Within the new permalink experience, we will now be serving the Taboola content recirc at the bottom of all standard permalink starter posts. The initial roll out will be for O&O sites, with AMP to follow at a later time. Taboola should run on both adblock and non-adblocked pages. The module will not appear on…
With the update to the magma homepage, we realized we broke the IX wrapper as it was not properly ported over. We’ve made a fix and it should be working properly again, and we should not face this issue with the update to the magma permalink pages.
turned on outstream for the Inventory in order to support a sold campaign. We have also removed any programmatic outstream targeting to the Inventory, so we should not be seeing programmatic video ads serving there.
Turned on the sticky top logic across all permalink pages. The ‘top’ ad unit should stick for 4 seconds before it times out. We should see a increase in top viewability as a result.
tested sticking the “top” ad position on permalink pages from 2-4 seconds in an effort to increase viewability.
no longer need the 1030x590 ad size as it was for Vox concert ads which we never moved forward with
updated Gizmodo.es Ad ID and Index ID to FMG’s (G/O Media’s) accounts
Since Univision will no longer be monetizing ofertas.univision.com, we needed to switch the DFPID back over to FMG’s instance. We also created a ‘uniblogs/ofertas’ ad unit in DFP in order to be able to target with ads properly
We were experiencing a lot of ad collapses across the site and believe it may be related to AAX. so we have paused AAX while we look into the issue further.
Officially launching with AAX demand. Our final set up will set a timeout for GA with a check for non-mobile and AdBlocker on before sending the GA pageview event. according to our A/B test, we should expect to lose out on .3% of pageviews being reporting to GA.

Once again turned on demand for AAX to ramp up demand in time for upcoming A/B test which is set to run 3/15-3/18
Officially turned off demand for AAX after completion of A/B test.
turned on Appnexus in A9 wrapper
added Yieldmo to A9 wrapper
Turned on demand for AAX (Acceptable Ad Exchange) as part of our formal A/B test. This will allow ads to serve to users who have opted in to “allowing acceptable ads” within adblock plus. The official test is slated to run 2/15-2/18.
promoted post were not working in second scroll on mobile safari, it is unknown how long this has been the case.
the 970x251 was incorrectly serving out of the scrollArticle placement. The purpose of the 970x251 to give ad ops the ability to serve units above the fold for their advertisers, and the scrollArticle position is below the fold and therefore should not support the 970x251 size.
