Uploading VAST Audio or Video

  1. On the My Ads screen, click New Ad and select VAST Audio or VAST Video.

  2. On the New VAST dialog, give the ad a Name.

  3. Enter the VAST XML File URL.

  4. If the VAST is secure, select Ad is safe to serve to secure inventory. It is highly recommended that you use secure ads, as they are required by the majority of supply.

  5. Optional: select a VPAID version. If your ad uses VPAID you must select the appropriate VPAID version here.

  6. Optional: Edit the Brand Domain if the default domain does not apply to this ad. Do not include a protocol (https://) or landing page.

    Example: abc.com

    The brand domain cannot be edited after you have created the ad. See Brand Domains and Categories for details. 

  7. Edit the Brand Categories if the default categories do not apply to the ad. These categories cannot be changed after you have created the ad. See Brand Domains and Categories for details. 

  8. Optional: Choose a Vendor on the Vendor Declaration tab. Google requires certain ad serving vendors/technologies to be declared for ads to run on Google Ad Manager. If you're not using any of the vendors on the list, you don't need to make a declaration.

  9. Additional Tracking URLs: If you wish to add any additional tracker URLs on events (e.g. impression, first quartile, etc.), you may do so here.
  10. Click Create Ad.
