Adtech List of IAB Categories i.e. IAB Taxonomy

Updated: May 8



IAB stands for “Interactive Advertising Bureau,” and the IAB categories are a standardized taxonomy used in digital advertising to classify websites and online content based on their subject matter.


Using IAB categories can be helpful for targeting specific audiences with digital ads and for ensuring that ads are displayed on websites and content that align with the advertiser’s goals. Advertisers can target their ads to specific IAB categories to reach users who are interested in specific topics or content areas.
