Google selects comScore as brand safety measurement provider

Business, Media

comScore announced an initiative to work with Google to provide independent brand safety reporting of advertising campaigns on YouTube. The new collaboration is part of Google’s efforts to provide advertisers with greater visibility into the context in which their ads appear.

comScore uses a proprietary brand safety engine that is integral to its validated Campaign Essentials (vCE) suite, a tech which continuously monitors patterns within text content to identify the brand safety of a given ad context – both in general and for specific campaigns, on both mobile and desktop platforms.

Monitoring online content for brand safety is a complex challenge, particularly in an environment that has the vast scale and growth of YouTube (…) We’re delighted to see Google taking further action to monitor and increase brand safety, and appreciate its vote of confidence in selecting comScore to be part of this initiative.
