‘News Native Network powered by Taboola’ will launch on Thursday 21 February.
News Native Network powered by Taboola will be an integrated native content creation, booking and distribution platform.
The native marketplace will deliver content solutions that build brand awareness all the way through to referral generation and conversion.
News Digital Networks Australia managing director Julian Delany said: “News Native Network started as a branded content creation and distribution platform to great success.
“The next step in its evolution is to enrich our capability by way of a full-funnel marketplace.
“Securing Taboola as our single partner is key to the expansion”.
News Corp Australia’s managing director of digital solutions Neil Robinson said: “There is increasing demand from our clients and partners to get their content in front of quality audiences in brand safe and trusted environments.
“Our native marketplace will allow us to deliver just that and become a very important part of our content and performance marketing ecosystem.
“It’s incredibly exciting as there is no offer like this in market”.
Customers will be able to buy the full suite of services through their News Corp Australia representative.
The native marketplace also offers trading flexibility including the opening up of programmatic content recommendation buying through News Corp Australia.
Taboola customers will be able to buy content recommendations on a network basis through their Taboola representative.
Taboola CEO and founder Adam Singolda said: “We are committed to supporting quality journalism, and Australia is a critical market for our business.
“We are honoured that News Corp Australia has chosen Taboola as a key discovery partner empowering users to discover things they may like and never knew existed during those ‘moments of next,’ when they are most open to discovering content they may like”.
The partnership will see News Corp Australia implement the Taboola Feed on desktop, mobile, web and in-app across its leading digital network, reaching over 13 million people every month.
