Campaign Manager ID filtering

Dynamic creatives can use Campaign Manager attributes to dynamically update ads based on the specifics of each impression, allowing advertisers to tailor each impression to match their media buy. For example, an ad can display different content depending on which site the ad is served. 

This means increased relevancy on every impression, with custom content based on an impression's Campaign Manager attributes. Using an integrated platform for ad serving and content management, advertisers can dynamically update a creative's images, text, videos, and more and align these elements with their media buy to build the most effective and relevant ad.

Campaign Manager ID filtered dynamic creatives can use any of the following Campaign Manager attributes:

  • Ad ID
  • Advertiser ID
  • Placement ID
  • Site ID
  • Campaign ID
  • Creative ID
  • Keyword
To save time and avoid errors, use dynamic targeting keys to create friendly names for Campaign Manager attributes. Learn more about dynamic targeting keys (Campaign Manager sign-in required)
Feed setup

Start with a feed template Refer to this sample feed structure as a starting point. You can browse additional Campaign Manager ID feed templates in the template gallery.

Fill out the feed Follow these general feed instructions to begin populating the feed.

Add the Campaign Manager ID filtering column After following the general feed instructions, make sure to add a column for Campaign Manager ID filtering (e.g. Placement_ID, Site_ID, etc.). Enter the Campaign Manager ID value for which this row of content is targeted. Campaign Manager ID values must be numerical strings (for IDs) or text (for keywords). To target the content to multiple Campaign Manager IDs, enter comma-separated values. For example, if targeting multiple placement IDs, enter 90368508,90368520,90368519.

Every row of a filtering column should have a value. If you leave a row blank, it will be considered a match for all IDs. This means if multiple rows are selected based on the filtering you set up, all blank rows will also be selected for rotation, along with the rows that match the targeted IDs.

To assign the correct content to the correct Campaign Manager ID, you'll need a clear picture of how the campaign is set up in Campaign Manager, and which creative content should be used for each Campaign Manager ID.

If you want to use the same feed row for multiple IDs, separate the ID values with a comma.
