If the code is only needed on a specific story it can be added by accessing story Settings > Code:

The amp.dev documentation is therefore a comprehensive and up-to-date resource.

Web Story Ads

Web Story ads (AMP) are full screen, single page ads that appear within a Web Story:

Advertisers or publishers can invite users to a web page, an AMP page or an app store link with a single tap. A story ad has a rich, flexible canvas that allows images, videos, animations or a combination of all those elements.

Web Story ads can be created in Newsroom Studio by selecting ‘Web story ad’ on the create story page. After saving, the AMPHTML creative code can be copied from My Stories and trafficked via GAM.

This page documents the current best practices when coding a Web Story ad by hand.
