Third-party ad serving
We accept third-party ad serving, but impressions are counted and invoices are issued based on SpaceNews’ ad serving system, Google Ad Manager (GAM). 15-20 % impression tracking discrepancy is expected. All formats will be considered and require extra processing time for testing and implementation. If possible, submit a test ad for any third-party ad shown or not shown on the list below.
URL should be submitted with creative. Advertisers are responsible for maintaining a working URL. Click-through rates are not guaranteed.
Company name or advertiser’s URL/recognizable logo must appear on all creative as advertiser branding. The URL must include to-level domain name (e.g., .com, .net, .org etc.).
Creative must adhere to any and all trademark and copyright laws. SpaceNews will not assume responsibility of illegal usage.
All artwork must be accompanied by traffic instructions including linking URL and rotation instructions, if applicable.
All leaderboard ads will be targeted to open a new browser window upon clicking. All advertiser submitted rich media, or third party tags should also be coded to open a new browser window upon clicking.
Online creative is due at least five full business days prior to the ad start date and/or rotation date.
Flash creative is no longer supported by a number of the larger browsers. We highly recommend submitting your advertising in another format.
