Taboola Chooses Digital Element to Increase Accuracy of Mobile and Desktop Geolocation Services

Global native advertising platform, Taboola, chooses leading IP geolocation technology provider to increase accuracy of its geolocation services worldwide and provide more granular geographic targeting options for its customers

London, UK – 7th August 2017 – Digital Element, the leading IP Intelligence provider, has today announced that global content discovery platform, Taboola, has chosen its NetAcuity Pulse technology to help identify users’ IP, worldwide.

Taboola is the world’s leading discovery platform, serving 360 billion recommendations to over one billion unique visitors each month. With the web offering a seemingly infinite amount of information, the platform delivers users relevant and interesting material they want to engage with, even if they have not yet thought to search for it. Leading publishers, marketers, and agencies – including NBC, USA Today, and Fox Sports – utilise Taboola’s predictive technology to increase user engagement, monetise traffic, and distribute content to global audiences.

By using Digital Element’s NetAcuity Pulse technology, Taboola will be able to identify each consumer’s location, connection speed, and connection type without the user becoming personally identifiable. Wi-Fi connection type data is particularly valuable when promoting mobile app downloads, as users are more likely to download mobile apps when Wi-Fi is available.

“We’re excited to partner with Digital Element’s NetAcuity, bringing better and more precise ways to recognise users’ IP as we’re constantly looking to improve our mobile services,” said Adam Singolda, CEO and Founder of Taboola.

Digital Element’s NetAcuity Pulse™ uses a network of IP location information derived from mobile devices, billions of on-device-location transactions, and internet routing infrastructure. This more precise – yet privacy-sensitive – global online targeting method is based on where a user is located and connected at a specific point in time, regardless of device. Information can include whether or not the connection is being made through a Wi-Fi network, the user’s point-in-time geographic location, and whether a home or business hotspot is in use. The benefits of using Wi-Fi targeting include increased revenues, better return on investment, stronger brand loyalty, and improved consumer engagement.

“By integrating our IP geolocation data into their platform, Taboola is able to include an accurate IP signal into its algorithms and improve its services,” said Elena Vega, Southern Europe Business Development Director at Digital Element. “We are delighted that, as a global leader in its field, Taboola has chosen to utilise our IP intelligence solutions.”

Taboola joins Digital Element’s portfolio of high-profile clients, which includes: Ströer Group, Microsoft, Adform, Webtrends, Crimtan, Weborama, Rubicon Project, MediaMath, Infectious Media, Cxense, Lotame, Krux and AOL’s ADTECH.
