*Latest update: You can set multiple mid-roll slots now! If you got multiple mid-roll ads running, they will be placed at separate insertion points instead of playing back to back.  


Auto Ad Time Slots

After joining the Podbean Ads Marketplace, the auto ad time slots is turned on by default for your podcast. Podbean will find the appropriate time slots for your podcast episodes:

  • The default pre-roll and post-roll ad placements are at the beginning and end of each episode (before and after your audio content).
  • The mid-roll ad placements (during the middle of your audio content) are calculated according to Podbean’s SPP, Smart PodAds Point mechanism. SPP will select as many appropriate insertion points as possible.



Set Ad Time Slots Manually

However, you may prefer other ad placements or want to adjust the placements for some episodes. 


If you want to turn off the auto ad time slot, please go to the "Podcasts" page --> Click the “Manage” dropdown menu to the right of your podcast --> Click "Set Ad Options". Toggle off "Auto Ad Time Slots" on the "Ad Options" page.



To manually set/edit ad time slots, please click "Ad time slot for single episodes or manuallt batch set →" below on the  "Ad Options" page, or simply go to your podcast dashboard and click the "Set Ad Time Slots" button on the head of the "Episode List" page.



You will be able to set placements for pre-roll, mid-roll, and post-roll ads on episodes individually or by batch.
