Recommendation Center Overview
Sometimes it is hard to keep track of or even notice valuable opportunities or optimizations you can make to your campaigns in order to increase performance.
The Recommendation Center is a tab in Taboola Ads that shows different types of actionable opportunities that are aimed at improving different campaign metrics, such as conversion rates, clickthrough rates, number of impressions, and more. This screen summarizes the top recommendations that are available within your Taboola account as well as provides an easy way to implement them in the form of call-to-action buttons.
