Yahoo Gemini rolled out a couple of new features ahead of the big holiday shopping push.

Conversion Optimization For CPA

Advertisers can now set cost per acquisition (CPA) targets for automated bid optimization strategies.

You’ll need to have Yahoo’s universal tracking pixel, Dot, set up on your site and enough conversion data gathered in order to use a conversion-based bidding strategy.

Target Based on In-App Actions

Advertisers can now target users based on the actions they’ve taken in an advertiser’s own app.

With this new option for Custom Audience targeting in Gemini, advertisers can set up audiences based on the types of actions they’ve taken in the advertiser’s app. This also relies on Yahoo’s Dot pixel, which will need to be implemented in your app.
