Schedule bid adjustment override a Max CPC location bid strategy?

I have a first page location bid strategy with a max CPC set at $0.35 applied to the ad group, the max CPC is set from inside the bid strategy settings page, the same ad group also has a -50% bid schedule set for certain hours of the day.

Now how will that adds up?

i know if i have setup a percentage in the max cpc instead of a fixed max amount then all i have to do is multiply the bid adjustments, but how is calculated when i have a fixed max CPC ?

Would the schedule bid adjustment override the page location bid strategy?

Hi there,

If you're using the top of search page bid strategy, then that multiplies together with your bid adjustment. So if your bid is $0.25 to be at the top of the page (just because your max is $0.35 doesn't mean that's what you'll always pay) and someone searches during one of the times when you have that negative bid adjustment set, then the bid will decrease from $0.25.

Hope that helps!
