Custom Targeting Campaign

Asked by: 421 views User Questions

A. For all qty-8 125×125 zones on one page:

After creating a non-targeted campaign, I then edited this campaign to add ‘Custom Targeting’ data for the ‘Equals’ operator for ‘Custom Field #1′.

I previously created a separate non-targeted campaign.

The objective of my test was to observe the correct media was delivered to the web page when:

* Targeted pages were loaded.
* Non-targeted pages were loaded.

The end result is correct.

It took about 5 to 10 minutes for the media for the targeted pages to start to be delivered.

Is this delay what you expect?

B. When entering text in the ‘Data’ field should it be URL encoded there, as a requirement or good practice, or it’s not necessary?

Any guidance much appreciated.

Thank you,

Robert

    No, this should never be the case. All changes go live immediately. Are you using JavaScript code to display the ads? If you remove that or the code type you generated is non-JavaScript, you probably kept getting a cached ad. Usage of complete and proper code is highly important.

    B. When entering text in the ‘Data’ field should it be URL encoded there, as a requirement or good practice, or it’s not necessary?

    It should not be encoded. If the data is output into any URLs, it will be encoded automatically.
