Publishers respond well to App Store search ads

Apple App Store search ads were launched in 2016, and are proving popular.


Search ads are outperforming the majority of other user-acquisition strategies, according to sources.

The function costs just a fraction of similar advertising alternatives, although the placement is still considered experimental.

Roman Karachinksy, co-founder of News360, said: “My initial reaction to that first test we ran was, ‘This [success] must be a temporary thing. But it’s been a few months now, and out of all the channels we experimented with, search ads is up there [among the best performers].”

Publishers including The New York Times, CNN, ESPN, and TheScore area already using the platform.
