OpenX Ranks #1 in Both Web and Mobile App Inventory Quality in the World’s Largest Programmatic Market

LOS ANGELES and NEW YORK – MAY 12, 2016 – OpenX, a global leader in creating programmatic advertising marketplaces that drive superior monetization for publishers, today announced that it has regained the top spot on Pixalate’s Global Seller Trust Index for April 2016 as the highest quality, most trusted marketplace for digital inventory in the United States. The April 2016 Index ranks OpenX as #1 for U.S. web inventory and, for the first time, #1 in mobile app inventory. OpenX also placed in the top three sources of quality supply in international markets.

In 2015, OpenX held the #1 spot on the Seller Trust Index for web inventory for six consecutive months, the most of any company in the industry. Pixalate’s Global Seller Trust Index is the industry’s first independent quality rating for programmatic advertising. Traffic quality has been a cornerstone of the OpenX ad exchange since 2012 when OpenX led the industry in an ongoing campaign to eliminate fraud in programmatic advertising.

“Ensuring our massive marketplace only offers high quality inventory is an ongoing priority at OpenX. We are especially pleased to be number one in mobile inventory, which constitutes a large and rapidly growing share of OpenX total global volume. Since 2012 we have devoted substantial resources to raise and maintain the highest quality standards, enabling premium publishers and buyers to confidently transact in our trusted exchange and benefit from our superior monetization technology,” said John Murphy, vice president of marketplace quality at OpenX.

OpenX was also recently among the first technology companies to achieve independent third-party certification by global assurance provider, BPA Worldwide, for its supply through the Trustworthy Accountability Group’s (TAG) Inventory Quality Guideline (IQG) program.

The monthly Pixalate Global Seller Trust Index is based on analysis of more than 100 billion monthly impressions. Global quality ratings take a variety of metrics into consideration, including overall effectiveness assessing fraud, viewability, malware, engagement, domain masking and inventory scores.

“Pixalate’s Global Seller Trust Index helps advertisers select the most trusted programmatic sellers and exchanges at scale, by offering an objective security assessment of inventory quality, ad performance and reach,” said Jalal Nasir, CEO, Pixalate. “We support the industry’s continued focus on ensuring the integrity and safety of programmatic advertising, and congratulate OpenX on achieving top tier rankings across the U.S. and mobile indices.”
