Elements

Element Description Data Type
AdFormatPreference The Ad Format Preference is used to indicate whether or not you prefer the ad copy to be shown to users as a search or audience ad. Search ads tend to be written as a call to action, whereas audience ads should be written in more of an informational style. While you have the option to use search ads as audience ads, designating an ad as Audience ads preferred format allows you to optimize its messaging for native delivery.

Possible values are AudienceAd and All. If set to All, the ad will be eligible for both search and audience ad formats. If set to AudienceAd, the ad will only be eligible for the audience ad format.

Ad Format Preference is only supported for ExpandedTextAd and TextAd objects.

Remarks

For Java and the .NET languages, do not set the Type element because the value is determined by whether you instantiate an expanded text ad or another ad type.

If you generate the SOAP manually, use the type attribute of the <Ad> node (as shown in the following example) to specify the type of ad.

<Ads xmlns:i="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance">
  <Ad i:type="ExpandedTextAd">
    <DevicePreference i:nil="true" />
