Measurable performance

Understand the incremental impact of your contextual campaigns on your business with full funnel reporting through to the final sale.

Analyze web pages for traditional contextual signals

First, our semantic analysis technology looks at traditional contextual signals like URL, category level, text, and images to understand the contextual relevancy of each page.

Incorporate commerce signals using first-party data

Through our First-Party Media Network, we analyze where your products were displayed across our entire network prior to being viewed or bought. Then we calculate an affinity score between each product in your catalog and every contextual category and domain in our network.

Display ads with contextually relevant product recommendations

Finally, we combine the contextual relevancy of a page with the product affinity scores to showcase the ideal products for that page, to ensure more relevant and engaging ads.

What We Offer

Reduce inefficiencies

Use product interest signals and affinity scores to zero in on the contextual categories and URLs that are more likely to drive high-quality visitors to your site.

Boost engagement

Drive more qualified traffic

Smarter targeting and improved ad relevancy ensure your contextual campaigns will drive the commerce outcomes you care most about.
