Meeting Google’s requirements for serving ads in EEA and UK

On this post:

Building a website with valuable content for visitors has never been an easy task. Depending on revenue coming from ads has always been even harder. Now add privacy regulations to the mix and it becomes a living hell for publishers.

It is true, as visitors we want a transparent, privacy-aware ecosystem where our choices count, but at the same time we still want to access that valuable content many publishers provide.

Luckily, ever since 2020, Google has been posting new requirements for websites to meet in order to display ads in a privacy-compliant way by leveraging IAB’s TCF v2.2. This brings a new balance in which ads and transparent and safe navigation can co-exist.

However, this made serving ads way too technical. So, as a publisher, how can you accomplish this without losing focus on creating content? Well, let’s see!

Google’s requirements

In order to serve ads in EEA and UK, Google requires you to use a Consent Management Provider (CMP) that:

Once you start using a CMP with these characteristics, you will see that your ads will not be displayed until the user gives an explicit consent through its notice.

So, using a CMP focused on optimizing the gathering of consents is critical for your business.
