Digital Publisher Audit
This comprehensive, continuous audit separates quality publishers from the rest and allows marketers to make better, more productive media investments while giving publishers a greater share of ad revenue.
Audits differentiate quality digital publishers.
Digital advertising fraud is a multibillion-dollar global problem that affects everyone. In today’s programmatic environment, quality publishers and fraudulent ones often look identical, which makes it challenging for media buyers to determine which sites are safe for their investment. Marketers waste money, and publishers lose revenue.
The AAM Digital Publisher Audit addresses this issue at the publisher level by analyzing website traffic and the publisher’s adherence to best business practices. The resulting validation helps quality publishers stand out as having valid human traffic and acts as a signal that allows marketers to make more informed media buying decisions. The audit adds a layer of assurance and complements other leading industry ad fraud initiatives to create a more transparent ecosystem that rewards quality publishers and provides better marketing outcomes.
