Oracle Signs On for Behavioral Target on Dow Jones Online Sites

Share this article:
Oracle Corp. is the first technology advertiser to use interest-based targeting to reach 10 million unduplicated unique visitors each month across the Dow Jones Online properties.


The deal is Dow Jones & Co.'s first major advertising offering resulting from the recent purchase of the MarketWatch free-to-access financial news Web site. Starcom Worldwide handled the media planning and buying for Oracle, Redwood Shores, CA.


Under the terms, Oracle ads will run across The Wall Street Journal Online site at www.wsj.com and sibling properties such as www.careerjournal.com, www.opinionjournal.com, www.startupjournal.com, www.realestatejournal.com and www.collegejournal.com.


Oracle ads also will appear on Barron's Online and at www.marketwatch.com.


The Oracle campaign aims to position the database giant as a thought leader in business integration and intelligence. The interest-based segments are based on subscribers who visit the technology sections or read stories about technology on Dow Jones Online sites.


Technology from Revenue Science Inc. supports interest-based targeting for Dow Jones Online.


Dow Jones debuted such behavioral targeting in June 2003 when it launched interest-based targeting across all its online properties. It has more than 50 advertisers in categories like automotive, travel, consumer electronics, financial services and now technology use interest-based targeting.
