Header Bidding & Prebid

Header bidding, also known as dynamic allocation is a sophisticated advertising technique allowing Publishers to offer inventory to multiple ad exchanges simultaneously before making calls to their ad servers. We run a unified auction outside of the primary ad server, which allows advertisers to cherry-pick impressions at the highest priority. This is sometimes called “first look” and provides significant revenue uptick when applied to a Publisher’s entire ad stack.

By letting multiple demand sources bid on the same inventory at the same time, Publishers increase their yield and earnings using Header Bidding.

Features of header bidding include:

  • Higher CPMs
  • Access to Additional Demand Soruces
  • Fast response times (under 500ms)
