Content targeting overview
DFP Video enables content owners and publishers to monetize their video content more broadly. You can target ads not only to ad units on a webpage, but also to specific video content.
- Target ads for running shoes to specific sports videos.
- Target ads for hotels to specific travel videos, only when those videos appear on a particular website.
- Target ads for kitchen appliances to all videos with the category "cooking."
How it works:
- In DFP, connect to a content source and ingest the metadata for the video content.
- Map the way videos were categorized in the content source to the way you want to categorize them for ad targeting.
- Target line items to specific videos or content metadata (such as a "sports" or "entertainment" category) along with all other standard targeting options.
