Why Ad Lightning?

Ad Lightning is the first business intelligence tool designed to give Publishers the insight and control they need to manage programmatic creative, eliminate bad ads and maximize ROI.

Programmatic buying has changed how Publishers do business. While automation has improved yield and efficiency, the nature of audience targeting often blinds Publishers to the full range of ads being shown to their audience. The RTB process and complex "waterfall" chains inject frustrating latency into even the fastest web sites, slowing page load and annoying users. Without oversight, the combined effect decreases engagement, drives ad block installs and significantly jeopardizes revenue.

Increase Transparency

Ad Lightning gives you instant visibility and control over the ads running on your site. Our tools provide real-time data including CPU usage, ad file size, media type (audio/video/flash), tracking pixels, creative ID, waterfall and demand source.

Maximize ROI

Faster load times increase page views, drive conversions and decrease ad block installs. Ad Lightning's proven approach helps optimize page load, improve customer satisfaction and drive more revenue.

Improve Efficiency

Get started quickly and eliminate the headache of tracking down harmful creative and reporting it to your demand partners. Ad Lightning's solution requires no code integration and fits into your team's existing workflow.

How it Works

Ad Lightning's proprietary technology watches your site, profiling ads for speed, size, demand source and overall impact on your user experience.

Our customizable scoring methodology assesses the overall quality of the ads and highlights performance, spec, engagement, tracker and latency issues caused by your advertisements. Detailed, ad level data indicates what ads should be removed and automatically communicates the information to your network partners.



Comprehensive, real-time data gives you the insight you need to optimize demand partners, eliminate bad ads, protect your brand and maximize revenue.


Don't let ad monetization jeopardize your customer's buying or brand experience. Maximize transactions by removing bad ads, speeding up page load and improving customer satisfaction.
