What’s new in DoubleClick for Publishers

Thursday, October 20, 2011 |
We’re always adding new features to DoubleClick for Publishers (DFP). We’ll be periodically posting lists of the highlights to this blog to help you stay up-to-date with all of the latest DFP developments. The list below contains some highlights. For a more complete list, please visit the DFP or DFP Small Business Help Centers.

Available in DFP and DFP Small Business:
  • Targeting presets: If you frequently traffic your campaigns using the same set of targeting criteria, entering the same targeting criteria across multiple campaigns can become a repetitive process. To help make this process quicker and more efficient for publishers, we’ve introduced the ability to save a set of targeting criteria to reuse across your other campaigns and availability forecasts.

  • Sequential creative rotation: Sometimes advertisers want to display a set of creatives to the user in sequence in the same ad unit. This is called storyboarding and it allows the advertiser to control a user’s experience of an ad campaign across multiple views. Now you can "storyboard" a series of creatives by serving them sequentially to a user as they click through your site. Learn more.
  • Mobile Reporting Filters: To help make it easier to identify ad impressions delivered to your mobile web content or applications, you can now easily filter your reports to see only “web” or “mobile” line items.
Available in DFP:
  • Line item grace periods: Imagine you’re working with one of your most valued advertisers and you want to ensure their campaign delivers in full, even if this means extending the campaign beyond its original flight date. You can now indicate a line item grace period in order to allow critical line items to deliver after they’ve passed their end date in order to meet their goals. Learn more.
