Look-back refers to the amount of time that a content item can appear on Taboola content recommendations after it was published. Look-back settings help ensure that old or irrelevant recommendations items do not appear on Taboola Feed.
These recommendations are powered by Taboola’s predictive engine, which typically performs at double or triple the CTR of non-personalized recommendations in the same placements.
