Ads for mobile apps in Yandex.Direct
A special format of direct ads, designed specifically to promote mobile apps — attracting new users, increasing the number of installs and bringing back users to the app who stopped using it. By clicking on the ad, the user is taken directly to the relevant page in the app store, where they can download the app with just one tap.
- Exclusive traffic. Millions of users see ads for mobile apps on Yandex search on mobile devices, as well as on sites in the Yandex Advertising Network, which pass a thorough selection process.
- Special targeting. Ads for mobile apps appear in response to selected keywords or according to retargeting lists. For example, advertisers can decide which age or gender they want to see their ads. They can likewise target users by operating system (iOS or Android), device type (smartphone/tablet) and connection type (Wi-Fi/mobile).
If you are just beginning to get to know your audience, autotargeting can choose the queries for which your ads will appear, and Yandex’s Look-alike technology can help to target impressions to people who behave on the Internet the same way as your users.
- Quick start. When creating an ad, enter the link to your app in the app store and add a tracker, write ad texts and you are ready to launch. Yandex.Direct will determine the operating system (Android or iOS), load additional elements like the icon, rating, price and number of reviews into the ad, find the right audience and maintain the CPI you set.
The system tracks the relevance of information and automatically takes updated information from the app store, and even stops ads temporarily if your app is unavailable.
More advanced users still have the option to add keywords, adjust their bids and fine tune other settings.
