TechTarget Launches DesktopReview.com to Support Desktop Purchase Process

New site added under TechnologyGuide.com banner

Needham, MA – June 4, 2008 –  Information technology (IT) media company TechTarget, Inc. (NASDAQ: TTGT) today announced the launch of DesktopReview.com™ to support the information requirements of IT professionals researching which desktop computers to purchase. DesktopReview.com is the fifth site offered under the TechnologyGuide.com™ banner, and joins NotebookReview.com™ in supporting the information needs of buyers of personal computers.

Like the other TechnologyGuide.com web sites, DesktopReview.com will focus on single-product category content, and provide product reviews, price comparison information, product configuration details, with its own user community focused exclusively on desktop computer technologies. TechnologyGuide.com sites offer content supporting end-stage purchase decision-making, and are designed to meet the information needs of the most valuable prospects – those that are ready to make a technology purchase.

The addition of DesktopReview.com further extends TechTarget’s portfolio of targeted IT information resource offerings, strengthening the company’s position as a leading provider of targeted content for IT professionals, and supporting TechTarget’s ongoing, single-minded commitment to delivering ROI for its advertisers through its innovative, targeted online marketing vehicles.

“DesktopReview.com is a logical expansion of the offerings available through TechnologyGuide.com because enterprise IT professionals purchase large volumes of desktop computers as well as laptops, smartphones and mobile computing devices,” said Greg Strakosch, CEO of TechTarget. “In addition to providing content that is complementary to information found on other TechTarget sites, in many instances the leading desktop computer manufacturers already utilize other TechTarget sites in their marketing programs, so we now deliver another, more-precisely targeted, offering from which they can benefit.”
