As Sanjay mentioned, I will be running the day to day operations and implementing new ideas. There really will not be any major changes to the site. The only current impact is that Crowdgather will unload the burden of me having to maintain the server. I can fully focus on community development - which in turn will provide the users of PerC a much better user experience.
(not that owning this site isn't awesome in itself, I don't mean to say it isn't, but I assume that something would come along with that.)
They probably get to decide what ads go on the site and get a cut of that or there's a lump sum. Probably not a big deal.
Everyone benefits from this partnership.
@Happy @Sanjay - does this mean that our PMs are fair game to be analysed to give us "better ads"? Or is the ubiqitous ad for zoosk (a dating site) solely related to my selecting "single" as my status? I'd rather see ads about typology conferences or personal development retreats (i.e. things actually related to this site) than dating ads.On June 9, 2010 CrowdGather acquired Adisn, a next generation Digital Ad Agency that uses relationship data from the social web to enhance targeting. Headquartered in Long Beach, California, Adisn is a next generation Digital Ad Agency that uses relationship data from the social web to enhance targeting. Adisn has proven that the aggregate of web conversations, web profiles, online blogs, and behavior create millions of relationships between seemingly unrelated topics. The company’s technology mines through those relationships and applies the strongest ones to enhance online targeting to the benefit of publishers and advertisers across the web. We call it Relationship-based Targeting.
We do not use your PM's for marketing purposes, but Google adsense usually serves ads based upon the words on the page. Right now the display ads are being provided by Google and they tend to be all over the place. The banner ad I am viewing is for Shutterstock which is am image library. Our goal is to work directly with advertisers or ad networks that have a very tight affinity with the subject matter of the site. We are working towards that goal, but it will take a little time.
Oh goody. I actually have stock in Crowdgather. Maybe you guys can slip me some info every once in a while.
If you know what I mean
LOL- it is difficult to discuss the company and business on forums, but I am always happy to talk to shareholders on the phone.
