How do run of network targets work on Pops?

What is a run of network target?


Run of network targets are available in Pops campaigns, and they match any website a user visits. When you add a run of network target, you're using one target to bid on all traffic.  

How is the winning impression determined for a run of network auction?


When a user visits a site, all run of network targets and any additional matching targets compete, and the target with the highest bid wins the impression. 


In addition to the bid, your campaign's dayparting, frequency caps, geo-targeting, budgets, and other settings determine whether your run of network target is eligible to win an impression.
