Set up roadblocks - Google Ad Manager Help [gg-admanager-en]

Roadblock creatives

Set up roadblocks

Any line item with creatives can be made a roadblock line item with the Display creatives setting. If the order in which creatives appear is not important, follow the steps below; otherwise define a master/companion creative set.

  1. Navigate to the "Adjust delivery" section in the Settings tab of a new or existing line item.
  2. For the Display creatives setting, choose As many as possible or All.
  3. Click Save.

Roadblock creative display settings


All delivers the line item only when there is available space to display all of the line item's creatives together on the page.

Guaranteed roadblocks need to be enabled for each network by an administrator:

  • In Ad Manager, click Admin and then Global settings and then Features.
  • Click the toggle to enable or disable Guaranteed roadblocks (GPT SRA only).

As many as possible

As many as possible delivers as many of the line item's creatives together as possible, but makes no guarantee that more than one creative will be served to a page. For example, if a page has only one ad slot, the result could be a single creative from the line item being displayed by itself.

Ad Exchange line items do not compete against line items with "As many as possible" delivery.

Tagging considerations

While any Google Publisher Tag mode and tag type is compatible with roadblock line items, below are some tips to ensure your tags are set up for optimal roadblock performance.

  • Understand sequential ad request processing
    The ad server always processes ad requests from a webpage or mobile app sequentially, in the order in which the requests are received. Even with single request architecture (SRA), the sequence for ad request processing is defined by the order of the googletag.defineSlot() functions in your tagging code.

    One of the roadblock creatives must fill the first ad slot that matches the line item targeting. If a previously-defined ad slot matches the line item targeting, but another higher-priority line item serves, the entire roadblock will not be delivered.

  • Asynchronous and synchronous rendering options do not affect roadblock delivery
    While these rendering styles can affect how creatives are displayed, they do not affect which line items are selected by the ad server.
  • Single request architecture is required for guaranteed roadblocks
    SRA informs the ad server of all ad slots at the initial request, so Ad Manager can ensure that an entire roadblock is returned if you selected the "All" option for the "Display creatives" line item setting. If SRA is not implemented in your tags, line items with this setting are treated as if they were set to deliver "As many as possible" and are not guaranteed.
  • Multiple ad slots of the same size require their own creative
    Each creative in a line item can only serve once on a page, so a separate creative needs to be uploaded in Ad Manager for each roadblock ad slot. For example, if you have two 300x250 ad slots on your page, you need to upload two 300x250 creatives because a single 300x250 creative cannot serve to both ad slots.
  • Companions earn priority over other line items
    Once a roadblock line item delivers to an ad slot, the remaining roadblock creatives are given priority over other line items, even those with a higher priority value than the roadblock line item, for all subsequent matching ad slots on the page.

Impression counting for roadblocks

For these roadblock line items, you need to book impressions for each creative in the line item separately as an impression will be counted each time a creative serves to a page's ad slot.


If your line item has three creatives but does not use a master/companion creative set and you want to serve the line item 1,000 times, enter 3,000 impressions as the line item quantity because Ad Manager counts three impressions each time the roadblock delivers.

If the line item in this example uses a master/companion creative set, enter a line item quantity of 1,000 impressions because the master creative impression is only counted as a single impression toward the impression goal. For roadblocks with the "As many as possible" setting, the number of impressions can vary each time the line item delivers, depending on the number of creatives that serve together.

Unapplied adjustments and payments - Authorized Buyers Help [gg-authorizedbuyers-en]

Unapplied adjustments and payments

Learn about unapplied adjustments, payments and lost payments

Sometimes payments or adjustments need to be applied to your account, but can't be. This can happen if there isn't enough information telling us where the payment or adjustment should be applied, or if the payment is lost.

Whenever there's an unapplied payment or adjustment in your account, you'll see an alert next to the "Amount due" column, which appears in the "Invoices" and "Transaction history" sections. If your payment is lost, contact the collections team listed on your monthly invoice.

Unapplied adjustments

If you have unapplied adjustments, such as credits that haven't yet been applied to an invoice, you have two options for applying these credits:

  • Underpay your next invoice by the amount of the unapplied adjustment. For example, if you have $53 in unapplied adjustments and an open invoice for $200. Make a payment for $147 ($200 - $53), and we'll close out the invoice. Just be sure to underpay by the exact amount, or we won't know to apply the credit.
  • Contact your account team and let them know how you'd like the unapplied adjustments attributed. You can request, for instance, that your payment be divided in half and applied to two open invoices.

