Quigo Expands AdSonar's Entertainment Vertical With Addition of OKMagazine.com

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - January 16, 2008) - Quigo, a leading provider of innovative performance marketing solutions for advertisers and premium publishers, today announced that OKMagazine.com, one of the foremost sources of showbiz and entertainment news, will deploy a private label version of Quigo's AdSonar platform.

Advertisers in the AdSonar ad program have the ability to choose from a variety of targeting options; by individual pages, sections, topics or keywords. Advertisers can purchase site-by-site or across the many hundreds of premium sites in the Quigo network. These options arm advertisers with the knowledge of exactly where their ads will appear and the ability to optimize their campaigns on a site-by-site and placement-by-placement basis. In this way, marketers can maximize their brand exposure, generate more sales and increase the efficiency of their online advertising spend across some of the most recognizable sites on the web.

"OK! Magazine is dedicated to delivering our readers and advertisers with relevant content and offers," said Jay Gissen, Director of Web Development at OK! Magazine. "With Quigo, we found a technology platform that will allow us extend our brand reach and deepen our advertiser relationships directly instead of through a third-party network."

"OK! Magazine is a leader in the entertainment space," said Kevin Fortuna, Quigo's Chief Strategy Officer. "Advertisers will now be able to extend their reach to another premium audience while OK! Magazine optimizes its monetization and user experience."

OKMagazine.com adds key inventory to Quigo's robust network of entertainment-centric content. The site joins a roster of other, premier Quigo-enabled entertainment sites including People.com, EntertainmentWeekly.com, STARMagazine.com, Hollywood.com, and the Entertainment sections of more than 200 local and national newspaper and television sites.
