  • How does Header Bidding work?

    Header bidding is an advanced programmatic advertising technique that allows publishers to offer their ad inventory to multiple demand partners (advertisers) simultaneously before making ad requests to their ad server, such as Google's DoubleClick for Publishers (DFP). This process increases competition for ad space, leading to higher revenue for publishers and more efficient ad placements for advertisers. Here's a step-by-step explanation of how header bidding works: Setup: The publisher installs a header bidding wrapper, which is a piece of JavaScript code, on their website or app. This wrapper is responsible for managing the header bidding process and communicates with different demand partners or ad exchanges. Ad inventory: The publisher defines the ad inventory (ad units and ad placements) they want to offer for header bidding. Bid request: When a user visits the publisher's website or app, the header bidding wrapper sends bid requests to multiple demand partners, along with information about the ad inventory and user (such as device type, location, and browsing behavior). Bid response: Demand partners review the bid requests and decide if they want to bid on the ad inventory. If they do, they return a bid response, which includes the bid price and the creative (the actual ad content). Auction: The header bidding wrapper collects all bid responses and conducts an auction to determine the highest bidder for each ad unit. Ad server request: After the auction, the header bidding wrapper sends the winning bids to the publisher's ad server. The ad server compares the winning bids from the header bidding process with other demand sources, like direct deals and ad networks, to determine the final winning bid for each ad unit. Ad rendering: The ad server returns the creative for the final winning bid to the publisher's website or app. The ad is then displayed to the user. By allowing multiple demand partners to compete for ad inventory, header bidding helps publishers maximize their ad revenue and ensures advertisers have access to premium ad placements, often resulting in more relevant and engaging ads for users.

  • What is Prebid?

    Prebid is an open-source set of solutions designed to streamline and optimize the process of header bidding in digital advertising. Header bidding is an advanced programmatic advertising technique that allows publishers to offer their ad inventory to multiple ad exchanges simultaneously before making a call to their ad server. This competition among ad exchanges typically results in higher CPMs (cost per thousand impressions) and increased ad revenue for publishers. Prebid offers a suite of tools, including a JavaScript library for implementing client-side header bidding, server-side header bidding solutions, and additional tools for analytics and reporting. Prebid.js is the most widely used component of Prebid, as it allows publishers to easily integrate multiple demand partners (e.g., ad exchanges and networks) into their websites or apps. The main benefits of using Prebid include: Increased ad revenue: By fostering competition among multiple demand sources, Prebid helps publishers maximize their ad revenue. Improved transparency: Prebid provides publishers with greater insight into how their ad inventory is being valued and sold across different demand partners. Enhanced control: Publishers can customize and optimize their header bidding setup according to their specific needs. Faster page load times: Prebid is designed to minimize the impact of header bidding on page load times, ensuring a better user experience. Strong community support: As an open-source project, Prebid benefits from a large community of developers, users, and contributors who work together to improve and maintain the platform.

  • First-price auctions and second-price auctions in Real Time Bidding

    There are two primary types of auctions in Real Time Bidding (RTB) and programmatic advertising. First-price auctions and Second-price auctions. First-price auctions and second-price auctions are two distinct types of auctions that differ in how the final price paid by the highest bidder is determined. Here's a brief overview of each: First-price auction: In a first-price auction, bidders submit sealed bids, and the highest bidder wins the auction. The winner then pays the exact amount of their bid. Since bidders are unaware of what others are bidding, they must strategize and balance their desire to win the auction against the risk of overpaying for the item. This might lead to bidders submitting lower bids than their true valuation to avoid overpaying, a strategy known as bid shading. Second-price auction: In a second-price auction, also known as a Vickrey auction, bidders also submit sealed bids, and the highest bidder wins the auction. However, the winner pays the amount of the second-highest bid rather than their own bid. This auction format encourages bidders to submit bids that reflect their true valuation of the item, as they only pay the price of the next highest bid if they win. This mechanism is designed to reduce the winner's curse, which occurs when the winner overpays for an item in a first-price auction. In summary, the main difference between first-price and second-price auctions is the way the final price is determined. In a first-price auction, the winner pays their own bid, while in a second-price auction, the winner pays the second-highest bid. This difference in pricing mechanisms affects bidders' strategies and the overall efficiency of the auctions.