Unapplied payments

If you have an unapplied payment in your account or you think your check or wire payment is lost, you can email your local collections team, and tell them how you'd like the payment applied to your account. For example, you can ask that the payment be split among more than one invoice. Just be sure to include the invoice numbers and amounts we should apply to each.

Lost payments

If your payment is lost, you can provide a proof of payment to your account team to show that the payment was made. When contacting your account team, please attach a proof of payment to your email. This can be a scanned image or screenshot of your bank transfer receipt, your bank or credit card statement, or your online bank or credit card account.

Your proof of payment should also include the following information:

  • The date the payment was made. If possible, show all transactions for five days before and after the payment.
  • The amount and currency of the payment.
  • The beneficiary of the funds, such as Google Ads.
  • The name of the remitting bank.

Also, for security reasons, please black-out any sensitive information on your bank or credit card statement, particularly your entire bank account number or the middle eight digits of your credit card number.

Top reasons for account closure - Google Ad Manager Help [gg-admanager-en]

Top reasons for account closure

To help you understand the possible reasons that publishers may have their accounts disabled, we've outlined the most common reasons that accounts are disabled for invalid activity or policy violations below. We hope this information helps you to better understand our policies, and ensure that your sites and account remain compliant with our policies.

We understand that you would like to have more information about ways to help ensure that you're following our guidelines. Note that this is not a complete list, but the top causes. For more information, please see the Google Ad Manager Partner Guidelines.

We want to maintain a strong ecosystem for both advertisers and publishers. As a publisher, you are responsible for maintaining high quality inventory and traffic. If the traffic we are receiving from a publisher is violating policies and/or invalid, then the publisher is no longer eligible to participate in the Ad Exchange or other publisher products. This kind of traffic is damaging to our advertisers, as well as legitimate publishers, as it can reduce advertisers' trust in the rest of the network.

Common reasons for disabled Ad Exchange accounts

Generating or receiving automated or bot traffic
  • Artificial impressions and clicks that are generated through automated means such as a bot or deceptive software, are prohibited. Automated traffic can be generated by a publisher, or can be received through purchased traffic. It's important to review traffic sources before you decide to work with a traffic source. Also, be aware of programs that check links within your site, as they may click on ad links as well.
Using an incentivized traffic source
  • Publishers should not use third-party services that generate clicks or impressions such as paid-to-click, paid-to-surf, autosurf and click-exchange programs.
Manipulating how ads are served
Encouraging users to support your site through ad interaction
  • Publishers may not ask others to refresh or click their ads. This includes asking for users to support your site, offering rewards to users for viewing ads or performing searches and promising to raise money for third parties for such behavior.
Ad placement deceptive for users or generating accidental clicks
  • Publishers are not permitted to encourage users to click on Google ads in any way. This includes implementing the ads in a way that they might be mistaken for other website content, such as menu, navigation, or download links, modifying the ad size to be nonstandard and invisible or hard to see for the user, or being placed too close to elements on the page that require heavy mouse interaction. Please review these applicable ad placement guidelines for implementations considered deceptive.

Account suspension for invalid activity or a policy violation - Google Ad Manager Help [gg-admanager-en]

Account suspension for invalid activity or a policy violation

Why was my account suspended? Can you tell me more?

Google treats invalid click activity and Google Ad Manager Partner Guidelines violations very seriously. We analyze all clicks and impressions to determine whether they fit a pattern of use that might artificially drive up an advertiser's costs or a publisher's revenue. We also proactively review sites for policy violations. If we determine that an Ad Exchange account poses a risk to our ecosystem of publishers and advertisers, we may either disable or suspend that account and refund all account revenue along with Google's revenue share to impacted advertisers.

Account suspension gives publishers time to investigate the source of the invalid activity or policy violation and take the necessary corrective action before the account is disabled. At the time of suspension, you will receive a notification with details about the suspension reason. If your account is suspended, you'll still be able to log in to your Ad Exchange account; however, no ads will be served during this period. After 30 days of account suspension, we'll re-enable your account. Once your account starts receiving traffic again, we'll review your account in another 30 days to verify that the invalid activity and policy violations have ceased.

