In-Article Ad Unit Optimizations

TL;DR: We recently optimized the functionality of our in-article units to create more revenue opportunity without introducing CLS!

With a brand-new addition to its functionality, our in-article unit now has the ability to provide a fixed-height container around the unit. See the light blue area in the animation below:


This functionality allows us to serve multiple ad sizes (which means more revenue!) into the container without causing any disruptions to your Cumulative Layout Score (CLS), which directly correlates with a better user experience, higher search rankings, and more organic traffic.

Additionally, because the ad unit scrolls within the body of the container, it helps to improve viewability as well.

Analytics Upgrade

TL;DR: Say goodbye to Universal Analytics and hello to more robust analytics with GA4!

With the sunsetting of Universal Analytics, our team has been hard at work further improving our GA4 offering.

Our platform reporting now offers publishers additional features such as new sticky rows, ensuring column headers stay visible while a user scrolls, as well as grand totals row, to provide an overview of your data at a quick glance.


Additionally, we’ve bolstered our speed to make load times faster so publishers can spend less time reviewing their performance data and more time acting on it.

Page Performance Improvements

TL;DR: We recently made updates to our bidder stack including more granular control over auctions and more efficient ad requests.

To further enhance page performance and maximize publisher revenue, we’ve packaged ad units into one call to the server in order to minimize latency and total network requests.

We have also updated the list of bidder partners within our stack vying to win auctions on your page, and increased control over which bidders we want in the auction and for how long.
