Abstract

A user can view creative from multiple locations and multiple devices. The user can also adjust their privacy settings on their browser to accept or reject cookies and/or have anti-spam/spyware software that regularly deletes cookies. The enhanced counting method uses the patented first-party cookie technology to track users across access channels and across privacy settings on their browser. Additional steps to increase the accuracy of reach and frequency reporting have been developed. One step is to write a value into the log file that is a combination of the IP address and browser type. A second step is to leverage the first-party technology and capture a registration ID from a secondary advertiser system and write that to the log file as well. These two steps enable the generation of reports that: 1) provide more accurate reach and frequency calculations; 2) enable cross device reporting on users; 3) enable multi-location reporting; 4) enable reporting on the number of users that don't accept or regularly delete cookies.

Description

Strengthen advertising service tolerance to determine

Technical field

The system that implementation relate generally to described herein is used for counting unique beholder of Internet advertisement, method and process.Such as, implementation relates to and determines that whether unique user exposes to advertisement and/or mutual with advertisement from single or multiple device (working computer, home computer, flat computer, smart phone etc.) and/or multiple position (work, family, other) one or many.In addition, these gray how many clients of expression can be produced do not accept or delete the report of cookie termly.

Background technology

Advertisement lasts ground via the Internet increases and evolution fast.Explorer technology has evolved to and has comprised safety and privacy and consider and new equipment expansion.Internet advertisement method of counting usually depend on follow the tracks of user the Internet cookie with determine they how many times expose to advertisement.More particularly, method of counting usually depends on third party the Internet cookie and follows the tracks of, because most of tracking company uses the cookie in their own domain to provide (serve) Internet advertisement and tracking performance.In many cases, the information from advertiser site territory is transmitted to Advertisement Server website territory to be used to target advertisements object via third party cookie.Internet user is becoming the object of data transmission and the transmission more and more understood when not having they know and permit.Such as, if access www (point) Domainl (point) com, then will obtain by Domainl.com advertisement with the various third party cookie of tracking partner setting and by their website partner and many Domainl.com first party cookie of built-in system setting.Responsively, browser manufacturer strengthened to cookie control access with make user can: 1) stop all cookie; 2) third party cookie is stopped; 3) all cookie are allowed.Some mobile browsers are set to acquiescently stop third party cookie and are only allowed first party cookie.Standard the Internet advertising practices uses third party cookie to count the coverage pattern that Internet advertisement exposes and these expose and frequency.The problem run into when using third party cookie to count advertisement viewing is: third party cookie viewed device, auxiliary routine or user oneself can stop or delete.When third party cookie is stopped or deletes, coverage pattern and frequency counting accuracy can be over-evaluated/are underestimated respectively significantly.Enjoyably, compared with counting with third party cookie, first party cookie counting is less stopped by automatic cookie and deletes, because user feels more comfortable for the cookie of the company known from them and trust.In addition, automatic cookie delete program (such as, Anti-Spyware) is paid close attention to known tracking company and usually ignores first party cookie.

The increase of digital device and the appearance of new only first party browser are provided with following trend: the validity limiting traditional third party's measuring technique and the dealer in the ecosystem depending on them, because they do not control up-stream system.Research shows three times of ascendant trend-be greater than now traditional coverage pattern and the frequency measuring defect all the time.The same factor affecting measuring technique also affects performance measurement-with the association of the response of similar speed display advertisement.

Summary of the invention

Because the privacy strengthened is considered, newer explorer and counter-espionage product make easier acceptance and the deletion controlling the Internet cookie on their browser of user.Such as, explorer can be set to:

1) all cookie are accepted;

2) refuse third party cookie, but accept first party cookie;

3) all cookie are refused.

Internet advertisement business uses coverage pattern to determine, and how many users have seen that their advertisement calculates to carry out rate of return on investment (ROI).

Due to the undulatory property of the third party the Internet cookie that problem described herein causes, the coverage pattern calculating of being measured the third party cookie that guide version 1 (on Dec 8th, 2008) (its full content is incorporated herein by reference) describes by interactive advertisement office (IAB) audient coverage pattern is becoming more and more unreliable.

First party cookie can refuse or delete by viewed device, but unlikely deleted, because they associate with particular advertisement business, but not associates with unknown company or third party's Advertisement Server.

In one implementation, the process that coverage pattern and/or frequency computation part are provided is provided for.In a specific implementation mode, such as, multi-step process calculates by adding every coverage pattern of improving continuously below:

1) user ID;

2) the alternative user ID of journal file; With

3) user from advertiser's register system registers ID.

In one implementation, a kind of system and method for determining the tolerance relevant to advertising service is provided.

In one example in which, a kind of method comprises: receive permanent browser information at Advertisement Server place from client machine system, wherein in gray territory, arranges described permanent browser information and Advertisement Server operates in gray territory; (i) system information relevant to client machine system and (ii) and at least one the user-dependent register information of client machine system is received from gray territory; And determine advertisement metrics based at least one in permanent browser information and (i) system information and (ii) register information.

