Taptica Ranked Top 15 Global Media Source in 2017 Singular ROI Index

February 14, 2018 | Article written by Carly Morris

Extra, extra! Singular’s 2017 ROI Index is here, and we’re excited to share that Taptica once again heads the ranks of top international media sources for this year.

The Singular ROI Index takes $1 billion in revenue data from over 1,700 apps with 315 million installs. Combining these numbers with their advanced fraud analytics and insights, Singular evaluated over 1,200 mobile media sources globally. The overall rankings account for three critical performance factors:
1. Quality: Based on ROI (revenue/cost)
2. Scale: Based on total ad spend
3. Fraud Factor: Rank penalty based on the percentage of fraudulent installs

Quality and scale are two standard measures when it comes to identifying a standout media source. But, by including the additional parameter of fraudulent traffic percentages, Singular brings their assessment to a new level – one that is becoming increasingly important as the industry seeks new ways to dismantle ad fraud in all of its forms. After all, immediate campaign scale and revenue are only as good as the legitimacy of your acquired users, and their propensity to remain engaged for life.

We’re excited to drill down deeper this year to provide them with even more guidance based on vertical and regional trends.”

• Apple Search Ads rose from the 23rd to the 6th highest-volume media source on iOS
• AdWords held the top spot in Americas and APAC on Android, but Facebook beat out AdWords in EMEA
