Hello,

I have recently signed up for DFP for small business. When I go to my account and say generate tags, I get GPT tags. Ads get displayed when I use the generated GPT tags.

As per this [google.com ], both tags work.

I used GAM style tags on my page, and ads don't show up. A GET request to pubads.g.doubleclick.net/gampad shows status message has a response code of 400 bad request.

What do I need to do in order to get ads displayed via GAM tags?

Any help is much appreciated.

Thanks and Regards,
Yogesh

oncalladops on google dfp help forum [google.com ] has answered my question.

You can only use type of tags that you can choose from your account. Older accounts seem to have access to both GPT and GAM tags, while new ones have access to GPT tags.

why do you want to use the old ones? The GPT are asynchronous which speeds up page load time ;)

Sorry for replying so late. Yes, I realized that later. Now we are using async tags.

Thanks for the reply.
