A publisher of any size gets the capacities to optimize the performance of their inventory, when they work with the third-party ad platforms. The first and the easiest step is to divide the ad placements by the categories. The ads within one website can differ in subject of the content. Let us run you through the technological specifics.
Why divide your website into sections
Let’s take a vivid example. An advertiser has some tech gadgets to promote. This advertiser can choose a website, that is divided into topical sections. It allows for the advertising of women’s epilators only on the webpages, which contain materials on fashion. This way, you are targeting your ads on relevant viewers.
Another positive factor is that you can avoid delivering your ads in the wrong context. It helps you stay away from possible negative associations. A website may contain the info on sensitive topics, including religions. It would be a big mistake to use provocative ads here. Instead, publishers may sell this part of inventory to the non-profit organisations. As a cherry on top, it makes them look thoughtful.
How it can be done
All ad units that the ads are delivered to can be divided into groups. A group like this may vary in its coverage: a site in whole, several ad units or a single one. The criteria for grouping ad units often are the topics of site’s content.
Functionally, the grouping within the site connects specific ads with the ad units, that you select. As a publisher, after you register the site at the ad platform, you need to create at least one section of ad units.
Some publishers use the division to separate the Main section from the others. The usual thing is to create thematic sections. In the last case, ads are not necessarily directly related to the content of a page. Sections enable the matches between user interests and the offer from advertisers.
