Third-party ad tag modification instructions

While creating campaigns on the LiveIntent Platform, you may be using third party ad tags. The content below provides modification instructions, respective to the ad server you’re using, including: DoubleClick Campaign Manager (DCM), Atlas, Sizmek, Mediaplex/Conversant, Medialets,Trueffect, PointRoll, CAKE, AdGear, Bridgetrack and Flashtalking.

Please note: Third party ad tags have to be formatted according to the instructions in order to be compatible with the Liveintent Platform.

 

Ad Specifications 

 

All LiveIntent served ads must be images within the following format:
  • .jpg
  • .png
  • .gif or animated .gif
Recommended ad sizes:
  • 300x250
  • 300x1050
  • 728x90
  • 160x600
  • 300x600
  • 468x60
  • 970x250
As a best practice, LiveIntent prefers to host the image and implement third party tracking tags within our user interface. For each placement, LiveIntent will need: 
  • The image file
  • A click tracker
  • A 1x1 impression pixel
If you prefer to host the image:
  • LiveIntent will use the standard tags
  • If standard tags are not available, Javascript tags will be used. Please note, LiveIntent will have to break the Javascript tag and utilize the no script section.

Please Note: All third party hosted tags can result in a high impression or click discrepancy. As a result, it's recommended that LiveIntent host the image and implement third party tracking tags within our UI.

 

DoubleClick Campaign Manager (DCM)

 

 

Please Note: Google is making an important change that will affect many campaigns, including campaigns running with LiveIntent. Google is sunsetting its standard tags. Beginning in October 2017, image assets will no longer be served through any existing standard tags.

If you are currently using DCM standard tags, we ask that you follow the instructions below, and provide the following as soon as possible: a raw image asset, 1 X 1 impression tracker, and click tracker.

Directions: 
  1. Upload images
  2. Copy and paste the Click Tracker into the “Click URL” field in LiveIntent's UI
  3. Replace [timestamp] with [=DecisionId=] for the 1x1 impression tracker and paste into the “Tracking Pixel 1” field in LiveIntent’s UI
Notes:
  • DecisionID is case sensitive
  • The click URL is actually a click tag and does not require additional modifications.
  • Make sure to keep question mark located after the DecisionId modification within the tag. Removing the question mark will result in reporting discrepancies.
