What is an Ad Network?

An Ad Network is a broker between advertisers who wish to purchase ad space and publishers who want to sell advertising space on their websites. By aggregating ad space supply from publishers and matching it with advertiser demand, ad networks make it easier for advertisers to reach their desired audiences across multiple websites.


For example, a small business owner can use an ad network to place ads on relevant websites without negotiating directly with each publisher.
