Create a Private Network

Serving ads yourself can be of great benefit for avoiding the costs associated of running ads through a Network. Not only is there a cost benefit to running a Private Network, but you also have more control over the context in which the ad appears.


Use Cases for a Private Network:

  • You have a large user base for your app and want to serve ads in the context of your app.
  • You have your own website on which you want to serve ads.
  • You have a source interested in banners or interstitials within one of your apps.


NOTE: SmartLinks  are an alternative to creating a Private Network. For more information about SmartLinks, refer to our Create a SmartLink support documentation.
