Context

For a description of these categories, see Context. You can click a category to see its subcategories.

Custom

Custom categories allow for specific and granular custom targeting. Custom categories can include anything from brand marketing to sensitive topics and may be requested when the required category is not already available in your account taxonomy.

To request a custom category, provide a brief description and URL examples of the content that you want to target or avoid. Your account manager will review the request and advise you on how to implement the custom category.

Note

Note: In Verification reporting, custom categories will include all the categories in the account for all advertisers. These categories will appear by category ID (without names) to prevent exposing different advertiser strategies.

Weather

The Weather data point is available for customers of creative targeting and post-buy verification. The only difference is that rather than page-based (like contextual categories), weather categories are based on geo-level data that Sizmek matches with the IP address of the bid request (the page requesting that someone buy the ad space). For complete information, see Weather.
