Start Monetizing Forums
A new partnership between ProBoards and VigLink is helping Web professionals generate revenue from their forums.
The partnership enables anyone who creates or manages a ProBoards forum to include a VigLink insert that automatically links mentions of products, brands and merchants to the most relevant and valuable destinations. The technology evaluates numerous signals to determine relevant links within content. In fact, VigLink’s technology learns from live user actions to improve the relevance and commercial optimization of links, which leads to higher click-through rates and more revenue for forum administrators.
“With more than 3.6 million ProBoards forums created, this partnership with VigLink provides an enormous revenue generation opportunity for our passionate forum administrators,” said Patrick Clinger, CEO and founder of ProBoards. “Now those administrators can make money from their free forum by enabling VigLink Insert with a couple clicks in their forum’s admin panel. We couldn’t be happier to partner with VigLink and to make VigLink Insert available to our customers.”
