German Bild will start using Taboola for native

Axel Springer’s Bild Group, one of Europe’s largest publishing houses, known for Auto Bild, Bild, B.Z., and Computer Bild, will start using Taboola for native ads monetization.

Taboola says Bild Group will now use their platform, from the core recommendation deep learning driven technology to the editorial Newsroom insights.

Right now, Bild is using Outbrain for native ads.

Leveraging Taboola’s Newsroom insights and real-time A/B testing capabilities, BILD editorial teams will be able to test creatives and see the performance of content in real time, as well as topics their users are most interested in reading about, to create editorial best practices over time.

Adam Singolda, Taboola CEO said he is “excited to work with Stefan, his team, and the Axel Springer board of directors to innovate on the product, investing in the future of quality journalism on the open web and keeping journalism not only strong — but thriving.”
