RoundUp: Google’s Chrome Ad Blocking Plans

There was a sudden increase in site visits to the Coalition for Better Ads last week, after it was reported by the Wall Street Journal and Digiday, that Google is planning to institute ad blocking in its Chrome browser, based on guidelines from the Coalition for Better Ads.

Doug Huntington On The Challenges And Opportunities For B2B Publishers

When Doug Huntington sits down with AdMonsters Brian LaRue we get a crash course about the challenges that B2B publishers face.

B2B Publishers Rely On AdBook To Solve Unique Challenges

What do John Deere’s display ads, Midel’s conference sponsorship, and Carbonite’s newsletter campaign have in common? All three are seamlessly managed by a single B2B business publisher property with AdBook’s flexible and extensible order management tools.
