Whizzco Product Offering
Today, SSP and mediation platforms are everywhere from display banners to video ads, except for content recommendation networks. As a content publisher, you don’t have much choice but to choose only one content network at a time. The issue is no network has much demand to cover worldwide traffic with reasonable rates and to display a high diversity of content.
Some networks are better in India, some have the highest rates in the US, while others have better rates on Mobile than on Desktop.
Whizzco’s widget displays the highest paying campaigns in each country. It pulls all relevant campaigns from the content partners and calculates the best performing campaigns based on Geo, Platform, User ID, CTR, and rates. The results are higher RPM, more diversity, quality control and one dashboard with real-time reports.
Whizzco uses cutting edge technology for optimization and tracking. Their optimization technology is based on machine learning algorithm. The tracking is done in real-time and allows Whizzco to compare the real data (clicks) to the network data and find discrepancies, which have a high impact on revenue.

Whizzco Dashboard Overview
Whizzco provides an intuitive real-time reporting for its publishers which are updated with a lag of 1-2 hours. The dashboard helps you create your own native widgets which can match the style of your website to provide a truly native experience. Additionally, you can place a number of widgets on your site. We would recommend you start with placing three ad units on your website. One widget on the sidebar (1 column x 6 rows), an in-article widget (2 column x 2 row) and an after content native styled widget which can have customized based on your visitor platform (desktop or mobile). This arrangement will help you maximize your ad revenue. Also, you can use a plugin like Q2W3 Fixed Widget which can fix the sidebar widget ad and ensure higher click-throughs.
