Yahoo DSP expands offerings with new identity testing capabilities for insight gathering

SINGAPORE — Yahoo announced first-to-market testing capabilities for its identity suite, Yahoo Identity Solutions, directly in the Yahoo DSP. The move helps advertisers gain valuable media insights and prepare their businesses today to optimize and measure campaigns amid third-party cookie deprecation properly.

Advertisers can now easily test their campaign’s future-proofing strategies in a simulated environment directly within the Yahoo DSP across all web browsers and in-app inventory. The test enables advertisers to remove cookies across all identity-related use cases such as frequency capping, targeting, conversion attribution, and reach metrics to understand how Yahoo Identity Solutions can support their programmatic media.

In a simple A/B test, advertisers can view a control line running on the web and in-app inventory as it exists today – inclusive of all third-party cookies and identifiers – and a test line that runs across the same environments without third-party cookies and device IDs, which leverages Yahoo Identity Solutions for targeting and buying. By juxtaposing control and test campaigns, advertisers can get a better sense of future advertising trends, thereby optimizing campaigns and enhancing overall outcomes. Identity testing can be run using a variety of audiences, including demographic, income, interest, lookalike, and predictive.


“As cookie deprecation quickly approaches, advertisers are looking to easily and accurately test solutions without having to change the way they buy or introduce friction into their campaigns,” said Elizabeth Herbst-Brady, Chief Revenue Officer at Yahoo. “These new testing capabilities and our continued enhancement of Yahoo Identity Solutions reflect our unwavering dedication to providing advertisers with accurate insights and measurable business outcomes.”

Dan Richardson, Director of Data & Insights, AUSEA at Yahoo, emphasized the significance of identity testing: “These new testing features move Identity from back end to front and center, right there in your campaign setup, giving advertisers more control and a bigger impact. This underscores Yahoo’s dedication to a privacy-centric and results-driven ecosystem in the APAC region, ensuring advertisers achieve their business objectives with precision and adaptability.”

Yahoo takes an integrated approach to identity across every digital environment. Yahoo Identity Solutions, including Yahoo ConnectID and Next-Gen Solutions, account for addressable and non-addressable inventory. Yahoo ConnectID for addressable inventory is powered by consent-based, first-party, and partner data from Yahoo, and today reaches over 100 million authenticated users across the Asia-Pacific region. Next-Gen Solutions is an AI-built identity solution that leverages Yahoo ConnectID users as a panel audience and drives relevance and reach within non-addressable environments.

Yahoo will continue to support the future of identity, enabling advertisers to meet their business objectives and drive a privacy-centric ecosystem. Along with Yahoo Identity Solutions, Yahoo will adopt industry solutions to drive a holistic approach and strong results for clients. Yahoo advertisers can test Google Privacy Sandbox APIs, which will offer additional signals for reaching their customers on Chrome as third-party cookies are deprecated.
