Low Ad Yield
Under the previously prevailing “waterfall setup” of ad serving, publishers worked with networks that offered them the highest rates first, before pushing the inventory to those who offered lower rates until every impression is monetized. Pushing the ad inventory around in this manner is not optimal as it leads to increased latency and missed revenue opportunities.
Lack of Transparency
With typical RTB based programmatic setups, publishers are in the dark about bid data. Also, often networks have a conflict of interest when they have their own advertisers to please, along with third-party relations. So you just have to trust the data that the network provides. As such, it becomes difficult to verify the growth in your ad revenue or track impression-level yield.
Inefficient Header Bidding Setups
Most existing publishers who use header bidding either have vanilla Prebid setups or use header bidding wrappers provided by ad networks, both of which lack key features such as dynamic demand partner selection, smart timeout management, multi-adsize support, protection against bid manipulation, and lack of demand access from top-tier partners.
Faster Ads, Better Monetization, with Smart Header Bidding
Increased Bid Pressure
Since header bidding allows multiple demand partners to bid simultaneously in real time, it increases the demand and yield of your ad inventory.
Better User Experience
Client-side header bidding is typically known to increase latency, but our automated timeout and demand partner selection ensure that auctions are efficient and ads load faster.
Our platform records bid-level transaction data on the client-side, so that you’re protected against post-auction bid adjustment by demand partners.
Demand Partner Selection
The number of demand partners (and which partners) in an auction can have a big impact on the yield—too many partners can slow the process, too few kills bid competition. Our engine automatically selects the optimal number of partners for each transaction.
Smart Timeout Management
Timeouts are used to set an upper limit for long how the setup will wait for bids from each demand partner before closing the auction, we test and fine-tune timeout settings to find the sweet spot between maximising yield and reducing latency.
Bring Your Own Demand
We understand that publishers may have existing partnerships with header bidding demand partners that they may not want to abandon, our header bidding engine allows you to onboard them and have them compete with our premium demand sources. Win-win.
Native Demand Integration
In addition to demand from display ad networks, we also allow our native ad partners to compete in the header bidding auction. This leads to increased bid competition for the available inventory and ultimately greater revenue for the publisher.
Bid Monitoring & Discrepancy Resolution
Our header bidding system monitors and records all bids made by buyers which can be reviewed by the publisher. In case of any mismatch between recorded bids and final yield, we have a discrepancy resolution process in place.
Our header bidding engine considers bids for all the ad unit sizes that can fit within the ad container that is being bid on, this creates a wider pool of bids and helps maximise the revenue for every single ad impression.
Robust Analytics & Bid-Level Reporting
We provide detailed metrics related to your header bidding setup, partner-level performance, in addition to granular auction data. This can help you generate insights about header bidding usage and UX impact. We can also send your data to third-party analytics services such as Google Analytics.
