GT gets rid of some bidding rules
Where did price pinning go?

 4:54 pm on Feb 4, 2004 (gmt 0)

I use GT for a couple accounts, and I was looking through OV bids today, and all of my bids have changed dramatically.

It turns out GT got rid of some bidding rules, and if your account used those - it just deleted them. I didn't receive an email from GT about these rules changes.

I have a couple areas where one competitor is determined to bid 300-500% of the 2nd place bid - so of course, I price pin him and within a couple weeks, his ad goes offline for the rest of the month, so we're number one with a much less overall cost.

Is there still a way within the GT rules manager to use price pinning - or is it time to switch auto bidders for some of these accounts?
