Discover platforms and learn more about them with the Kochava Media Index, now the world’s largest advertising database

Kochava Media Index advertising database

Facebook and Google have long been obligatory advertising platforms in your media mix, but there is a world full of ad vendors each with a host of capabilities for marketers. But without a comprehensive advertising database to base their decisions, marketers often end up overpaying for test campaigns with new vendors to visualize performance or maintain relationships with low-performing vendors because of the headache involved in integrating with new partners.

The Kochava Media Index is our solution to simplify the research process. With the acquisition of Thalamus, the largest research database of ad vendor data in the world, Kochava is taking another giant step toward creating an unbiased industry standard and giving marketers a robust and transparent way to research ad vendors, and similarly, for those vendors to properly prospect buyers.

Adapting the Thalamus advertising database

Kochava has adapted the list and validated it with our own anonymized first-party data, similar to how we evaluate media partners for the Kochava Traffic Index. While that index highlights the top-performing media partners, the Media Index provides full transparency on all integrated partners so marketers can make more informed decisions about who to run campaigns with and connect with them directly.

The database hosts information on 50K ad vendors and 500K marketers/buyers, and the information provided on them includes:

  • Site traffic
  • Mobile data
  • Alexa traffic
  • Pricing models
  • Where is the inventory located
  • What type of creatives vendors run

Marketers can search the database using a variety of filters including geo, key performance indicators, media channel, or inventory filters. Ad vendors will also be ranked based on the reviews, Kochava data available on them, and data provided by them. 

The database marketers can trust to find trusted partners

Buy and track quality inventory with Kochava Attribution and Kochava Media Index. The Media Index will be continually updated as we procure more information about both buyers and sellers and is another major step in creating transparency in the ecosystem.
