    • 10. 3rd Party Rich Media Common Themes Hints and Tips Look for specific „keywords‟ in the code, they vary little from vendor to Macros may differ from ad server to vendor and some are even ad server but they end up doing the universal. The keywords will equivalent tasks invariably be placeholders to input the macros opposite and almost always on single lines of their own [timestamp] for cache busting %c for clicks var abcclick = „‟ or var abc clk= „‟ or var %n for impressions abcred = „‟ or similar for click counters %i counts impressions for interstitials ord= for cache busting %u pulls in the click URL %c can be used before the „http://...‟ reference in the noscript part of the tag %h shorthand for the http://ad.doubleclick.net domain %i should be inserted before the „http://...‟ %t pulls in the target window value reference of the interstitial script source

    • 13. Doubleclick Instream Rich Media – Common Ad Type TraffickingPreRoll Video• Dailymail, Metro, Evening Standard all use the Brightcove Player. TIN to move to it in the future.• Brightcove and DfP, completely compatible.Step One: DfP Product Type will need to be „Streaming‟.
    • 14. Doubleclick Instream Rich Media – Common Ad Type TraffickingStep Two: The Creative Type will need to be Streaming Flash because with Brightcove the file type will be .flv – Note VAST Redirect – this is an incoming industry standard that will be similar to Internal Redirects between DfP and DfA, although across multiple providers.
    • 15. Doubleclick Instream Rich Media – Common Ad Type TraffickingStep Three: There‟s not much to input here – just give the ad a relevant name and change the red light to green. Ensure the Dimensions are set to 300x225. Any clickthru you have needs to be added to the text box illustrated. Leave the setting „Progressive‟ alone and seeing as the files are usually over the max limit of 300kB, you will need to FTP the copy check the option button „External Hosted‟. The URL to the copy should go into the „High Stream URL‟ field, although adding it to Low and Mid doesn‟t hurt. Time the video by viewing it and add the seconds value into the „Video Length‟ field.
    • 16. Doubleclick Instream Rich Media – Common Ad Type TraffickingStep Four: If the agency/advertiser has supplied their own pixel tracking, paste this URL into the „3rd Party Imp. URL‟ text field. Press Submit. The creative then gets assigned to the Ad Placement as normal.
    • 17. Doubleclick Studio Rich Media – Common Ad Type TraffickingAd Formats• Auto-initiated and user initiated video streams, within standard ad sizes (MPUs, Leaderboards, Belly Bands).• Interstitials (non-video)• Expanding (non-video)• Fixed flash-in-page (non-video)• Flash-in-flashTypical Uses On The Network• Expandables, bespoke and standard• Metro-Style Page PeelsGeneral• Built and managed by Creative Solutions (Shane, Mustafa)• Requires Doubleclick approval, moving toward self-QA• Copy creation workflow the same per format
    • 18. Doubleclick Studio Rich Media – Common Ad Type TraffickingStep One: Upon Creative Solutions making the copy and it being approved by Doubleclick QA, we receive this auto email. Note the highlighted alpha numeric value.
    • 19. Doubleclick Studio Rich Media – Common Ad Type TraffickingStep Two: Copy this alpha-numeric value and find the relevant advertiser in DfP (or make a new one as necessary). Paste it into the field illustrated below and click on the submit button. The Creative then gets associated with the Advertiser.
    • 20. Doubleclick Studio Rich Media – Common Ad Type TraffickingStep Three: After a typical 10/15 minute reload time the ad will appear in the Advertiser in the Trafficking Module. Click on the Creative Tab at the Advertiser level to manage the creative. Name it, confirm positioning and 3rd Party Tracking/Clickthru(s) as necessary. Don‟t forget to greenlight it.
    • 21. Doubleclick Studio Rich Media – Common Ad Type TraffickingStep Four: Build the Order and any Ad Placements as normal. On the Creative Tab at the Ad Placement level (not to be confused with the Creative Tab at the Advertiser level previously), simply assign the creative as you normally would.
    • 22. Instream & Doubleclick Studio Rich Media Common Themes Hints and Tips Will mostly be produced and Aside from the execution, values managed internally via Creative like Metro Page Peel positioning Solutions remain the same ad to ad, as per Driven by large advertising deals most other formats.

