A New Publisher Solution: Yahoo Recommends

By Mike Kerns, Senior Vice President of Homepage and Verticals

At Yahoo, we understand the tools digital publishers need to monetize and develop their business. Over the years we have invested in and built world-class technology to support our media solutions. I’m excited to announce today that we are making that technology available to publishers across the web.

Yahoo Recommends is a technology that generates personalized content recommendations and a native advertising experience for users. The tool makes it easier for visitors to discover a publisher’s content and integrates an additional native advertising unit onto their site. We know first-hand that the combination of personalization and premium content works for users, and we’ve created Yahoo Recommends so publishers can put that powerful combination to work too.


Powered by Yahoo’s personalization technology, Yahoo Recommends comes in a variety of shapes and sizes to accommodate any site layout on PC or mobile — ensuring a seamless integration with any site and a fluid, relevant and transparent experience for readers.

To help publishers monetize, Yahoo Recommends includes clearly labeled sponsored ads. Premium and personalized ads featured on Yahoo Recommends are served through Yahoo Gemini, Yahoo’s unified mobile search and native ad marketplace. The launch of Yahoo Recommends represents the first time the marketplace has grown to carry inventory and serve ads beyond Yahoo’s own sites.

Digital publishers like CBSi, VOX Media and Hearst are already using Yahoo Recommends to both make discovery easy for visitors and monetize their sites. “We are pleased to be one of the first media companies to use Yahoo Recommends,” said Jim Lanzone, President and CEO, CBS Interactive. “The personalized content recommendations enable users to discover and engage with even more of CBS Interactive’s premium content.”

Publishers can also manage analytics with detailed reporting to understand how their content and ads are performing. Any publisher can start increasing engagement and revenue with three simple steps:
