Contextual Targeting

Contextual targeting is widely known as a more traditional form of programmatic targeting, but is making a comeback largely because it can still be effective without the use of third-party cookies, which are being phased out by all major web browsers.

Google Topics API

Even Google, who is planning to remove third-party cookies in Chrome by 2023, has introduced a new “identity” solution, Topics API, which takes a more contextual/category approach to targeting individuals online. You can learn more about Google’s Topics API in our blog post: On the Topic of Google Topics
