The surge of content marketing, based on the creation and distribution of valuable content, is a reality. The objective is no longer solely to advertise but to engage and offer valuable experiences to the market as well. In this context, precision in content classification is becoming essential. And that’s why we implemented a new automatic content classifier according to the full IAB taxonomy.
Therefore, since including tier 3 of the content taxonomy to the categorization categories of our IAB model last year, we have chosen to complement it by providing the complete ontology. In line with the Content Taxonomy, published in 2017 and updated in 2020 by the IAB Tech Lab (Interactive Advertising Bureau), this classification includes the remaining 60 categories that make up tier 4. A total categorization of over 698 categories, hierarchized into four tiers, is thus, offered. We have kept the unique identifier that IAB assigns to each one of its categories, as well as their name, through which its parent categories can be found.
