LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - Google, the privately held Web search provider, on Wednesday said it had acquired a software company that makes applications for online advertising and managing domain names and other information.
Terms of the deal were not disclosed.

Mountain View, California-based Google said it would acquire Santa Monica, California-based Applied Semantics.

Applied Semantics' software is based on technology which organizes knowledge from Web sites in a way "that mimics human thought and enables more effective information retrieval," Google said in a statement.

One application of that software allows Web publishers to match the Web pages to targeted advertisements, it said.

Don't fret folks the advertising section is for portals with over 1 million pages views per month.
