The online advertising space is a near-constant state of flux. Trends and technologies that govern the way advertisements are delivered, tracked and measured come and go according to fast-changing government regulations and the whims of the big, corporate ecosystem players like Amazon, Apple and Google.
One such technological trend is the Demand Side Platform (DSP). These fully automated platforms connect between advertisers and publishers, leveraging algorithm-driven programmatic advertising to streamline the process of buying and selling ads via real-time bidding (RTB).
DSPs take the pain out of digital advertising by automating the ad-buying decision-making process. DSPs leverage complex algorithms to calculate the bid amount for an impression at the precise time it becomes available on a publisher’s site. With DSPs, even small operations can launch high-impact digital ad campaigns across different geos and platforms (mobile, display, search and video) at scale.
Programmatic Fraud and DSPs
While there’s no arguing with the fact that DSPs simplify the work of digital advertisers, recent years have seen their popularity fall because of concerns regarding fraud and brand safety. Allegations of non-human traffic (bots) to boost impressions, impression laundering and domain masking coupled with a total lack of transparency into advertising metrics caused many advertisers to lose trust in the smaller DSPs. Brand safety is also a cause for concern with more and more reported instances of ads being displayed on extremist websites, and other websites that brands don’t want to associate with.
- According to the Association of National Advertisers (ANA), advertisers saw $7.2 billion lost to bots in 2016.
- Imperva, a leading security firm, claimed that 29% of all web traffic in 2016 originated from harmful bots.
- Research from Digital Place-Based Association shows that brand safety is a major issue for 76% of agency planners.
