Digital media companies like Digg are already showing signs of growth.
But the search giant has come under increasing pressure to take on the role of the Internet’s go-to digital platform, as a flood of online content increasingly threatens to overwhelm its servers.
Digg, which is owned by Google, has been in a state of flux for years, following a string of failures to attract users.
Its new digital platform is supposed to help publishers better compete against the likes of Google and Facebook, who are increasingly offering a range of advertising and content delivery options on their platforms.
However, critics have raised questions about the effectiveness of Digg’s approach, pointing to its reliance on ad-blocking software.
DIGG’s Digital Ads page says it has no plans to use the advertising platform it created in 2015 to sell ads on its sites.
DIABLE Digital ads are typically only used by companies that have already paid for the service, and do not have the ability to charge more for ads.
But it is one of a growing number of digital platforms that have adopted advertising formats that offer more flexibility.
This is due to the growing popularity of ad-free web browsing and a shift towards more “native” mobile apps.
In its most recent earnings report, Google reported that ad spending rose in 2017 to $3.2 billion.
But its advertising revenue per user rose to $5.2bn in 2018, according to research firm Kantar Worldpanel.
This growth has made Digg the most popular site on the internet with more than $1bn in ad revenue, according the firm.
“Digg’s advertising revenue is growing in tandem with the popularity of DASH and DASH+,” the firm said in a statement.
“But the company is also seeing the rise of competitors like YouTube and Facebook.”
Digg and other digital ad platforms offer ad blockers, which block certain ads from appearing on pages that do not include them.
The ad-blockers can cause users to miss out on content they would normally pay for.
In a statement to Digital Trends, Digg said: “DIGG is not using its advertising platform to promote content that we don’t think we should be selling.”
The company said it was launching its new platform “in partnership with leading content publishers who share the same principles and are committed to building a better digital platform.”
DIGGRID’s digital advertising platform will focus on offering advertisers “the ability to make direct, targeted digital campaigns with an end user audience, while also serving as a place to reach and engage with Digg users”.
It will include a “multi-platform advertising solution for publishers to enable them to reach their audience directly”.
The company is working with major publishers including the BBC, BuzzFeed, the Huffington Post and TechCrunch.
The platform will be free to users, with advertising being paid for by the publisher.
But publishers will be able to sell content on DIGGrids advertising platform.
The BBC said the new platform was designed to “build a more comprehensive digital ad platform”.
BuzzFeed, for example, said it had been in discussions with publishers about the new ad-sharing platform.
BuzzFeed said it hoped to offer ad-buying options “at a lower price than current offerings, enabling publishers to grow their audiences, build new audiences and drive revenue for advertisers”.
BuzzFeed said: DIGGER is not about selling ads to publishers – it is about giving publishers the tools to sell directly to users.
This means publishers are not going to have to charge publishers anything for advertising on their sites.
This also means that the content they publish is more accessible to users who are not necessarily interested in the advertisers.
The Guardian understands that advertisers have been looking for more options to promote their content on the platform.
Diggers ad-service partner, adblocker Adblock Plus, has also been developing its own ad-stopping tool.
AdblockPlus, which helps users block ads from being displayed on websites, is one such ad-platform provider.
The company was founded in 2011 by three former advertising professionals, including one of DIGGLIEST founders.
AdBlock Plus, which has been around since 2009, said its aim was to help users avoid annoying ads and “avoid negative impressions” on their content.
It also offers a way to block ads based on “adblocker preference”.
It says it provides an easy way for publishers “to avoid ads that are disruptive to users” and to offer “safe ads”.
DIGITAL PROFESSIONAL: “We don’t need ads to get to you, we need to be able take a lead on the content and deliver the right content to the right audiences at the right time.”
DOGE: “In this space, the idea is to let publishers monetise their content by monetising their audience, and let people monetise them, which gives you the freedom to build the right business model.” DIABLO
