How to adjust Target CPA when conversions went down

Hi all,


I noticed conversions in one of my campaigns went down last month compared to previous period. I listed changes that I made below, I wonder if any of these caused the drop in conversions:


- Location bid for New York increased by 10%, but conversions went down (no idea why..)

- Tablets bid decreased by 10%, and conversions went down

- Target CPA remains the same, and they are all higher than cost/conv. in the past three months

- Anything else hasn't been changed. 


What adjustments should I make in order to get more conversions?

1. Were tablets converting previously?

2. Did spend stay the same?

3. Did CPC go up?  (i.e. less overall traffic).
