Hello all,

 

has anybody seen "Affinity Categories" in Interest Targeting? 

What exactly do they mean, and why don't they appear at every account I manage?

 

Thanks in advance,

 

 

Nikoletta

Hello Nikoletta M ! Welcome to the Community !

 

I am not able to see an "Affinity category" in the Interest targeting menu, however I did find this definition , which explains how the system evaluates similar placements, which are popular among the same users.

Hi Nikoletta,

Yes I have these Affinity Categories for display accounts now as well. I believe it's being rolled out to selected accounts. They are micro-segemented groups based on people's interest so you can more precisely target audiences without necessarily building out manual placements based on your own demographic research.

best,
Paolo

Hi Nikoletta,

Affinity Targeting was rolled out recently and is essentially a quick way to target more users without having to do extensive placement research. Think of it as a marrying up of demographic matching and interest categories.
