This article covers the Placement types designed for the Desktop devices: Standard and Non-standard Site Placements.

Standard Placements

Standard Placements are a rotation pool of ads which accepts all standard ad formats.

To add a Standard Site Placement:

  1. Log into your network account and go to the Publishers tab.
  2. Select an existing Site > Zone or add new ones.
  3. Click the Add Site Placement icon and fill out the form that appears:
    • The following Sizes are available: Medium Rectangle (300x250); Skyscraper (120x600); Rectangle (180x150); Leaderboard (728x90); Full Banner (468x60); Wide Skyscraper (160x600); Half Page Ad (300x600); Button 2 (120x60); Micro Bar (88x31); XXL Box (468x648); Custom.
    • With the Custom Banner Size option you can specify the dimensions of the ad unit yourself.
    • Flexible Placement Size: This checkbox identifies if the Ad Units (Banners) that are smaller than the Placement size can be linked to the Placement.
    • Default Code: In case there is no Placement that would fit a certain user, the default code will be displayed. The Impression won't be counted towards Epom Analytics.
  4. Click Save. You will be forwarded to the Placement card where you can specify additional settings and get the Invocation Codes which are to be inserted to your web site.

Invocation codes / HTML Samples
