I have an ad that I want to get placed on specific websites. Is there a place where I can type the URL of the ads? How do I get my ads running on specific websites of my choosing?

How do I get to that option though? 

 

I haven't started running a campaign yet, and the options for "Networks" lets me check the box for "Display Network" but I can't uncheck the "Text Ad" option and there's nowhere for me to type in the website names that I want. Do I have to just start running a basic text ad first before I can start targeting specific websites?

Hi @Samwise S

 

Managed Placement is type of targeting for the Display Network campaigns. First you have to create a "Display campaign" and create text ad or upload image ads in the adgroup

So now the campaign is created, you need to add targeting to this.

 

-Click the Campaigns tab at the top of your AdWords account.
-Select a campaign and then an ad group.
-Go to the Display Network tab.
-Click the Placements tab and add the sites/ placements (by clicking +targeting) with the status "Managed.

 

You can find details step to create managed placement here

Hi @Samwise S,

 

This post is just for the purpose of adding some visualization.

When you are done with creating the basic elements of a campaign targeting the Display Network, you need to

- click the Display Network tab

- click +TARGETING

- select an ad group

- click the Add targeting drop-down

- select the Placements menu item

 

There you are, as shown on the snip above. You are advised to take extra care when going ahead with selecting various additional options.

 

Best,

Lakatos
