Silverpush, a global leader in cookieless advertising solutions has recently announced its strategic partnership with 4D, the advanced contextual targeting and insights platform, built by customer experience business, Silverbullet. This partnership is a part of Silverpush's efforts to advance its omnichannel strategy with Mirrors and enhance its vision for a cookieless future in the advertising landscape.
Growing concerns and stricter regulations regarding consumer privacy have prompted Safari and Firefox to ban third-party cookies, and Chrome is following suit. IAB predicts that publishers could suffer losses of up to $10 billion in advertising revenue once third-party cookies are phased out entirely. In reaction, digital marketers are scrambling to identify substitutes that enable them to deliver targeted advertising while upholding data privacy standards.
Silverpush has already established its position in the advertising industry with its advanced contextual intelligence technology, Mirrors, which includes cookieless solutions and in-video context detection capabilities. Through this new partnership with 4D, the company is taking further steps to expand its cookieless offerings across various digital platforms, such as OTT, CTV, and Programmatic. This move is expected to have a significant impact on the industry's shift away from traditional cookie-based advertising.
"By joining hands with 4D, Silverpush's clients and marketing partners will be able to identify brand-appropriate content beyond the usual frameworks and target it contextually with greater precision," stated Kartik Mehta, COO & CRO at Silverpush.
This move will enable the company to offer crucial contextual insights by detecting non-endemic keywords and contexts that significantly impact campaign performance. This valuable information can be leveraged by advertisers to enhance the delivery and effectiveness of advertising campaigns.
Silverpush is an advertising technology firm providing cookieless AI-Powered hyper-contextual solutions to advertisers to reach their target audience at the relevant moment. Silverpush has a global presence in 18+ offices worldwide, has won 7+ global awards, worked with Fortune 500 brands, and has successfully completed 4000+ campaigns.

Perion Network | April 04, 2023
Perion Network Ltd. (Nasdaq & TASE: PERI), a global advertising technology company whose synergistic solutions are delivered across the three primary channels of digital advertising – search, social media and display / video / CTV advertising, today announced that it has seen growing adoption of SORT®, the company’s anonymous, privacy-driven breakthrough solution.
The scope of ESG initiatives is widening to include privacy, as consumers grow even more deeply concerned about how their personal data is collected, stored, and utilized. Perion’s latest survey of current SORT® users found that 67% of customers who responded think that privacy-safe solutions are very important to their brand image.
Having run on over 800 campaigns across all verticals and proving performance two times higher than traditional third-party tactics and three times the Google benchmark, SORT® is well positioned to play a vital role in the privacy ecosystem of the future, along with identity-based and contextual-based solutions.
More than 300 companies have leveraged SORT® since its launch, with momentum building, and recent clients include leading brands and NGOs such as Stop & Shop, Mercedes-Benz USA and UNICEF USA. Given that the “right to privacy” is the UN’s Declaration of Individual Human Rights, Perion was honored to have them adopt SORT®.
"There are a lot of claims about the effectiveness of privacy solutions, but the data to back that up is lacking. We conducted our survey to provide a fact-based analysis of our SORT® platform, and we are gratified that it confirmed our ability to deliver outstanding performance – most often better than cookies – without compromising users’ privacy. There is no doubt that the market for cutting-edge, scalable solutions for protecting consumer privacy will trend throughout and beyond 2023,” said Doron Gerstel, CEO of Perion. “As brands invest greater dollars in privacy-respectful solutions, we are confident SORT® will continue to attract new customers and outperform other solutions.”
“Stop & Shop is always working to ensure that we are ready for the cookieless future and that we were working with partners that were putting both privacy and innovation first,” said Shoshana Przybylinkski, Media Director, AMP Agency, the agency for Stop & Shop. “SORT®, Perion’s cookieless solution, continues to check all the boxes when it comes to easy activation and outperforming third party cookie tactics.”
