Google Ads

From Google:

Apply different types of bid strategies to manage your bids depending on your performance goals.

What they are: Choose from strategies that are applied to a single campaign (such as manual CPC bidding), or flexible bid strategies such as “Maximize clicks” or “Target search page location” that can be applied across campaigns, ad groups, and keywords.

What to do: You can change your bid strategy type at any time. Use the Settings tab to change the bid strategy type for a single campaign, or click Bid strategy on the Ad groups or Keywords tabs. Visit your Shared library to create a new flexible bid strategy.
