Header bidding solutions work harder

Previously, the only way publishers could increase their ad revenue was through the waterfall method, which left publishers with lagging revenue streams. Header bidding solutions through our partners work harder:

Better remarketing

Since you’re working with more header bidding partners, you’ll have a higher chance at winning high CPMs. Those tend to be reserved for remarketing purposes, in which the customer has already seen the ad once and is now going down through the sales funnel. By winning the highest CPMs ,our remarketing will have a better chance of being successful.

More bidding points

With header bidding, your buyers will bid for every ad impression, maximizing the value of each bid every single time. As a result, this brings them direct sales and maximum revenue.

Increased inventory value

On the same note of allowing buyers to see more of your ads, as you’re receiving a bid on every impression you’re increasing the value of your inventory, fill rates, and CPMs.

Easier to implement with SODP

Although header bidding technology may seem daunting, our partners make the strategy more manageable. They can help you to:

Troubleshoot page latency

Page loading timeouts can be directly linked to header bidding implementation. They'll help ensure your page latency is as minimal as possible -- with the goal of keeping it at half a second or less.

Use wrappers to your advantage

Through the header bidding wrapper, publishers can easily manage their demand partners and create unbiased auctions.

Configure your ad server

It can be time-consuming for a server to oversee the value of each bid. Your heading bidder technology provider can help you accomplish this directly, or if needed, offer a qualified referral to a specialist in this area.

Frequently asked questions

Client-side header bidding is all about control and monetization — it focuses on standard ad formats. When the user types in your URL, the header bidding code on the website’s header begins to send requests to the third-party platform. That’s when you start receiving bids and once the highest bidder wins, it’s passed on to your server. Then, the winner competes with your deals and once the highest bidder is selected, your server displays their ads.

In contrast, the server-side header bidding container follows a similar concept. However, requests are being sent from a central server. You don’t need the user’s browser for the code to begin to send requests to the platform. This is more commonly referred to as open bidding.

This completely depends on your own needs as a publisher and how much income you’re expecting to receive. It requires analyzing your current data and optimize what’s needed in order to get the most out of this solution. The server-side tends to offer the most flexibility when it comes to adding and removing the bidders, making it a preferred option.

In short, yes. If you’re a publisher that’s looking to maximize your website’s income-generating potential, header bidding can help you avoid missing out on opportunities that can help you raise revenue.
