Nielsen tool

You can enable Nielsen tracking using Dynamic Tag Management by creating the Nielsen tool and configuring the page code either automatically or manually. The automatic method is recommended for most users.

Prerequisites

You must perform the following tasks before you deploy the Nielsen tool:
Task Description
1. Embed Dynamic Tag Management on the site (all site webpages).
You can add header and footer code that determines the loading of JavaScript and page content on your site. You must install both the header and footer code on every page of your site, regardless of the hosting option used. For more information, see Header and Footer Code .
2. Add the Experience Cloud ID Service tool.
The Experience Cloud Visitor ID Service provides a universal visitor ID across Experience Cloud solutions. The visitor ID service replaces the legacy Analytics visitor ID mechanism, and is required by Analytics for Target ; video heartbeat ; and Experience Cloud integrations, including the Adobe/Nielsen integration. For general information about the service, see the Experience Cloud Visitor ID Service Guide . For information about adding the Experience Cloud ID Service tool in DTM, see Experience Cloud ID Services settings .
3. Add the Adobe Analytics tool.
You can deploy Adobe Analytics (Standard and Premium) using Dynamic Tag Management by creating the Adobe Analytics tool and configuring the page code either automatically or manually. The automatic method is recommended for most users. For more information, see Add Adobe Analytics Tool .

Set up Nielsen rules in Dynamic Tag Management

Dynamic Tag Management is a rule-based system. It looks for user interaction and associated data. When the criteria outlined in your rules are met, the rule triggers the tool, script, or HTML you identified. For general information, see Rules .
When you add the Nielsen tool, Dynamic Tag Management automatically creates a default Nielsen Time Tracking rule.
  1. Click the Rules tab > Page Load Rules > Nielsen .
  2. Set up the rules as desired by specifying when this page rule should fire.
    1. Click Conditions , then specify where the rule fires (bottom of page, top of page, DOM ready, or onload).
    2. Specify the criteria for firing the rule.
    3. Include the path to the pages on which you want the rule to fire (for example, "videos").
    4. Click Nielsen to see a set of pre-populated data elements.
    5. Click Data Elements to map where you want Dynamic Tag Management to pull the information in these pre-populated data elements (Asset Name, Player ID, and so forth).
      For example, Asset Name might be pulled from a DIV to which you need to point.
