Use image ads in different sizes

This article describes the size and dimension specifications of image ads you can upload on the Google Display Network.

Image ads capture people’s attention across the Google Display Network’s 2 million websites and apps. Google Ads gives you several ways to create image ads – Ad Gallery templates, responsive ads, and uploading Display ads. You can upload custom image ads or use responsive ads.

Before you begin

Make sure that uploading custom image ads is the best choice for you. You also have the option to create image ads that fit just about anywhere across the Display Network with responsive ads. Even for advertisers who do use uploaded image ads, a best practice is to create additional responsive ads to cover sizes unavailable as uploaded image ads. Learn how to create a responsive ad

Bear in mind that you can run multiple kinds of ads, not just image ads, from the same Google Ads account and, in some cases, from the same campaign. Find out about different campaign types and available ad formats.

Instructions

Before creating your ad in Google Ads, you’ll need to prepare an image file that is sized and formatted appropriately. The specifications and dimensions are listed below. 

When uploading a .zip folder, the maximum number of files that can be included is 40. Learn how to create and upload an image ad.

  • Has a good history of policy compliance.
  • Has a good payment history.
  • Has more than £1000 total lifetime spend.

You’ll receive an email update when your request has been reviewed by the Google Ads team. In the meantime, you can use other options like uploaded image ads and responsive ads.

AMPHTML ads created in Google Web Designer

Dimensions/meta tags

The dimensions of all AMPHTML ads must be declared with a <meta> tag in the document <head>:

<meta name="ad.size" content="width=W,height=H">

The supported ad dimensions are the same as those for HTML5.

Primary asset zip bundle

You may upload a ZIP file containing a single HTML document (the "primary asset"), and up to 39 media assets. The total size of the compressed ZIP should not be more than 150KB (153600 B).

Primary asset rules All AMPHTML ads must adhere to the AMPHTML ad format rules. To validate your ads, use the public AMP validator.
URLs All URLs must correspond to assets in the bundle, except for the following three exceptions:
  • AMP runtime and custom elements
  • Custom fonts in the href of a <link rel="stylesheet"> element
  • Embedded data: URLs 

Relative paths must be relative to the primary asset path, mirroring the structure of the ZIP. Absolute paths are not allowed.

Supported AMP components
  • amp-accordion
  • amp-animation
  • amp-anim: Images must be relative references to assets in the ZIP bundle
  • amp-carousel
  • amp-fit-text
  • amp-font: CSS class names must not be used elsewhere in the document, for example the following would be forbidden:

<amp-font layout="nodisplay” font-family="My Font" timeout="1000" on-load-add-class="amp-font-class1"></amp-font> <div class="amp-font-class1"></div>

  • amp-gwd-animation
  • amp-img: Images must be relative references to assets in the ZIP bundle
  • amp-layout
Custom exits Custom exits, using either <amp-ad-exit> or <a href>, are not allowed. Your entire ad will be clickable.
Disallowed values Elements should not have any the following class names:
  • amp-carousel-slide
  • amp-carousel-button
  • amp-carousel-button-next
  • amp-carousel-button-prev

An event action cannot use "AMP" as the event target, as in the following, which is forbidden:

<button on="tap:AMP.navigateTo(url='http://google.com')">

   
Likewise, "tap" events are forbidden.

    <button on="tap:popup.toggleVisibility()">

All other HTML5 ads

HTML requirements HTML5 ads must include:
  • <!DOCTYPE html> declaration
  • <html> tag
  • <body>tag
  • Ad format size meta tag within the <head> tag. For example:
    <meta name="ad.size" content="width=300,height=250">

Explicit end tags (inline ending tags will not be accepted):

  • Example of valid end tags: <path></path>
  • Example of what not to do: <path> or <path />

Alternatively, you can extract the inline svg into a separate file.

Upload requirements All code and assets must be referenced using a relative path to resources included in the .ZIP file. No external references are allowed except references to:
 

When uploading a .zip folder, the maximum number of files included is 40.

Bear in mind

UTF-8 must be used for non-ASCII characters