In another example, a kind of system comprises: advertisement services server, be configured to: receive permanent browser information from client machine system, the permanent browser information of described client machine system is wherein set in gray territory and advertisement services server operates in gray territory; (i) system information relevant to client machine system and (ii) and at least one the user-dependent register information of client machine system is received from gray territory; And determine advertisement metrics based at least one in permanent browser information and (i) system information and (ii) register information.

In another implementation, provide a kind of browser and/or device information of using to identify the system and method for user and/or device.

In one example in which, a kind of method comprises: receive permanent browser information at Advertisement Server place from client machine system, wherein in gray territory, arranges described permanent browser information and Advertisement Server operates in gray territory; (i) system information relevant to client machine system and (ii) and at least one the user-dependent register information of client machine system is received from gray territory; And identify the user on client machine system based at least one in permanent browser information and (i) system information and (ii) register information.

In another example, a kind of system comprises: advertisement services server, is configured to: receive permanent browser information from client machine system, wherein in gray territory, arranges described permanent browser information and Advertisement Server operates in gray territory; (i) system information relevant to client machine system and (ii) and at least one the user-dependent register information of client machine system is received from gray territory; And identify the user on client machine system based at least one in permanent browser information and (i) system information and (ii) register information.

In another implementation, provide a kind of advertising service information that uses to provide the cache systems (such as, storer or other data-carrier store high-speed cache) of one or more advertisement.

In one example in which, a kind of method comprises: identify customer location; At least one attribute of recording user position; User identifier is imported from backup system; At least one attribute of one or more log recording and at least one attribute of customer location are compared; And relatively arrange described multiple log recording based on attribute.

In another example, a kind of system comprises: one or more device, is configured to: identify customer location; By at least one attribute record of customer location in non-transient data daily record; User identifier is imported from auxiliary non-transient data storage system; At least one attribute of one or more log recording and at least one attribute of customer location are compared; And relatively arrange described multiple log recording based on attribute.

There is provided this summary of the invention with the selection of the concept further described in a specific embodiment below according to reduced form introduction.This summary of the invention is not intended key feature or the essential feature of the theme of Identification Demand protection, is also not intended to the scope for the claimed theme of restriction.By the various implementation of more specifically writing below and as is furthermore shown in the figures and as in claims the embodiment of implementation that defines, the further feature of claimed theme, details, effectiveness and advantage will become clear.

Embodiment

Various first party Advertisement serving technology is described and its full content is incorporated herein by reference in the title being presented to the people such as Neal on March 8th, 2011 the 7th, 904, No. 520 United States Patent (USP)s that are " First Party Advertisement Serving ".As described herein, these technology can contribute to the measurement of the advertising service improved, the determination of such as advertisement coverage pattern and frequency.Such as, the ad counting based on the cookie arranged in gray first party territory can be used to determine the various measurements relevant to advertising service.

Although first party measuring system unlikely may be subject to the impact that cookie stops or deletes as third party's measuring system in many instances, but a kind of measurement model is provided in one implementation, when measuring situation and becoming more and more challenging, this measurement model systematically comprises standardization measurement capability.

In some implementations, there is provided a kind of model, this model comprises one or more factor of affecting measurement accuracy and is provided for understanding the performance of their advertisement, makes the empirical method of one or more stalwartnesses that effective ownership (attribution) and investment in media determine for advertiser.In one implementation, such as, producing confirmation method provides the standardization of leap response dimension below to measure:

Coverage pattern and frequency

Media are overlapping

Device is overlapping

Closed-loop measuring and response ownership

The counting way (interactive advertisement office (IAB), MMA) of usual acceptance uses new/old cookie Technical Follow-Up user to carry out coverage pattern and frequency counting.In this technology, if there is no cookie, then arrange new cookie and count impression and coverage pattern, but this technology is not found the former impression linked to carry out the tracking of many impression.But if there is cookie, then the state of cookie is changed to old and counts impression and coverage pattern subsequently.This technology also in journal file to return find before advertisement exposure to carry out many impression count.This technology makes advertising service agency can follow the tracks of advertisement exposure for particular browser and frequency, calculates to allow the tactic ad rotation that performed by publisher's website and rate of return on investment (ROI).If cookie is stopped by any one process in above-mentioned process or deletes, then coverage pattern quantity will be much higher, because new cookie seems unique subscriber, and number of frequencies will be underestimated, because seem that advertisement is displayed to multiple user instead of is only shown to a user.Such as, the people being set to browser refuse cookie sees that in two different Internet surfing sessions same advertisement will be counted as two people's (coverage pattern) for twice, everyone in these two people sees this advertisement once (frequency), and they should be counted as a people with frequency two.

