AdSense for video (AFV)

Get the code for a video tag for AdSense for video

You can use the AdSense for video tag generator to quickly and easily create video ad tags for your videos.

Note that you can manually override all values in the tag that you generate. For more information, see AdSense for video tag parameters for IMA3.
  1. Sign in to your AdSense account.
  2. Click Ads for Video.
  3. On the "Get code" page, enter a description URL for the video tag, such as http://www.simplevideoad.com/golf.html.
  4. Select whether your video ad type is a "Standard instream" or a "Skippable" ad.

    You can assign a maximum duration to the ad type you selected.

  5. Decide on the overlay type. You can select from "Text" and/or "Image".
  6. (Optional) Choose whether you want to track your tag with a custom channel.
  7. Identify whether your video position is "Pre-roll", "Mid-roll", or "Post-roll".

    When you select the mid-roll video position, you can specify a value in seconds.

  8. Decide on the user language of the video ad. You can choose from any of the AdSense supported languages.
  9. Select the video ad technology:
    • Direct SDK: If your ad setup is integrated with the Google IMA SDK.
    • IMA Adapter: If your ad setup is compliant with VAST and VPAID 2 JS standards.
  10. Copy and paste the generated code into your video (make sure that it complies with the AdSense for video policies).
