We knew from the start that some sites would flourish with many thousands of users, and that others would serve the needs of some enthusiasts without garnering a huge amount of traffic
Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) July 17, 2008
Last month, LOUD3R used their unique semantic publishing platform to launch a network of 25 websites, each dedicated to a different topic (motorcycles, mixed martial arts, gadgets, etc.) These sites collect the news from all over the web to serve the unmet needs of enthusiasts for all sorts of topics. One stated goal was achieving 100,000 unique hits across the network within their first 30 days. LOUD3R exceeded this goal 2 times over with close to 200,000 unique hits. LOUD3R also announced plans to add 9 new sites to the network, listed below.
"We knew from the start that some sites would flourish with many thousands of users, and that others would serve the needs of some enthusiasts without garnering a huge amount of traffic" says Lowell Goss, founder and CEO of LOUD3R, Inc. "Because of the low cost of launching sites we created a wide network - looking at it as a whole, our aggregate traffic after 30 days is outstanding."
Editors create LOUD3R sites by assembling a source list of websites and a semantic glossary of terms to teach the publishing engine how to identify the best content related to a particular topic. The platform is capable of unsupervised learning, and automatically improves over time through user feedback across the LOUD3R sites.
The newest LOUD3R sites joining the network include:
- PREGG3R - pregnancy
- TODDL3R - parenting
- AMPLIFI3R - guitar
- ROOST3R - motocross
- SPINNAK3R - sailing
- RAPP3R - rap music
- SHUTT3R - photography
- CHOPP3R - custom motorcycles
- SUMM3R - olympics
LOUD3R's combination of human editors and semantic technology allows them to scale rapidly, creating and maintaining a wide swath of websites at minimal cost. LOUD3R owns more than 550 3R-branded URL's, and they will soon reach a total of 35 3R-branded sites. LOUD3R is presenting today at the Twiistup Event in Los Angeles, CA, a conference to connect people from technology, media and entertainment. LOUD3R is based in Los Angeles, and is seeking a series a round of venture funding.
