Target CPA is a Google Ads bidding strategy that sets bids to help obtain as many conversions as possible at (or below) the target cost per action (CPA). If the strategy has been working efficiently and is currently under the target CPA, the algorithm may increase the bids to capture more competitive conversions until it hits the target CPA.

Our Approach

dog sitting next to ownerWe applied the test to high volume Generic keywords, during a seasonal peak and then ran a campaign experiment, splitting traffic 50/50 on two different bid settings. We made sure to limit the number of changes to the experiment and control to ensure a fair test, running the same ad copy on the control & test.

After ringfencing the budget for testing, we continued to test until results are statistically significant to a confidence level of 99% and
ensured we had ample testing budget for the smart bidding test (Google recommend the daily budget being 10x your current CPA).