Please know that if the problems persist, we will need to take further action such as permanently disabling your account to protect our advertising ecosystem.

We understand that you may want to know more about how we detect invalid activity. Because this information could be used to circumvent our proprietary detection system, we're unable to provide our publishers with information about specific account activity, including any web pages, users, or third-party services that may be involved. To help you identify the source of the problem, we've put together a list of our top reasons for account closure.

Be aware that this is not an exhaustive list. However, many publishers have been able to identify their core issue using this list, so please read through it carefully.

Lastly, we recommend learning how to segment your traffic, to help you best understand, monitor and evaluate the traffic to your site. This may also help you identify sources of invalid activity.

Segment inventory by channel - Google Ad Manager Help [gg-admanager-en]

Segment inventory by channel

Segmenting traffic is the process of setting up your ad units and custom channels so that you can explicitly see your different traffic sources. To help you understand your traffic via segmentation, we've set out the steps you'll need to take. Whether you're new to the Ad Exchange world, or you're a long time publisher, these insights are highly beneficial. To get started, you'll need to have access to an analytics tool (like Google Analytics), as well as a broad understanding of what channels can do for you in your Ad Exchange account. Setting up granular traffic segmentation will allow you, at any given time, to see what your traffic sources are and how they are performing in respect to one another. There are two major benefits to having this additional data for your Ad Exchange account:

  • Better understanding of your traffic sources and users
    • You'll be able to see and understand which traffic sources are driving the best ad performance for your site.
    • Using this data, you can determine how users are reaching your site, and whether you can optimize your traffic sources.
  • Prevention against invalid activity
    • Proactively monitor how your traffic sources are performing so that you can make educated decisions and stop working with sources that appear to be sending bad traffic.
    • Identify anomalies in the data to understand how different sources are performing, and what actions you should take to ensure that you're staying compliant with the Ad Exchange program policies.

We recommend a two-step approach. You'll need to use an analytics tool, custom channels, and URL channels. It's important to perform both steps to make sure that you have the complete picture of your traffic sources and site performance.

If Face ID isn't working on your iPhone or iPad Pro - Apple Support

If Face ID isn't working on your iPhone or iPad Pro

If you need help using Face ID to unlock your iPhone or iPad, authenticate purchases, sign in to apps, or if you're asked to enter your passcode, learn what to do.

Make sure that your iPhone or iPad model supports Face ID. Then follow these steps. After each step, see if you still need help.

Check for updates

Make sure that your iPhone or iPad is updated to the latest version of iOS.


Check your Face ID settings

To check your Face ID settings, go to Settings > Face ID & Passcode. Make sure that Face ID is set up and that the features you're trying to use Face ID with are turned on.
Face ID settings

Check that nothing is covering the TrueDepth camera

Make sure that the TrueDepth camera on your iPhone or iPad isn't covered with a case or a screen protector. Also, check if there's residue or dirt covering the TrueDepth camera.

If you're using an iPad in landscape orientation, make sure that your finger or palm isn't covering the TrueDepth camera. If it is, you might see an alert at the top of the screen that says "Camera covered" with an arrow pointing at the TrueDepth camera.

TrueDepth camera

Make sure that nothing is covering your face

Make sure that your eyes, nose, and mouth are fully visible to the TrueDepth camera. Face ID doesn't work if anything is covering your mouth and nose, like a face mask. If you're wearing a face mask, you'll be asked to enter your passcode automatically after swiping up.

Face ID works with many sunglasses. If you're wearing sunglasses designed to block certain types of light, then your sunglasses might be blocking the infrared light used by the TrueDepth camera. Try using Face ID without your sunglasses.


Make sure that you're facing the TrueDepth camera

Face ID works on iPhone only when it's in portrait orientation and you're facing the TrueDepth camera. On iPad, you can use Face ID when your iPad is in any orientation.

The TrueDepth camera has a similar range of view as when you take a selfie or make a FaceTime call. Whether your iPhone or iPad is lying on a surface or you're holding it in a natural position, make sure that your iPhone or iPad is an arm's length or closer (10-20 inches) from your face.


Restart your device

Restart your iPhone or iPad and enter your passcode. Then try using Face ID again.