    • 27. Custom Ad Creative – Common Ad Type TraffickingPublisher Redirects• Mostly used by overseas resellers, e.g. iBelieve (Ireland) that use their own Adservers• Largely managed by AdMeld now• Use of macros redundant, discrepancies will occur, clicks often cannot be counted by us (except for DfP tags)• Essentially the use of Adserver Page Tags as Custom Creative Types in DfP• Basic HTML required• If receiving DfP tags, they must be trafficked as Internal Redirects• Common technologies include » Other DfP users » Adtech (Helios) » Zedo » Open Ad Stream (OAS) » OpenX » Some proprietary systems
    • 28. Custom Ad Creative – Common Ad Type TraffickingRule Sets (Adform Redirects)• Some 3rd parties have yet to be recognised by DfP and thus automatically rendered to include macros in the creating Creative workflow. Therefore we need to create our own Rule Set to do this for us, in order to minimise error and to counting impressions with a minimum of discrepancy and count clicks. Adform is one such 3rd Party.• As others come along and proliferate, create further Rule Sets to accommodate these.Step One: Create an ad placement as normal. Create a 3rd Party Tag creative type.
    • 29. Custom Ad Creative – Common Ad Type TraffickingStep Two: Name the creative and add the correct Ad Slot size as normal. Paste the Adform tag in to the Creative Code field.
    • 30. Custom Ad Creative – Common Ad Type TraffickingStep Three: From the Rule Set pull down menu, choose the Adfrom Rule Set and then click on the Apply button.
    • 31. Custom Ad Creative – Common Ad Type TraffickingStep Four: DfP will show you a before and after Rule Set illustration. Click on the Accept button.
    • 32. Custom Ad Creative – Common Ad Type TraffickingStep Five: The code gets updated with the correct macro syntax. You can preview, test and save the creative as normal.

    • 34. Custom Ad Creative Common Themes Hints and Tips Familiarise yourself with the basic Creative Templates typically cater HTML output of Creative Templates, for publisher specific ad formats Rule Sets and 3rd Party tags. The Rule Sets typically cater for obscure same rules and similar syntax will and/or new 3rd Parties apply case to case, broadening your expertise and knowledge Macros still apply and are your friend Process friendly Img src, href, formatting and scripts Labour saving, error reducing Can lead you into other coding avenues

    • 37. • Most Common Faults • ALL errors are human – never forget this; never blame.General GuidanceDo:• Never panic » Broken Clickthru » Ad copy not being called• QA initial set-up » Under delivery• Upon error reporting, be as informed as possible. » Rich Media not working correctly » Ads breaking the page“This red ad I saw earlier on my site is broken” just » Ads appearing within wrong contentdoesn‟t help anyone » 3rd Parties• Request a screen grab if possible and a » Copy aesthetic e.g. Bad spelling, poor grammardescription of the problem in as much detail aspossible• Use diplomacy and project a service driven attitude• Involve others as necessary, including vendorTech Support, as quickly as possible• Remember and document the fixDon‟t:• Panic• Leave it until later• Second guess and assume it‟s not your problem• Forget to inform the stakeholders that the error isfixed• Be afraid to seek management help
    • 38. Troubleshooting WorkflowProcesses• Most errors are easily identified and fixed.• In critical situations, operate the „We have, we are,we will‟ method of Executive management updates. • This is a real email example from 15th October, 2009. A 3rd Party malware protecting vendor updated their White List incorrectly and thousands of users automatically received the update blocking Right Media ads. This was because the vendor mistakenly added the yieldmanager.com domain to their block list. SCENARIO: An internet firewall/security provider, AVG has released a new free upgrade version in the past 24/36 hours whose default settings block ads from Right Media, with virus warnings, truly malicious or not. This is a free product that plenty of people use at home, we have been receiving increasing complaints from Mail Online and Thisis users that thissoftware is blocking ads with the warning and on some settings displaying the message on the whole screen thus disrupting the user experience entirely. Alice at OTP has also noticed this complaint from users. WE HAVE: Determined the source and contributors/reasons to this issue. Contacted Right Media support with a detailed description of the problem. WE ARE: Deactivating Right Media lines as a precaution and security measure on the DM site and Northcliffe WE WILL: Await Right Media support response, continue to analyse the live issue to determine if it effects other vendor techs. So far though, this has been only noted against Yahoo Right Media. INTERNAL STAKEHOLDERSMyself, Shaun Perkinson, Amit Patel/Mark Hattersley, Gurman, Liam Fletcher.
    • 39. Adserver Side• Creative issues • DfA redirects not supplied as Inreds • clickTag not implemented • Redirects not clicking through, breaking • File sizes• Adserver latency • „Pserver‟ • 3rd Parties • User Interfaces and Beta DfP• Support procedures • DfP Help and Knowledge Base • Tech Support • Submitting a case • Internal resource• Ad specs • General • Doubleclick Studio
    • 40. Creative Issues - Most Common Faults, Features and Fixes• DfA redirects supplied not as Internal Redirects or Inreds » Occasionally an Agency will be lazy or misinformed (or both) and only supply the script and Iframe versions of their ad tags. It‟s very easy to disseminate from these the actual Internal Redirects they will have anyway. Don‟t bother requesting the Inreds, it‟s just not worth time or effort.

