Google Web Designer Upload Responsive Ads

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

Hi,

 

I really like the GWD and I'm have made some ads which work really well. But after making some regular ads I wanted to make a responsive ad so I don't have to make and publish every size seperately. I used the same content as before, but now responsive.

 

Publishing to a zip file went well but I can't upload it on Adwords. I get this error (in Dutch): "De afbeelding heeft geen geldige afmetingen." Which means the dimensions are not valid. But the dimensions are responsive so I don't know what I can do to fix this.

 

Can you maybe tell me what I am doing wrong? Or if you can upload GWD responsive ads to Adwords?

 

Hope someone can help me! Thanks a lot.

 

Karin

Hi @Karin J,

 

There are limitations within Adwords that play into your Ads design. Are you creating banner ads or expandable ads? 

 

Limitations

  • Expandable ads are not supported.
  • All images used in HTML5 ads must be local images, not referenced images, and should be part of the assets that comprise the ZIP file.
  • Only Google web fonts are supported. Other web fonts are not supported.
  • For environment target actions, timer and multiple exits are not supported.
  • Local storage methods cannot be used in HTML5 ads.

Take a look at this help file and this help file for some more info on this. 

 

Happy Friday!

 

- James

Thanks for your reply James. I also found the help files you mention. But it is a banner ad and I also think the other limitations aren't met because in the not responsive ad I used the same contect/components/events and they did work. (so the files are local, the font works, etc)

I also find it weird that the error message is about the dimensions which are responsive.

Very welcome, Karin. Sorry it did not resolve the issue.

Have you tried to re-upload and verify it was a not a glitch?

It's just because your zip file is maybe higher than 150kb
