DoubleClick Inc. said its DART (Dynamic Ad Reporting and Targeting) system served more than five billion ads across 6,400 sites worldwide last December.
The growth has indeed been dramatic. In September of 1998, DART served three billion ads. In November, DART increased delivery to four billion ads.
DoubleClick said DART “continues to emerge as the industry standard in advertising technology with the support of 12 data centers and 130 ad servers worldwide.”
The company said DART is now delivering more ads a day than the number of trades processed through the Nasdaq stock market.
“DoubleClick continues to invest in an engineering team that is monitoring and mapping the Internet to develop a suite of internal products that produce maximum efficiency and scalability,” said Kevin O’Connor, CEO and co-founder of DoubleClick.
DART offers advertisers a portfolio of products and services, 24-hour customer support, real-time upgrades, and the ability to target users by a host of criteria. And it has been internationalized to meet the challenges of managing Internet ad sales across multiple countries operating in different languages and currencies.
