Professor Prebid – unified bidding info in one extension

Last month prebid.org announced release of a new tool Professor Prebid extension.

This is a diagnostic tool which helps to scan publisher websites for header bidding setup and how it performs.

Extension represents the information from /?pbjs_debug=true key collected in user friendly and more convenient manner.

This means that if you want to check and track bidding process, there are 2 ways now to do it:

1. you may add /?pbjs_debug=true key after website’s url [for instance website.com//?pbjs_debug=true] and use browser console,

2. or download Professor Prebid extension.

In the first case you’ll find desired parameters manually, in the second – organized in tables in one place.

Below shown how the information looks like.

Professor Prebid available in Google Chrome only and might be downloaded from the Chrome Web store.
