Tailoring the right content to the right users begins with targeting. When you create an experience, you can target it by user properties (such as device type or geolocation), page properties (such as page type or URL), or dates.
Note: While this table includes the complete list of targeting conditions, no site includes all of them. For example, some conditions are only available for websites and others only for apps.
|Who? (Target by user properties or session behavior)|
|Audience||Users who belong (or do not belong) to a Dynamic Yield audience. Fore example, you can target based on historical behavior (say, users who purchased twice in the past year) vs. targeting by current session behavior.|
|Shared Audience||Users who belong to a Dynamic Yield audience that has been shared from a different site.|
|User Affinity||Users who expressed high interest in a specific product property (such as blue color or show category). Interest is measured by interactions with products, such as views, add to cart, and purchase events in the current and past sessions. Learn more about affinity-based audiences.|
|New User (first session)||Users who are currently in their first-ever session on your site (since the Dynamic Yield script was implemented). Users meet this condition throughout this first session. User identification is done by the Dynamic Yield cookie (and a fallback of local storage), so new users are users that don't have a cookie at the beginning of the session. Learn more about user identification in Dynamic Yield.|
|Active Consent||Targets users based on their Cookie Consent status. True means they gave consent, while False means they haven't.|
|Cookie||Users with a specific value in a specific browser cookie.|

Add a Targeted Experience
Each campaign can include several experiences (for example, a hero banner can provide different experiences for new vs. returning users). To add additional experiences with different targeting, click the "+" icon at the left of the experience.
If the targeting conditions of multiple experiences are met - only the experience defined with the highest priority is served. For example, if a campaign has 2 experiences, for mobile users and search traffic (sorted in that order), and a mobile user comes to your site from Google - only the "Mobile Users" experience will be served.
Note: If the user does not meet the targeting conditions of any of the experiences, the campaign is not served at all for this user.
