Nielsen Holdings plc (NLSN - Free Report) has launched a new advanced analytics solution under its Digital Ad Ratings (DAR) service. 

The new service known as DAR Publisher Insights enables digital publishers to perform actionable and in-depth analysis of advertising campaign data especially in terms of reach and effectiveness.

Unlocking Crucial Ad Insights

DAR Publisher Insights ranks publishers per their ability to perform against reach and on-target percentage for campaigns and comparative to industry campaign norms and competitors.

The service’s analytics dashboard gives publishers access to custom metrics that include reach efficiency and incremental reach.

Publishers can now access audience attributes beyond age and gender such as household income, education, ethnicity and occupation for deeper audience verification.

Using this service, publishers can now perform return on ad spend research retroactively utilizing Nielsen Catalina Solutions and Nielsen Buyer Insights data.
