Feedster, Inc., a rapidly growing Internet search engine and ad network that provides timely and meaningful information from blogs, news and information syndicated using RSS, teamed up with Starcom Worldwide to deliver Sun Microsystems' first RSS ad campaign. As the second highest traffic driving mechanism of SunÂs recent quarterly web event media plan, Feedster validates RSS and blogs as a medium to deliver timely and meaningful information and advertising.
Blogs provide open and direct communication for individuals and businesses alike. Readers can subscribe to feeds to receive the latest posts and actively communicate with authors and readers. The Feedster Media Network, a blog and RSS advertising network, provides a means for companies to reach the blogging community and subscribers to feeds. Feedster provides a fresh index across nearly seven million sources several times per hour, adding millions of new documents daily.
ÂStarcom recognizes the synergy between this new format for publishing and the shift in audience behavior. We selected Feedster to integrate our message within relevant and timely content and deliver it to an audience that would help us extend our message,Â says Brandon Starkoff, Associate Director, Starcom Worldwide.
ÂBlogs provide individual and community voice. They also extend their voice to multitudes of people through feeds. Feedster reaches the audience of millions of blogs and delivers a non-obtrusive, opt-in advertising format in RSS,Â said Chris Redlitz, VP, Feedster, Inc. ÂWe provide the opportunity for blog publishers to monetize their efforts with relevant advertising from advertisers like Sun.Â
