Google Marketing Platform Features: Brand Safety in DV360 and Campaign Manager

We, as a partner agency of the Google Marketing Platform, are testing all the new features of the platform and would like to tell you more about one of the useful tools. In this article, the newage traffic manager. Igor Gaponenko will introduce Brand Safety and how to set it up in Display&Video360 and Campaign Manager.

Brand Safety is the ability to limit ads to unsafe content categories. It is available in many advertising accounts: Facebook, Linkedin and others. We as Google Marketing Platform partner will focus in this article on brand security specifically in Campaign Manager and Display&Video 360, GMP tools.

How Brand Safety works in GMP

As part of Brand Safety, you can add topics on which we do not want to be shown. That is, we can prescribe, conditionally, 3000 negative keywords, next to which our content should not be advertised. The system will analyze the page and, if there are these keywords, it will show an empty space or a stub instead of the prepared creative. This analyzes not only the web, but also applications and Youtube videos.

This is useful for advertisers who care about brand reputation – that is, for the majority. For example, for one of our clients, the context in which an ad is displayed is very important. With this tool, we created a list of words like “death”, “war”, “devastation”, etc., in order not to show the client’s ad in this context, and to protect the brand from being associated with such topics.

Note! If we use CM as an adserver and it sees that the display matches our Brand Safety settings, we will still have a display in the same DV360, we will still pay for it. But instead of ads, either an empty square or a default image that you upload will be shown.

Filtered traffic report

After launching Brand Safety, you can see in CM a report on filtered traffic and how the adserver qualified this or that content. You can evaluate which content ads were shown next to and which ones they didn’t.

In SM, we can immediately form a white-list and black-list in this report. This is convenient: we logged in and immediately marked the domain where we do not want to appear. And they can also be formed in DV360.

Output

Brand Safety is a great reputation tool for big advertisers. It helps to protect the brand from negative or unusual contexts. The disadvantage here is the need to pay for failed impressions, but with the right campaign settings, their share will be insignificant.
