Taboola CEO: Online Video Publishers Facing “Supply and Demand” Dilemma
However, in this video session from the Beet.TV Executive Retreat, Adam Singolda, CEO of Taboola, points out that "thereâs a supply and demand issue" when it comes to online video.He explains that advertisers are going to some of the biggest websites and offering millions of dollars to run video ads, but the publishers simply donât have enough video inventory. Also Beet.TV uses the Taboola platform to recommend our videos.

While these brands and publishers may try to increase their own video inventory, Singolda explains that it can be close to impossible to get to the point where they have enough inventory to sell.Taboola helps publishers meet the demand for online video content by offering video recommendations from other sites. Yesterday their recommendation engine went live on live video news portal Livestation as well and in the session Singolda also speaks about some of the challenges that go along with creating live video recommendations.Megan OâNeillDisclosure: Taboola was the presenting sponsor of the Beet Executive Retreat in Vieques, Puerto Rico last month.