In one implementation, the new/old cookie setting of supplementary defective standard and coverage pattern computing is come by comprising every interpolation below:

1) identiflication number of the journal file of first party cookie is added to;

2) the ID value in order to count advertisement more accurately in situation below set by the system based on auxiliary ad-vertisement trade station point:

A) there is the user of the browser being set to stop or delete cookie or the Rogue Anti-Spyware performing same operation;

B) user on different device (computing machine, flat computer, smart phone);

C) the user of diverse location.

definition

Discre value is below only the example of value that can use in one or more system described here or process.

User identifier (such as, User_ID) is the standard cookie with the ID arranged on a web browser by Advertisement Server.In one implementation, such as, user identifier (User_ID) comprises the combination of server numbering and the serial ID produced by the algorithm in each server.

Substitute user identifier (such as, Alt_User_ID) client apparatus is provided to (such as, by tcp/ip communication together with HTTP head), and create in one or more journal file and substitute user identifier (such as, according to IP address and user agent's character string (such as, operating system, browser brand and version)).In one implementation, such as, alternative user identifier can comprise device and/or browser " fingerprint ", and described device and/or browser " fingerprint " comprise the information that can be used to be identified in device and/or the browser that device uses.Such as, the non-limiting information that can be used to " fingerprint " of apparatus for assembling and/or browser can comprise such as user agent and (comprise browser type (such as, Internet Explorer, Chrome, Apple Safari, Firefox etc., version, operating system), exist plug-in unit, font, screen resolution, color depth (such as, 16,32 than top grade), computer installation, Internet Protocol address, MAC Address information, or the out of Memory that can obtain from device and/or browser or derive.

Registration identifier (such as, Registration_ID) is set to first party cookie by one or more website side system, and can by other system read/write in first party domain space.In one implementation, such as, customer management system (CMS) utilizes user's register information to create the cookie with unique customer identifier.

situation (Fig. 1)

Fig. 1 shows example ad service operations environment.In this environment, one or more device 100 (such as, but be not limited to, the working computer illustrated, home computer, flat computer and intelligent telephone equipment) be connected to various websites on network (such as, the Internet) via the browser 150 of operation on described one or more device 100.Such as, device 100 can be connected to publisher website 200, Advertisement Server website 250 and/or advertiser website 300 via browser 150.

Fig. 3 provides comparing of first party advertisement service system and third party's advertisement service system.Difference between first party system and Third party system is: first party Advertisement Server (550) represents advertiser (600) and carries out operating and can at read and write cookie in the advertisement quotient field (Domain1.com) or subdomain (ad.Domain1.com).In third party's advertising service model, third party's Advertisement Server (850) arranges cookie and does not represent advertiser (900) work in its oneself territory (Domain3.com).Third party cookie Advertisement Server is aimed to delete by many Anti-Spywares, and stopped and refusal by third party cookie.

Method described herein promotes to realize the workflow of individual player and advertiser and/or the workflow between agency (such as, TPAS) and publisher.Activity report system comprises: the user of surfing on web, be supplied to the advertisement of the browser of user, by the cookie of the browser of user/accept from the browser of user, refuse or delete, the database of the file of the record related user cookie of tool and advertising message, and use cookie follow the tracks of user and report the coverage pattern of those advertisements and the reporting system of frequency.

In the browser of user, there is the privacy making user can refuse all cookie, only refusal third party cookie and/or accept all cookie and control.Also exist and identify third party Data Collection cookie and the anti-spam and the spying program that arrange to delete them.

The cookie that Internet advertisement is placed on a web browser usually controls and makes advertising service agency can control user to watch which advertisement.Explorer continues evolution, and continues to introduce the new equipment that the Internet can be utilized to access.The function of cookie type is also evolved to file and database, as proof, but is not limited to, and uses Adobe Flash tMlocal shared object and Microsoft Silverlight tMthe popularity of the increase of the company of " separate, stored (isolated storage) " ability.The advertisement principle (such as, the frequency of advertisement exposure) of usual acceptance is employed to guarantee that user can not expose too much to same advertisement by these technology, therefore reduces the possibility that advertisement damages.

In report side, the process of advertisement is just being provided to catch unique cookie ID and other user system data (IP address, browser type etc.) and advertising message (advertised name, activity, website, width, website part etc.).Journal file is processed to produce report, thus shows to user and provide how many advertisements and the action (click, purchase etc.) showing the coverage pattern (unique subscriber) of those advertisements and the frequency of those advertisements subsequently and performed by user.Cookie can be used to the coverage pattern and the frequency that control advertisement, to help to optimize mixing and the ROI increasing described activity.If cookie is rejected or deletes, then this make coverage pattern and frequency report not too accurate because provide many new cookie and these new cookie are counted as first impression and unique subscriber subsequently.Third party cookie is usually rejected more than first party cookie and/or deletes.But first party cookie technology can be used to produce coverage pattern and frequency report more accurately, and this process of easily extensible is to comprise extra attribute, thus makes this process even more accurate.

