AdPushup Becomes an Official AMP-approved Real-Time Config Vendor

The big announcement!

AdPushup is now an AMP-approved RTC (real-time config) vendor! And given the fact that AMP Ads support header bidding which is one of AdPushup’s key propositions that helps publishers find lucrative monetization opportunities, this update becomes all the more special….because it is a matter of publisher trust!

AMP Context and History – The Rising Importance 

Fundamentally, the AMP project, an open-source offering, has aimed at delivering a positive user with the enablement of building mobile web pages and ads that are fast, appealing, and high-performing. In addition to being light, fast and to run on AMP-enabled as well standard HTML pages, AMP ads provide improved security (malware proof) and multiple ad formats, offering a wide range of avenues to publishers to increase ad revenue. User experience and engagement being of utmost importance, these attributes find increasing focus in the overall AMP landscape.

But why has there suddenly been a buzz around AMP Ads and auctions associated with them? 

Well as it stood, with the launch of the AMP project/offering for faster mobile pages, in-built javascript and header-bidding codes had been getting wiped out. This restricted the monetization options for publishers, blocking the header bidding channel. As a fix for this and seeing the plight of publishers and the community, AMP enabled the header-bidding option with its RTC feature. This was something new and publishers needed to implement this with reliable vendors, to have assurance around beneficial outcomes. 

What This Means for Our Publishers

While accessing non-AMP approved vendors, publishers are required to go for the manual configuration of URLs and metadata. However, with the availability of AMP-approved RTC vendors such as AdPushup, publishers are simply required to add the call-out URL containing built-in macros, to the AMP RTC vendor registry. Post this, publishers can specify the vendor they wish to access, and update the macro with the substitute value. Vendors as a result, gain full control over the actual URL, with relevant inputs being the only simple requirement from publishers..
