The number of clicks when the rule will run at 16:00 will not be the real number at that hour, it will be probably the number of clicks from h 13:00.

 

This page teaches us about the delays : https://support.google.com/adwords/answer/2544985?hl=en

 

"In most cases, your account statistics (such as clicks, conversions and impressions) are delayed by less than three hours. For example, the total of all clicks received by 6 p.m. on Friday will be available by 9 p.m."

 

My advice would be to create more such rules for different hours , using the data from the same day. The automated rules do not have unfortunately an option for recurrence , that is to set 1 rule to repeat itself severel times per day.

Hello, Bubble.

It appears to be right. You can also preview your rules, to see what changes would be triggered should you choose to run them, just for extra safety.

"Using Data from same day" ? What about the delays in the interface ?

 

What happens if this rule keeps keywords running and the condition is met at h 17:00 ? For example at 16:00 it records 64 clicks and at 17:00 the interface is refreshed with data and you see 80 clicks ?

Wouldn't you like to have another rule to check also for the click volume at 17:00 and at the next hours ?

 

At what level do you set this rule , campaign, ad group, keyword ?
