comScore Doubles the Number of Reported Web Sites in Most Countries to Enhance Measurement of the Internet's 'Long Tail'

    Enhanced Reporting Provides Increased Depth of Reporting and Improved
    Trending Capabilities

    RESTON, Va., Oct. 16 /CNW/ -- comScore, Inc. (Nasdaq:   SCOR), a leader in
measuring the digital world, today announced the availability of enhanced site
audience data in the comScore Media Metrix and comScore World Metrix audience
measurement services. This enhanced capability provides more robust and
granular reporting across global markets and more than doubles the number of
reportable sites worldwide.

    Key benefits of the new reporting capability include:

    --  A dramatic increase in the number of reportable sites
    --  Enhanced view of specific site categories across global markets,
        including more sites in the 'long tail'
    --  Ability to smooth out fluctuation inherent in monthly data trends,
        ensuring that data are available for more time periods and more sites
        to improve trend analyses
    "As the Internet continues to grow globally, it has become increasingly
necessary to provide even greater depth of reporting in specific industries
and across international markets," said Linda Boland Abraham, comScore
executive vice president. "Our new reporting capability enables comScore to
better capture the 'long tail' of the Internet and paint a more complete
picture of the digital world."
    The enhanced reporting will initially be available in all
comScore-published markets outside the U.S., with U.S. and global regions
being available in the coming weeks. The table below illustrates the increase
in the number of reportable sites across numerous key markets.
