Comscore Launches Predictive Audiences in Canada

Comscore expands cookie-free audience targeting solutions to Canada to assist advertisers, agencies, and publishers


RESTON, Va., Oct. 27, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- With third-party cookie deprecation coming, advertisers and publishers need bold new solutions to ensure that their campaigns continue to reach the right audiences. That's why Comscore (Nasdaq: SCOR), a trusted partner to more than 3,000 clients across local stations, national networks, station groups, advertising and media agencies, and the entire Movies ecosystem, is excited to launch Predictive Audiences in Canada – representing the industry's first cookie-free targeting capability that enables advertisers to reach audiences based on granular consumer behavior through privacy-friendly contextual signals. The new solution, which delivers scale and precision, is available now in leading Demand Side Platforms.

With Predictive Audiences, brands can continue to reach granular audiences aligned to their campaign goals based on age and gender demographics, consumer behaviors, and media consumption behaviors – all in a cookie-free Canadian environment.

"With the uncertainty around third-party cookies, it is important to develop new privacy-forward targeting approaches so that brands will still be able to utilize consumer behavior to reach refined audiences," said Bryan Segal, Senior Vice President, Comscore Canada. "At Comscore, we are continuously innovating and expanding to stay on the leading edge of industry trends and to empower our clients to succeed in a complex, continuously shifting marketplace."

Critically, this innovation empowers advertisers to continue leveraging Comscore's massive data footprint and market-leading methodologies while also adapting their strategies to prepare for the cookie-free era. The unique combination of Comscore's leading global opt-in panel and our commercial contextual crawler, which facilitates the creation of our Predictive Audiences, is something other contextual providers simply do not have. Comscore is excited to advance the industry with viable cookie-free alternatives to maintain campaign KPIs and mitigate risk as the privacy and ID environments evolve in Canada.
