With the aim to respond to your needs more quickly and appropriately, we have jotted down the most frequently asked questions about DSP Creatives.



On the Ad Cards settings screen, what is the difference between Ad vendors vs. Ad attributes?

  • Ad Vendor: Any Ad partner with an implementation within the Ad above and beyond the Ad Server. Examples include Brand Safety tools or Rich Media.

  • Ad Attributes: Include aspects of the creative including HTML5, expandable creative, etc. This section requires completion with at least one attribute.

Is there a preference to use JavaScript or iFrame tags?

In general, we prefer JavaScript tags. Overall Zeta DSP has seen lower discrepancies with third-party Ad Server data when using JavaScript creative tags.

Can I run non-clickable Ads through the Zeta DSP?

We do not allow Ads that are not clickable to be uploaded into our DSP. Ads that cannot be clicked, or that click through to a landing page unrelated to the creative message, will be flagged and you will be asked to modify them before they are submitted to Ad exchanges for auditing.

Can I deliver animated GIFs to mobile inventory?

Animated GIFs can be uploaded as image ads and run on mobile inventory without HTML5 formatting concerns. Just keep in mind that there is an additional spec recommendation of a max 15-second animation length and a max of 3 loops for the GIF animations. 

I noticed some Ad sizes are performing better than others. Should I pause or remove the under-performing Ad sizes?

Our models are always optimizing to the best performing Ads and Ad sizes. Additional Ad sizes help increase the volume of bid requests and improve the chances of delivery. Losing an entire Ad size could result in under-delivery. For this reason, it is best not to limit the Ad sizes you traffic to the campaign. If you want to help the under-performing Ad size, introducing a newly designed Ad for this size may benefit the campaign performance.

What is the maximum ad name character length?

 255 characters
