Bid Adjustment is a new feature in Google Adwords using which you can target the user's device, location and time. This helps advertisers better control their ad spend and increase their CPA and total revenue generation.Bid adjustments make it easy to raise or lower your bids based on user context. For example, you can change your bids for customers viewing your ad on an iPhone in your city/metro area vs. a customer viewing it on their desktop in another city.
