Our first step was to identify and fix an issue with Google Double Click (DCM). The platform had mysteriously stopped bidding. The Adapex team enabled Safe Frames and implemented ads.txt Guru to make sure that the site’s ads.txt was always up to date. Once we got the DCM issue worked out, we also added several new networks to the header bidder stack via hybrid header bidding to increase demand for PhantasyTour.com inventory, without impacting pageload speed. We continue to use the ads.txt guru on the site for ongoing updates, and we are working on improving yield with a close eye on Google Core Web Vitals, thanks to Magma™, our onpage console.
In addition, we implemented our wrapper technology, Merlin™ in order to implement Lazy Loading, Smart Refresh, and Device Detection for mobile-responsive pages. This sophisticated technology is easily implemented and allows for ongoing optimizations to continually improve performance.
PhantasyTour.com was pleased to see that:
In short, while COVID heavily impacted visits and pageviews on sites like PhantasyTour, with Adapex, PhantasyTour nonetheless experienced year-on-year revenue growth of 217%.
RPM and RPS KPIs saw uplifts of 227% and 203% respectively. This resulted in a revenue increase of 217% year over year. Both AdX and the Header Bidding networks delivered higher CPM performance. As we continue to work closely with the PhantasyTour team, the first quarter of 2022 looks very positive when compared with Q1 2021; revenue grew 34% and CPMs are 19% higher.
“We are extremely pleased with our results since joining forces with Adapex. We are seeing triple-digit revenue growth for the same traffic level. Their M4 Tech Suite™ offers so many important features that allow us, and them, to optimize and increase yield on an ongoing basis. Their technology, paired with service, is the best partnership configuration we could have formed.”
Paul Glace, Founder, Phantasy Tour
For years, Adapex has been our trusted partner — their experts are always there for us and feel like a part of our team. I have confidence that their techniques and products will keep our revenues growing strong. Highly recommend!
We couldn’t find a better partner to work with.
We’ve been working with Adapex for a while and they consistently offer great support and present new opportunities to generate more revenue every month.
The entire Adapex team has quickly become key players in our overall revenue optimization strategy. They’re fast, responsive, proactive, and most importantly good at what they do. I am beyond happy I made the decision to make the change to Adapex.
“Adapex more than doubled our programmatic revenue year-over-year. This fact speaks for itself; what I would like to call out is the exceptional level of attention and support that they provide to their clients. It would be a true challenge to find a more responsive or knowledgeable team anywhere in the industry.”
