Visitor Behavior Rules help you to react to:
ad placements that generate ad clicks where website visitors behave (or do not) behave in a specified way
By setting triggers, configuring specific conditions and implementing optimization actions, you can optimize your campaigns for quality interactions by blocking/excluding sources that exhibit specific behavior patterns after clicking on your ads.
The above is possible only if you're using visitor behavior tracking, which means you've installed the website tracking code. Since behavior metrics cannot be gauged in real-time but rather measured during a browser session, visitor behavior rules are not real-time and are run with predefined frequency.
Triggering the rule (WHEN)
To configure when a visitor behavior rule will trigger, set the following:
Maximum ad clicks: the maximum number of ad clicks before the rule triggers (to trigger the rule for the first click from a given source, input 0)
Within: the time period the rule will observe
From the same: the click source to apply the rule to (IP address, device, IP range or ad placement)
Page views: specify thresholds based on the pageviews metric
Time on site: specify thresholds based on the time spent on site metric
Interaction level: specify thresholds based on the site interaction level metric
Bot probability: specify thresholds based on the bot probability metric
You can combine behavior metrics. For example, you can configure your rule to trigger for visitors that visit less than 2 pages on your website, while exhibiting low overall interaction with your site.
Rule conditions (WHERE)
You can add special conditions to better control when your rules will be triggered:
Rule actions (THEN)
When the selected source reaches the specified click threshold you can:
Get notified via email
Automatically block the IP address or IP range from seeing your ads, and/or flag a unique device to prevent additional low quality and useless paid clicks
Automatically exclude ad placement from further sending unoptimized, ow quality clicks
Tag the click for future reporting
