What are auction-type Yahoo! JAPAN Display Ads?

The auction-type display ads, which Yahoo! JAPAN began offering to all advertisers in July 2020, maximises ad performance through optimised ad delivery. This article introduces the features of the new auction-type Yahoo! JAPAN Display Advertising, which has increased the efficiency of ad management.

Yahoo! JAPAN is Japan’s no.1 web portal with 79 billion page views a month1. Furthermore, it’s Japan’s second largest search engine with 18% market share. Although it is second to Google as a search engine, Yahoo! JAPAN has more monthly digital users than Google. To learn more about the platform and our service offering, visit our Yahoo!

The new display ad structure

Display ads are image, video, and text ads that appear in ad spaces on websites. Display ads appear on pages viewed by Internet users who may be interested in the content of the ad.

This is an introduction to the new features of auction-type display ads, a successor to YDN, which has been available to all advertisers since July 2020.

Advertisers are given six types of objectives to choose from. This will allow you to maximise your ad effectiveness by optimising the delivery for the objectives you set.

*CTVR: calculated by the ratio of ad results (conversions) to the number of ad impressions, click-through rate (CTR) x conversion rate (CVR).

*CPA: acquisition cost per conversion, calculated by dividing the cost by the number of conversions.

*Measurement period: comparing actual results for static banners from 1 July 2020 to 31 July 2020 and the same period in 2019.

*Data: accounts with at least 75% of their budgets in transition between 1 July 2020 and 31 July 2020 and with results still occurring between 1 July 2019 and 31 July 2019 (except for one account with an extremely high number of conversions).

*Yahoo! JAPAN does not guarantee the performance for all submissions. In order to get better results, you need to install conversion tags, accumulate conversion data, and simplify your account structure to prevent data dispersion.
