We present a truthful auction for pricing advertising slots on a web-page assuming that advertisements for different merchants must be ranked in decreasing order of their (weighted) bids. This captures both the Overture model where bidders are ranked in order of the submitted bids, and the Google model where bidders are ranked in order of the expected revenue (or utility) that their advertisement generates. Assuming separable click-through rates, we prove revenue-equivalence between our auction…

Shared Winner Determination in Sponsored Search Auctions
TLDR
This work provides techniques for efficiently resolving sponsored search auctions involving large numbers of advertisers, with a focus on two issues: sharing work between multiple search auctions using shared aggregation and shared sort, and dealing with budget uncertainty arising from ads that have been displayed from previous auctions but have not received clicks yet.
Optimal Keyword Auctions with Shadow Costs
Search engines incur shadow costs whenever an advertisement negatively affects user experiences, which damages the search engine’s long-run revenue. We characterize the optimal mechanism for keyword
Bidding to the Top: VCG and Equilibria of Position-Based Auctions
TLDR
A simple allocation and pricing mechanism that generalizes the desirable properties of current auctions that do not have position constraints is presented and it is shown that this equilibrium is the best such equilibrium for the advertisers in terms of the profit made by each advertiser.
Hybrid Advertising Auctions
Facebook and Google offer hybrid advertising auctions that allow advertisers to bid on a per-impression or a per-click basis for the same advertising space. This paper studies the properties of
Scalable Winner Determination in Advertising Auctions
TLDR
The goal of the work is to permit more expressive bidding, thus allowing advertisers to achieve complex advertising goals, while still providing fast and scalable techniques for winner determination.
Hybrid Advertising Auctions
TLDR
The properties of equilibrium are studied and a payment scheme is provided that achieves the socially optimal allocation of advertisers to slots and maximizes publisher revenues within the class of socially optimal payment schemes.
Clustering-Based Bidding Languages for Sponsored Search
TLDR
This paper states that broad matching has undesirable economic properties (such as the non-existence of equilibria) that can make it hard for an advertiser to determine how much to bid for a broad-matched keyword.
Theory of Sponsored Search Auctions
TLDR
Web search engines are becoming an increasingly important advertising medium and on most major search engines, the choice and assignment of ads to positions is determined by an auction among all advertisers who placed a bid on some keyword that matches the query.

Multi-unit auctions with budget-constrained bidders
TLDR
It is proved that it is impossible to design a non-trivial truthful auction which allocates all units, while the design of an asymptotically revenue-maximizing truthful mechanism which may allocate only some of the units is provided.
Implementing Sponsored Search in Web Search Engines: Computational Evaluation of Alternative Mechanisms
TLDR
This work model and compare several mechanisms for allocating sponsored slots, including stylized versions of those used by Overture and Google, the two biggest brokers of sponsored search, and proposes a rank-revision strategy that weights clicks on lower ranked items more than clicks on higher ranked items.
AdWords and generalized on-line matching
TLDR
The notion of a tradeoff revealing LP is introduced and used to derive two optimal algorithms achieving competitive ratios of 1-1/e for this problem of online bipartite matching.

Incentives in Teams
TLDR
This paper analyzes the problem of inducing the members of an organization to behave as if they formed a team and exhibits a particular set of compensation rules, an optimal incentive structure, that leads to team behavior.
