

Note: If you select the Advanced optimization settings checkbox, you can and should change the default settings based on your campaign's goals.
