Understanding post view and how you can create effective display campaigns with zanox

Posted by Alexandra Lilienthal in Advertiser tips & news , June 15th, 2015

Rarely another topic has been discussed as critically as post view tracking (TPV) when it was introduced about seven years ago, but there have been significant changes over the past years.  TPV has evolved rapidly and post view affiliates have developed into professional display experts, who are accountable for a large portion of affiliate budgets and to a large extent, determine the market.

zanox display campaigns play an important role in the affiliate mix. Advertisers can benefit from extensive reach and retargeting campaigns on a TPV basis to effectively have their ads displayed on spaces with big inventories or exclusive content portals. When planning campaigns, they can rely on the expertise of our professional publishers, who also settle display campaigns on a performance basis.

Nevertheless, this type of advertising still raises many questions with advertisers. Which is why we have created a FAQ guide for you.

DruckAdditionally, our partner and display marketing expert redvertisment has put together a comprehensive white paper on post view. Here, all questions on measurability and advertising effects of post view as well as overlaps with other channels are discussed.

If you want to extend your existing programme with display campaigns or want to find out more, get in touch.

Status on HTTPS as standard for ad delivery. We are ready, are you?

Posted by Alexandra Lilienthal in Advertiser tips & news, Market Insights, Tips for publishers , May 12th, 2015


As the current discussion on setting HTTPS as standard for ad delivery gathers pace, and with Google switching to HTTPS by the end of June, we would like to summarise the information that is relevant for our advertisers and publishers. Google will adjust its ranking algorithm to favour encrypted ad media while the IAB is pushing for encryption standards to further secure online advertising.

First and foremost, we do believe in the importance of online security. Therefore, zanox technologies have already been supporting HTTPS for the past few years. Ever since, we are working on getting everyone on board to ensure a seamless and secure process when delivering ad media via our network. To fully support the complete redirect chain (image and target URLs), the involvement of the file host is crucial. In our case this is not always us, but also advertisers and third parties such as CDNs or agencies. Read the rest of this entry »

Improve your mobile website for better rankings

Posted by admin in Tips for publishers , May 4th, 2015

Recently, Google rolled out it’s new mobile algorithm. With the latest adjustments, the mobile user plays a bigger role than ever before. Nowadays, many websites already have a responsive design. This is very important, as mobile traffic, and mobile e-commerce, is still on the rise. Did you know that mobile transactions increased by 82% and mobile revenues rose by an impressive 105% in 2014 (source: mobile performance barometer 2015)? Nevertheless, there are still many websites that are not (fully) optimised for mobile devices. Make sure to optimise your website for a good mobile user experience and better rankings in the mobile search results. Read the rest of this entry »

The social media world and its main players at a glance

Posted by Alexandra Lilienthal in Advertiser tips & news, Market Insights, Tips for publishers , April 28th, 2015


Looking at the social media landscape, we mainly see international players that operate across the globe dominating the scene. Facebook, YouTube, Instagram and Twitter show up to more than one billion monthly active users. Amongst those, Facebook (1,39 billion) and YouTube (1 billion) are the strongest reporting in the billion section. A few users less, but still growing are Instagram and Twitter, that may have the potential to overtake on a global scale.

In particular, China forms a huge, individual market with QQ even leading in instant messaging, and Qzone coming in second after Facebook when it comes to monthly active users on social networks globally. Also Russian social network vk is amongst the top social networks with 46,8 million users. Those social media channels reflect local needs and conditions and serve a huge market potential.

If you are not operating in these markets you are well of staying with the common social media channels, but don’t forget to apply a local strategy. It’s not only China and Russia that have individual social channels, but also across Europe local players can be important for your social media communication – don’t leave them unnoticed.
