Image Web Ads Guide

What are Image Web Ads

Image ads are the most common type of display ad. They consist of a single file, minimal animation, and one landing page. Image ads have a background graphic, a business logo, and a call-to-action. We recommend these as an essential part of every campaign.

How do I troubleshoot my Image Web Ads

There are a couple of items that you can check if you are having issues with your image web ads:

  • Make sure that your logo is on the creative image.
  • The landing page must include a link to the homepage and/or site privacy policy.
  • The destination URL should not redirect to a different website or redirect to a video, for example, a video on Dailymotion or NBS.com.
  • GIF Ads cannot loop endlessly or be longer than 30 seconds.
  • Review our Advertising Policies Guidelines to learn how you can make sure your ads and site are compliant.
