Google Chrome’s privacy changes – how will they impact the online advertising ecosystem?
10. May, 2019
Google announced earlier this week that they will bring new privacy controls to Chrome, following the same path as Safari and Firefox have chosen before, but with a slightly different approach. The way Google is approaching this is that the classification of cookies as first or third party needs to be done on the site.
The New Paywall Is “Bendable”: How the Wall Street Grew Subscribers by More Than 30 Percent
20. April, 2019
Publishers face the ever growing challenge of declining ad revenue due to market-dominating platforms like Google and Facebook. And with so much free content for easy consumption and changing user behaviour it is a serious challenge for publishers to sell subscriptions, stop the decline and grow revenues.
Data traders’ drop out game has started?
27. March, 2019
Last week, it was reported that Oracle has stopped selling AddThis data in Europe. Data traders who collect their data in contravention of the GDPR can still be found in bulk and we believe that the removal of AddThis is just a prelude. We will see significant market cleaning done during this and next year and the first signs of this are already visible in the Nordic countries.
Advanced programmatic reporting across multiple SSPs and Adservers
27. February, 2019
Using multiple sales systems is a part of the everyday life for almost all media, especially in programmatic sales of advertising.

Where should you pay attention to when buying data?
16. January, 2019

In today’s competitive business environment, marketers must have access to “the right data at the right time” in order to be effective. But the world is full of data so how would marketers know whether the data is of high quality and worth to invest in?

At the turn of the year, there is always a habit to predict what the next year will bring in digital business and marketing, and what topics will become the hottest in 2019.

How to collect and make better use of data?
19. November, 2018
There is much talk about exploiting data, but what kind of technology and know-how are needed to get it started in practice? The ability to analyse, process, and activate data has become widely available to more and more businesses in recent years as more efficient data tools are evolving.
Transparency of the data market in a post-GDPR world
5. October, 2018
When GDPR rolled out 4 months ago, the whole industry was hyperventilating and some feared the programmatic advertising trade would come to a full stop if the consumers’ consents for the use of data would not be obtained. At Relevant, we were convinced that GDPR would free the market of the most suspicious players.
