Ad weight is used to choose how often to pick a specific ad after the goal has already been picked. If there are multiple ads of the same ad format in one goal, they take an even share of the impressions by default. If one of the ads needs to run more frequently you can add a weight to that ad.
Example: A goal has 4 ads. One of them should claim the majority of impressions. Pulse adds a weight of 40% to that ad. The remaining ads automatically split the remaining 60% between them, which means that each ad gets 20% of the impressions.
Duplicate Ad to Goals
Duplicate ad to goals is used to duplicate an ad to one or more goals within its campaign, including the goal it already belongs to. After selecting the menu option, another window opens where you can enter a new name for the ad and select the goals where you want to duplicate the ad.
- Start date is inherited from the goal the ad is copied to.
