Taking a mobile-first approach to native advertising

New opportunities with Yahoo Gemini enhance the experience for consumers and advertisers
Over the past year, we've reinvented nearly all of our products to be more visually stunning and effortless for our audiences, and we have always believed that the advertising experience should be just as beautiful and engaging. Today, we're excited to transform the advertising experience across Yahoo by rolling out new, image-rich native ads - designed to be mobile-first, seamlessly integrated with the content, and targeted to the right consumer to drive even better results. The new ads are available through Yahoo Gemini.

Every day, millions of people visit Yahoo to read the news, search for information, and check the weather, mail, sports scores or stock quotes from their smartphones and tablets. In fact, more than half of our global monthly active users come to Yahoo on a mobile device - and we are committed to delivering outstanding advertising that is designed specifically for mobile and integrated across our new experiences.


Available within the Yahoo Gemini marketplace, our new mobile ads include larger, richer graphics and photos for brand storytelling, combined with the performance brands need. While clearly marked as sponsored, the ads will look and act just like the content around them, and will appear within users' personalised content streams, article pages and image galleries across Yahoo mobile and desktop products. When people tap on the ads, they can visit the brand's site directly or view a full-screen visual for even greater interactivity and impact.

Top advertisers including Netflix are already using these new ad formats.

When advertising is a seamless part of the stories, photos and videos around it, it enhances the way people discover and share, while increasing engagement, recall, intent and favourability for advertisers. We're excited to move toward a new mobile experience that brings together engaging content and even richer advertising.
