All indicators suggest that advertisers are growing more concerned about where their ads are placed, and we are constantly searching for opportunities to expand our network of reputable publishers to accommodate such concern.

Leading online advertising solutions provider Wanmo Performance Advertising recently announced it has signed NetEase (NASDAQ: NTES), one of China's top Internet portals and online game services providers, to its performance advertising network, and has already begun selling its remnant ad inventory on a pay-per-click basis. The addition of NetEase significantly expands Wanmo's high quality performance advertising network, and greatly reduces risk for leading brand advertisers in China by allowing them to enjoy the benefits of performance-based advertising on sites they know and trust.
"This represents a significant milestone for the performance-based advertising industry in China," said Micah Truman, CEO of Wanmo. "It largely eliminates the risk for advertisers of associating their brands with low quality, non-reputable publishers, and enables them to gain the benefits of performance-based advertising."
Advertisers previously had to use ad inventory from performance ad networks that placed their ads on relatively unknown Web sites, while up to 80% of premium advertising space remained unsold. But now, by leveraging Wanmo's high quality performance-based advertising network, advertisers can access this premium space and track performance, bringing them closer to their target consumers and ensuring strong returns on their investments.
In past 12 months alone advertisers have spent over RMB 1.2 billion on performance-based advertising media, up from RMB 50 million in 2001, making it the fastest-growing advertising media segment in China. Wanmo expects that figure to grow even more quickly, as advertisers increasingly opt for high quality publishers to place their ads.
"This is just the beginning," Truman said. "All indicators suggest that advertisers are growing more concerned about where their ads are placed, and we are constantly searching for opportunities to expand our network of reputable publishers to accommodate such concern."
Wanmo is already using NetEase's ad space for performance-based campaigns for top brands such as Kia, Lancome and Stephanel.
Commenting on his company's decision to partner with Wanmo, NetEase COO Michael Tong said: "NetEase is very pleased to be a part of Wanmo's performance advertising network, and we look forward to a long and successful cooperation."
