Publish to Google Drive

When you're happy with your ad or HTML page, you can publish it to Google Drive by clicking the arrow on the Publish button  in the view bar at the top of the window, then selecting Google Drive. When publishing, Google Web Designer adds the appropriate enabler code for AdWords and DoubleClick ads, and lets you choose from a set of options appropriate for the ad type.

Publishing to Google Drive for the first time?

The first time that you publish to Google Drive, you will be prompted to sign in to your Google Account.

  1. Enter the email address for the account you want to use, then click Next.
  2. On the next page, enter your password, then click Next.
  3. On the next page, click Allow to let Google Web Designer:
    • View the files in your Google Drive
    • View and manage Google Drive files and folders that you have opened or created with Google Web Designer

Publish to Google Drive

Before you publish an ad, you can verify in the Summary section of the publish dialog that your ad passes all validation checks.

In the publish dialog:

  1. Specify 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. Select or deselect publishing options. Some options may be unavailable for your document type.
    • Inline local files - Places all the JavaScript and CSS within the HTML.
    • Minify - Compresses HTML markup.
    • Polite Loading - Delays the loading of creative assets until the hosting page finishes its initial load.
    • Groups Unpacking - Upacks groups so they don’t have to be unpacked during runtime when the creative is loaded.
    • Add Border - Lets you add a border and pick a border color for the ad.
  4. Select 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.
