      var staticSlot;

      googletag.cmd.push(function() {
        // Define an anchor ad slot at the top of the viewport.
        // Note: a single anchor ad slot may be defined per page, at either the
        // top or bottom of the viewport.
        //anchorSlot = googletag.defineOutOfPageSlot(
           // '/200894144/Test_Mysite', googletag.enums.OutOfPageFormat.TOP_ANCHOR);

        // Define an anchor ad slot at the bottom of the viewport.
         anchorSlot = googletag.defineOutOfPageSlot(
             '/200894144/Test_Mysite', googletag.enums.OutOfPageFormat.BOTTOM_ANCHOR);

        // Anchor slots return null if the page or device does not support
        // anchors.
        if (anchorSlot) {
          anchorSlot
              //.setTargeting('test', 'anchor')
              .addService(googletag.pubads());

          document.getElementById('status').innerText =
            'Anchor ad is initialized. Scroll page to activate.';
        }

        // Define static ad slots.
        staticSlot = googletag.defineSlot(
              '/200894144/Test_Mysite', [300, 250], 'static-ad-1')
            .addService(googletag.pubads());

        // Enable SRA and services.
        googletag.pubads().enableSingleRequest();
        googletag.pubads().setTargeting('Type', ['adhesion']);
        googletag.enableServices();
      });
    </script>

Here is the working example for reference:

How it will serve after Coding done?

Just add “320×50” ad size on the ad unit settings in GAM which used on the above tagging. No other size will support on anchor ads. Just traffic similar like other ad unit and select 320×50. Creative automatically serve on the anchor position.
