First-party data is accurate, safe, and for publishers, will always be useful in helping maximize yield and ad revenue. But frustrated by current technology, most publishers see a big future for first-party data, just not right now.  

A current OpenX survey showed that a whopping 85 percent of publishers consider 1P data to be an important key to future revenue, yet they were mixed on how they were using it today. Only 21 percent say it is “very important” to revenue today, but more than 50 percent say it will be “very important” going forward.

The survey was conducted in July 2021 with 123 respondents across direct publishers, networks and sales houses. 60 percent of respondents had over 500M ad requests a month, and the publishers covered desktop (94 percent of respondents), mobile app (55 percent) and CTV (18 percent).
