Your application is approved and it is time to get ready to launch your Mediavine ads! Follow these steps once you've been instructed by a member of our launch team.
Please follow these steps to get your site ready for launch. These can all be completed prior to your launch date. Your ads won't be live until we flip the switch on our backend.
ALL OF THESE MUST BE COMPLETE PRIOR TO LAUNCH.
1. Add Viewer Permission to Google Analytics
Follow these instructions to complete this step in your Mediavine dashboard.
2. Login to your MVP Dashboard
If this is your first site with us, click the "forgot password" link to generate a password reset email to the email address you applied with. Make sure to check your spam if you don't receive it!
If you already have a site with us, we can add your other sites under your existing login. Your account will be initially setup using whatever email address you put in your application, so just let us know if you want to consolidate those into one. Your dashboards/reporting will always remain separate, but can have the same login.
3. Select a Payment Method and set up your Payment Profile.
5. Enable Grow in your Dashboard
Grow is Mediavine’s approach to increased reader engagement, and allows us to collect 1st party data. Grow builds your audience AND your ad revenue simultaneously. Learn how to enable Grow here.
6. Profile and Influencer Survey.
These are all in your Dashboard in the "Settings" area.
7. Let us know about your Recipe Card Plugins.
If you are using a Recipe Card Plugin, please let us know so we can target the recipe card ad for you!
8. Check your social buttons
If you are running social share buttons that float across the bottom of your screen on desktop or mobile, please turn these off. They conflict with our adhesion units.
9. Check for conflicts
Please review this page which lists some apps, plugins, and code that conflict with Mediavine ads. Ensure your site isn't running any of these codes, most importantly:
Lazy loading iframes or videos
Cloudflare's Rocket Loader feature
10. Enabling PSA’s to help CLS
Cumulative Layout Shift (CLS) is a pagespeed metric found in Google’s Core Web Vitals. It measures how much your page content shifts as a page loads, or as the user scrolls, with various elements loading into the page.
Enabling at least one Public Service Announcement (PSA) in your dashboard’s Settings > Ad Settings area will help mitigate CLS issues by filling unused ad spaces.
Yes! You heard us right. PSAs do more than just promote the good in the world, they also help publishers solve for CLS! We have additional updates to our script coming soon to alleviate any CLS impacts you may experience due to ads.
