Hi,

IN gdn reports, on placements, you have "anonymous" mentioned, i assume that these placements are coming from adExchange servers, in additon to adsense advertisers ? Am i right ?

Tks

Hello,

 

Since the option to exclude these placements is explained only in the Ad Exchange help pages in here :

 

https://support.google.com/adxbuyer/answer/159152?hl=en

 

I would answer with : yes

 

There is also this interesting article about how to uncover these placements to decide if they are worth keeping :

Hello,

 

Anonymous placements are those where the Ad sense publishers do not want Google to disclose their domain name to the advertisers. So, that's the case you might be seeing those anonymous placements in your reporting.

 

You can find more details about Display Network in this reference: https://support.google.com/adwords/answer/3056115?hl=en&rd=1
