Sydney, 15th September 2011 – Adconion Media Group has further strengthened its position in Australia as one of the fastest growing operations in digital advertising, outpacing Google over five consecutive months to become the highest reaching distribution platform in the country.

Figures for July released by comScore show that the audience reach across the Adconion digital distribution platforms, Joost and Adconion Direct, now exceeds 67 percent of Australian internet users. This represents a competitive advantage of 13 percent against the Google Content Network and nearly 11 percent more than Valueclick.

Alex Littlejohn, President Asia Pacific for Adconion Media Group, attributes the success in beating Google for pole position over the past four months to the recent restructure and the professionalism of the staff.

“Restructuring at the beginning of this year took the emphasis away from Adconion as an ad network and focused us on what we needed to do to deliver our customers the best performing distribution platforms. The team has worked hard to bed in the new channels, new products, technology and services around our new platforms for brand and direct response and this has clearly paid dividends,” said Mr. Littlejohn.

“That Adconion digital distribution platforms deliver an audience reach that is 13 percent greater than Google is great news for media buyers and advertisers,” Littlejohn concluded.
