What’s inside

  • Facts and figures: 88 out of 100 publishers, selling ads programmatically, experience a revenue boost thanks to header bidding (Digiday). From another perspective, over 50% of US publishers receive higher CPMs with header bidding, and 31% of publishers witnessed an increase in yield (eMarketer). Adoption of this technology looks promising, but what’s under its hood? 
  • Header bidding highs and lows: Better targeting, smarter impressions allocation, increased yield, better flexibility, and lower latency are just a few benefits header bidding brings to the table. Yet, it’s not perfect, though. It still causes discrepancies, has issues with transparency when it comes to the third-party servers, requires technical expertise, and has a couple more pitfalls.
  • Header bidding ecosystem counterparts: Apparently, this technology goes hand in hand with publishers. Yet, the header-bidding ecosystem is not limited to publishers alone. There’s a complex network of cause-and-effect relations between the demand and supply sides involved in header bidding, and you’ll get a clear picture of when exactly they are involved in the auction.
  • Key challenges and the ways to address them: Implementing header bidding is a tall order, where you can face issues like cookie mapping, latency, performance, or lack of analytical capacities. In this e-book, you’ll find a list of actionable tips and solutions that will help you cope with challenges that form a gap between header bidding platforms and better monetization and UX. 
  • In-app header bidding: In-app header bidding, also called parallel bidding, is worth special attention. It’s a programmatic selling technique letting mobile app publishers sell their ad inventory to all demand sources simultaneously. In this e-book, you’ll explore the characteristics of in-app header bidding and what distinguishes it from mobile web advertising.
