MonetizeMore Wins Google Innovation Award for 2022

MonetizeMore | November 14, 2022

Google has just announced the winner of its 2022 Innovation Awards in the Google Certified Publisher Partner Summit. MonetizeMore has done it again by hitting another significant milestone in ad tech innovation by winning the 2022 Google Innovation Award for Ad Setup Policy Violations. This prestigious award is given to ad tech companies with the most innovative solutions for publishers, and we’re happy to be recognized alongside other top companies in the field. We are thrilled to announce that MonetizeMore was chosen from multiple ad tech companies for Traffic Cop, our industry-standard IVT detection and blocking solution that helps publishers prevent and fix ad setup policy violations (ASPV). ASPV is the total number of policy violations found on your website. This is not an easy market to break into, but with our vision of the future of the adtech industry and our dedication to providing real solutions that are easy to implement and deliver promised results, we made it happen. We are proud to be the first adtech company to win the Google Innovation award not once but twice, a very impressive feat in such a competitive year. MonetizeMore initially won Google’s Most Innovative Technology Award back in 2020 for the #1 ad fraud solution. Traffic Cop is the industry’s leading Invalid Traffic Detection & Blocking solution that leverages advanced AI with fingerprinting algorithms to identify and block invalid traffic, preventing both your site’s revenue loss and your users’ frustration with slow load times and frequent ad interruptions. Traffic Cop also provides granular insights to help publishers fix their ad setup policy violations, dig deeper into their site’s incoming traffic, detect IVT by device, UTM source, sessions, and much more. Our reports have helped hundreds of publishers fix and block invalid traffic on their ad inventory keeping them safe from getting blacklisted by advertisers. As a result, your ad inventory steers clear from revenue clawbacks, policy violations, and potential AdSense bans. Thanks to Google for really showing how important it is to keep on track for policy violations. This is specifically under the realm of invalid traffic. What a lot of publishers and Google Certified Publisher Partners don’t understand is that invalid traffic isn’t just traffic quality, it’s an ad setup policy violation. This comes under ad stacking, hidden ad units, aggressive refreshes, and click spam. These come all under the portion of invalid traffic and we have created tools under Traffic Cop that creates notifications and provides granular reports so that publishers can actually detect these ad setup policy violations and go through them step by step to fix them so that their policy violations can be prevented, fixed and ultimately their businesses are safer from revenue clawbacks. We’ve been able to decrease publishers’ revenue clawbacks by over 10X. We’re now able to offer Traffic Cop not only to publishers but also GCPPs via API and our reporting setup. To ultimately help the ecosystem and get rid of invalid traffic and ad setup policy violations!- Kean Graham, CEO of MonetizeMore. It is crucial to us since Google is such an influential player in the adtech industry, which makes them a good litmus test for how we’re doing overall. It’s gratifying to know that our hard work is being recognized and we hope it will continue in the years to come. This year, we have helped over 373 publishers with their ad setup policy violations and saved them hundreds of thousands of dollars in revenue clawbacks through Traffic Cop to optimize their overall ad setup and eliminate IVT. We are honored to use this annual award to motivate us to continue providing cutting-edge technology solutions that help publishers save time and money.

VideoAmp Releases Second-by-Second Advertising Measurement Enhancement Underpinned by Commingled Dataset

VideoAmp | October 06, 2022

VideoAmp, an advertising measurement and optimization platform, has released “Second-by-Second Ads Viewership” as a new measurement offering to strengthen their currency solutions. As an enhancement to their advertising measurement solution, the offering enables TV publishers and advertisers to harness the power of VideoAmp’s commingled dataset to better assess advertiser performance and benchmark against program averages. Leveraging actualized results with inputs from both Smart TV ACR and STB viewership data across more than 39M homes, advertisers and publishers gain access to second-by-second commercial performance data in a flexible user interface. By utilizing VideoAmp’s proprietary commingled dataset, VideoAmp is solving for the inconsistencies and limitations of using a single data source. Additionally, while other in-market currency providers use average commercial viewership, which gives all commercials within a program the same rating, VideoAmp is offering distinct second-by-second measurement for each advertisement within a program or event, providing the ability for: Publishers to increase the value of their inventory with more accurate commercial and program viewership insights. Publishers can demonstrate how advertiser reach builds throughout a program, optimize inventory allocation based on exact commercial viewership throughout the program and understand viewership trends to inform content optimization. Advertisers can evaluate the performance of their specific commercial spots and optimize investment allocation to maximize audience reach. With this dashboard, advertisers can analyze their commercial performance vs. the average within a given program, analyze the impact of frequency throughout a program and identify optimal ad placement to maximize reach. BET engaged with VideoAmp to explore advanced metrics leveraging the Second-by-Second offering to understand key moments during the 2022 BET Awards. The engagement was designed to evaluate the effectiveness of the BET Awards in reaching high-value audiences across BET. “Access to second-by-second level data gives BET a unique opportunity to hyper-target and pinpoint content that resonates with our audiences and drives success. Our teams utilized this transformative data to identify the most compelling program elements, such as show performances, commercials, host presentations, and more,” said Berj Kazanjian, Senior Vice President of Ad Sales Research at BET. “These advanced metrics allow us to enhance our content, further our reach, and deepen our engagement with our community.” Some of the insights provided within the Second-by-Second measurement solution include: Commercial Index Impressions Frequency Average Commercial Audience Average Program Audience Advertiser Reach Incremental Cumulative Reach Total Viewers “Having a true breakdown of viewership during every second of a program is game changing. Average Commercial Minute is a compromise the industry has had to make due to a lack of fidelity in panel-based measurement. Big Data enables buyers and sellers to know exactly how every spot in a program performs – from exact-second start to exact-second stop,” said Tony Fagan, Chief Technology Officer of VideoAmp. “Being able to tell a unique story for each advertiser during a program and make use of the granular insights that have often been lost or overlooked, is a major step forward.” “Having a true breakdown of viewership during every second of a program is game changing.” said Tony Fagan, Chief Technology Officer of VideoAmp. Over the past year, VideoAmp has seen accelerated growth and market adoption for its measurement and currency solutions across the advertising ecosystem. The company has built a media currency with software solutions that empower the world’s largest advertisers, agencies and publishers to extract more sales and revenue from their media and content investments.
