Publisher Ad Inventory and Data Monetization
Digital publisher monetization is complex and dynamic. Publishers are facing higher labor and tech costs, diminished non-ad blocked impressions, lower eCPMs, continuing challenges to maximizing fill rates, and monetization partners who take more, yet pay slower than ever.
