Amazon advertising is growing rapidly. It is constantly adding new features to make seller effort more easier and comfortable. Recently, it has come up with a new “Expanded” feature for product targeting in Sponsored Products campaigns.

What is Expanded in PPC?

Expanded is defined to target a single product along with others closely related to it. This can include substitutes, complements, and other products shoppers engage with related to the original product.

How will it work in product targeting?

Expand your product’s targeting to additional closely related items.

By using this expanded feature of product targeting in your Sponsored Products campaigns, you can expand the product targeting to items that are closely related to the original product targeted. This feature is the default setting for campaigns. 

Expanded product targeting helps you to discover additional products related to the items you’re already targeting. 

For example, if you’re targeting a “work boots” to promote your own item against, this feature enables you to target items that include substitutes (other work boots), complements (boot socks), and other items that shoppers may browse for along with the targeted work boots.

How to Use?

  • Expanded product targets updated daily: Amazon automatically updates the underlying products targeted daily.
