First results of Parallel Bidding: 30% ARPDAU increase

After eight months of tests and experiments, we’re thrilled to be the first to open the discussion share real results of Parallel Bidding.

Header bidding, the revolutionary technology that reshaped the web marketing landscape a few years ago, is the buzzword of the moment in the mobile market. Everyone is wondering whether it could work the same way for the in-app environment.

At Appodeal, we were eager to reveal the superpower of this acclaimed technology, so we developed Parallel Bidding, our very own solution to in-app header bidding. After eight months of tests and experiments, we’re thrilled to be the first to open the discussion share real results of Parallel Bidding.