Example implementations (Fig. 3) can be understood when user's access has website (such as, the Domainl.com) of first party advertisement relation with first party Advertisement Server.First party relation make first party Advertisement Server can under First-Party Model (ad.Domainl.com) read and write cookie, the relation data (ad.domainl.com=high_value) that can store in their cookie to utilize advertising company, thus represent them relevant advertisements is provided.When user accesses Domainl.com website and logins, they receive Domainl.com and register cookie (that is, Domainl.com=RegID=1234).When user subsequently on web surfing and enter first party Advertisement Server represent Domainl.com the website of advertisement is provided time, first party Advertisement Server will receive the content of Domainl.com cookie tank and can represent Domainl.com and utilize any data be stored in cookie.In this situation, particular advertisement can be supplied to by the activity provided from first party Advertisement Server knows that they are users of high level (high-value) registered user of the registration of advertiser site.If user worries online privacy, then their browser can be set to by they:

1) all cookie are refused;

2) only third party cookie is refused;

3) all cookie are accepted.

refuse all cookie

If user refuses all cookie, then they will send new cookie from first party Advertisement Server (ad.domainl.com) or Domainl.com at every turn ask, and first party Advertisement Server journal file will catch new User_ID at every turn, as long as but user logins from consistent IP address and browser, just constructs identical Alt_User_ID.In this case, can trace into: this user returns, and in fact Advertisement Server or advertiser can produce about customer location, operating system and browser type and the report of quantity of user not accepting or delete termly cookie.

only refuse third party cookie

If user refuses third party cookie but accepts first party cookie, then there are some situations: 1) when user accesses Domainl.com website, user will receive first party cookie.2) when user access not same area website time, user will be regarded as third party and can read first party territory cookie (Ad.domainl.com), but any cookie write will be rejected.When arranging cookie on first party territory, journal file will catch " new " cookie, and continues to count exactly each third party's advertising service on external domain.It if external domain is seen by user first, then Domainl.com cookie can not be set, because will be regarded as third party cookie for external domain.This difference can be very important, because if arrange this cookie in first party territory (ad.Domainl.com), even if then browser is set to not accept third party cookie, also can read them in third-party domain (200).Journal file also will be utilized the old cookie of new-> and upgrades and correctly will count coverage pattern in this situation, make first party advertising service process for report and optimization object more accurate.

accept all cookie

If user accepts all cookie, then third party's advertising service and counting process process with first party advertising service and count will be similar, but when user accesses web from diverse location or device, may there is counting difference.Such as, user can login from work (110), then surfing and watch advertisement on web, then goes home, logins and watch advertisement on different computing machines (120), flat computer (130) or smart phone (140).In this situation, even if having viewed same advertisement and should be counted as coverage pattern one and frequency two in two systems, standard coverage pattern and frequency counting process are also by counting coverage pattern 2 and frequency one.

But, in various implementations, use the first party system of Alt_User_ID will see different User_ID and different al t_User_ID, but see identical Registration_ID, and the user of spanning position (IP address) and system (working computer, home computer, flat computer or smart phone) can be linked.In this situation, strengthening counting process can correctly count coverage pattern and frequency, and standard third party counting technology may be different significantly.

In various first party implementation, new coverage pattern and frequency counting process work and catch multiple data point to help count accuracy under first party cookie mode, no matter be that its browser is set to accept cookie or refusal cookie by user, there is the cookie performed by user or anti-spam/espionage network and delete action, or they use multi-form access (such as, working computer, home computer, flat computer and smart phone).

exemplary operation

Fig. 1 describes example ad service environment.In this implementation, advertisement service system represents advertiser's work and produces advertisement tag, and this advertisement tag is not published person's ad system subsequently and is placed in purchase Media inventory (inventory).When user utilizes their browser (150) surfing to webpage, webpage can have many callings to different server for content.When asking advertisement tag, request is sent to Advertisement Server (250) by browser together with many heads.These head Help Viewers and host server determine providing the best way of asked information.User agent's character string is included in one of head provided from browser.Information is below supplied to server by user agent's character string from Microsoft Internet Explorer 9 acquiescently:

1) Apply Names and version (" Mozilla/5.0 ")

2) compatible mark (" compatibility ")

3) version token (" MSIE 9.0 ")

4) platform token (Windows NT 6.1 ")

5) (user agent: Mozilla/5.0 is (compatible for Trident token (" Trident/5.0 "); MSIE 9.0; Windows NT 6.1; Trident/5.0).

In many browsers, user agent's character string can be changed, but user needs to be skilled technically, or working procedure is to perform this change.Usually, most of user does not know that these user agent's character strings exist and never will can change them.In typical web surfing process, user will from one of their system (working computer (110), home computer (120), flat computer (130), smart phone (140) etc.) (100) accessed web page, publisher website (200) will send the HTTP head that can comprise advertisement tag, its HTTP header information is sent to advertisement deployment server (250) by instruction browser by described advertisement tag, and asks advertisement.Because advertisement tag has " main frame: media.Domainl.com ", so browser will send any cookie in the cookie tank of the Domainl.com that can be used to counting, coverage pattern and frequency computation part along user agent.

