The best season for advertising is here, and buyers are also shopping, not for goods but website traffic. Compare it with an employer looking for the best talent out there, and as a job seeker, you need to be able to create an impressive profile that’s searchable online, highlighting all your strengths, what’s unique about you and all the reasons you should be hired.
This is precisely what a Publisher Profile is – to allow Ad Exchange buyers to see why your site is different, what you have to offer and why your traffic is worth their dollars.
Simply put, it’s your online resumé for advertisers.
Follow this step by step guide to boost your earnings this holiday season:
Access the Publisher Profiles Section
Step #1: Log into Google Ad Manager (find out more about GAM here)
