How to Upgrade Contextual Advertising with Your First-Party Data

The deprecation of third-party cookies is the most universal challenge for digital media professionals, according to the Integral Ad Science (IAS) 2021 Industry Pulse Report. The media industry has been busy establishing cookieless advertising solutions designed to drive advertising outcomes for marketers while offering media owners better data security and consumers increased privacy.

(Re)Enter contextual targeting.

Traditional contextual targeting was built on the premise of providing a marketer with content categories that best match brand advertising objectives. But our industry demands more. The next level of contextual targeting brings together first-party data and contextual signals to make this legacy approach a promising solution for performance marketing objectives.
