The mission of PubGalaxy is to help its publishers achieve a sustained increase in revenue earned from display ad inventory, tapping the complete capabilities of the RTB ecosystem. Their true potential lies in hand-picking valuable assets from the programmatic environment and putting them in competition with traditional demand, so as to ensure the most sustainable and strong ad performance.

A brief about PubGalaxy

PubGalaxy is part of one of the largest and most influential tech publishers, which was launched in the year 2001. Their strategy is probably one of the best when it comes to web inventory monetization. They aim to enhance revenue from ad space on websites by linking these spaces with some of the best products and services in the market through a single platform.

Since PubGalaxy was founded, after years of trial and error in the domain of ad monetization, the company has grown to be a completely new and unique solution that has made them leaders in the industry.

It currently has an audience base of 100 million readers every month.

How PubGalaxy benefits its publishers

PubGalaxy aims to monetize mobile, desktop and video inventory, permitting its publishers to monetize all of the web traffic across a number of platforms (tablet, mobile and desktop devices). The solution offers its publishers reach to the RTB ecosystem through a single platform. It profits its publishers by making different demand sources compete with each other for a publisher’s inventory. They tap the potentials of both traditional static demand and programmatic ad exchanges so as to extract the best assets from both the worlds, resulting in high CPM rates for the publishers.

PubGalaxy collects demand from a number of sources, but keeps adding and removing advertising partners, in order to ensure that only the best performing ads gain access to the inventory of the publishers. PubGalaxy achieves an average eCPM increase for its publishers ranging between 15% and 93%. It offers a reporting system and API, as well as a 24/7 support system.
