  • 2. Agenda
    • Behavioural targeting
    • Snippets
    • Snapshots
  • 3. What is it?
    • Uses your web history to target ads
    • Two types:
      • onsite targeted content (purchase history, opens, profile information etc)
      • ads across network sites (network history)
    • In theory it’s win/win - consumers get relevant ads; advertisers get better ROI
    • But there are privacy concerns
  • 4. How does it work? Ad network Travel site Ad space eCommerce site Ad space Blog Ad space News site Ad space Sport site Ad space
  • 5. It’s all about the data
    • From: ISP; own site stats; profile details; networks
    • Approaches vary, often based on long history
    • Some drill deep to make assumptions
      • Eg: on a book store, I look at a book re kindergarten
      • > Possible conclusion: I may be interested in SUVs
      • Eg: I visit footie and BBQ sites
      • Possible conclusion: I may be a man
    • Many then add users to categories
  • 6. How does it work?
    • Eg AdBrite: categorises users by history
    • Advertisers can then target ads
  • 7. Who?
    • In-site users:
    • Big traffic sites eg Yahoo
    • Media sites eg Fairfax, USAToday, UK Guardian

    • Feb: US FTA staff report recommends self-regulation with increased transparency; limited data retention etc
