Built around a portfolio of long standing online forum communities, CrowdGather was founded in 2008 with the vision of unifying and improving forums for the benefit of users, owners, and advertisers alike.
CrowdGather’s wholly owned forum network is anchored by its free forum hosting platform Yuku®–a destination where anyone can build a specialized forum community–as well as numerous branded, niche forums which cater to enthusiasts across different verticals. In 2014, CrowdGather will launch a performance monetization and advertising marketplace for both its own forum network as well as for third-party forum owners who wish to partner to achieve advertiser scale and brand safety requirements. At launch, CrowdGather’s marketplace will allow advertisers the ability to efficiently access a fragmented yet potent forum audience segment, including the company’s hundreds of millions of monthly ad impressions along with additional impressions from participating third-party forums.
CrowdGather’s forum network serves over 12 million monthly unique visitors, approximately 33% of which visit from mobile devices. Approximately 25 million members have registered on CrowdGather sites since inception, resulting in the creation of approximately 75 million discussions containing over 1.5 billion replies.