Add an alternate appearance

For most users, Face ID will continuously learn as they change. If you have an appearance that can look vastly different, you can set up an alternate appearance so Face ID still recognizes you. You can't create a new appearance if you're wearing a face mask.

To set up an alternate appearance:

  1. Go to Settings > Face ID & Passcode. If asked, enter your passcode.
  2. Tap Set Up an Alternate Appearance.
  3. Look straight into your iPhone or iPad and place your face inside the frame.
  4. Gently move your head to complete the circle. If you're unable to move your head, tap Accessibility Options.
  5. When you finish the first Face ID scan, tap Continue.
  6. Gently move your head to complete the circle for a second time.
  7. When Face ID setup is complete, tap Done.

Reset Face ID

If you still need help, reset Face ID, then set it up again. Go to Settings > Face ID & Passcode and tap Reset Face ID. Then tap Set up Face ID to set it up again.

If you can't enroll your face, take your device to an Apple Retail Store or Apple Authorized Service Provider or contact Apple Support.


If you need to enter your passcode

You might need to enter your passcode or Apple ID instead of using Face ID in these situations:

  • You're wearing a face mask.
  • The device has just been turned on or restarted.
  • The device hasn't been unlocked for more than 48 hours.
  • The passcode hasn't been used to unlock the device in the last six and a half days and Face ID hasn't unlocked the device in the last 4 hours.
  • The device has received a remote lock command.
  • After five unsuccessful attempts to match a face.
  • After initiating power off/Emergency SOS by pressing and holding either volume button and the side button simultaneously for 2 seconds.

IPv6 - Google Fiber Help [gg-fiber-en]


The Internet Protocol (IP) is the language that computers use to communicate with each other on the Internet; it works much like phone numbers, which let us connect one telephone to another.

Internet Protocol version 6 (IPv6) is the new version of the Internet Protocol. The addresses used by the current version of the Internet Protocol, IPv4, are nearly all used. At Google, we believe that IPv6 is essential to the continued health and openness of the Internet – and that by allowing all devices to talk to each other directly, the launch of IPv6 will enable future innovation and growth for the Internet.

How to use the Photos Repair Library on your Mac - Apple Support

How to use the Photos Repair Library on your Mac

If your Photos Library won't open or if the Photos app behaves unexpectedly on your Mac, the Photos Repair Library tool might help.

To get to the Photos Repair Library tool on your Mac, follow these steps: 

  1. If Photos is open, close the app. Then, while you click to open Photos, hold down the Command and Option keys at the same time.
  2. In the window that opens, click Repair to start the repair process. You might be asked to enter your user account password.

The Repair Library tool analyzes the library's database and repairs any inconsistencies it detects. Depending on the size of your library, the repairs might take some time. When the process is done, Photos opens the library.

If you repair a library that's used with iCloud Photos, iCloud checks the library after the repair process completes to ensure everything is synced correctly.

If these steps still don't work, or you can't open the repair tool, contact Apple Support.

How to use dynamic exit URLs - Studio Help [gg-richmedia-en]

Rich media developer's guide

How to use dynamic exit URLs


Use an exit URL from an external data source (such as Google Sheets, an XML feed, or Google Merchant Center) instead of entering it in Studio, Campaign Manager 360 or Google Ad Manager. 


The Enabler.exitOverride(id, url) method from the Studio HTML5 SDK overrides any exit URL entered in Studio, Campaign Manager 360, or Ad Manager.


Set up a string variable, exitURL, to hold the destination URL in your creative. The URL can be passed in dynamically through XML, sourced from a dynamic feed, or hard-coded.

Use an exit URL from a dynamic feed in Google Web Designer

  1. In the Dynamic panel, click + to add dynamic bindings.
  2. On the Bindings tab of the Dynamic Properties dialog, click Add Binding.
  3. For the element, select the ID of the Tap Area.
  4. For the element attribute, select Exit override URL.
  5. For the data schema object, select the object from your feed that represents the dynamic URL (e.g., Product.0.url).

Dynamic Exits in Studio - Google Web Designer

Use an exit URL from a dynamic feed in JavaScript

// Replace the dynamicContent value below with your own dynamic element value.
var exitURL = dynamicContent.Feed_1[0].ExitURL.Url;

function exitClickHandler() {
  Enabler.exitOverride("exit name goes here", exitURL);

exitButton.addEventListener('click', exitClickHandler, false);

Use a hard-coded exit URL in JavaScript

Only use a hard-coded exit URL when you know the URL will not need to be changed later. If you do need to change it, you'll have to update the creative code and resubmit the creative for trafficking. 

