Bid optimization

When you use autobidding, the system reads information about ad delivery and audience, and optimizes your bids.
Bid optimization mainly uses the following information:

Internet users’ informationPlacement information
Interested category
When the audience visited (week, hour)
Website visits
Search terms in the past
Ad performance
Audience list
Ad delivery informationAd type
Ad performance

Account structure

Autobidding uses information for optimization, so you don't need to create separate campaigns or ad groups based on audience information such as age or gender. If you have ad groups for each age or gender group to adjust bid, organize them and make your account structure simple.
Note, to make multiple ad groups into one, integrate the ads of other ad groups into the ad group that has the most actual values of the indexes (conversions or clicks, video views) that are targeted for optimization.
