Additional macros on Demand and Supply side

We are adding new macros to the Demand side and new parameter to our Supply side.

Setting correct and detailed macro implementation is essential in order to pass on the necessary information from the Supply partner to the Demand partner. It allows the Demand partner to evaluate the opportunity correctly.

Changes to the Supply Tag

With the evolution of the industry to secure (https/SSL) connections, we are adjusting our Supply Tag to support secure connections by default.  

From the current release we make the Supply Tag secured by default, under Supply > 'Tag' Tab > Secure > 'Yes'

The 'Secure' setting will still be available for configuration. When changing the Supply Tag from 'secure' to 'non-secure', ensure that your buying platform and the Demand both support non-secure traffic.

This change does not affect the old implementations of the Supply that are already being used and receiving traffic. However, it is recommended to update all the running Supply Tags to 'secure'. Please ensure that the Demand attached to a secure Supply Tag is supporting secure traffic.

Example non-secure Supply Tag:

<div id="video1[CB]" style="width: 300px; height: 250px;"><script src="http://p.algovid.com/player/player.js?p=1&sid=EXTRACTED_DOMAIN&cb=[CB]&w=300&h=250&d=[URL]" type="text/javascript"></script></div>

Example secure Supply Tag:

<div id="video1[CB]" style="width: 300px; height: 250px;"><script src="https://p.algovid.com/player/player.js?p=1&sid=EXTRACTED_DOMAIN&cb=[CB]&w=300&h=250&d=[URL]" type="text/javascript"></script></div>

 

Note: If you are still using the old version of Cedato’s Supply Tag please ensure to remove the non-secure <noscript> HTML-tag inside the Supply Tag as it might cause issues with your media and demand partners.

Example:

<div id="video1[CB]" style="width: 300px; height: 250px;"><script src="https://p.algovid.com/player/player.js?p=1&sid=EXTRACTED_DOMAIN&cb=[CB]&w=300&h=250&d=[URL]" type="text/javascript"></script></div><noscript><img src="http://p.algovid.com/ppx/error?en=1&em=nojs&p=1&sid=EXTRACTED_DOMAIN&cb=[CB]&domain=[URL]" width="1" height="1"></noscript></div>

 

New domain is available as an alternative to algovid.com

We provide our partners with a new alternative domain 'imprvdosrv.com' available under Supply >''Tag' Tab > Network Domain Name.

Be advised to use this domain as the alternative to algovid.com when creating new Supply, as we will slowly remove the domain vdoserv.com over the next week from the Drop Down list.

The Supplies that are currently using vdoserv.com will not be affected by these change.
