Target Sites (Not just Keywords)
Now, you can select specific content sites where you want your ads to show. This will allow you to precisely communicate with those individuals who are most likely to be interested in your offerings.
Within site-targeted campaigns, you can use not only text and image ad formats, but also animated image ads.
Make an Impression
Site-targeted campaigns allow you to bid for placement on a CPM (cost-per-thousand-impressions) basis. These ads will compete in the same auction with CPC (cost-per-click) ads.
