nugg.ad launches new product - Content Targeting

• Offers clients the opportunity to dynamically target their website content to visitors’ interests

• CoreMedia integrates Content Targeting into its latest web content management platform, CoreMedia 6

16th May 2011: nugg.ad has created a new product to make website content more relevant to its visitors. Using nugg.ad’s Predictive Behavioural Targeting technology, Content Targeting, offers clients the opportunity to make a website’s content bespoke to each visitor.

Using anonymous data from surveys and click behaviour, this new product determines the interests of each visitor to a website based on certain socio-demographic criteria (e.g. age, sex, education, income) and product interest data (e.g. motoring, finance, nutrition, FMCG). Even if a user visits a website for the first time, pages—such as the landing page—can be tailored dynamically to suit users’ requirements, without the need for site registration. The website optimisation is fully automated and runs in conjunction with the site’s content management system. CoreMedia is the first web content management software provider to integrate nugg.ad Content Targeting.

“Our Content Targeting allows website operators to focus on visitors because our product sends recommendations to the website’s content management system in real time.  Both sides benefit from this: the website operator achieves a stronger branding impact, longer dwell times and more conversions, whilst the user finds what they are looking for more quickly,” explained Karim H. Attia, chief business development officer at nugg.ad.

Knud Kegel, Director, Product Management at CoreMedia adds: “CoreMedia’s leading position in the market is due in no small part to our role as a pioneer of innovation. By integrating nugg.ad Content Targeting into CoreMedia 6, we can now offer our customers a completely new way of enhancing their content by making it as relevant as possible; it also allows site operators to start communicating straight away with end users without the need for them to register on the site beforehand.”

Content Targeting from nugg.ad can be used in a variety of situations ranging from corporate and product websites, via landing page optimisation, right up to targeting for complex editorial systems. The Predictive Behavioural Targeting solution from nugg.ad is highly efficient, and, with 90% market penetration in Germany, it is the leading targeting system in Europe. nugg.ad Content Targeting is the second solution from nugg.ad that is aimed at the enterprise market. The first was Audience Insights, which was launched in April this year in collaboration with the analytics provider Webtrekk.
