Now we will add a unit or slot Id. Currently, HUAWEI Ads supports the banner, native, rewarded, interstitial, and splash ads. You can add units for the ad formats based on the app running status.
a) On HUAWEI Ads Publisher Console, click My Apps, and click Add ad unit in the Operation column of an app as shown below:
b) We have to choose an ads format as shown below:
c) After selecting any ads format, fill in the unit information, including the name and media type, and complete advanced settings as required.
eCPM: We can set the minimum eCPM for an ad unit. If the bid of an ad is lower than the minimum eCPM you set, the ad is not displayed. However, a too high minimum eCPM may lower the ad fill rate.
Frequency control: To ensure the experience of users, we can use this setting to control the number of ad impressions. The time unit of Frequency control can be minute, hour, or day. If we select minute, the time cannot exceed 60 minutes. If we select hour, the time cannot exceed 24 hours. If we select day, the time cannot exceed 30 days.
For example, you set Frequency control to Up to 1 impression for every user per 1 hour. In this way, when a user uses our app, the user can view up to one ad in the ad unit within one hour after the ad is displayed.
d) Click Save
e) Finally we will get the Ads Slot ID as show below:
