About Ad Manager companies

Define your advertiser, agency, and other partners

A company in Ad Manager is an advertiser, agency, or other party who you can associate with a campaign. Depending on the type of company, they might be used to negotiate a campaign, represent the ads you serve, or share your inventory and revenue. Some company associations are used to prevent competing advertisers from serving to the same page at the same time.
