Smart/ Catalog linked ads are ads that are pulled from the product catalog and are linked to specific product sets. The catalog is refreshed on a daily basis which filters products according to their status (In-stock and Out of stock) and relevant products picked based on product-wise performance and user response.

There are four categories of Catalog linked smart ads:

1. Auto smart (AdYogi (Pre-defined) Categories) - These ad categories are customized by AdYogi. 

2. Website Category Smart ads - Ads that are linked to a particular category picked directly from the website

3. Imported Categories - These are product sets created manually on Facebook

4. My Category - Handpick from a list of products to create your own categories.
