Google Moves DoubleClick Into Next Generation Of Display Ad-Serving
The advertising display industry continues to go through massive change in terms of targeting and how ads are bought and sold. Susan Wojcicki, vice president of product management at Google, pointed to changes in business models and technology during the IAB Annual Leadership Meeting 2010 in Carlsbad, Calif.
Google launched the next generation of ad-serving technology Monday in an effort to continually improve ad-serving. DoubleClick for Publishers (DFP) will come in two versions: a pay version for larger publishers that require more options, and a free version for smaller publishers with simple needs that replaces Google Ad Manager.
Written on Google technology, the upgraded version of DFP offers publishers a new way to serve ads. The completely redesigned interface aims to save time and reduce errors. Detailed reporting and forecasting data give publishers tools to help them understand where revenue originates and what ads are most valuable with more than 4,000 data points in reports. And sophisticated algorithms should improve ad performance and delivery.
