Landing Page

Where you would like bot and crawler traffic to be sent - a safe page that will not affect your click data since it is directed to this page.

Where you want real traffic to go to. This is usually a presell that leads to your offer.

Rotate your links by assigning percentages to them. If your percentages total over 100%, the links rotate based on a percentage of the total.

If you have 3 links of 30%, 60%, and 80%, 30% gets weight of 30 ÷ (30+60+80), or 17.6% effective weight between the other links.

Each network has different minimums for how low you can set a static CPC Day Parting window.

$0.01
Outbrain
$0.03
Gemini (Desktop)*
$0.05
Gemini (Mobile)**
$0.03
RevContent

Content.Ad

*Gemini Desktop minimum of $0.05 is achieved with a Gemini CPC of $0.05 and a Group 1A bid of 0%. Maximus handles this modification for you - simply set the minimum to $0.05 when adding day parting.

**This is achieved with a Gemini CPC of $0.05 and a Group 1B bid of -40%. Maximus handles this modification for you - simply set the minimum to $0.03 when adding day parting. When your campaign is in day parting the CPC will appear as $0.05 in Maximus but is effectively bidding lower with the group bid adjustment that is automatically set.

When Gemini CPC day parting windows go into effect, all other group bid adjustments are set to their minimum.
