Since 2017, DV’s Global Insights Report (GIR) has provided advertisers with in-depth market-by-market analysis from North America, EMEA, APAC and LATAM to help inform digital advertising strategies. This webinar will review findings from DV’s 2022 GIR and feature DV’s David Goddard, VP, Business Development, and Collette Spagnolo, VP, Marketing Analytics, who will join Daniel Knapp, Chief Economist at IAB Europe, and Erika Foster, Director, Standards & Investment Products EMEA at MAGNA Global, discussing how they’re able to leverage insights and metrics from the report to inform their digital advertising campaigns.

The webinar will explore the role of measurement over time and uncover how this makes verification poised to maximize performance over the next five years. We’ll also highlight significant global trends and regional findings on key metrics and engage our panel in a robust discussion on significant learnings advertisers can act upon to drive media quality and performance.

2022 global findings and EMEA findings include:

  • The quality of digital advertising on the open web, as measured by viewability, fraud, brand suitability and geo, is now under control because of verification mechanisms in place. The post-bid violation rate, which is the rate of measured fraud, geo and brand safety/suitability infractions, fell 6% year over year. DV advertisers, overall, now see an average of just 10% of combined brand suitability, fraud and out-of-geo infractions.
  • Across EMEA, more than a third of traffic comes from longtail domains – a traffic pattern that is consistent with the higher brand suitability violation rate across EMEA.
  • Brand suitability rates declined year-over-year, but EMEA is far behind North America and APAC. This may be because EMEA advertisers serve on more mobile web and longtail inventory than do those in other regions.
