BANGKOK, Thailand, July 10, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Taboola, the leading discovery platform, today announced a two-year, exclusive partnership with Sanook!, one of Thailand’s top online destinations for information and entertainment. The collaboration will integrate Taboola’s personalized content recommendations across Sanook!’s desktop and mobile sites, driving engagement and monetization goals for the publisher.
Sanook! is one of the leading websites in Thailand, reaching over 27 million monthly unique visitors. Taboola’s predictive technology will help users discover more of Sanook!’s popular editorial content, boosting engagement metrics such as time-on-site and pages-per-visit. These personalized recommendations will also draw on promoted stories from around the web, creating a significant new revenue stream for the publisher, as well as value to users, expanding the scope of interesting and discoverable content.
“Sanook! has long been at the forefront of digital media trends, continually adapting new strategies to maintain our position as Thailand’s most popular online destination for over a decade,” said Krittee Manoleehagul, CEO at Sanook Online Limited. “A key aspect of this approach is finding innovative companies to partner with, and we’re excited to work with Taboola on providing our audiences with personalized experiences across all platforms.”
In addition to serving Thai-language recommendations, Taboola supports dozens of other languages around the world, including Spanish, French, German, Hebrew, Hindi, Japanese, Portuguese and more. Taboola’s predictive engine analyzes hundreds of real-time signals (including geography, context, referral source, and social media trends) to match people with the top pieces of content they are most likely to be interested in consuming.
“Internet users in Thailand are some of the most active in the world, spending an average of 5.5 hours online each day, surpassed only by the Philippines in the Asia-Pacific region,” said Adam Singolda, founder and CEO of Taboola. “As part of a massive mobile growth trend in the region, our Taboola APAC team, headquartered in Bangkok, sees exponential growth potential in Thailand as more and more people connect to the Internet for the first time. We’re very excited to team up with such a leading digital media brand as Sanook! and look forward to bringing discovery to highly-active audiences throughout the country, connecting people with content they may like and never knew existed.”
