Big Ad Agency Expectations: Google will “leverage” and “combine” with DoubleClick’s data

From an interview published March 17, 2008, via, with Ogilvy’s chief digital officer (excerpt): “Google and DoubleClick have been partners with Ogilvy for a long time. Half of our clients are on DoubleClick ad serving platform and obviously, we’re buying a lot of media from Google, in the form of keywords. So both continue to be key partners to Ogilvy – as are Yahoo and MSN. From an industry dynamic, it’s going to be interesting to see how Google can leverage the data that DoubleClick has and combine that with the search data to further optimize the display media.”
