Avails Workbook 101 As our valued Demand partner, we are pleased to have provided you with the Avails Workbook, which gives you extensive information about the publisher inventory available to you through Rubicon Project. We have put together this Avails Workbook 101 to assist you in maximizing your use of the Workbook by offering suggestions on use, information about how the document is structured, and some tips on navigating the multiple tabs and columns.

HOW YOU MIGHT USE THE AVAILS WORKBOOK VOLUME BY GEOGRAPHY TOTAL VOLUME AVAILABLE The most common request from our Demand Partners is for information on the amount of volume (i.e. the number of impressions) available across Rubicon’s inventory. Each individual publisher’s monthly impressions are listed and totaled in each of the Data Tabs 3 - 5.6 (see page 3), in the “Avg Monthly Impressions” column (see page 3).

Impression numbers vary in each Tab (i.e. 3. PUBLISHER AVAILS ALL is the total of all Rubicon Publishers, while 5.3 ENTERTAINMENT ONLY is a subset of publishers from the entertainment vertical).


When you have a campaign with specific geographic targeting needs, the Workbook has impressions broken out by many of our most popular geographies, including all continents and many European countries. If you want details by site, there are individual country columns on 3. PUBLISHER AVAILS ALL, and on each of the Subset Tabs 5.1 - 5.6.

4. GEOGRAPHY & SIZE ALL presents ad impressions, ad types, ad sizes, and other format data by geographical region.

Avails Workbook 101 NAVIGATING THE DOCUMENT Here are a few friendly tips to make navigating the Avails Workbook a little easier



With so many tabs, not all of them can be visible at any one time for you to click on. There are two methods to help with this.

Viewing Size

Decreasing The Size Of The Bottom Slider Bar Roll your mouse over the bar just left of the farthest scroll bar position until your cursor changes

The column headings and totals are done in a large font size, so you can reduce the viewing size quite low and they are still clearly readable. This allows you to see more columns simultaneously, If you are unfamiliar, the size slider is at the bottom right of the screen.

Viewing Multiple Tabs Simultaneously Then holding down the mouse, pull the scroll bar to the right until it is about one inch wide. This will still allow you to easily navigate the wide document while making several more tabs visible.

Using The Tab Manager

In the Excel ribbon | VIEW tab | WINDOW group | click NEW WINDOW (repeat for each additional tab you want to view) then click View Side by Side. On the VIEW tab | WINDOW group |click Side by Side

In the document window, click the tabs you want to compare.

You will find the tab manager at the lower left corner of the document. The first symbol |◀ will make the first tab visible in the bottom line, the last symbol ▶| will make the last tab visible, making them clickable. The two middle symbols ◀ ▶ cause the bottom list of tabs to move one tab at a time to the left or the right.

SORTING All the tabs are fully sortable. Be careful to select the entire data field before sorting. If you sort incorrectly causing the rows and column to no longer correctly match, and you can’t fix it, you can always download the file again from the provided link. The example is a comparison of 5.2 NEWS ONLY and 5.3 ENTERTAINMENT ONLY