SORT® enables advertisers to reach their audience at the exact moment they are most receptive to seeing an ad and can be applied on any impression or site with any format. Further, SORT® does not collect personally identifiable information (PII) and rather utilizes cookieless data points to inform decisions. The technology is certified cookieless by Neutronian, a leading data verification company, and has won several awards including the “Excellence in Online Advertising Artificial Intelligence” category for the 2022 MediaPost OMMA Awards.

Business Wire | May 02, 2023
DoubleVerify (“DV”) (NYSE: DV), a leading software platform for digital media measurement, data and analytics, today released findings from its “Post-Cookie Questions: The Evolution of Advertising Strategies and Sentiments.” This second report in DV’s ‘Post-Cookie Questions’ research examines the evolution of cookie deprecation strategies, the shift towards user privacy and its impact on digital advertising. The first report, which was released in early 2022, evaluated the impact of industry changes in their business models and forward-looking strategies.
Conducted in February 2023, across four global markets (U.S., LATAM, APAC & EMEA), the latest report polled over 800 respondents with a wide breadth of industry backgrounds – from media buyers and ad operations to senior decision-makers on both sides of the industry.
Key findings of the report include:
Cookie Depreciation Concerns Remain High, But Lessen Year-Over-Year
Overall publisher concern about the impact of cookie deprecation on their business remains consistent year-over-year, with 60% of publisher respondents indicating they were either “very concerned” or “moderately concerned.” However, those who stated “very concerned” decreased year-over-year by one-quarter (25%). Advertisers indicated that “multiple browsers phasing out third-party cookies” was their primary concern amidst recent privacy changes. Only 24% of the surveyed publishers stated they currently had a post-cookie solution in place. The remaining respondents were either still testing or hadn’t yet begun the process.
Publisher Revenue Expectations and Audience Reach Are Top of Mind
With third-party cookie deprecation and other privacy-related changes, 48% of publisher respondents in 2023 anticipate cookie deprecation having a positive impact on their company’s revenue. This is a decrease from the 64% of respondents who answered the same in 2022.
On the advertising side, 31% of advertisers indicated that their ability to target audiences effectively was among their greatest concerns in a cookieless future. Meanwhile, nearly 50% of publishers believed that making data accessible in open-market environments will be one of the biggest challenges with relying on first-party and contextual data.
When it comes to first-party data offering and strategies, both publishers and brands vie for supremacy. Nearly half of all advertisers surveyed cited their own first-party data activation as the cookie-independent solution that holds the most promise. Meanwhile, nearly half of all publishers stated the same for their own first-party data activation, highlighting the misalignment.
Publishers and Advertisers Agree that Contextual and Attention Measurement Are Top Priorities
As publishers and advertisers try to balance delivery and scale, contextual solutions and capabilities are top priorities. 96% of publishers surveyed say that contextual advertising capabilities will be important for their businesses in 2023, and 76% of them considered the quality of their contextual capabilities as “good” or “very good.”
For the advertisers, 94% of respondents stated they were planning to rely on contextual advertising for at least some of their buys in their 2023 media strategies, and 78% of them went on to state that the contextual advertising capabilities they’ve seen from publishers as “good” or “very good.”
“While interest in both contextual and attention-based advertising is on the rise, publishers must always consider what works best for their clients. Attention and contextual solutions represent new opportunities to measure performance in privacy-friendly ways,” said Steven Woolway, EVP of Business Development at DoubleVerify. “Our survey findings indicate that in a post-cookie future, both of these will play a role. In that pursuit, trusted third-party metrics can allow publishers and brands to speak a common language on these topics in the marketplace.”
Publishers and Brands Look to Align on Attention in 2023
Both brands and publishers pointed to attention’s potential as an advertising currency. Publishers have already started adapting, as 94% of publisher respondents have described attention-based capabilities as important to their business this year. On the buy side, advertisers also plan to rely on attention-based metrics (96%) in either most or some of their ad buys in 2023.
“The imminent deprecation of third-party tracking has publishers and advertisers looking for viable solutions and it seems that both sides are in agreement with contextual, attention and first-party data strategies,” added Woolway. “Opportunities are abundant for publishers and advertisers to align in new and impactful ways, and now is the time to cultivate direct partnerships and develop or refine capabilities.”
