Hello,

 

Automated rules are not available for product groups in shopping campaigns ? The button doesn't seem to be available.

 

Thank you

Hi Adrian,

I believe that automated rules have to be set at the ad group level. A work-around would be to set up each ad group with only one product group and voila you would essentially have separate automated rules for each product group!

Hope this helps!

Can a specialist confirm that setting automated rules is not available at the product groups level ?

 

Thank you Amy. That sounds like a good work around at a first glance, but can you think of conditions that you would set for product groups that you can't set for ad groups with automated rules ?

Hi Adrian,

Good question - not off the top of my head. I try to keep my product groups pretty segmented so that anything in the same grouping would have similar CPA goals, etc, so I would set automated rules based upon the performance goals of each ad group.

Is there a specific rule you are hoping to implement but are unable to?

No, it isn't. Thank you

 

I guess the final answer is that automated rules are not available for product groups, just yet, so issue closed.
