Best Practices For Better Bidding

A few of the bidding best practices we consistently recommend are:

  • Opting to modify bids on individual sites before blocking publishers when CPAs are high
  • Increasing bids by 25%-50% for top-performing sites to increase their competitiveness
  • Considering always-on campaigns if budget and offer parameters allow
  • And, of course, using Smart Bid


Smart Bid can help you get more value out of Taboola, especially around a big, important consumer holiday where you just can’t afford to fall flat.


Happy New Year! Keep these ideas and tips on hand as you start planning for how your brand will mark the momentous occasion of turning 2020 into 2021.