Fig. 6 illustrates the exemplary operation of the process 600 for determining the data relevant to AD service operation.Such as, process 600 can be performed to determine statistics, such as, but not limited to, impression frequency, coverage pattern, website are overlapping, path analysis etc.In implementation shown in Figure 6, such as, this process produces source data daily record in operation 602.Such as, source data daily record can be included in such as the whole or subset of the Transaction Information of collecting in activity or the advertising service process in special domain.Such as, Transaction Information comprises impression, clicks and send it back the whole or subset of display information (ping).These data also can comprise the name-value pair from raw data.Source data daily record can be loaded in analytic system (such as, middle table (staging table)) subsequently in operation 604.In a specific implementation mode, such as, data are organized as set to analyze.Such as, can around one or more advertising campaign (such as, according to movable ID), such as first party advertising service advertising service territory (such as, according to territory ID), around Start Date, Close Date and/or date range or according to contribute to analyze any other set tissue organize this set.

Analytic system analyzes source data daily record (such as, from middle table) in every way.In operation 606, such as, the cookie that analytic system describes for the new/old cookie example of such as above reference standard performs data analysis.In operation 608, analytic system performs data analysis for alternative user ID data (such as, as above can viewed device or client apparatus be used for identifying the data of user).In operation 610, analytic system performs data analysis for the registration recognition information (such as, registering ID) that can read in the first party domain space in first party advertisement scheme and/or write.

The result of operation 606 is compared to create standardized data collection by the result with operation 608 and/or 610 subsequently in operation 612.Such as, standardized data collection can be used to the example that identification cookie (or other permanent browser information) may be stopped or delete.Relative to the new/old cookie analytical plan of standard, therefore standardized data provides the measurement of improvement.

Importantly, it is noted that operation 608 or operation 610 can be executed independently, or can both executable operations 608 and 610, and the result of result with operation 606 is compared.Therefore, the result that standard cookie analyzes (operation 606) can be substituted analysis (operating 608) that user profile performs and/or uses the analysis of registration recognition information and executing (operating 610) to compare with using.

Fig. 7 illustrates that multiple identifier is used to aim at the example implementations that will be provided to the advertising service environment of the advertisement of user.Such as, this advertising service environment can use user identifier described herein, two or more and other identifier any amount of (comprising the derivant of these identifiers or other identifier) substituted in user identifier and registered user's identifier.In example shown in Figure 7, such as, one or more device 100A (such as, but be not limited to, the working computer illustrated, home computer, flat computer and intelligent telephone equipment) various websites on network (such as, the Internet) are connected to via the browser 150A operated on described one or more device 100A.Such as, device 100A can be connected to publisher website 200A, Advertisement Server website 250A and/or advertiser website via browser 150A.

In this specific examples, the render engine that rendering server 450A performs provides placeholder label in the browser 150A of one or more device 100A.If first party information (cookie or other data element) to be present on device 100A (such as, be present in browser 150A), then first party information (cookie or other data element) is identified and is provided to Advertisement Server 400A.Advertisement Server 400A access memory cache server 250A (or other data storage device, such as database, disk storage etc.), to mate one or more element and unique (or half is unique) browser details in fingerprint of first party information.

Memory cache server 250A and/or Advertisement Server 400A identifies and/or selects two or more identifiers (such as, user identifier, alternative user identifier are (such as, browser fingerprint) and/or register information identifier), for the one or more advertisements identified from advertiser database 300A or other external data provider data set 350A, to be supplied to Advertisement Server 400A, thus aim at engine/creativeness selection decision and measurement count accuracy.Advertisement Server 400A determine whether by any additionally or replace identifier and/or first party data element and provide and be back to browser 150A, to be used to relatively more relevant and/or to aim at information accurately, thus for aiming at and creatively selecting to provide advertisement.

Fig. 8 illustrates that browser and/or device fingerprint identifier are used to aim at another example implementations that will be provided to the advertising service environment of the advertisement of user.As described herein, fingerprint identifier can be used alone or use together with other identifier one or more.In example shown in Figure 8, such as, one or more device 100B (such as, but be not limited to, the working computer illustrated, home computer, flat computer and intelligent telephone equipment) various websites on network (such as, the Internet) are connected to via the browser 150B operated on described one or more device 100B.Such as, device 100B can be connected to publisher website 200B, Advertisement Server website 250BA and/or advertiser website via browser 150B.

