We are an online advertising technology company. In 2007, we pioneered the ad network optimization category with the goal of helping website publishers make more money from their unsold ad space. In nine short months of offering our service we're now optimizing more than 11 billion ads each month for 1300+ customers (including some of the world's largest publishers) across 240 of the top ad networks, reaching more than 240+ million unique Internet users.
