Boulevards Cracks Quantcast 500
Boulevards network, at 360, now ranks among Internet’s most visited properties
Chicago, IL., July 14, 2008 – The Boulevards network now ranks among the top 500 properties on the Internet, according to traffic ratings compiled by Quantcast Corporation.
As of July 11, Boulevards’ city guides and local information services achieved a rank of 360 among Internet destinations tracked by Quantcast.
“We are pleased to be counted among the world’s largest Internet properties,.” said Boulevards CEO Dan Pulcrano in an announcement at the Associated Cities Geodomain Expo in Chicago.
“Quantcast has performed a tremendous service for the industry by becoming the first ratings service to transparently aggregate data from multiple sites into a unified ranking. This is the Forbes 500 of traffic ratings.”
“Before, many companies flew under the radar and lacked visibility because their traffic was distributed among a network of URLs,” Pulcrano added. “Now, Quantcast adds up unduplicated traffic data from all of a company’s services, then publishes and ranks the results for all to see.”
Boulevards’ rating includes aggregated traffic from Boulevards’ high profile city guides, which include LosAngeles.com, Seattle.com, Philadelphia.com, Denver.com, Dallas.com and Houston.com as well as the popular MovieTimes.com site, formerly known as “Mr. Movie Times.”
Boulevards reaches a combined total of 50 million users each year, delivering more than 300 million ad impressions annually.
