Internet Advertising and Optimal Auction Design

Internet Advertising and Optimal Auction Design

This video was recorded at NIPS ˙08 Workshop: Beyond Search - Computational Intelligence for the Web. This talk describes the optimal (revenue maximizing) auction for sponsored search advertising. We show that a search engine's optimal reserve price is independent of the number of bidders. Using simulations, we consider the changes that result from a search engine's choice of reserve price and from changes in the number of participating advertisers.
