Browsi Advanced Features
Additional Browsi features can be enabled on the Ad layout Level.
From the Layout main page, press the Wrench icon on the Bottom right corner.
Analysis Mode: When enabled, Browsi will run on your pages without implementing any ads. In this state, data is collected for the improvement of the Browsi AI
Ad Placeholder: When enabled, Browsi will create placeholders for your placements, ensuring the page doesn’t jump when an ad opens or alternatively when the placement closes because an ad didn’t return. This feature lowers CLS and improves user experience.
Ad Density Threshold: Ad Density is the percentage of main content that consists of ads, measured by height. Once enabled, you can control the percentage of ads that take up your main content by stopping ad requests from being sent out after reaching the configured threshold.
Page level targeting: Set key-values that will be sent across all ad slots on your page. browsiID is a mandatory key value that enables you to track the performance of Browsi placements in your GAM. If you are interested in adding key values for specific slots - you can do this per ad type under the GAM provider.
