Avoid penalties by implementing a consent popup for GDPR compliance. Transparency and Consent Framework 2.0 (TCF2.0) Compliance guide for MonetizeMore Publishers

Effective October 15, 2020 – Ad providers will support the TCF2.0 initiative and could stop bidding for EU users on sites where consent signals are not detected. Therefore, all publishers must be TCF2.0 compliant or expect a drop in ad revenues. Read Google’s help center article here.

If you have any hardcoded codes like AdSense, Ad Exchange, GAM header & body, or Google Analytics, EU users must explicitly give consent before any of these tags, that collect personal information, can serve.

If you work with MonetizeMore, here is a quick guide on how you can convert your onpage codes to be TCF2.0 compliant:

Check your source code if you still have this tag:

<script src=”https://cdn.pubguru.com/pg.js” />

If yes, disable or remove it! Then proceed below depending on which onpage codes you’re running:

AdSense

 

Sample raw code (non-TCF2.0 compliant):

<script async src=”https://pagead2.googlesyndication.com/pagead/js/adsbygoogle.js”</script>

<ins class=”adsbygoogle”
style=”display:inline-block;width:320px;height:50px”
data-ad-client=”ca-pub-12345″
data-ad-slot=”123″></ins>
<script>
(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
</script>

TCF2.0 compliant code:

Can go either in the Header or Body (will be provided to you by MonetizeMore):

<script src=”//m2d.m2.ai/PUBDOMAIN.js” async></script>

Body:

<ins class=”adsbygoogle”
style=”display:inline-block;width:320px;height:50px”
