We are sure that your work with HilltopAds will become even more comfortable and efficient.
Premium CPM in Traffic Volumes statistics.
An amazing novelty on our platform is Premium CPM. This metric is the best combination of cost per thousand impressions and a high number of conversions.
Last year's update introduced the Recommended CPM — the best price to start. And there is also a minimum CPM — the minimum amount from which ads can be shown.
Choose the option that suits you best after setting all the campaign configurations in the last field, allowing you to run the campaign on the best current conditions.
The cost depends on your chosen geo, traffic source and other targeting options.
VAST/VPAID tag tester.
When creating a Video/VAST ad format campaign, choosing a VPAID Url video format you will see a new “Test your code” button.
This tester allows you to check how your ad will look in the player of our publishers.
Testing is possible in two ways. With the Tag selected, paste a link to your XML feed. If you choose Custom XML, you must copy and paste your VAST XML file. After that, click the "Load Ad" button.
Below, the video will start playing, and you will see what your ad will look like.
If there are any problems with the ad, for example, it is not shown, then the log console will indicate the reason for the error under the video. It will be possible to fix it immediately and ensure the ad is ok before launching the campaign.
New browsers in the targeting list.
You asked - we heard! Updated the list of browsers for targeting. The following ones are now available in browser targeting list:
- Google Seach App
- Net Cast
To evaluate the traffic of a particular browser, you can go to the “Estimation Tools” section. Here you can compare the performance of different browsers and operating systems.
New section: Trackers.
For your convenience, HilltopAds personal account has a new section that contains partner trackers with built-in integration, and a conversion transfer tester.
It is at your service to make it much faster and easier to set up conversions transfer.
Go to the “Trackers” section. In the “Setup tracking” tab choose the preferred tracker, click it and copy the postback link. Then you just need to paste the link into the required field in the personal account of your tracker, and it's done!
To make sure everything is going ok, you can go to the “Test Conversion” tab and check the results.
We try not to miss a single detail and make your work with HilltopAds as convenient and productive as possible. Good luck!
