of Search Engine Campaigns
SALT LAKE CITY--(Business Wire)--
Adobe Summit, The Digital Marketing Conference- Adobe Systems Incorporated
(Nasdaq:ADBE) today unveiled a standard version of Adobe Media Optimizer, part
of Adobe Marketing Cloud. Adobe Media Optimizer is a digital advertising
platform for campaigns across search, display and social media. The new edition,
Media Optimizer Standard, delivers a rules-based bidding solution that improves
the performance of search engine marketing campaigns through seamless
integration with Adobe Analytics. Media Optimizer Standard is designed for media
buying agencies, search engine marketing (SEM) agencies and direct advertisers
seeking more control and transparency over their campaigns at an economical
price point.

Media Optimizer Standard offers an interactive dashboard that gives marketers
the ability to tie data-driven insights to tactical changes in their ad
campaigns across Google, Bing, Yahoo and other search engines. It not only
provides a collection of highly interactive reports in one location, but also
gives marketers the ability to efficiently manage campaigns, ad groups and
keywords directly from the same interface. Additionally, updated Bid Rules
functionality allows advertisers to easily set up and control how bids are
executed and fully automate the bidding process across search engines. 

Several of the existing features in Media Optimizer Premium, the platform best
suited for large agencies and enterprises, are also part of the Standard
version. Since both Standard and Premium use the same foundation, clients that
find the need to upgrade to Premium require no new deployment and are quickly up
and running with powerful algorithmic bid optimization. Media Optimizer`s
seamless integration with SiteCatalyst allows advertisers to use Web site data
to optimize and better target their campaigns in real-time. All of the advanced
campaign management functionalities are also included in Media Optimizer
Standard. In addition, media agencies can layer their own services on top of
both Media Optimizer solutions including more advanced modeling and analytics
services to provide their clients with maximum ROI. 

Migration to Adobe Media Optimizer

Adobe also announced that current Adobe SearchCenter+ customers will be
transitioned to Media Optimizer Standard or Premium throughout the year. All key
SearchCenter+ functionality and features such as a two-way SiteCatalyst
integration were added to both versions of Media Optimizer.
