AMP Format Integration

ūüí°

This document describes how to set up your AMP pages to be able to deliver Picnic's formats. Picnic's formats deliver as a 320x480 & 320x400 standard HTML creatives and the only requirement is you must have an ad unit which supports these sizes. This guide shows one way of making your ad units compatible however you might have other methods which better suit your stack.

Ad Unit Set Up

AMP Set Up

1. SETUP THE AD UNIT IN DFP

  • Within¬†DFP¬†> Inventory > Ad Units, edit an¬†existing ad unit.
  • For Sizes, select Fixed Size and enter 320x480 & 320x400* as well as any other ad sizes you¬†choose.
  • *It is possible for the smaller, 320x400 creatives (Posts & Carousel) to serve out of a 320x480. Speak to your Picnic Account Manager for more detail.

    ‚¨ÜÔłŹ

    Example: Add 300x250 as a secondary size to ensure you maintain your existing MPU demand.

  • Enter all other settings as per your preferences, then click¬†Save

2. GENERATE THE TAG

  • Click Generate Tags
  • Select Tag Type > Accelerated Mobile¬†Pages
  • Multi Size Validation > Uncheck (this allows you to have a secondary size e.g. 300x250 which is less than 2/3rds of primary size¬†320x480)
  • All other tag settings as per your existing¬†standards
  • A tag will be¬†generated
Example tag:
    <amp-ad width=320 height=480
        type="doubleclick"
        data-slot="/1234567/slot"
        data-multi-size="320x400,300x250"
        data-multi-size-validation="false"
        data-loading-strategy="prefer-viewability-over-views">
    </amp-ad>
