Yahoo Announces its Own Product Ads for Search & Display 1

As holiday shopping starts to pick up and every internet giant launches new and better products for promotion, Yahoo has joined the band by releasing its line of product ads targeted at retailers. The new product ads can appear on both display and search across both web and mobile platforms. The new ad formats have been launched just a few weeks before the Black Friday weekend.

Yahoo Product Ads Technology Partners

Overstock, Kohl’s and Wayfair are few of the major brand names who partnered Yahoo in the designing of the new ad formats. Other technology partners who contributed to the program through the pilot period are Merkle RKG, ChannelAdvisor, and Commerce Hub.

According to Yahoo, the early retailers who have used the product ads have noticed as high as 20% boost in their conversion rates. Many have experienced over 30% reduction in cost per acquisition. They have been able to improve impact of campaigns without increasing their budgets.

Access Multiple Ad Systems

Yahoo allows you to run your product ads across multiple ad systems. They can run across Yahoo’s search results powered by Gemini and on the search results running over Polyvore. It is worth noting that the search giant acquired Polyvore more recently.

Yahoo also has plans to roll out product ads as native ads powered by Gemini. The product ads can also be run on BrightRoll DSP as display ads.
