Expanded integration with DoubleClick Bid Manager allows global marketers to easily access Nielsen’s industry-standard digital advertising measurement

London – August 14, 2015 – Nielsen has expanded its relationship with Google to make Nielsen Digital Ad Ratings – its online ad measurement service – available internationally via Google’s DoubleClick demand-side platform (DSP). 

For the first time, Nielsen Digital Ad Ratings is available via DoubleClick Bid Manager in the UK, alongside Australia, Brazil and Canada. Digital Ad Ratings has been available in the DoubleClick platform in the US since December 2014.

The expanded integration allows global media buyers and sellers that use DoubleClick Bid Manager as their DSP to enable audience measurement for their online campaigns as part of a seamless workflow. This eliminates the separate steps needed for tagging and enhances the campaign execution experience for DoubleClick Bid Manager clients globally by offering campaign delivery, audience measurement, and reporting in a single place.

Additionally, Nielsen is continuing to expand its Digital Ad Ratings measurement into more markets. The service recently launched in China, Singapore, Indonesia, Philippines, Japan and Mexico, with India, Thailand and Malaysia set for launch in the coming months.  By the end of the year, Digital Ad Ratings will be available in 16 international markets which together cover 95% of global digital advertising spending.

“Digital Ad Ratings continues to grow globally, driven by increased usage, new clients and demand from major advertisers,” said Nielsen EVP of global Watch product leadership Megan Clarken. “By making Digital Ad Ratings measurement available through platforms like Google’s DoubleClick, we offer added value, choice and flexibility in how clients access insights to evaluate campaign effectiveness.”

Nielsen’s integration with DoubleClick includes the availability of standard Digital Ad Ratings measurement for video ads on desktops.
