Network Targeting

Updated 3 months ago by Daniel

Each network has different options for targeting, and some of these options are available during campaign creation in Maximus. Additional targeting can be completed on the network platform after the campaign has been created. Networks have different ways of implementing targeting. Please review the network's documentation and talk to your network account rep to make sure you are targeting correctly.

If a setting can be modified in Maximus, we do not recommend modifying that setting on the network platform. Only modify these settings within Maximus.

Targeting Available During Campaign Setup in Maximus

During the Add Campaign process, the first step allows you to select targeting preferences.

For all networks, you are able to choose Country Targeting and Platform Targeting. Site Rule Set is also available during campaign creation, and when Taboola is selected the campaign is submitted to Taboola with a comment. For all other networks the Site Rule Set field is for record keeping purposes only.


Yahoo Gemini Additional Targeting During Campaign Setup

If Gemini is selected on campaign creation, a new final step is added called Gemini Settings. Maximus will submit the campaign to Gemini with Age Targeting, Gender Targeting, and Gemini Bid Adjustments. There is an additional Fire & Forget™ Optimization selection for the group you want to apply Fire & Forget™ to. Additional information on setting up Gemini campaigns can be found in the Using Gemini documentation.

Additional Network Targeting After Campaign Creation

These settings can be changed in the network platform for more targeting options. Maximus does include Country Targeting during campaign setup, but some networks offer more precise levels of Geo Targeting like State, DMA, and more depending on the network.