In this specific examples, as described above with reference to Figure 7, the render engine that rendering server performs provides placeholder label in the browser 150B of one or more device 100B.Browser and/or device fingerprint elements are used to unique (or half is unique) the fingerprint key (such as, universal key) creating browser 150B and/or device 100B.Such as, fingerprint key can be stored in browser 150B, or this element can be provided to advertisement/meta data server 250B, and advertisement/meta data server 250B can use the establishment of this element for one or more keys of advertising service process.Fingerprint key can be general unique key, or enough different so that the extensive sampling in order to provide the object of advertisement to be statistically enough to discriminating device and/or browser.

Except fingerprint key or fingerprint elements, if there is first party data element (such as, cookie or other data), then first party data element also can be forwarded to advertisement/meta data server 250B.Advertisement/meta data server 250B selects universal key for aiming at or fingerprint key data record from advertiser database 300B or from any other third party's metadata provider 350B.New aiming information (such as, selecting based on fingerprint) is provided and is back to Advertisement Server 250B, selects to provide advertisement, and determine for measuring for aiming and creativeness.As described above with reference to Figure 7, Advertisement Server 250B also can determine whether by any extra information (such as, identifier and/or first party data element) provide and be back to browser 150B, to be used to relatively more relevant and/or to aim at information accurately, thus for aiming at and creatively selecting to provide advertisement.

Fig. 9 illustrates and performs another example implementations that pixel lights the advertising service environment of measurement.In the example shown in fig. 9, such as, one or more device 100C (such as, but be not limited to, the working computer illustrated, home computer, flat computer and intelligent telephone equipment) various websites on network (such as, the Internet) are connected to via the browser 150C operated on described one or more device 100C.Such as, device 100C can be connected to publisher website 200C, Advertisement Server website and/or advertiser website via browser 150C.

In this specific examples, the render engine that rendering server 450C performs provides placeholder label in the browser 150C of one or more device 100C.If first party information (cookie or other data element) to be present on device 100C (such as, be present in browser 150C), then first party information (cookie or other data element) is identified and is provided to Advertisement Server 400C.Browser and/or device fingerprint elements are also identified and are provided to Advertisement Server 400C.Advertisement Server 400C access memory cache server 250C (or other data storage device, such as database, disk storage etc.), to mate one or more element and unique (or half is unique) browser details in fingerprint of first party information.As mentioned above, fingerprint key or details can be general unique keys, or enough different so that in order to the extensive sampling of the object and statistically enough discriminating devices and/or browser that provide advertisement.

Memory cache server 250C and/or Advertisement Server 400C identifies and/or selects one or more identifier (such as, user identifier, alternative user identifier are (such as, browser fingerprint) and/or register information identifier), for the one or more advertisements identified from advertiser database 300C or other external data provider data set 350C, to be supplied to Advertisement Server 400C, thus for pixel management and measurement details.Such as, memory cache server 300C can identify that suitable pixel to light on browser 150C (advertiser, publisher or other), thus via the suitable master key collection of use and closed loop guarantees accurate counting and measurement.Advertisement Server 400C receives and determines pixel logo symbol, so that the one or more instructions being used for lighting one or more measurement pixel determined are sent back to browser 150C.

exemplary first party ad system

The example of the first party ad system that can use in various implementation described here is provided as follows.These are only the examples of the system and method that can use together with system and method described herein, such as, but not limited to, tolerance determine, user's identification, fingerprint recognition (such as, browser and/or device fingerprint recognition), storer or other memory cache etc.

In one example in which, provide first party advertising service environment, in this first party advertising service environment, Advertisement Server shares gray territory.Because Advertisement Server shares gray territory, so Advertisement Server has first party access to the cookie arranged by advertiser, and therefore can the gray cookie data that arrange on the browser of user of read and write.Even if user has been arranged via his secure browser block the use of third party cookie, Advertisement Server also can the gray first party cookie of read and write and not stopped by security setting.In addition, gray this first party cookie is unlikely regarded as spy and is stopped by Anti-Spyware or delete.Therefore, the advertising service that the Advertisement Server operated in gray territory can provide third party's Advertisement Server possibly cannot use.

In one example in which, advertiser provides access to one of its subdomain to Advertisement Server.Advertisement Server can be allowed the subdomain of access to provide the parts (such as, advertisement) of webpage and webpage from it by advertiser subsequently.Therefore, the cookie write at first by gray web server can by the web server read and write of Advertisement Server.Amendment browser options reads cookie by subdomain, because cookie is arranged on gray website in first party situation to stop that the computer user of the setting of third party cookie can not stop.

In another example, this environment comprises web browser, the advertiser website of the related territory of tool and web server, first party cookie, publisher website and advertisement is supplied to the Advertisement Server of publisher website.When browser access advertiser website, first party cookie is set to browser by the web server of association.Certain time afterwards, when browser access comprises the publisher website of the advertisement provided by Advertisement Server, gray cookie is sent to Advertisement Server and asks advertisement by browser.Advertisement Server receives cookie, because the territory of Advertisement Server is the subdomain in gray territory.Advertisement Server reads cookie and based on this cookie value, the content of request is sent back to browser.Can be the further explanation finding this to process in the RFC 2109 of HTTP state management mechanisms at title.

