Founding[edit]

In November 2009, the company announced it had surpassed 200 million monthly unique users.[8] In March 2014, Quantcast reported Adblade's reach at 337 Million global users and 257 Million US users.[9]

Service overview[edit]

Adblade has advertising arrangements chiefly with highly trafficked content providers.[1][8] Websites in its network have included MSNBC,[3] Fox News, USA Today, The Washington Times, McClatchy and U.S. News.[4] Adblade has also worked with MediaPost, specifically developing them a custom Facebook widget called "The MediaPost Feed."[10]

Adblade predominantly serves the United States. Advertisements can be created and uploaded by clients, and may be "geo-targeted" or targeted towards particular interests and demographics.[11] The system allows for monetizing websites and blogs, though websites must meet certain requirements.[4]
