Hi Sahara,

Welcome to the community!

That choice depends on a lot of factor. If you are a new advertiser and still not comfortable doing your own bid analysis and changes then Automatic bidding will be helpful to you. The help center article states

'Automatic bidding is ideal for advertisers who don't want to spend a lot of time setting bids, but would like to get the most clicks possible for their ads within their budget. If at any time you don't like the bid suggestions, you can easily switch to using manual bidding which gives you full control to set the bid amounts yourself.'

Hope this helps,

Deepak

Hi there;
In principle I agree with Deepak; though ; I personally don't lie to let systems to take control over cost decision-making. So, I always go with manual bidding.
