Send Bids on Unsynced Viewers

This setting determines whether the 3rd party buying system responds to bid requests for impressions where user syncing does not take place, or whether it only bids on impressions for which user syncing occurs.

User syncing must be configured for a minimum of 7 days before an effective pool of synched user impressions is available for bidding.

Ad Pods

This checkbox determines if this ad source will participate in ad pod impressions.

Ad pods are similar to commercial breaks on TV.

Ad pods enable multiple ads to run in each ad spot (e.g., pre-roll, mid-roll, post-roll). 

  • If enabled, RTB Buyers have the ability to run their ad in an Ad Pod (i.e. it can be one of several ads that fill slots within an ad pod).
  • If not enabled, the ad will only run within a single ad spot (e.g., pre-roll, mid-roll, etc.)
  • Buyers have the ability to report on Ad Sequence to understand what position the ad was served in the ad pod.

Ads.txt Classification

Filters traffic from unauthorized or undeclared domains per ads.txt (applies only to website traffic).

  • Undeclared =  ads.txt is not present
  • Unauthorised = Publisher is not authorised to sell the incoming inventory. Buyer can decide whether or not they want to receive Unauthorised/Undeclared supply.
