Yahoo Native Publisher Documentation

Welcome to Yahoo’s Native Publisher!

This guide is intended for Yahoo Native publishers, developers and account managers. It serves as the source of truth for the Native Publisher API and UI.

Use the guide as a toolkit to navigate topics and essential reference material, and to explore implementation details, how-to’s, case studies, FAQs and best practices.

Overview

Yahoo Ad Tech now provides premium Yahoo Native publishers with a new publishing solution. The solution is built on a modern software stack that supports the needs of both strategic partners and premium publishers, as well as Yahoo Ad Tech’s O&O (owned and operated) properties.

Value Proposition

Yahoo Native Publisher lets you perform a wide range of tasks in managing ads displayed on your websites and apps. Some of those tasks include the ability to:

  • Manage ad placements and request specific ad formats.

  • See reports on your ad monetization and performance.

  • Review and block ads that show up on your websites and apps.

To work with the Yahoo Native Publisher UI and API, you’ll need to sign a contract with Yahoo and set up a plan for invoicing via Salesforce, for example. Once you’ve met those requirements, you’ll be able to take advantage of the UI and API to set up ad units, review creatives, block lists, see reports, and so on.

Important

Yahoo Ad Tech O&O properties are not allowed to configure publisher accounts.
