We all know that premium ads are those inventories that are sold directly to buyers or advertisers. So what happens to those inventories that were not sold? This is where remnant ads come in.
Remnant ads are the ads that were not sold directly to buyers, but don’t fret — your remnant ads won’t go to waste, they only have to undergo a bidding process where they are sold at a cheaper rate than premium inventories.
Here are some tips on how to monetize your remnant inventories:
1) Sign up for Google AdSense
AdSense serves high-quality ads for your site. They were filtered and were carefully reviewed by real people so you don’t have to worry that the wrong ad will show up on your site.
2) Sign up for third-party ad networks
There are a lot of awesome third-party ad networks out there, and they’re easy to find if you do a little research. Try looking for an ad network that best suits your website so they can monetize every impression that comes in.

3) Don’t forget the passback
Passbacks catch all of the unmonetized impressions by an ad network. If you have ad networks that have a 100% fill rate for all geos, put those as the passback network behind your AdSense or Ad Exchange.
4) Set up dynamic allocation
Sign up for Ad Exchange, it can’t be stated enough. Once you have both AdSense and Ad Exchange, have both of them compete with each other on DFP, via dynamic allocation. By having this kind of setup, your revenue and CPMs will absolutely increase.
