Report: Behavioral Targeting Helps Lower-Tier Ad Inventory

Share this content:
Behavioral targeting to maximize the effectiveness of lower-tier ad inventory helped advertisers gain increases in click-through rates while yielding higher CPMs to publishers, according to a report released yesterday by 24/7 Real Media Inc.

Click-through rates rose 250 percent in the first quarter of 2005 compared with the preceding quarter. The yield per thousand impressions of publishers' overall inventory of lower-tier inventory also grew 550 percent.

The findings were based on the results from first-quarter campaigns using 24/7 OnTarget, an online network behavioral targeting service.

Meanwhile, New York-based 24/7 added six behavioral-targeting segments in the first quarter to raise the total to 14. The new segments include men, Hispanics and African-American; stock watchers; big spenders; and cyber jockeys.
