Define Content Pool By Tag:
The content pool can be defined also by a tag or group of tags based on related topics, solutions, products, etc. (To add a tag to your content read here.)
You can decide whether you want both conditions to be in ‘And’ Or ‘Or’ relation.
You can also select the number of page views for the pages in the content pool. For example, you can exclude pages that have less than 10 page views.
The last step is to determine if you want the content pool optimization to be conversion for specific or all goals or engagement.
You can select all goals or specific ones. In this case, our engine will present content optimized to lead visitors to conversion to any goal or to specific one.
Select engagement for the pool to keep the visitor engaged with more content.
