YP Offers Programmatic Digital Display Advertising with OpenX Technology

NEW YORK and LOS ANGELES, April 22, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- YP, the largest local ad platform in the U.S., today announced the expansion of its digital advertising portfolio to include programmatic display advertising for national advertisers by teaming up with OpenX, a global leader in web and mobile advertising technology. Under the terms of the multi-year agreement, OpenX will enable YP to optimize display inventory yield by integrating YP National Sales team's demand with Real-Time Bidding (RTB) and ad network demand in one unified auction for each impression across the web and mobile. The partnership is effective immediately.

YP continues to enhance its digital advertising portfolio by carving out new and valuable digital display inventory for national advertisers. In addition to market leading search and mobile capabilities, YP now has enhanced its owned and operated display inventory, including YP.com and an extended display ad network made up of hundreds of sites. OpenX's single, integrated technology platform will help unify YP's digital display inventory across mobile and the web, making it easy to buy and optimize for advertisers.  This adds to the existing capabilities of YP's ad network, which connects businesses with more than 100 million local consumers1.

"Evolving YP's digital advertising offering is a core part of our strategy and now we have an enhanced way to sell and manage digital display inventory with a trusted partner like OpenX," said David Lebow, executive vice president and general manager, Digital Markets Group, YP.  "This, combined with our recently launched mobile targeted display products, shows YP's commitment to serve national advertisers looking to reach local consumers through performance advertising."

OpenX's innovative technology, which handles trillions of ad transactions annually2, redefines the concept of yield optimization for leading online publishers such as YP. In addition to leveraging OpenX Ad Exchange and OpenX SSP, YP will also leverage OpenX Ad Server to deliver hyper-local targeted campaigns across all ad formats on all screens. 

"OpenX is committed to helping digital media companies maximize their revenue and we're delighted to welcome YP as a partner," said Tim Cadogan, chief executive officer, OpenX. "Our selection by YP, a leader in the local advertising industry, is an especially encouraging endorsement of our ability to support major publishers across multiple screens on one platform. We're looking forward to working with YP as they embrace the benefits of programmatic."

This year, YP opened a new office in the heart of New York City – the epicenter of the advertising industry. The office is home to YP's National brand and agency sales team.

We're in a period in which the IoT pendulum is still swinging. Initially, it swung toward "smart for smart...
