HISTORY IN THE MAKING

August 8, 2007 marks an important milestone in Quantcast’s history.

As of today, more than 10,000 publishers and several million web destinations — including sites, blogs, videos and widgets — are participating in our Quantified Publisher program.

OUR 10,000TH QUANTIFIED PUBLISHER IS…

We are proud to announce that MakeZine.com is our 10,000th Quantified Publisher!

MakeZine.com is the online home of MAKE magazine, which “brings the do-it-yourself mindset to all the technology in your life.”

The site “celebrates your right to tweak, hack, and bend any technology to your own will,” which we at Quantcast applaud.

THE RUNNERS-UP:

In case you are curious, the 1st runner-up — Quantified Publisher # 9,999 — is Cruise-Addicts.com. Cruise-Addicts.com is “a community of like-minded people who love to cruise and can all benefit from the exchange of advice.”  It has been on the web since 1999.

The second runner-up — Quantified Publisher # 10,001 — is BellHop.com.  BellHop.com is a travel search engine that helps folks “find great rates on lodging for hotels, bed and breakfasts, resorts and even vacation rentals.”

MANY THANKS TO ALL

We are thrilled to have you on board, and thank you for participating in our open ratings model. Each publisher that joins our free Quantified Publisher program improves not only their own profile, but our model of internet audiences as a whole — to the benefit of all.

In celebration, we are holding our first annual Quantified Publisher event here in San Francisco in October. Stay tuned for more details, and email Krista if you want to attend (kthomas at quantcast dot com).
