AdGet is a Chrome Browser Extension (version 6.0.2) that inspects web pages for Sharethrough technology.
It can be downloaded from the Google Chrome Store.
AdGet is used primarily for previewing creatives from SFP on live placements in the wild as well as simulating bids from STX in a publishers' live environment for QA'ing their integrations.
From the main screen you can see a list of any Sharethrough placements AdGet has detected on the web page from your current tab:
- Verify and Inspect Placement
AdGet is used to ensure that STR placements are set up and running properly. When the core technology is successfully integrated into the publisher site, you can see the placements with their associated pKeys in the 'INTEGRATION' tab. If our technology is not integrated, it will not see any placements populated in this tab.
Note: When we have a successful integration, you can use the extension to scroll to placement by selecting the placement locator icon (located on the right side of pKey in gray) to easily identify your ad on the page. Selecting the pKey link will open an additional page and redirect you to the placement settings in SFP.
- Force Fill (Header Bidding, Server-to-Server and Tag)
It is becoming increasingly common for publishers to integrate Sharethrough where our exchange competes with the publishers' other demand sources in real time for every impression. In such cases, Sharethrough's technology is usually only served to the page when we have the highest bid.
AdGet provides a "Force Fill" feature that allows you to specify a high bid price that will likely win the header auction. ($5-10 is typically a good starting point for most publishers.)
To use this feature, simply choose the Integration Type you would like to compete in. Then select the Force Fill Creative Type (Native Display, Enhanced Display, Native Video and Enhanced Video) and enter the CPM you would like to bid at. Once you have completed selecting your settings, select Submit and this will cause the page to reload so a new header auction can run. AdGet will simulate a bid response from STX at the desired CPM rate. If that rate is high enough to clear the header auction and if the publisher does not have higher priority line items competing for the impression (such as their own direct sales), Sharethrough will win the impression request and will be served to the page.
From there, AdGet can be used to scroll to and inspect the placement on page.
Note: The sample bids contain sample ads only -- not live STX demand!
