Insert ads into Google Accelerated Mobile Pages (html AMP)

9 posts in this topic

Hello, like Facebook Instant Pages (read here) i'm writing about compatibility with Google Amp Pages.

Two weeks ago, during International Journalism Festival in Perugia, i met Luca Forlin responsible for Europe, the Middle East and Africa of Google strategic partnership in the news and information industry.

I asked him some questions about google amp pages adserver compatibility (read supported supported ad networks) and he answered me that i have to ask to adserver development team to add support for amp pages.

Is it possible to support google amp pages?

thank you :)

Hi @Francesco Spina,

Having only had a very brief look at Google Amp Pages, I don't see why it would not be possible for Revive Adserver to support this.

Have you actually used Revive banners in an Amp Page, though? And are there any specific things that this then causes the page to fail on re: validation?

There is no such thing as a "new" OpenX. OpenX is a company that operates several hosted services. Up to the summer of 2013, there was also an open source product called "OpenX Source", but that was transferred to this project and renamed to Revive Adserver. The link you included therefor won't help anyone running Revive Adserver.

Yes. I know that. I have been using OpenX Source for a los time and before that phpadsnew, and now Revive Adserver.

With new OpenX I want to mean that company. I don't know what software they are using in their services.

Reading the link

https://github.com/ampproject/amphtml/blob/master/ads/openx.md

you can see that there is a parameter to set the host where the adserver is running. That makes me think that  OpenX was the open source OpenX. 

Of course i have try it with my private versión of OpenX and don't work.

Inserting javascripts inside the AMP works. I have to try what happens when the page is cached at google amp cache

There is no 'private version of OpenX'. Let's be sure to only talk about Revive Adserver on this forum.

Ok, let's get it clear,

Can Revive be compatible with AMP ? Is there a plan to make it compatible in the near future?
I think that good number of Revive users are working on media websites, and AMP is a good opportunity for electronic medias and will be soon some kind of standard.

Personally, the only solution i've got is to use the <amp-iframe> tag BUT, it wont let me put my ad on the top of a page because of the AMP restrictions.

the only "clean" way to do it is to use the <amp-ad> tag like this :

<amp-ad width="728" height="90"
      type="revive"
      data-auid="12345"
      data-host="revive.mydomain.com">
</amp-ad>

the data-auid should call for a zone and not for an AD

I seriously think that Revive should be listed here : https://github.com/ampproject/amphtml/tree/master/ads

Hi @Mojrem,

1. Yes, I don't see why Revive Adserver could be made to be compatible with AMP, from what I understand of AMP.

2. No, the core team don't currently have any plans to make it compatible in the near future.

But we do want to see more development done on Revive Adserver, and done faster than it is at the moment, so this might be something that could be done. Stay tuned to our website for an update.
