Introduction

One of the advantages to using Perpetua is not having to worry about performing constant search term research to find new keywords and ASIN targets to add. That is many hours staring at a spreadsheet! Perpetua's ad engine does all of the heavy lifting by automatically adding any target that it thinks will bring you a sale. This is called Harvesting.

Harvesting works based on how many targets are currently in a goal. The more targets you have, the more conversions are required to add new ones.

  • By default, everyone will have Automated Harvesting ON.

  • If you'd like Perpetua NOT to harvest/add any keywords automatically to your Amazon or Walmart goals based on performance data, you have the option to turn this OFF entirely.

  • If you want Perpetua to only add targets that have passed a certain number number of conversions, you can set a custom threshold.

Follow the steps below to find out how you can adjust your settings.

Note: Automated harvesting can only be turned off at the goal-level, not at the account level.


How to Turn Off Harvesting

  1. Click on the goal you want to turn off keyword harvesting for.

2. Click on the "Advanced Settings" icon at the right-hand side of your dashboard, in your configurations box.

4. Click on the "Harvesting" tab in the left-hand menu. Toggle OFF "Auto Add Targets" and then hit "Save Changes". Then you're done! 🎉

In the image below, Auto Add Targets is ON by default.


How to Set a Custom Threshold

  1. Click on the goal you want to set keyword harvesting custom thresholds for.

2. Click on the "Advanced Settings" icon at the right-hand side of your dashboard, in your configurations box.

4. Click on the "Harvesting" tab in the left-hand menu. Toggle ON the custom harvesting threshold. Enter the number of conversions you want a keyword to have before it is harvested. Hit "Save Changes". Then you're done! 🎉
