eCPM Overrides (Advanced)

Our algorithm automatically calculates the expected eCPM for a given ad network, country, and ad format. You can use eCPM overrides to overrule the algorithm and manually set an expected eCPM.

Using the overrides will change the order in which ad networks are called. For example, if the calculated expected eCPM from FairBid for Network A is $1.01, and Network B is $0.99, without overrides or any targetting criteria, FairBid will try to fill with the highest expected eCPM looking at historical values. In this case, Network A would have the highest expected eCPM. If you wanted network B to try to fill first instead of Network A, you can set expected eCPM using the override option.

To override the expected eCPM of a given ad network

  • Click the section entitled eCPM Overrides (Advanced)
  • Choose the ad network from the dropdown list you want to override
  • Add criteria such as geo-targeting, ad format that you want the override to apply to
  • Click the plus icon.

To remove the override on an expected eCPM of a given ad network

  • Click the section entitled eCPM Overrides (Advanced)
  • Choose rule which you want to delete
  • Click the trash icon