// productId is a value calculated elsewhere in the code, and
// is not shown in this example.
var exitURL = "" + productId;

function exitClickHandler() {
  Enabler.exitOverride("exit name goes here", exitURL);

exitButton.addEventListener('click', exitClickHandler, false);


Add values or parameters to dynamic exit URLs

Add third-party tracking to dynamic exit URLs with an additional method in your creative's JavaScript code to retrieve parameters set in Campaign Manager 360. Use the Enabler.getParameter method to get the landing page suffix value (stored in the exit_suffix macro) and append it to exit URLs from an associated dynamic feed.

Step 1: Add code to your creative

Using one of the options below, add code to your creative to combine the dynamic exit URL with the suffix from Campaign Manager 360.

Combine the dynamic exit URL and suffix in Google Web Designer

  1. Click the Tap Area where you want to apply the dynamic exit and suffix to.
  2. Add a new event (click the "+" button on the events panel).
  3. Select Tap Area > Touch/Click on the Event step.
  4. On the Action step, select Custom > Add custom action Add custom action
  5. Add a function name, then paste the following custom code in the text area. Replace the example exit URL with your own exit URL.
  6. Click OK.
  // Replace '' with your own exit URL.  var exitURL = '';  var urlSuffix = Enabler.getParameter('exit_suffix');   var symbol = (exitURL.indexOf('?') > -1) ? '&': '?';   if (urlSuffix) {     while (urlSuffix.charAt(0) == '?' || urlSuffix.charAt(0) == '&') {       urlSuffix = urlSuffix.substring(1);     }     if (urlSuffix.indexOf('?') > -1) {       urlSuffix = urlSuffix.replace(/\?/g, '&');     }   }   exitURL = exitURL + symbol + urlSuffix;  

Enabler.exitOverride('exit', exitURL);

Custom code to add a dynamic exit suffix
Combine the dynamic exit URL and suffix using JavaScript in any HTML editor

If you use an HTML editor other than Google Web Designer, use a JavaScript method like the one below to get the exit suffix from Campaign Manager 360. Before you can call this function, you need to load and initialize the Enabler.

  function addSuffix(url, dcmParameter) {     var urlSuffix = Enabler.getParameter(dcmParameter);     var _url = '';       if (url) {       var symbol = (url.indexOf('?') > -1) ? '&': '?';       if(urlSuffix) {         while (urlSuffix.charAt(0) == '?' || urlSuffix.charAt(0) == '&') {           urlSuffix = urlSuffix.substring(1);         }         if (urlSuffix.indexOf('?') > -1) {           urlSuffix = urlSuffix.replace(/\?/g, '&');         }       }       _url = url + symbol + urlSuffix;     }     return _url;   }     // Example of how you would use this function:  exitUrl = addSuffix(exitUrl, 'exit_suffix');   

Step 2: Add the URL parameters in Campaign Manager 360

After adding your creative to Campaign Manager 360, enter the query parameters that will be appended to your exit URL by adding a landing page suffix.

Choose where to add the suffix based on where it should be applied:

  • All landing pages in all campaigns: Add the suffix in advertiser properties.
  • All landing pages in a campaign: Add the suffix in campaign properties.
  • All creatives assigned to an ad: Add the suffix in ad properties.

Set the suffix at the highest level to apply it across more creatives. You can override the suffix by setting it at a more specific, lower level. For example, if you set a suffix in your advertiser properties, any suffixes set in the campaign or ad properties will override the advertiser-level suffix.

Add a landing page suffix

  1. Open the ad, campaign, or advertiser properties, and click Landing page URL suffix
  2. Enter your full suffix in the text box. 

    Suffixes can include multiple query parameters, but must be 128 characters or less. If the field is locked (), click the lock to unlock it. Locked fields inherit from the parent by default: a locked campaign field inherits from the advertiser settings; a locked ad field inherits from the campaign settings.
  3. Campaign Manager 360 identifies any key-value pairs in the suffix and allows you to edit them below the field as query parameters. You can choose macros or enter custom strings. To remove a key-value pair, click remove remove.
