Demdex captures behavioral data on behalf of Websites and advertisers and stores it in a “behavioral data bank.” The company then score each user across more than 40 behavioral and demographic variables to come up with a “traitweight,” which helps websites segment their audiences better and advertisers target their messages more exactly.
The beauty of DemDex is that it makes the behavioral data portable and puts it in the control of the Websites and advertisers themselves. They can plug it into whichever ad server or service they are currently using.
DemDex’s technology will be added to Adobe’s Online Marketing Suite, which is powered by Adobe-acquired Omniture. Of course, Adobe is looking to grab hold of a the $109 billion online ad market by offering ad optimization via its marketing suite. Of course, it should be noted that the data DemDex collects is based on anonymous cookie IDs and consumers can opt out of receiving targeted ads.
