Google Consent Mode v2: It’s that easy

In early 2024, Google’s March deadline for rolling out Consent Mode v2 to certain websites and apps is approaching. According to Google’s official announcement, all platforms targeting users within the EEA and the UK must integrate Google Consent Mode v2.

Our article on Google Consent Mode v2 shows you how you can implement this with consentmanager , a consent management platform certified by Google. In this guide, we’ll explain how to integrate Google Consent Mode v2, where you can find it in your dashboard, and go over Google’s Basic and Advanced implementation methods. If you’re pressed for time or want to get started with the implementation process, use this article as your first stop. Click here to get started:

CMP reports are now even clearer

Have you noticed it yet? With the current update, the dashboard of our CMP has changed (for customers who use the new interface – do you still have the old one? Then switch to the new interface at the bottom left under the navigation!). So that you can view relevant statistics even faster, you can now find the overview report directly on your dashboard. The usability of the CMP report has also been optimized – you can now find it first in the reporting navigation bar. Try it out now.

Deadline January 16, 2024: Are you ready for Google’s new requirements?

Do you as a company use one of Google’s products such as Google AdSense, Google Ad Manager or AdMob in the EEA and UK? Then you should mark January 16, 2024 red on your calendar. From this day forward, Google requires the use of a Google-certified IAB TCF CMP. If you already have a consentmanager CMP in use, you can breathe a sigh of relief because the consentmanager CMP is already one of the CMPs certified by Google. If not, you should act quickly. Our experts will be happy to advise you – simply make an appointment at:
