Technology job site Techies.com
is offering advertisers the opportunity to target audiences on a local or regional basis through a new ad program. Advertisers and sponsors that so far have targeted their audiences on a national level by advertising on techies.com now can advertise on more narrowly focused sites such as newyork.techies.com and bayarea.techies.com. Techies.com has struggled this year; in May it pulled its IPO, and in June it laid off 60 workers and arranged a $20 million infusion.
