Canada’s Globe and Mail Offers Custom Brand Suitability for Advertisers with IAS Context Control

Marketers can now control their ad adjacencies with a wide array of contextual signals, including the sentiment and the emotional classification of content on a specific page. This enables advertisers to find the most relevant content adjacencies for campaigns within brand-safe and suitable environments. The powerful tool also delivers a precise semantic understanding of page-level context – this enables advertisers to navigate common homonym scenarios that keywords cannot (such as the difference between “gun shot” versus “golf shot” content).
