You can target banner ads by specific keywords, interest categories, or both. If you choose to target any keywords, your ad will be displayed on the new tab page of users who previously searched for those keywords.

If you choose to target any categories, your ad will be displayed on the new tab page of users who are interested in websites relating to your chosen category.

After selecting your keywords and/or categories, you can enter your bid for each individual keyword/category or you can set one bid for all keywords/categories. To maximize the chance that your ad is displayed, we recommend you use our suggested bid.
