When using Google Ad Manager (GAM) or PubGuru Header Bidding onpage codes, deploy your <head> and <body> tags as you normally would. To enable Traffic Cop on “measure” mode, your MonetizeMore Account Manager will also provide you with an additional script which you need to deploy before the closing </body> tag of your site HTML.

Check out PubGuru University to learn more about deploying ad tags, and optimizing ads with AdSense, Google Ad Manager, and more!

If using WordPress, you can deploy the script using any of these plugins:

Advanced Ads

Click Advanced Ads > Ads > New Ad

Give it a title or name. Something that would allow you to easily identify this ad (e.g. m2_trafficcop)

Ad type: Plain Text and Code

Paste the script in the space provided under Ad Parameters
