  26. Distribution of Cost Per Click (CPC) Not a Zip’s law !

  27. Challenging Questions • For advertisers • What words to buy? • How much to pay? • Arbitrage among keywords/suppliers, try to cherry pick demographics • How to fight with spam • Dilemma between the overall cost and the number of clicks • For publisher (search engines) • How to price the words? • Let the market decide: bidding! • When to place ad? (a matching problem) • How to price “extended” or “broad” match ? • Long term costs (bad user experience) • Dilemma between relevance and short term profit

  28. Find the Right Ad • Relatively simple on bid phrases • Similar to Web Search, but • Ranking depends on both bids and relevance • Each ad entry = a “small page” • Different metadata (keywords, title, URL) • Enormous historical data (billions of searches/ad/clicks records) • What about queries on which there is no bid?

  29. Find the Right Ad • Advertiser can bid on “broad queries” and/or “concept queries” • Bid on any query that contains “sigir”or the “sigir”concept. • Pitfall: partial matching • Ad: A seller of car water pumps might bid on “pumps”. • Query: “breast pumps” or “black pumps”

  30. Auction and Pricing • Advertisers compete for each keyword • Advertiser pays the search engine when a searcher clicked on a displayed ad • Challenges • Which keywords to bid? • How much to bid for each keyword? • How to adjust the biding according to the performance?

  31. Search Advertising System • D: a collection of documents (i.e., ads) • q: a user query • M: qD {0, 1} • A matching function • Decide if an ad is relevant to the query q • R: qD [0, 1] • A ranking function • Decide the relative rank of an ad to query q

  32. ad2 ad3 ad1 ad1 ad3 ad4 ad4 ad5 ad6 Search Advertising System Ad Database Query Identify relevant ads by M Miele Bid different keywords Click Data Rank ads by R Advertisers Change bid

  33. Relevance Matching • The quality of relevance matching affects the user’s perception of the web content • Exact match and approximate match • Exact match: query = ad keywords • Approximate match: partial match • Similar to typical IR methods • Query expansion to include synonyms and related terms

  34. Why? Conversion Rate vs. Query Size • Intuition: the longer the query the higher the conversion rate

  35. Conversion Rate vs. Query Size • Intuition: the longer the query the higher the conversion rate It is because most brand names are single word

  36. Conversion Rate vs. Query Size • Too specific queries Why?

  37. Ranking • Satisfy interests of different parties • Users: relevant information • Advertisers: quality traffic at a minimum cost and with a minimum risk of negative user attitude • Brokers and publishers: maximize their revenues at the minimum risk of negative user attitude

  38. Click Through Rate vs Ranking A simple strategy: always put the most expensive ads on the top (what is wrong with this idea?)

  39. Paid Placement Strategy • Rank by willingness to pay (WTP ranking) • Rank by willingness to pay times click-through rate (WTPC ranking), i.e., the product between their bids and their expected click-through rate. • The reward for a click is larger if it is received in a lower rank. Perceived Relevance Expected Profits 

  40. Fraud Detection • The more publishers have users clicking in the ads shown in their pages, the more advertisers will pay to them. • Publisher can fake traffic to attract advertisers • CompUSA spent more than $10 millions in 2004 due to fake traffic. • Characteristics of fake traffic • Distribution of clicks over time • Distribution of clicks over users • A standard classification

  41. Measurements • Advertisers need to get detailed feedback about their performance • Cost per thousand impression: • Traditional pricing model • Payments were measured mainly based on the quantity of impressions of ads • Uncertainty on the benefit of advertisers • Performance based metrics • Direct estimate of advertiser’s return of investments

  42. Measurements • User clicks may not convert • Require reliable estimate of the return of their investments (ROI). • Keyword-targeted advertising performs better than content-targeted advertising • Users are less likely to generate a conversion while surfing.
