What Is Ad Bidding and How Does It Work?

  • Supply-Side Platform

    The process begins when an internet user accesses a website or web application. Immediately, the publisher of that that site sends a message to a supply-side platform, indicating that an impression is available.
  • Ad Exchange

    The supply-side platform then analyzes the available information about the user - location, search history, age, gender, etc. - and relays this information the ad exchange. The ad exchange is in charge of holding an auction for this particular impression.
  • Ad Spending

    Demand-Side Platform

    Once the ad exchange receives this information, it relays it to the demand-side platform (DSP). If interested, the DSP can then bid on the impression based preset parameters set by the advertiser. The highest bid amount wins the impression, which is then sends the ad back to the publisher to display to the user.
