Expandable ads

Publish your ad or HTML page

When you're happy with your ad or HTML page, you can publish it by clicking the publish button at the bottom of the stage.  When publishing, Google Web Designer adds the appropriate enabler code for AdMob and DoubleClick ads, and lets you choose from a set of options appropriate for the ad type.

Publishing for DoubleClick Studio

In the publish dialog:

  1. Set the name for the zip file or folder for the document and supporting files. By default Google Web Designer uses the same name you specified for the HTML file when you created the file.
  2. Choose the location where you want to save the file.  Either enter the path to the location where you want to save the file, or click the folder icon to navigate to an appropriate location.
  3. Choose from the following file choices:
    • Flatten files - brings all files into a single folder (selected automatically for ads).
    • Create zip - compresses files into a zip file for downloading.
    • Minify - compresses HTML markup.
    • Polite loading - loads only the initial load until the hosting page finishes loading. Then any additional assets are loaded. 
  4. Choose which CSS prefixes you want to include in the file. By default all are selected to provide the widest range of browser compatibility.
  5. Click Publish.

After you've created your ad, you can upload the zip file to DoubleClick studio. When you specified a that you were making a DoubleClick ad when you created your file, the ad will work in the Studio environment: the HTML5 enabler is already part of your ad, polite loading is enabled, and tracking is implemented.

Publishing for AdMob

In the publish dialog:

  1. Set the name for the zip file or folder for the document and supporting files. By default Google Web Designer uses the same name you specified for the HTML file when you created the file.
  2. Set your accout number for the Google Analytics account you are using to collect usage data.
  3. Choose the location where you want to save the file.  Either enter the path to the location where you want to save the file, or click the folder icon to navigate to an appropriate location.
