NEW YORK, December 21, 2021 (The Globe Newswire) – tabbouleh (NASDAQ:TBLA), the global leader in recommending the open web, helping people discover things they might like, today announced the launch of a new Original Bidding service, allowing Taboola to expand its existing and growing advertiser base of 14,000 sourcing types. Others such as displaying advertising inventory, social networks, and others.
Microsoft, a long-term strategic partner of Taboola, supported Taboola in designing the new bidding service, which will achieve Taboola’s goal to drive further growth for both companies and take full advantage of the opportunity of the open RTB space. As a result, Taboola has signed a new agreement with Microsoft until July 2024.
Historically, Taboola and Microsoft had a revenue share arrangement. By taking advantage of the new service, Taboola can generate higher revenue than the previous TAC and could lead to faster growth. The new Taboola bidding service will also provide more growth opportunities for advertisers.
“I am very grateful to our friends at Microsoft for not only being a long-term partner, but also for encouraging our long-term investment in the new bidding service, which will drive growth for the ad community, Microsoft and Taboola,” said Adam Singolda, founder and CEO of Taboola. “Against the backdrop of explosive growth in our industry, including digital platforms such as display and social networking – we intend to repurpose this bidding technology across social media, display inventory, and have it piloted at Microsoft digital properties in 2022.”
“We are excited to continue our work with Taboola as an open bidding partner for RTB on Microsoft Exchange. Going forward, this investment positions Microsoft and Taboola to bring more value to advertisers, agencies and publishers alike and empower them in new ways into the future,” said Kya Sainsbury-Carter, Vice President of Sales for Global Partners at Microsoft.
Taboola reaffirms its previously issued guidance for 2021 and 2022. Taboola will provide progress updates in 2022 on the integration of the new Native Bidding service with Microsoft and across offer inventory, social networks, and more.
Taboola offers recommendations for the open web, helping people discover things they might like.
