NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - January 26, 2010) - [x+1], the online targeting platform leader, today announced its new Open Data Bridge™, giving marketers and agencies the ability to simply integrate and use client and third party data for online targeting.

In launching the Open Data Bridge, [x+1] has integrated data from some of the top providers in the industry, with more to come. This will allow clients to focus on leveraging actionable data for their digital marketing campaigns without having to develop the requisite relationships with data vendors or build their own infrastructure.

This gives marketers and agencies a powerful new tool for customer-centric marketing -- reaching just those online visitors who are at the intersection of interest, need and purchase readiness.

Among the high quality data sources available through the [x+1] Open Data Bridge:

--  A clients' own customer data, or data aggregated by their agency
    
--  Demographic data from TARGUSinfo and eXelate -- a rich trove of
    online data on age, income, location, gender, race, and other demographic
    data., drawn from real-time and registration-based sources for the most
    current, accurate and comprehensive information possible
    
--  Purchase intender data from BlueKai, the online industry's largest
    intent-focused, auction-based data exchange, using more than 10,000
    targeting attributes, including in-market, demographic, geographic,

    yield a wealth of actionable information on Connected Audiences™ who
    share similar interests, likes and dislikes, habits, lifestyles, values and
    purchasing habits

    page content, including but not limited to text, images, event data and
    domain information to rate the brand safety of a page
