AOL this morning announced that it would be acquiring Tacoda, a behavioral targeting (BT) ad network and technology provider (which works with many newspaper publishers). AOL owns the largest online ad network, Advertising.com, and will be integrating BT capabilities into that property as well as others across its network. BT is a form of personalization, which has new momentum throughout the Internet and, specifically, on Google and Yahoo. Deal terms were not disclosed.
iMedia has a nice round-up of ad networks (not exhaustive) for those keeping score on who’s left to buy.
