Clear Channel Radio Selects Omniture to Analyze & Measure Visitor Engagement

Global Media and Entertainment Company Cites Advanced Audio, Video and Social Media Measurement as Key Reasons to Upgrade From HBX Web Analytics to Omniture SiteCatalyst

OREM, UT--(Marketwire - June 8, 2009) - Omniture (NASDAQ: OMTR), a leading provider of online business optimization software, today announced that Clear Channel Radio has selected Omniture SiteCatalyst to drive increased visitor engagement. Through this multi-year contract, Clear Channel is upgrading to SiteCatalyst from HBX Web analytics in order to take advantage of additional capabilities that SiteCatalyst offers, including the ability to measure on-demand audio, videos and other social media entertainment. In addition, Clear Channel expects to gain more flexibility in reporting on the performance of its site's navigation structure, ad campaigns and other elements unique to its business.

Clear Channel joins leading media brands such as Comcast, Cox Newspapers, Discovery Communications, Meredith Corporation, NBC Universal, Scripps Networks and others who already use SiteCatalyst to understand and measure online visitor behavior. Reaching 22MM unique visitors each month, Clear Channel delivers a variety of media and on-demand content via its digital properties, which feature audio streaming, music videos, mobile downloads and entertainment news. Using SiteCatalyst, Clear Channel will better understand visitor interests and media preferences, allowing the company to develop and deliver content that is more relevant to its diverse audience demographics.

"Omniture's best in breed product provides us and our advertisers with true and validated metrics about our audience and their behavior thus creating greater accountability to our clients," said Gerrit Meier, Chief Operating Officer of Clear Channel Radio's digital unit. "SiteCatalyst also allows us to better identify visitor trends and tailor our programming accordingly."

Using SiteCatalyst, Clear Channel will also be able to identify which ads are being clicked on the most -- and which areas of the site ads perform the best -- potentially ranking ad performance by subject matter and site placement. With this information, Clear Channel can ensure its advertising partners are more effectively optimizing their marketing spend.

"On-demand media and entertainment companies are embracing social media as a way to extend their reach to the audiences they serve," said Chris Harrington, president, worldwide sales and client services at Omniture. "As these sites continue to generate higher volumes of visitors, it has become increasingly important to ensure each consumer is presented with media consumption channels particular to their interests. SiteCatalyst helps companies accomplish this objective by providing real-time information on site performance, ultimately driving increased customer loyalty and visitor satisfaction."

Prior to SiteCatalyst, Clear Chanel was using HBX Web analytics -- a product of Visual Sciences, Inc., which was acquired by Omniture in 2008. SiteCatalyst is part of the Omniture Online Marketing Suite -- the industry's first integrated set of optimization applications for visitor acquisition, conversion, online analytics and multi-channel analytics. The integrated suite brings together Omniture's applications following several strategic acquisitions, new product development and an ecosystem of application, agency and services partners that utilize and integrate with Omniture products. Customers can select from Omniture products and hundreds of partner applications to use individually or in combination.