In another example, structure web server and the using and disposing of cookie technology, make gray Customer Relationship Management (CRM) system can fully be used the real time data collected by advertiser and Advertisement Server and shared by the cookie shared.Because advertiser and the Advertisement Server cookie that all read and write is identical, so data can be shared in real time.Be eliminated by the delay that synchronously current method of Advertisement Server and advertiser data (such as, cookie overnight is synchronous) causes termly or be at least reduced.

In one example in which, in the advertisement quotient field, provide the Advertisement Server of web advertisement to be not limited to provide a description main gray advertisement.Alternatively, Advertisement Server can provide advertisement from other company one or more (or four directions).If four directions and advertiser have existing relation (such as, market cooperative relationship, more district's sales agreement, unitization etc.), then advertiser and four directions can obtain the extra benefit providing cubic advertisement in gray subdomain.

In another implementation, Advertisement Server can provide e-mail advertisement via gray first party territory.E-mail advertisement is derived from gray territory, and this advertiser can be the Email providers of the trust of its client.Therefore, e-mail advertisement can be directly delivered to the inbox of its client as the email message of trusting or ratify, instead of is stopped by rubbish filtering.

In another implementation, original domain is set up by Advertisement Server.In original domain, configure web server, and select not arrange cookie option.Therefore, because can not cookie-be created future and in the past do not create cookie-so original domain keeps not having cookie, any advertisement also do not provided from original domain by any web server in this original domain.Therefore, for Advertisement Server creates without cookie advertising service environment.Although do not use cookie, this environment still provides the impression about advertisement performance and click function of reporting that can use when further advertisement selection.

Figure 10 represents the block scheme of the example system 500 that first party advertising service is shown.In this implementation, user operation comprises the web browser 502 of one or more cookie 504.Web browser 502 can be positioned on any Digital Media addressable device, such as, but not limited to, personal computer, laptop computer, handheld apparatus (such as, cell phone, MP3 player, blackberry, blueberry, personal digital assistant) etc.Browser 502 is guided to website 506 via browser 502 by user, such as " www.website.com ".Website 506 is provided by publisher 508, and publisher 508 is responsible for the overall content of website 506.Browser 502 sends the request of the content to the website 506 provided by publisher 508 to publisher 508.Publisher 508 provides website 506 by the content being at least partially provided for this website.As mentioned above, if arranged by publisher 508 before one or more cookie 504, then the described one or more cookie 504 arranged by publisher 508 are transmitted to publisher 508 by together with this request.

In implementation shown in Figure 10, website 506 also comprises the banner 510 provided by Advertisement Server 512.Advertisement Server 512 associates with at least one advertiser 514, and representative at least one advertiser 514 described provides advertisement in banner 510.Other assemblies one or more of website can be provided by the content supplier (such as, another advertiser or other content supplier) except publisher 508.

Advertisement Server 512 and advertiser 514 shared domain 516.In this implementation, the territory 516 that advertiser has " advertiser.com ", and the subdomain in gray territory is assigned to Advertisement Server 512, i.e. " ads.advertiser.com ".Because Advertisement Server 512 shares the territory of advertiser 514, so Advertisement Server 512 has first party access to the cookie arranged by advertiser 514 in the past.Therefore, if user carried out purchase in the past on the website of being issued by advertiser 514, then advertiser site may be provided with cookie user being identified as client on the browser 502 of user.The copy of the cookie arranged by advertiser 514 is sent to Advertisement Server 512 by browser 502 subsequently together with the request of the content to banner 510.

There is advertiser 514 and the various methods of accessing the subdomain of Advertisement Server 512 can be provided.In one implementation, such as, advertiser 514 uses its domain name service (DNS) server subdomain DNS request is assigned (delegate) or reboots to Advertisement Server dns server.This process is called as DNS and assigns.This point can realize by creating name server (NS) record pointing to Advertisement Server dns server in advertiser's dns server.The further explanation that can this is found in RFC1591 to process.In another implementation, by address record (or " A Record ") in advertiser's dns server, advertiser 514 can make their Hostname point to Internet Protocol (IP) address of Advertisement Server.In another implementation, the hardware and software of Advertisement Server is co-located in gray infrastructure or is co-located in the network identical with gray infrastructure.

When Advertisement Server dns server receive reboot time, its obtains the logical name (such as, " ads.companyname.com ") of the subdomain sent from advertiser dns server, and it is resolved to ad server IP address.Such as, " ads.companyname.com " will be resolved as IP address, such as " 216.150.209.230 ".Advertiser's dns server is advanced to the browse request of website " ads.companyname.com ", then advances to Advertisement Server dns server.Advertisement Server dns server will return to browser IP address " 216.150.209.230 ".After the IP address receiving association, any cookie associated with territory " .advertiser.com " and web-page requests are sent to the IP address associated by browser.Such as, the advantage that DNS assigns is: it seamlessly can be combined load balance for advertising service and failover with the existing proprietary solution of Advertisement Server.

