New York, NY – August 18, 2008 – Epic Advertising (www.EpicAdvertising.com), the New York-based online performance marketing company, announced today that its performance display ad network division, the Azoogle Ad Network, has been ranked the 28th largest ad network domestically (48th largest web property overall in the “Ad Focus” report) for July 2008 by comScore, Inc., the industry leader in online audience measurement. This placement ranks Epic among the very top for specialty or niche ad network players, and within range of the largest horizontal ad networks – while only counting a portion of Epic’s overall traffic, with the rest coming from search via its performance search business. The company’s monthly reach through the Azoogle Ad Display Network now spans more than 40 million unique visitors a month. July marks the first time the company or any of its business units have been publicly ranked by comScore, Inc.
Epic Advertising is a dominant, global performance marketing company, connecting advertisers from all over the world to highly targeted online consumers through display advertising, via the Azoogle Ad Display Network, its award-winning performance-based ad network, and through its performance search business. Epic’s traffic comes from its vast display “reach” – as counted in the comScore report — and through high-performing search marketing.
“These results are very positive for us and highlight an important piece of our compelling overall growth story in 2008,” said Michael Sprouse, Chief Marketing Officer of Epic Advertising. “Our reach via display advertising in the U.S., as these rankings indicate, coupled with the reach numbers we track internally through Search, show a position of strength in the global online marketing ecosystem to the tune of over 22 billion ad impressions served per month worldwide. We are becoming a growing force in providing advertisers and agencies with a wide range of effective marketing solutions, whether through display, search, social network monetization, text ads, video advertising, pCPM and more.
