TripleLift Placement in Action

Of the many attributes of a successful Native ad, two that make a considerable impact are page location and size type.

Page Location

Describes where the placement renders on the page
Center-Feed: Placement is located in the center section/center content-well of the page, below the article title
Rail: Placement is in a right or left rail on the page. Rail placements will, in most cases, only appear across Desktops.
Leaderboard: Placement is at the top of the page, above the article title/core content

Size Type

Describes the nature of the placement/template render size and/or the render size we’re limited to based on restrictive unfriendly iframes Standard IAB (In-Banner): Placement template renders into/as a fixed IAB size ad unit like in the case of safe frames, AMP, and mobile app. Non-Standard IAB: Placement template renders as any custom size that’s not confined to the publisher’s standard IAB display ad unit dimensions.
