Hi everyone,

 

I have trouble running Flash Ads, all my size of .swf files are approved.

 

I select target by placement, every placement I select support Flash Ads and size, but it not run.

 

So, I build another ads group that use Google auto-generate Ads with the same placement to compare, it work!!! BUT MY FLASH ADS DOES NOT WORK

 

Please if anyone know how to run Flash Ads, please kindly let me know

 

With best regards,

 

Sanguanwong

Hi @Sanguanwong P,

 

You should better use HTML5 ads now. Flash is no more supported.

Hi Sanguanwong P,

I agree with Ratan here, you need to shift to use of HTML 5 ads as Flash ads are being phased out by Google.

The sooner you make this shift, better your chances on losing out on valuable performance on your campaigns.

Hope this Helps!

This is something we also noticed throughout most of the campaigns. performances from flash ads seems to be reduced and as previously said best bet would be migrating to HTML5 ads Smiley Happy

Are you using keywords with your placements, if so remove them because the keywords add another targeting filter, which is to appear only on articles in placements with those keywords. And with the swf format you are using, are your words in a readable format or are they images?

Thank ShashankSingh,

Usually I use Adobe Flash, you suggest me to use Google Web Designer instead right?

Thank Ratan-Jha,

I used Adobe Flash to create .swf file. After that, I converted to HTML5 by Swiffy.

But I can't find where can I upload HTML5 files.

Please kindly let me know

Dear Hoang P,

I use only placement.

My Flash Ads have picture and readable text also.
