PlacementService (v201808)

Provides methods for creating, updating and retrieving Placement objects.

You can use a placement to group ad units. For example, you might have a placement that focuses on sports sites, which may be spread across different branches of your inventory. You might also have a "fire sale" placement that includes ad units that have not been selling and are consequently priced very attractively.
