Contextual advertising refers to advertising on a site that is related to its content. Automated systems can display ads that are related to your site’s content based on keywords targeting.
Google AdSense is one of the most well-known examples for contextual advertising. Google robots serve relevant ads to users. AdSense may serve contextual ads for movie tickets and movie streaming services to you if your blog is a movie review site. AdWords allows advertisers to select the ads from their inventory.
Other examples of contextual advertising include
In-game contextual advertisement: Sony’s WipeoutHD was the first game to have contextual advertising before loading.
In-video contextual advertisement: A YouTube ad for shampoo is shown before a tutorial on how to cut hair.
Native advertising is a type of contextual advertising. Sponsored ads are created to look exactly like native content on a website. This is sometimes referred to as deceptive advertising.
The next frontier in contextual advertising will be behavioral advertising. Behavioral advertising targets users based on their behavior, rather than user preferences.

What’s contextual advertising?
Contextual advertising is the practice of placing ads on pages based on their content.

What’s the difference between behavioral and contextual advertising?
Contextual and behavioral targeting can be easily confused. They are not the same.
Advertisers target context based on the location where the audience is browsing. Keyword targeting and topic targeting are based on the content of the page that the visitor is viewing. You are likely being targeted contextually if you see an advertisement for small business accounting software on a website that helps entrepreneurs manage their finances.
