Rensselaer, NY-based PowerAdz.com
released its AdQuest3D to more than 600 newspaper affiliates in its online
AdQuest3D integrates context-specific editorial content, yellow page listings
and classified ads aggregated from newspapers across the country. The entire
national database is available to millions of consumers through affiliate
newspaper Web sites.
The new program is designed to attract more local advertisers, extend the stay
of users and provide greater revenue opportunities for participating
AdQuest3D’s content, classifieds and business listings are generated
dynamically and returned based on the consumer’s category selection. This
provides advertisers an opportunity to more narrowly target their consumers.
“Consumers get access to an unparalleled national database of classifieds,
coupled with useful tools and editorial content,” said Miki Bucher, AdQuest3D
product manager. “We want to ensure that users find the information they want,
when they want it, and enhance and extend their stay on affiliate sites.”
For example, home buyers can access information that helps them select a
mortgage, make an offer, handle the move, and investigate the schools,
neighborhoods and cost-of-living in their new home town. In its first two
weeks, the amount of time visitors spent on AdQuest3D sites increased by over
700 percent, the company said.
PowerAdz.com recently announced an agreement to license yellow-page directory
data from infoUSA. By early February, AdQuest3D will also include integrated,
category-sensitive yellow page listings. For example, local automotive yellow
page listings will be directly accessible on the automotive classifieds page.
The company said it has reserved 50 percent of the advertising space for
advertisers who can place advertisements across the entire network or target
certain demographics. A portion of the advertising dollars from this program
will be shared with the affiliate network.
PowerAdz.com has more than 650 newspaper affiliates, thousands of
participating business advertisers and 20 state press association
endorsements. Founded in 1996, PowerAdz.com markets its services to newspapers
under the AdQuest3D, CarCast, AuctionHill, ThinkHomes and CareerGold Internet