Advertisement Server 512 receives for providing the request of advertiser's banner 510 and determining in banner 510 advertisement of display.Such as, Advertisement Server 512 can be that ad banner 510 determines suitable content according at least one value of the cookie received from browser 502.When Advertisement Server 512 receives and reads the cookie 504 with browse request, such as, the gray web server of Advertisement Server 512 identifiable design is placed on the cookie value identified for advertisement selection in cookie primitively.Such as, suppose that gray web server recognizes that the specific consumers of accessing gray website is high level client.Cookie 504 is set to the browser 502 of client by web server subsequently, this cookie 504 IncFlds " .advertiser.com " and data " Target=high_value (high level) ".Advertiser 514 carried out communicating to transmit following rule with Advertisement Server 512 in the past: when Advertisement Server 512 runs into the cookie data with " Target=high_value ", Advertisement Server 512 should be realized that it is processing the high level client of advertiser 514 and suitable advertisement should be supplied to this client.During each client's access " www.advertiser.com " website, " Target (target) " cookie value can be reset by gray web server with the currency state reflecting client.Such as, when client accesses gray website first, this client can be " medium_value (medium value) " client, but this client makes a big purchase in large quantities subsequently.The state updating of this client can be " high_value (high level) " by gray web server, then correspondingly resets cookie information.If the browser of this client 502 is mutual with the web server of Advertisement Server subsequently, then the cookie value after upgrading will make " high_value " advertisement return to the browser 502 of this client from the web server of Advertisement Server immediately.

Although Advertisement Server 512 provides web advertisement in the territory 516 of advertiser 514, Advertisement Server 112 can be not limited to represent main advertiser 514 and provide advertisement.Alternatively, Advertisement Server 512 can provide advertisement from other company one or more (or four directions).If four directions has existing relation (such as with advertiser 514, market cooperative relationship, more district's sales agreement, unitization etc.), then advertiser 514 and four directions can obtain the extra benefit providing cubic advertisement in the subdomain of advertiser 514.

If the advertisement in user's click or otherwise selection banner 510, then the browser of user is directed to the website of the advertiser 514 being positioned at gray territory " advertiser.com ".

Figure 11 represents another example of first party advertising service environment 600.This figure comprises three row.First row comprises four expressions of the computer workstation 602 representing computer user and web browser.Although workstation shown in Figure 11, can from any device (including but not limited to: personal digital assistant (PDA), mobile phone, notebook, desktop PC etc.) running browser that can perform browser.From the top of this page to bottom, each expression of workstation represents identical workstation, but represents the workstation of time afterwards.Such as, the first workstation expresses possibility and occurs in hour 1, and the second workstation expresses possibility and occurs in hours 2, etc.Secondary series comprises the expression of the website 604 that browser in row 1 was watched in preset time.3rd row comprise the advertiser " Lender (credit side) " of domain name service (DNS) server and the configuration of Advertisement Server " Adserver (Advertisement Server) " structure and Advertisement Server web server and are used for the expression of the implementation banner on the website of publisher being made to the rule of response.

Continue above example, in hour 1, its web browser is guided to " http://home.lender.com " website by user.User completes subsequently " application for credit " web form, and credit side's web server arranges the cookie of the information comprised on the browser of user.Credit side (advertiser) and Advertisement Server consult to provide banner in publisher website " publisher1.com " and " publisher2.com ".Credit side and Advertisement Server are according to above-mentioned their server of implementation configuration and dns server.Advertisement Server has territory " ads.lender.com ", and this territory " ads.lender.com " is the subdomain in the territory " lender.com " of advertiser credit side.In hours 2, its browser is guided to the website " publisher1.com " of publisher by user, and this website " publisher1.com " comprises the banner for credit side provided by Advertisement Server.Because the browser of user has comprised the cookie of the territory lender.com created in hour 1 by credit side's web server, so send to Advertisement Server web server by browser by this cookie and to the request of banner.Advertisement Server web server reads this cookie and recognizes that this client has loan application undetermined.Responsively, " banner 1 " ad-delivery is back to web browser by Advertisement Server web server.

In hours 3, user accesses again " lender.com " and current select 4% interest rate.This information is added to " lender.com " cookie by credit side's web server.In hours 4, its browser is guided to the second publisher website " publisher2.com " also comprising credit side's banner by user.Lender.com cookie is sent to the Advertisement Server web server of request banner by browser.Advertisement Server web server reads this cookie and recognizes the interest rate being provided with 4% by credit side's web server in hours 3.Responsively, " banner 4 " is sent back to web browser by Advertisement Server web server.
