Background on the ADmantX Semantic Advertising Display Service
The holy grail of matching ads to a page has been described as knowing “the right consumer, at the right time, at the right frame of mind”. Behavioral Targeting and Audience Buying can certainly take care of the right consumer part of the equation. IP sniffing and a few other tricks more or less take care of time and place. But if you are concerned about brand safety and improved response, you are missing a key metric: context.
When you hear “contextual” as a targeting approach remember this is really nothing more than a dressed up way of saying keywords. And keywords are notoriously bad at true contextual understanding.
The use of semantic technology to establish context is really about correcting and expanding on keyword understanding. Both correcting (disambiguating common, multi-definition words for their in-sentence meaning) and expanding (looking for the story-arc across all the content) is a classic segmentation scheme. The deeper the segments, the more potential matches, the better the accuracy of the ad match.
Take this accuracy-based approach and extend it now into the realm of emotions, buyer intentions, people, places, things, brands, standard categories and dynamic categories and you have a very rich data stream that is in fact the consumers’ frame-of-mind in the final moments before the ad match is made. Combining a semantic set of data with audience data and you will get the 40% improved engagement.
