Image representation is a key step in image advertising recommendations. Traditional image representation methods, based on the local description, generate a histogram of visual words to represent images. However, it is very difficult to establish a discriminative and descriptive codebook with the local description only. Therefore, we propose a novel image representation method by integrating visual saliency, color feature and local description. Moreover, the proposed multi-cues image representation has been applied to a new image advertising scenario, i.e., delivering image advertisements in a list of images, such as the results of an image search. To evaluate our proposal, we have crawled a dataset, named Pop2016, which consists of image lists and advertising images with 31 pop labels. The performance of the advertising recommendations is measured in terms of the precision@n and the mean average precision. Experimental results show that the proposed algorithm outperforms several traditional methods.
