Bonus: Full Stack Adblock Recovery vs Paying the Blockers (Reinsertion)

Bryan shares head-to-head case study data from tests tracking revenue from Admiral's full-stack, consent and engagement-based revenue recovery, vs ad reinsertion which leverages the permission of Adblock vendors who "allow" publishers to show ads that are restricted in type, size, format, page density, and more.

Across multiple tests and months, Admiral's full-stack recovery drove 7X more revenue, and 9.3X higher RPMs.


The ad reinsertion approach can be a helpful first step and compliment to engagement-based recovery, (Admiral offers both types of adblock revenue recovery, separately or in combo).

However, ad reinsertion is limited to certain adblock vendors, whether the visitor consents to allow ads through, lower CPM's, lower fill rates, and lower impressions.

Ultimately, it is the publisher industry that pays a "tax" for this option, thus the . This is why it's helpful to understand the approach as "paying the blockers". In this slide, Bryan shares how the reinsertion potential is built from fractions of the full adblock lost revenue pie.
