Contextual Targeting

Engage new customers with ad creatives that target content they already like and consume.

Contextual targeting starts with the category or keywords of a current website page that a potential buyer is viewing and then serves up an ad that matches the content the user is browsing. This allows viewers to see ads that they’ll be more interested in looking at, and you’re only paying for impressions when a user is interested in your ad.


Keyword Contextual:

Upload unique keyword lists to create your own contextual categories. These categories define the pages where your ad will appear during the campaign. You can use our tools to optimize bids and report on specific keywords.

Category Contextual Targeting:

Target ads on pages that group into one or more of 300 contextual categories, as specified by the Internet Advertising Bureau (IAB). Our advertisers have visibility on how each category performs, allowing them to optimize for better CPA, CTR, and CPC, among other KPIs.

Combining Keyword/Category Contextual:
