Advertiser identity verification
To increase transparency for users, advertisers will be required to complete an identity verification program. Based on this information, Google will generate a disclosure on any ads you run, displaying your name and country. As part of our phased rollout, certain advertisers may be selected to complete this verification the week of August 28. Because Display & Video 360 adheres to Google Ads policy, you can learn more about this update in the Google Ads Help Center.
Create Custom Bidding scripts using Google Analytics goals
You’ll soon be able to use goals from a linked Google Analytics account to build Custom Bidding scripts. By using a goal with Custom Bidding, you’ll be able to optimize towards metrics from your goal to represent specific user journeys on your site. Before you get started, you’ll need to link your Google Analytics account to your Display & Video 360 advertiser.
Limit attribution models based on viewable impressions
You’ll soon be able to fine tune your Floodlight group attribution models to remove view-through conversions attributed to non-viewable impressions. The attribution model settings will include a new setting that lets you indicate if the model should only look at viewable eligible impressions for attribution. There will also be a setting for the behavior for ineligible impressions.
