HTML5 ad material
These guidelines are meant for the produciton of creatives based on HTML5 and will be served as digital advertisement on Bonnier News (Di, DN, Expressen and Bonnier Ad Network).
The following guidelines are important for delivery and the success of the campaign. Creatives that don't follow the guidelines will not be approved. We use Google DFP as our ad server and the guidelines are written to be compatible with that.
We use friendly iframes as our way of delivery.
- It is not allowed to break out from iframe (frame busting).
Contact Adops if the format demands it.
- Animation of elements may not exceed 30 seconds.
- Ad materials have to start rendering of visual elements within 0.5 seconds
- Average processor usage has to be a maximum of 30%, with a maximum peak fo 60%.
- Maximum amount of requests are 15 per ad material.
- The main file of the material must be namned index.html.
- Relative sources are to be used for resources and files in the material.
- References to external resources ¹ must be absolute and start with https//: and must support SSL/TLS.
- It is not allowed to prevent scrolling ².
- Geo Location and similar Web API:s that demands the approval of the user may only be used after user interaction.
¹ Such as CDN and external font libraries.
² Do not use TouchStart as trigger for interaction
(since TouchStart is triggered by scrolling)
We measuer the total weight of the material since HTML5 consists of several different resources and we test how every resource is loaded and in what order.
You can choose to use whitelisted CDN:s, but these will be counted for in the total file size of the material.
Important: If your material demands that the limit is exceeded, contact Ad-ops in time.
Note that measuring scripts and scripts from 3rd parties, such as Google, Sizmek and Adform is counted for as part of the total weight.
That means that you as an ad creator cannot use all of the total weight of the material when you deliver materials including measuring scripts or deliver through a 3rd party, since the measuring script and/or the 3rd party script will take some of the total weight.
Remember that it is possible to load extra resources after user interaction. These resources are not counted for in the initial size limitations.
Bonnier News test all material through Advalidation.com according to specific parameters. Materials that fail in tests will not be approved.
- Never animate hidden elements.
- Try to reduce the number of requests.
- Avoid loading heavy material such as video before user interaction.
STRUCTURE, PACKAGING AND DELIVERY
Since HTML cannot be compressed and delivered as one file it is important to consider the file structure.
The material should be based on an index-file that is named index.html.
When delivering multiple ads, these are to be packaged in individual zip-files.
HTML5 - Click Counting DFP
The material must be adapted to the Google DoubleClick for Publishers (DFP) advertising system that Bonnier News uses.
The clickTag variable should be used as the definition of click-through URL in all clickable areas in the ad.
This in order for us to measure click on it and that it will be possible for AdOps to be able to modify / post the destination url on request.
We therefore recommend using clickTag ie NOT the hardcode click-through URL
DFP warns if there is no correct clickTag or if a URL is encrypted in the ad.
clickTag should be easy for the server to read, do not use any minification or obfuscation. (However, it is no problem to use it on the rest of the material)
The script for the clickTag variable must be in the head tag.
Make sure all areas that are clickable use the clickTag variable as the definition of the click-throug URL.
Examples where clickTag is implemented in the HTML code:
was clickTag = "http://www.google.com"; </ Script>
[The rest of your creative code goes here.] </ Html>
NOTE! Make sure that areas that are clickable use the clickTag variable as the definition of click-through URL:
Multiple click tags count towards the same number.
- Destination links should be attached separately to the message sent to Bonnier News.
- If you have multiple destination links, these are specified with which clickTag is being used.
In a scenario where the destination link must be hard-coded in the creative, for example, when the link is created dynamically or similar. Then clickTag can be added before the destination link shown here:
window.open (clickTag + "http://www.advertisersite.com/subpage", "_blank"); or like this:
window.open (clickTag + dynamicUrlObject, "_blank");
If the destination link contains characters like? or & the link should be encoded as follows:
clickTag + encodeURIComponent ("http://www.advertisersite.com/subpage?var1=12&var2=34")
In this scenario, the destination link does not need to be sent to the publisher, just an explanation that the destination link is hard-coded in the creative and that clickTag tracking has been entered.
Documentation of DFP Click Macro: https://support.google.com/adxbuyer/answer/3187721?hl=en
NOTE: If no other instructions are given we will insert the %%CLICK_URL_UNESC%% macro described in the DFP documentation linked above.
For us to be able to track click count in DFP we need to be able to insert a click macro into the script tag. We would like you to always deliver the
script with a placeholder for where to insert our click macro with the following format: `click="[Google_Click_Macro_Here]"`.
The name of the variable, `click=`, is not important to us,
you can name it whatever you like as long as the placeholder-name is very clear about where to insert the click macro.
Preferably name the placeholder [Google_Click_Macro_Here] as in the example above.
