Mediavine Rolls Out WordPress Theme Framework for Passing All of Google’s Core Web Vitals

Mediavine | August 31, 2021

Mediavine, the largest exclusive full-service ad management firm in the U.S., rolled out its debut WordPress theme framework, Trellis, to the open internet for beta testing. Trellis is built for ad performance and passing Google’s Core Web Vitals (CWVs) while preserving pagespeed. Mediavine's premier WordPress theme framework, Trellis, is now available to the open internet. Empowering independent publishers to pass all three of Google’s Core Web Vitals, 77% of publishers operating on Trellis are currently passing. This compares to just 4% of sites passing on the internet. Of publishers currently operating on Trellis, 77% are passing all three CWVs: FID (First Input Delay), LCP (Largest Contentful Paint) and CLS (Cumulative Layout Shift). This compares to only 4% of websites on the internet currently passing CWVs, according to Search Engine Journal, which conducted a study of more than two million websites in April 2021. Specifically, 98% of publishers using Trellis are passing FID and 78.9% are passing CLS. Additionally, the majority of publishers using Trellis have seen an average increase of 35% in revenue year-over-year and a 30% increase in sessions year-over-year. These metrics can be attributed to the product’s industry-leading programmatic ad placements, pagespeed, viewability and overall user experience. “We are proud to pioneer a WordPress product that adheres to today’s web standards and empowers independent publishers to optimize their site performance for browsers like Google Chrome,” said Eric Hochberger, Mediavine Co-Founder and CEO. “Trellis meets the expectations of publishers, their audiences and advertisers, yielding top dollars for site traffic while maintaining a focus on user experience.” Whereas Trellis was previously only available to Mediavine publishers, it is now available for purchase to all WordPress users at marketplace.mediavine.com/trellis. MEDIAVINE Mediavine is the largest exclusive ad management company in the United States, representing and monetizing more than 8,000 publisher partner websites in addition to its owned and operated properties

National Advertising Division Finds Niantic's Charitable Donation Claims Supported

National Advertising Division | March 01, 2022

The National Advertising Division (NAD) of BBB National Programs determined that Niantic, Inc. was able to support claims pledging charitable donations to "Black gaming" as well as social and racial justice organizations. Niantic, a software development company, claimed on its website: We'll be donating Niantic proceeds from Pokémon GO Fest 2020 ticket sales, committing a minimum of $5 million. Half of the proceeds donated will be used to fund new projects from Black gaming and AR creators that can live on the Niantic platform, with the ultimate goal of increasing content that represents a more diverse view on the world. The other half will go to US nonprofit organizations that are helping local communities rebuild. We'll be donating $100,000 to the Marsha P. Johnson Institute and doing an employee match of up to $50,000. We're expanding our partnership with Gameheads a nonprofit that teaches kids how to develop games from beginning to end. This year, they are going fully virtual and taking the program global. We'll be providing $25,000 in scholarships, sponsoring their annual showcase with $15,000, and donating $20,000 to create a new "Developing for AR 101" program where students can earn college accreditation in partnership with Cal State. This inquiry was initiated through NAD's routine monitoring program. NAD's public interest mission to ensure consumers receive truthful advertising extends to companies' representations committing to support social justice initiatives. NAD reviewed whether Niantic could support its representations that it was making significant monetary donations to Black Lives Matter and related charities. Based on evidence provided by Niantic, NAD determined that the challenged advertising claims were substantiated. NAD noted that it appreciates Niantic's commitment to social justice and its participation in the self-regulatory process.
