Private label contextual program by Quigo

Quigo is also offering a different renevue split for publishers who sign up advertisers through Private Marketplace, as opposed to the rev share for those advertisers that Quigo has brought into the program. They offer full disclosure of the revenue share in the Private Marketplace Program.

Publishers who have signed onto Private Marketplace include, The Knot, iExplore, and
