Australian Publisher Increases Revenue By 69% in Q2 with iion's AMP Monetization Tech

The Publisher:

The publisher is a popular Australian website for a mature and wealthy audience, serving several million impressions per month

Previous AMP monetization solution:

Monetization via Google AdX demand and only standard IAB units (300 x 250). No competition via Prebid

Problem definition:

AMP pages are a critical piece for the Publisher to attract mobile users via Google Search, but monetization of AMP inventory fell behind compared to the web.

  • Auto-floor function increased request eCPM by 124%
  • Ad refresh & additional ad units increased total imps by 381%
