FOSTER CITY, Calif., Jan. 23, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- QuinStreet, Inc. (Nasdaq:QNST), the leader in vertical marketing and online media, announces its participation as a publisher on Google's DoubleClick Ad Exchange. The Ad Exchange is a real-time online marketplace that facilitates the buying and selling of remnant advertising space between ad networks and agencies and large online publishers. Webopedia.com, ranked among About.com's "Top 10 Most Useful Websites, 2011" and a core media site in QuinStreet's B2B portfolio, joins other premium websites reviewed and approved by Google for inclusion in the DoubleClick marketplace.

Webopedia.com is an online computer dictionary and Internet search engine for Internet terms and technical support. About.com says, "This is a truly useful resource for every computer user."
