A favorite bugaboo with which publishers like to challenge ad exchanges and networks is latency - the amount of time it takes to serve an ad. RightMedia appears to be suffering a bad case of it according to yesterday's VentureBeat.
VB adds that there is a ton of research out there saying the loss in revenue due to latency in advertiser campaigns is real and significant.
RightMedia confesses in the article and blames it on rapid growth:
"As with all rapid growth, [Right Media has] also faced some recent performance issues with latency of ad serving. We deeply regret the impact this may have had on our customer’s businesses."
In the post, VentureBeat's Jake Swearingen asks for more input from the advertising community. We'll be curious what he turns up.
