IAB Issues First Certifications on Measurement Guidelines

Share this content:
CNET Networks, Univision, weather.com and Yahoo completed the auditing and certification process, the first to comply with the Interactive Advertising Bureau's Global Internet Ad Impression Measurement Guidelines.


Other companies working toward compliance by year-end include the Walt Disney Internet Group, Accipiter, atlas, Falk, Forbes.com, Zedo, 24/7 Real Media, AOL Media Networks, DoubleClick, iVillage, ValueClick's Mediaplex, MSN and The New York Times.


Made public in November, the IAB guidelines tackle advertiser and agency concerns over the need for a standardized method of measuring interactive advertising.


A first for the industry, the guidelines give a detailed definition of what counts as an online ad impression -- the key currency of the medium. The IAB aims to create accurate online ad measurements across Web publishers and ad serving technologies nationwide and globally.


The guidelines are available on www.iab.net/measurement.
