Hi there, it’s Megan here again! Today we’re going to teach you the basics of how to target DFP line items in this Learn to Monetize More Video tutorial.
If you have been with us for our previous DFP videos, you already know some of the basic functions such as creating orders and ad units for existing campaigns. But the fun doesn’t end there. You can also create line items. By creating a line item you instruct DFP to serve ads at the ad slot or ad inventory level. The order pertains to the specific advertiser, while a line item targets the particular ad slots the advertiser has specified.
Are you excited to figure this out? Allow us to teach you. Let’s begin!
Targeting line items will give you full control of where to put your ads and who can view them. This will filter your user base using the given options such as geography, age, and even based on the OS they use to access your site. Though it sounds complicated, completing the targeting step of your DFP implementation is easy as pie.
