Abstract

Online advertisers bidding in keyword auctions through Web search engines are experiencing fierce competition. Based on a model of advertisers' rational competitive preference, we propose a novel solution concept called the Upper Bound Nash Equilibrium(UBNE) targeting at modeling the competitive bidding dynamics. UBNE yields the best outcome for search engines, and provides a rational explanation of the bid inflation dynamics on keyword markets.
