Sitelynx and NQL to Share Licensing Revenue From New Marketing Portal -

VisibilityGap.com



Apr 25, 2001, 01:00 ET from NQL Inc.

    SANTA ANA, Calif., April 25 /PRNewswire/ -- NQL Inc. (Nasdaq:   NQLI) today
 announced that its technology has enabled the creation of a portal designed to
 allow British companies to determine the visibility of their brands and the
 brands of their competitors.  Sitelynx, a London-based online marketing
 company and an NQL solution provider, created the brand management portal
 called VisibilityGap.com with NQL's Network Query Language(TM) core
 technology.  Under the terms of their agreement, Sitelynx and NQL will share
 revenue generated from the service.  Sitelynx plans to launch the portal
 June 1.
     VisibilityGap.com uses NQL-based agents to retrieve data on 1,300 UK
 brands by automatically searching more than 20 of the UK's most popular search
 engines, as well as websites associated with the brands.  The search results
 are then automatically delivered to a database where they are calculated to
 create a variety of reports, which provide marketers with insight on the
 prominence of their brands.  Sitelynx plans to add an NQL ContentAnywhere(R)
 server in the near future to allow the reports to be published to multiple
 platforms including wireless devices.
     "NQL technology allowed us to create VisibilityGap.com quickly and with
 important capabilities that wouldn't have been possible otherwise," said
 Graham Hansell, managing director of Sitelynx.  "We designed VisibilityGap.com
 to be the ultimate brand manager, and NQL technology is the ingredient that
 made that vision possible."
     The launch of VisibilityGap.com has been planned to coincide with
 Britain's June election.  VisibilityGap.com will be used to monitor the
 visibility of Britain's three major political parties in the elections to be
 held June 7, analyzing how easily voters found their sites.
     "Sitelynx chose to build this portal with NQL technology because of its
 ease of use and content collection and delivery capabilities," said NQL vice
 president of marketing Denny Michael.  "Our market strategy involves
 partnerships like this one with Sitelynx to create recurring revenue while
 increasing the reach of NQL technology."
