Contexts allow you to target readers based on their circumstances (i.e. the reader's context).
When creating a context, you can define its type and whether or not you want to use Poool's native groups within this context.
If you don't use native segmentation, your readers will be grouped as one in an "All Users" group or in custom groups.
If you wish to assign a common scenario to all readers matching this context, it will be easier to do it this way, instead of duplicating the same scenario in the 4 native groups.
The default context allows you to address all of your readers, whatever their context. It is created by default by Poool but you can change whether or not to use Poool native groups.
Poool offers 4 types of custom contexts: Custom Value, Location, Device Type and Content Type.
This context type allows you to use any custom data set in the code of your pages, for example a rubric name.
This context type allows you to address your audience from a specific country.
Available values: 250 countries
This context type allows you to address your readers based on the type of application/site they are browsing on.
This context type allows you to address readers based on the content they are trying to access.
To use this context, you'll need to add the 'free'/'premium' tag to the coding in your webpages:
Former Poool implementation:
New Poool implementation (Audit and Access scripts) :
New Poool implementation (Access script only) :
With advanced contexts, you can combine the values of the following contexts:
So, for example, you can create a context that targets your users in Ireland, who are visiting your website on a mobile device.
Context priority order
If you set up multiple contexts, here is the order in which they will be considered:
Country of origin
Now that you know what contexts are, let's move on to setup!
