ZEDO’s IAB Slider Ad loads on landing and anchors itself at the page bottom. This document explains how the IAB Slider Ad format works.

About IAB Slider

  • Ad loads anchored to the bottom of the page.
  • Mouseover or click triggers the publisher page to slide to the left, revealing the Slider Content on the right.
  • For video files [mp4, flv] as the expanded unit, users can mouseover the ad for sound and click to view the ad full screen.


Flash files must be created per the IAB Style guide: http://www.iab.net/media/file/IAB_Slider_Specs_Final.pdf


  • Slider Bar: The floating banner that appears initially at the bottom of the page.
  • Slider Bar Active Ad Content: The area within the Slider Bar that can be used for branding. (The gutters may not be safe areas for branding because of different window sizes and display resolutions.)
  • Slider Content: The full ad area that is pushed in from the side
