On Analytics

by Christopher Reid |
| 0 Comments

Before we get going here, I’m going to provide some context around how I view digital publishing. I’m an engineer, and Sortable got into the publishing industry by launching a number of product comparison websites, powered by technology we created. Digital publishing is full of inefficiencies, and we were fortunate to have the engineering resources internally to develop solutions through technology and, as we pivoted, start offering these solutions to others. Publishing is both an art and a science, and publishers need to give as much attention to the science (engineering) as they do to the art (content and marketing). I believe that solving engineering problems, or focusing on the science, of this industry improves the ecosystem for everyone and that building technical solutions to common challenges enables the artists to do their best work.

Sortable Analytics is here! We’re excited about the launch of our comprehensive dashboard and how it can empower publishers and make their lives easier.

We don’t think siloing the three most important areas of your publishing business makes sense, and so the first thing we want to do is help publishers break down those barriers. Enter Sortable Analytics - a platform purpose-built to surface content, marketing, and revenue data in a unified dashboard to help publishers optimize both their yield and ‘non-yield yield’.

Back in 2015, we walked through a State of the Ad Blocking Nation, an article describing ad blocking, its adoption, and how it might affect businesses that rely on ads for revenue.

Auction Type First-price Second-price
Auction winner Highest bidder Highest bidder
Winner pays Winning bid price Second highest price


The current industry standard is the second-price auction: each bidder submits their price for the impression. The highest bid wins, but only pays the price (plus some minor surplus) of the second highest bid.
