Relevad RTD Provider

Relevad is a contextual semantic analytics company. Our privacy-first, cookieless contextual categorization, segmentation, and keyword generation platform is designed to help publishers and advertisers optimize targeting and increase ad inventory yield.

This real-time data processing module provides quality contextual IAB categories and segments to prebid.js auction bidders. Every category and segment comes with a score measuring its relevance to the publisher’s web page. Publishers may configure their preferred minimum score setting with the module parameter “minscore”. Relevad service does not use browser cookies and is fully GDPR compliant.


Compile the Relevad RTD module (relevaddRtdProvider) into your Prebid build, along with the parent RTD Module (rtdModule):

gulp build --modules=rtdModule,relevadRtdProvider

Next we configure the module, via pbjs.setConfig. See the Parameter Descriptions below for more detailed information of the configuration parameters.

            bidders: [
