Although these inefficiencies cannot be resolved through publisher side actions, attribution methods that measure the campaign uncertainty can serve as an alternative solution to help advertisers adjust their strategies.

Attribution creates a virtual competition between publishers, resulting in a team compensation problem. The equilibrium ...
