What to expect when Facebook imposes limits on the number of ads per page?
Ad Limit Guidance
|Small to medium-sized Pages (advertising less than $100K in their highest spending month in the last 12 months)||250 ads|
|Medium to large-sized Pages (advertising less than $1M in their highest spending month in the last 12 months)||1,000 ads|
|Larger Pages (advertising less than $10M in their highest spending month in the last 12 months)||5,000 ads|
|Largest Pages (advertising $10M or more in their highest spending month in the last 12 months)||20,000 ads|
The need for this change came due to fewer campaigns exiting the Learning Phase, making you spend more budget before the algorithm succeeds to optimize the performance. Meaning that these limitations should be seen as something that can potentially increase campaigns’ performance, however, it will also directly dictate your advertising strategy.

If you are running a small to medium size account, it is most likely that you will not be significantly affected by these changes. However, if you run a complex structure with a lot of content segmented into ad groups, you will need to identify where issues may appear. Either way, this announcement may be a good “excuse” to re-evaluate your strategy.
We periodically help out our clients with a strategic perspective on things. Sharing the steps we would take to review their accounts:
- Campaigns check – have consistency when creating campaigns and pause everything redundant
- Assuming you are splitting or segmenting your campaigns do a thorough check of the following features:
– Events you are tracking (purchase, lead generation, newsletter signups, follower acquisition, and others).
- Ads re-evaluation in order to determine what content works the best. This way you can make sure to put some extra time in a copy that converts.
