Hi! This is Megan and I am here to walk you through our next segment in the Learn 2 Monetize More video series. In this tutorial, we’re going to generate passback tags using DFP.

Passback tags are ad tags that allow you to provide alternative tags in case your specified floor price was not obtained for an ad slot. This ensures 100% fill in your ad slot.  As a result your ad slots always serve an ad impression and always generate revenue.
