About Video Ad Formats

Video formats are our newest addition to the inventory. We offer 2 different options: Video Pre-Roll and Video IM slider. Both of these ad formats are subject to the same technical and compliance guidelines, which you can read below.

Compliance Guidelines

These guidelines are what we consider the best practices for advertising with Video Ad Formats and are based on RUNative interpretation of third party guidelines. These suggestions are not endorsed or certified by Google or the Coalition for Better Ads. It is based on our current compliance guidelines and therefore is subject to change in the future.

Hereby we provide a non-extensive list of all the reasons that will result in having your Video Ads rejected. Please, make sure you comply with all RUNative guidelines. If your campaigns are regularly rejected, your account, domain name, or website can get suspended. If you continuously fail to comply with our guidelines, your account will eventually get permanently banned from our network.
