Where do the units appear on my pages?

Can I have additional features, such as video or sticky ads?
Yes, once you have added Taboola to your pages, you can request any other Taboola solution. You can do this in your Backstage account, or by contacting your Taboola representative. These additional solutions are activated by Taboola – no work required from you!
Can I customize the UI of the Taboola units?
While we have created a UI that we know performs the best, you can make changes. Simply contact us in your Backstage account or reach out to your Taboola representative. These customizations are activated by Taboola – no work required from you!
