Google Ad Manager is an ad exchange platform introduced by Google on June 27, 2018.[1] It combines the features of two former services from Google's DoubleClick subsidiary, DoubleClick for Publishers (DFP; formerly known as DART for Publishers) and DoubleClick Ad Exchange (AdX).[2][3] Google Ad Manager initially used a second-price auction format, before announcing that it would be replaced with a first-price auction format in March 2019.[4] Google Ad Manager is the free version of this online ad management software and it is recommended for small businesses. Google Ad Manager 360 is the paid version. Google Ad Manager does not require a minimum amount of impressions on individual active ads, but it does have a limit of 200 million impressions per month. [5] Google Ad Manager manages inventory for advertisers, publishers and ad servers. Advertisers are able to manage their inventory of ad creative, publishers are able to manage their ad space inventory, and ad servers can use the platform to determine which ad to serve and where to serve it.[6] Additionally, Google Ad Manager can use data collected from ad performance and ad space performance to make suggested optimizations to the user. [7] These optimizations suggest what the user could change to better reach the goals they have set for a particular campaign.
