On Workbench, you can adjust ad settings based on the following:
Associated Apple News Format (ANF) channel(s)
The country that’s associated to these ANF channel(s)
You can also enable a third-party ad server, such as Google Ad Manager, to connect to Workbench under Ad Settings. See Integrate Workbench and Google Ad Manager 360.
Ad settings by regions
Ad settings on Workbench can be applied to all regions (AU, CA, UK, U.S.) or separately for each region. By default, ad settings are applied at a global level. This means your ad settings will be applied to all regions where your channels appear globally. To adjust your ad settings based on specific region(s):
Sign in to Workbench.
Click Ad Settings under your username in the upper-right corner.
Select an associated Apple News Format (ANF) channel.
Below the name of your ANF channel, click the menu to see the available regions:
You can select a specific region and adjust the ad settings for that region.
You can add ad settings to a new region by clicking Add a New Setting.
You can remove ad settings for a region by clicking Remove a Country Setting.
Ad format settings
You can control which ad formats will display on your Apple News channel or article through Workbench. By default, all ad formats are enabled in the channel view and in the interstitial placement. Refer to the ad specifications to learn more about the available ad formats.
To maximize your potential revenue, implement both the banner and medium rectangle ad components in articles and leave all ad formats enabled on Workbench.
Ads will not appear inside Apple News Format articles until you include the ad component markup in your articles, even if you enable ads on Workbench.
