Sovrn ties for top overall score in US Index for second month in a row

October 26, 2016, BOULDER, Colo.—Sovrn®, advocate and partner to independent publishers, who represent more than 80,000 websites, has received the #1 rank for viewability in the Pixalate US Seller Trust Index for September. Moreover, Sovrn is tied for the overall Seller Trust top spot for second consecutive month.  The US Seller Trust Index is an independent quality ranking for digital advertising.

“Providing publishers with viewability solutions that advertisers value was a key reason we acquired Signal earlier this year,” said Walter Knapp, CEO of Sovrn. “High viewability ad units and engaged readers attract more advertising dollars for Publishers. We’ve invested and prioritized highly viewable inventory and made it available programmatically, at scale with our Audience On Tap program. The Pixalate rankings are clear validation that our focus on viewability is paying real dividends for our publishers.”

Pixalate’s Global Seller Trust Index analyzes more than 100 billion monthly ad impressions and delivers ratings based upon inventory quality and ad performance, along with traditional reach ranking.
