Now enter your ad tag Name, Type, and Size in boxes 1 – 3. You can optionally set a Floor Price and Passback Tag in boxes 4 and 6. To maximize the fill rate of your ad zones, we recommended keeping the floor price at $0.00. Typically, this is the best strategy for maximizing your revenue.
If you opt for a floor price, we recommend you select box 5 to let international ads ignore the floor price.
If Sovrn cannot fill your ad space, we’ll pass along the ad space to an ad provider you pick. Just place in the providers ad tag in box 6, Passback Tag.
Next, click Save Changes to save your ad tag set up in box 7.
