Contextual targeting allows you to show ads only on relevant web pages. Focusing on content and keywords, rather than looking for alternatives to third-party cookies.
Unlike behavioral targeting, which is based on patterns in audience segments, contextual targeting is based on the context of a specific page. It means it doesn’t involve cookies or other ad identifiers.
The main disadvantage of this solution is that it offers limited targeting options and does not report user demographics and behavioral characteristics. This type of targeting can be implemented on content-heavy websites with different thematic sections.
Fingerprinting This method does not identify users by special codes stored on their system, but by the unique characteristics of their browser, system, and device: Screen resolution of installed IP plug-ins.
Time zone Ways to store data on the client side without using cookies. Since fingerprinting does not require any data to be stored on the client, it is very difficult to detect and almost impossible to avoid.
If first-party cookies are only valid within a domain, the unique characteristics remain unchanged when visiting different websites. This fact drastically simplifies tracking.
However, unlike cookies, users cannot opt out of this tracking, violating industry-wide privacy principles.
Most browsers announced that they would limit fingerprinting capabilities in the future.
Temporary alternative to third-party cookies that the marketplace may use during the transition. Stricter data protection regulations make this solution impractical in the long run.
