The Trade Desk Universal Pixel Tag Setup Guide

This article describes how to set up The Trade Desk Universal Pixel tag in your Tealium iQ Tag Management account.

Tag Configuration

First, go to Tealium’s Tag Marketplace and add the The Trade Desk Universal Pixel Tag to your profile (how to add a Tag?).

After adding the Tag, configure the below settings:

  1. Advertiser ID: Enter your Advertiser ID supplied by Trade Desk. This is present in your Universal Pixel Tag.
  2. Pixel ID: Enter your Pixel ID supplied by Trade Desk. This is present in your Universal Pixel Tag.
  3. Pixel Tag ID: Enter the alphanumeric string of the <div> ID to be appended to the page. Don’t include the ttdUniversalPixelTag string.
    For example, If your ID is ttdUniversalPixelTag18r0156a77010366s9bn92m452l80672, then the Pixel Tag ID becomes 18r0156a77010366s9bn92m452l80672.

Use data mappings if you prefer to configure the tag settings dynamically.
