What does the term “data waste” mean?
A significant share of today's data transfer in digital advertising has no impact on user experience. As such, there's a massive amount of data being transferred in digital advertising that is never consumed or optimized. We call this data waste.
Data waste accounts for a remarkable share of the internet's CO2 footprint.
Two examples of data waste:
- Pre-loading out-of-view ads that are never seen
- Non-optimized content quality