    • 41. Creative Issues - Most Common Faults, Features and Fixes• clickTag not implemented correctly » DfP is clever enough automatically spot this while trafficking the creative » It will also change the template code case sensitivity (clickTag  clickTAG) » As necessary, use ASV to confirm the issues » Variations of “root.clickTag” are all acceptable » If a Button Symbol is not present, or indeed anything „just doesn‟t look right‟, then query the functionality of the copy
    • 42. Creative Issues - Most Common Faults, Features and Fixes• Redirects not clicking through, or copy breaking, not showing, and copy issues, etc. » This can occur to any 3rd Party supplier, indeed whenever someone trafficks anything » Clickthru‟s not working: • Error in the URL address for the 3rd Party creative  3rd Party fix • Error in the of 3rd Party ad tags  Our fix, ensure copy and past was correctly done • Error in the call, e.g. Wrong size ads, broken images  3rd Party fix • Error on the destination page  Advertiser site issue, or an error in the clickthru, 3rd Party Fix • Error on input form ads upon clickthru  Form Method must be method=get – adservers do not support method=post » Copy not showing, or breaking or elements of copy, e.g. Video, not working • White space for copy  Likely to just require an AdEngine reload, or 3rd Party trafficking error • Disrupted copy elements  Creative fix, 3rd Party – we check creative trafficking • Video not streaming  Advanced. Could be „crossdomain policy‟ issues related to flash. Seek guidance (Neil Rigby, Shane Smith). » File sizes - Not much of an issue nowadays, but use discretion and common sense • “327k for a leaderboard is just fucking stupid.” • Video must be politely streamed • If in doubt, upload via FTP the copy and redirect (non 3rd Party ads only)
    • 43. Adserver Latency - Most Common Faults, Features and Fixes• „Pserver‟ » Adapted codebase of DfP JavaScript adtags used on all the Core Sites and Northcliffe „Thisis‟ portfolio • The old „bserver‟ method turned on its head (b  p, geddit?). Does not break Rich Media, is not an Iframe. • Ensures the ads get called after the main editorial content • Doubleclick is mostly reliable anyway, guaranteeing 99% up time in standard SLA‟s• 3rd Party Adservers » Under the same risk of downtime and causes for downtime as publisher adservers • If notified of downtime, or the error is reported internally and anecdotally, follow the Troubleshooting Workflow and Process • Ultimately, suspending the relevant campaigns is the most likely temporary outcome • We are not responsible as a business for these failures• User Interfaces and Beta DfP » Unscheduled downtime is very rare, but everyone is in the same boat if it does happen » Most often, not long term issues – minutes rather than hours » “All the cool kids use beta-dfp...” • Go to http://betadfp.doubleclick.net instead! • Incoming features and upgrades often here first • Experience can be better – speed, reliability
    • 44. Support Procedures• DfP Help and Knowledge Base » Simply, a very powerful tool using Google‟s search engine » Available from the Main Menu. Use it!• Various Tech Support and submitting a case » Reverse your needs... Provide as much detail as possible. • OID/ADID, scenario, cause and effect • Your theories for analysis, approval or rejection • Screen grabs • Discretionary escalation, peer-to-peer communication• Internal resources; experience and expertise » There‟s lot‟s of it! Starting with... You.

Website Side• Testing & Development • Workflow • Test pages and environments • Rich Media and it‟s approval process • Troubleshooting• Live Environments • Being reactive to issues • Potential breakages • Troubleshooting• New Sites and Content Addition • Creating new sites in DfP • Zones and key values • New ad formats
    • 46.
