We are thrilled to announce that today, Germany’s leading Multimedia Sport Platform SPORT1 signed an exclusive partnership with Taboola. Taboola will now power content and video recommendations for SPORT1.de mobile services as well as for the SPORT1 apps and desktop. In addition to content recommendations as articles, SPORT1 will also implement Taboola’s native advertising and video outstream platform. Patrick Fischer, Chairman of the Board of Sport1 Media GmbH: “We tested different technology providers and found Taboola was right for us for a number of reasons. First, Taboola’s content recommendation platform can be integrated flexibly and simply. The technology required can also easily be adapted to our infrastructure and can be extended dynamically. Lastly, the new partnership will allow us to better monetize our offerings on all channels and also drive an increase in time spent on our channels for every single user.” Adam Singolda, Founder & CEO at Taboola: “We […]
With the political season in full swing, we checked in with several of our leading publisher partners to see how they have been impacted by political advertisers and what their plans are to leverage access to their audiences. This interview is with Joseph Malchow, co-founder at Publir. Have you seen an increase in interest in advertising from the political parties and/or from specific candidates? J. Malchow: Publir can’t speak about the activities of individual parties or candidates. Broadly, here is what is interesting: politics is the art of the possible. Leverage, in politics, comes from shifting the electorate’s perception of what is possible. A turn of phrase, a novel leitmotif, a cutting accusation or inspiring claim: these things tend to do more to move people than the kind of marginal claims that ad campaigns are typically built around. (E.g. 10% off, Trump is better on taxes, and so forth.) If you […]
With the political season in full swing, we checked in with several of our leading publisher partners to see how they have been impacted by political advertisers and what their plans are to leverage access to their audiences. This interview is with Ford Jordan, CFO, and COO at Liftable Media. Have you seen an increase in interest in advertising from the political parties and/or from specific candidates? F. Jordan: Yes and no. We have had a couple of direct deals with some PACS. Overall, I would say CPMs from January and February have gone up more than they have the last two years. I also feel that conservative politicians are a little more old school, but Trump is better than others when it comes to digital. Some of the more traditional candidates were putting most of their dollars to radio and TV (perhaps leading to their failings). I think political advertisers […]

Despite the rapid growth of native advertising, there are still plenty of misconceptions about the format floating around the digital ecosystem. In fact, many advertisers and publishers even disagree over what a native ad actually is. At Taboola, our CEO Adam Singolda describes a native ad as any piece of advertising content that “matches the function and intent of its surrounding environment.” Under this definition, native ads can come in many different shapes and sizes, so long as the publisher makes sure to clearly label the ad unit as “sponsored” content. Without a full understanding of the different options available to them, many advertisers and publishers struggle to discern which native solutions they should employ. In this post, we’ll take a look at some of the key differences between the various native ad units people see online and explore which formats might work best for you. By doing so, we […]
Andy, CEO at AdThrive and the challenges and opportunities facing bloggers seeking to monetize their content – now with outstream video advertising.
Today, we’re thrilled to announce a 3-year partnership with Media General, one of the nation’s largest connected-screen media companies.
To satisfy advertiser demand for video ad inventory and compensate for limited pre-roll inventory, more publishers are offering out-stream units, which are video ads served outside of video content. Yoav Naveh, co-founder and CEO of ConvertMedia (now VP of Video at Taboola), spoke to eMarketer’s Cathy Boyle about the growing supply and demand for out-stream video ads and the factors that influence out-stream video CPMs. eMarketer: How would you describe the state of out-stream video? Y. Naveh: A lot of the demand for video in Q1 2015 was not necessarily advertisers looking specifically for outstream, but the demand for video in general is making its way through to outstream units. However, there isn’t enough traditional pre-roll inventory available for advertisers to run their ads. They’re also looking for a cheaper solution that performs for them. That’s the promise of out-stream. It’s a solution that scales. eMarketer: What factors will influence […]
Identifying loyal visitor behavior is essential to building an online presence. The sessions-per-user and new-versus-returning metrics are key.
Old publisher inventory like fixed placements has gone down with ad blindness, ad blocking, and other factors, making this a grueling race to the bottom.
