Your DFP ad unit is defined on page but the corresponding div or body tag is missing. Here’s how to fix it.

There are 3 sections where an ad unit div or body tag should be implemented:

Step 1: DFP ad unit code

Step 2: Source code within <head> </head> or PubGuru Header Bidding configuration.

Step 3: Source code, within the <body> </body>, where the ad is supposed to show.


Step 1: Log into > PubGuru Header Bidding> Configurations

Step 2: Search for the relevant configuration

Step 3: Check the slot field in the configuration to make sure it’s correct

Step 4: The slot field should be your ad unit code

Step 5: Audit Div IDs/Slot IDs in the source code (Open the website > Right click > View Page Source)

Step 6: CTRL+F the slot ID/div ID

Off-page setup: You should see at least 1 result on the body.

On-page setup: CTRL+F ‘defineslot’, to locate the header tags.

… then CTRL + F slot ID/div ID
If you see in your results that you have 3 matches (1 on the header, 2 on the body) then that means that the div id is set up properly.

Step 7: If it’s missing on the page, verify if this unit should be part of the ad map. If not, remove it from the header bidding configuration. If yes, the code should be added on the page.
