In our recent webinar, “Make it count: practical tips to improve your viewability” we received a lot of great questions about the different aspects of media quality. In this blog post, we’re answering your questions about measurement.
Viewability is the ability for a digital ad to be seen by an actual consumer. To be considered viewable, an ad must meet the minimum guidelines set by the industry, and illegal bot traffic and other forms of ad fraud should never be included in the number of viewable impressions. Viewability does not describe how effective an ad was, whether it was seen by target audiences, or even if it was seen at all.
We asked attendees of our recent webinar, Make it count: practical tips to improve your viewability to weigh in on the roadblocks to transacting on viewability.
People are consuming more and more content online, but up to 50% of digital ads are not viewable. That’s a big problem for both buyers and sellers. What can you do to save your digital, and your bottom line? In this recorded webinar, we explain the current landscape of viewability and provide key insights into how you can boost your performance.
2016 was an exciting year for digital measurement. Social networks and walled gardens opened up for third-party verification, and huge strides were made in bringing transparency to mobile in-app inventory. Digital advertisers are now well poised to measure the media quality of their campaigns no matter where they are buying, down to the impression level. But as we continue to improve our coverage of the open web and collect all this valuable data, marketers are already looking ahead. Yes, a viewable, fraud-free, and brand safe campaign should be the baseline of any marketing strategy, but what do we focus on next?
It’s no surprise that viewability has become a top concern in digital advertising. This guide gives you an overview of viewability, context into the differences across environments, channels, and devices, steps to improve your viewability, perspectives from buyers and sellers, and key insights into the impact of viewability on consumers.
