Configuring Google Ad Manager ads

Brightspot provides robust ad capability for your pages. This topic will provide you with the information you need to create ads that work with the Google Ad Manager integration.

You must have the Google Ad Manager integration set-up on your site before attempting to create a Google Ad Manager ad. See Google Ad Manager for information on configuring this integration.

To configure ads:

  1. In your Google console, obtain the ID and code for the ad unit that provides the feed. (The ad unit specifies the ad sizes appearing in your content.)

    7. To display the ad as interstitial, toggle on Out Of Page.

      1. Click add_circle_outline. A Custom Targeting Pair form appears.
