Existing mediation technology prioritises ad networks based on a static waterfall, using aggregated data. Campaign level data is not provided by SDK based demand partners, so the highest paying ad does not always win.
For example, a network may have a predicted eCPM pay out of $20, which could be accurate on average, but in reality, this price consists of many campaigns varying significantly in value. Ultimately, there is no way to differentiate a $100 campaign from a $1 campaign.
Without real time data, demand sources are organised in a static waterfall, which each line item being called sequentially in order of highest paying, until an ad request is fulfilled.
Introducing SDK Bidding
SDK Bidding enables publishers to access real-time bid data from premium ad networks, reducing the need for a static waterfall and the reliance on historical performance data.
Networks are able to bid simultaneously in an unbiased auction, increasing yield for publishers and transparency for advertisers.
Integrating SDK Bidding
Tapjoy, Vungle and AdColony are available on SDK versions 7.0 and higher, whilst our closed Facebook Alpha is available on SDK versions 7.2.0 and higher.
