GLOSSARY

AD TAG — aka endpoint, publisher feed or source represents a single endpoint to which a publisher must send bid requests. Each publisher is assigned one or more feeds depending on the type of traffic they send to Zeropark (pop, domain, push or search); integration type (Direct, Zeroclick, Push, Search); mainstream or adult visitors inventory, vertical settings or other justified reasons.

Publishers can create new Ad Tags in their Zeropark panel. Since newly created Ad tags must be approved by the Zeroaprk Team before the traffic is sent, our Publisher Account Managers can also set them for you.

BID — the average price that the buyer (in that case advertiser) is offering to pay for a visitor (offered by publishers). Bids come on a CPV (visit) or a CPC (click) basis depending on the traffic type. The highest bid win and receives the visit/click. 

BRAND CATALOG API — API created specifically for fetching details on active Brand Search campaigns. It is recommended to poll the API periodically (at least once every hour) in order to keep the most recent information about brand demand available on the Zeropark platform.

BRAND DEMAND API — API designed specifically for fetching details on active Search campaigns. This API takes into consideration user's device and geolocation.

CALL — aka request or query represents a signal sent by publishers to Zeroapark informing there’s a visit/click offered to be sold. 

COST MODEL — agreed way of bidding for user clicks/visits depending on the traffic type.

CPC — aka Cost Per Click represents a cost model used for Push and Search campaigns, where the payout is valid only if a user clicks on a delivered ad.

CPM — aka Cost Per Mille represents a thousand CPV.
