Where does PubGears sit?

A gap in monetization

PubGears identified a gap in monetization... It lies between a publisher's direct sales channel and their 100% fill solution. Publishers (on average) miss roughly 30% of monthly revenue by simply filling at recommended floor prices set by alternate publisher platforms. Partner with PubGears and bump revenue by 30% overnight.

PubGears Solution

Our Awesome Technology

Unlike most publisher facing platforms, PubGears has no direct advertiser relationships. This enables PubGears to maintain our focus on publisher interests 100% of the time. Our XOP (exchange optimization platform) technology plugs directly into all major digital exchanges. PubGears utilizes three strategies across the XOP technology; proprietary trading methodologies, inventory positioning and unilateral data access. The result is guaranteed higher return on publisher assets.
