Website categorization and URL database solutions for advertising network providers.

Online brand safety, security and protection are arguably the most important metrics of success to online advertisers. Ad placements on inappropriate web pages can negatively impact brand appeal, leading to lost revenue. Online advertising technology providers have strict requirements to win over advertiser sentiment by providing improved transparency, advertiser brand safety and accurate ad placements across websites written in a wide array of languages. Online advertising technology providers are pressured to conform to new industry standards established by organizations such as the Interactive Advertising Bureau™ (IAB) for contextual taxonomy and in-depth content categorization at the sub-path and page level of social networking, blogging and other popular websites. To keep pace with advertiser demands, continually changing taxonomic guidelines and looming online regulations, online advertising technology providers require a URL database that addresses the dynamics of ever-changing web content and continually evolving web threats, in order to ensure online advertiser brand safety with accurate ad targeting so that ad placements are not delivered onto malicious websites, or web pages with inappropriate, illegal or non-standard content.

The zveloDB® URL database and zveloCAT™ content categorization engine can be evaluated for free and integrated by online advertising technology providers to provide optimum online ad placement verification and attribution, brand safety and security services, social media monitoring and reporting tools, big data analytics applications and more. The zveloDB URL database supports a range of category sets and has dedicated category sets for objectionable online content (adult, porn, hate, criminal, vices, etc.) and offers instant detection of malicious or compromised URLs, as well as revisit logic to recategorize legitimate websites that go from infected to clean. With zvelo’s automated URL categorization capabilities, backed by quality assurance provided by over 150 multi-lingual Web Analysts Quality Assurance, changing content on websites can be monitored, revisited and recategorized in real-time to ensure accurate ad verification and inventory vetting services, to help ensure online brand safety, security and protection.
