Search Syndication Platform Reinventing Industry
NEW YORK – Another quarter, another record for adMarketplace, the New York City-based advertising technology company.
Revenue from adMarketplace’s search syndication network grew 112% in the first quarter from the same period last year, as it continues to innovate and consolidate the $10 billion search syndication market.
The revenue surge was fueled by adMarketplace’s focus on growing its roster of direct advertisers looking for keyword-targeted traffic outside of search engine results pages. Revenue from direct advertisers jumped 171% year over year, while the number of managed accounts skyrocketed 254%.
“Increasing our direct advertiser base significantly improved our value to publishers, as did launching a transparent interface that allows publishers to build their business,” said CEO Jamie Hill.
By signing more direct advertisers, adMarketplace was able increase its average cost-per-click (CPC) 120% from March 2011 to March 2012.
This, in turn, lead to higher-quality traffic and gave adMarketplace more performance data to better optimize that traffic.
“More advertisers mean higher CPCs and more performance data, which helps us attract more premium traffic – this is a virtuous cycle,” said COO Adam Epstein.
Following a breakneck 2011 that saw year-over-year revenue increases in Q3 and Q4 of 77% and 78%, respectively, this continued growth enabled adMarketplace to double its staff size.
