Spam Filtering and fraud detection
Proactive filtering in Display & Video 360 and Campaign Manager protects advertising budgets from fraudulent impressions. Learn about spam filtering.

Content labels and classifiers
View the geographic location of where ads are served and also choose to serve / not serve ads to specific locations. Geographic targeting verification allows you to view how many impressions in your campaign fell outside of your desired geographic targeting range (either by percentage or by total number). Click on a cell to view the data as a pie chart, broken down by geographic location. You can verify geographic targeting data at the country, state/region, or DMA® Region level.
Create custom alerts, reporting, content classifiers, and blacklists. Learn about Verification settings.
Mobile app view
See a breakdown specific to mobile app impressions, with information about content labels, platforms (iOS or Android), and app ratings (in the Google Play Store or Apple App Store).
Verification is integrated with Campaign Manager and data refreshes once daily. The time of the most recent update is displayed on the upper-right-hand corner of the page.
