Create an advertiser

An advertiser in DoubleClick Search is linked to an advertiser in DoubleClick Campaign Manager (DCM). If you do not have an existing advertiser in your DCM account, you will need to create one. Note that a single DCM advertiser can only be linked to one DS advertiser. Learn more about the one-to-one relationship between DoubleClick Search and DCM.

Follow the steps below to create a new advertiser in DCM and DoubleClick Search:
