Yahoo! Introduces New "Stream Ads & Billboard" Advertising Formats

Yahoo! incorporates new ad format -- Yahoo! Stream Ads for more engaging stream experience as well as Billboard.

Yahoo! CEO Marrisa Mayer to deliver more engaging and effective advertising opportunities announced new advertising format dubbed "Yahoo! Stream Ads."

Stream Ads are the sponsored twin to newsfeed articles and are every bit as personalized and engaging.

"Like with web search, users appreciate complementary, unobtrusive advertising. Advertising can, and should, enhance content discovery in a seamless and effective manner. The more our users spend time with Yahoo!, the more relevant and personalized the content and advertising becomes. We believe that advertising like this can be fun and engaging for users, while also effective for advertisers," Mayer wrote.

In addition, Yahoo is also launching new Billboard to deliver richer content interactions to Yahoo! users.

"For example, a movie trailer that runs on the Billboard could link to more information about the film and cast, and let you buy tickets directly from the ad," Mayer explains.
