Quizzes are brilliant at engaging your site visitors – with an average of 2 min 47 seconds spent per quiz. Now you can monetize this quiz traffic – easily place your own ads above or below your quiz, poll, or other Riddle formats.

Simply add an iFrame containing an ad unit below your quiz.

With 8-10 questions per quiz – that’s 8-10 ad impressions were quiz; that can be a big boost your ad inventory.

This is part of our Team plan – designed for agencies, brands, and publishers who need to both engage and monetize their audience.

Using ad tags within Riddle

Advanced users: If you are using an Ad Server, please check out our post on how to use your Adserver AdTags within a Riddle.

Ad tags let you dynamically show different adverts to different users – here’s a good overview of how it works.

But even without an AdServer, you can easily place advertisements into your Riddles using an in-quiz iFrame.

The iFrame is super flexible – you can go beyond ads to display other useful information such as communications to your audience, more in-depth brand sponsorships, and more.

(And don’t worry – we will never, ever run our own advertisements in your quizzes.)

Display ads above or below your quiz

Right, so let’s get started:

  • Head over to the ‘Customize’ step.
options for quiz ads
  • Go to the ‘Branding & footer’ tab and activate either (or both) of the “Display your ad” options.
ads in your quiz
  • Add the URL where you host the iFrame of your ad – then set the height.
  • Make sure the iFrame URL starts with https (!)
    • Riddle quiz embeds are https (secured with a SSL certificate) – so anything inside your quiz will need to be SSL-secured as well.
  • The iFrame width for the quiz ad will be defined by the width of the responsive Riddle frame.
    • For example – our quizzes are by default 640px wide, so you will need your iFrame to be that width.
    • Ideally, you should make your iFrame code responsive as well, so it looks great on any device.

Check out our quick sample quiz below – that features an iFrame ad for special offers to Hawaii (please make sure any ad blockers are off):

Sample iFrame code

The iFrame code is super simple for this example – just a line of text and a clickable image.

You can copy it from the code below to get started.
