DoubleClick Ad Exchange team in a November 29 blog post announced that starting on December 1st, two important initiatives will go live to bring more mobile inventory, in the mobile-specific 320x50 ad size, to the DoubleClick Ad Exchange.
"First, buyers will be able to access AdMob in-app mobile inventory from AdMob publishers and application developers." And, second, buyers will be able to "access mobile web inventory from Ad Exchange publishers who have opted-in mobile web inventory for the 320x50 size," the team blogged.
"As publisher participation in these initiatives grows, we expect the inventory pool for in-app and mobile web inventory that's specific to the 320x50 ad size to expand as well."
"With the DoubleClick Ad Exchange, this new mobile inventory can be purchased via RTB or the UI. Ad Exchange buyers who are interested in the new 320x50 ad size should be sure to share their interest with their account manager," stated DAE team.
