While in-app advertising continues to be one of the most popular forms of advertising in the present day context, the mobile browser has been quick to follow its lead. To get more specific, advertising on the native browser homepage is the next big thing for mobile marketers. Why?

By using the right creative and communication in the native browser homepage ads, brands and advertisers can tap this opportunity to gain maximum brand visibility and user engagement.

This is a major concern as nowadays, most of the mobile ad spends are based on a CPI model. In fact, other cost models like PPC, PPM, CPR, CPT, etc. are also no exception to this problem as fraudsters are always looking for new tactics to break through the security vault and steal money from advertisers.
