Bucksense custom targeting allows you to create and manage Lists so you can target audiences that you know are likely to convert.

How to create Lists

Follow these steps to create a new List:

  1. Click on Black/White List below Data tab
  2. Click on buttonto add a List
  3. Select an Advertiser, add a List Name and Select a list type
  4. You have the choice to either: Bulk upload or Dynamic Editing
  • Bulk upload allows you to upload a csv or txt file (max weight 10 MB) containing your list. This option is recommended for Device ID or Placement ID lists (be sure to properly include all values in the Placement ID, especially for those that start with 0)list-management-3
  • By selecting Dynamic Editing you can manually type your single items into the text area using the slide bar. This option is usually used for lists that need to be frequently updated like ‘App bundle’; list can have maximum 1500 records with “manual” upload, while API upload limit is 10000 records list-management-4

Depending on the list type you have selected, you will need to include the items in the list, as in the samples below:

App Bundle: the App Bundle which identifies uniquely an app. e.g. 1193508329 for iOS APP and com.bucksense.appname for Android
Device ID IFA: the Identify For Advertisers is a temporary device identifier used by the Apple set of handheld devices e.g. 22A29C48-BEA1-4758-B9E5-E661B46C08E9
GEO: format for this type of list is: latitude, longitude, radius (where the radius is in meters). e.g. 41.892986,12.438239,5000.
If you want add a GEO list using a csv file, you need to insert latitude, longitude and radius in 3 distinct columns.
Keyword: a list of specific keywords, that are relevant for your offer/product, inside web/mobile web Site Domains and URL parameters. For example, if you sell footwear, you could create a list including keywords like sneakers, thongs, boots, loafers etc. In this way your ads will be displayed in sites that include these words in their URLs
IP (not allowed for Google campaigns): an IP range (start IP and end IP must be comma separated) e.g.,
Publisher: a list of Publisher IDs e.g. 1100004890, 1108e128591811e295fa123138070049
Placement ID: each Placement has its unique identifier (you can find it in the reports) e.g. 152324f2a35111e291c11231312559e4
Site Url: a list of valid domains e.g. textnow.comwww.textnow.com, http://textnow.com,
Web user id: User Id identifies uniquely a user in a web site (like cookies)
Postal Code: a list of valid zip codes e.g. 00124, 00119, 00126, 00135.
