Contextual targeting is the automated process of matching ad placements to relevant target inventory without relying on user IDs or cookies. This helps media buyers easily identify valuable impressions and reach the right viewers in a privacy-forward manner across a fragmented ecosystem. Contextual targeting also provides brand safety and brand suitability by automatically excluding sensitive content or topics.
