Third-party measurement implementation request

 

If you're using pixels from comScore, Nielsen, Kantar, or Dynata, we encourage you to use the Third-Party Viewability, Brand Safety, Brand Lift, and Reach Implementation Template to request Ads Data Hub (ADH) enablement (with your vendor_client_id included). Please reach out to your measurement vendor for guidance.

The following vendors are certified for measurement on YouTube:

  • comScore
  • DoubleVerify
  • Dynata
  • IAS
  • Kantar
  • MOAT
  • Nielsen
  • Google (including Google Marketing Platform)

Display & Video 360 does not accept third-party ad tracking pixels that are not from one of these vendors or that make unapproved fourth-party calls to other vendors.

 

Please provide as much detail as possible so that our team can process this request without additional correspondence. We aim to implement all requests within 24 hours as long as the original request includes a completed template with properly formatted pixels.

All requests must be submitted using the following templates:

For third-party pixel implementation: 

  • Tracking pixels are supported for impression, view, and skip events for TrueView in-stream ads. For bumper and non-skippable ads, tracking pixels are supported for impression events. 
  • Up to 3 tracking pixels (which may redirect up to 3 times each) are accepted per event.
  • JavaScript is not allowed.
  • All tracking pixels and any fourth-party calls made within the pixels from daisy-chaining must be SSL-compliant.
  • Click trackers are not included in this implementation process and should be added to your ads before submitting a request. 

For third-party viewability, brand safety, brand lift, and reach measurement implementation:

  • Third-party measurement is only available for TrueView in-stream, bumper, and non-skippable ads if you have a contract with one of the following approved partners and have discussed your implementation with your Google Marketing Platform representative. 
    • Viewability measurement: Integral Ad Science, DoubleVerify, and MOAT
    • Brand safety measurement: Integral Ad Science and DoubleVerify
    • Brand lift measurement: Dynata and Kantar
    • Reach measurement: Nielsen and Comscore
  • There are two steps to implementing viewability, brand safety, brand lift and reach measurement:
    • Provide us with the line item IDs where you want third-party measurement. 
    • Once you've received confirmation that we've enabled these line items for third-party measurement, give your third-party measurement provider your line item IDs, insertion order IDs, and advertiser name so they can complete the implementation process. 
You must submit individual requests for each advertiser you want to have third-party measurement. For example, if you need to request this measurement for 3 advertisers, you'd submit this form 3 times with 3 separate templates per advertiser.
