The company uses its technology to analyze web pages and return attributes that determine what each page is about. They then classify these attributes into three channels: quality, safety and category. These attributes work together to define the meaning of a page. Peer39 can be used to target away from various types of content such as unverified content, unaligned content that doesn’t match the advertiser’s message, and objectionable content which includes web pages that contain negative or mature sentiment. In early 2011, Peer39 said it was analyzing 47 billion pages a month.
In April 2011, Peer39 partnered with MediaMath. Peer39 has begun to integrate real-time capabilities into TerminalOne, MediaMath's Demand Side Platform (DSP). This allows buyers to buy audience data, and also understand the content on a page when buying and bidding for space in real time across all sources of available inventory on publisher sites.
Founders and Financing
Peer39 was founded in early 2006. The company has raised venture financing from Canaan Partners, Evergreen Venture Parters, JPMorgan, Dawntreader Ventures, and Silicon Valley Bank. Members of the company’s advisory board include David Rosenblatt, former President of Display Advertising at Google; Gordon Crovitz, a former publisher of the Wall Street Journal and executive vice president of Dow Jones & Company; and Eytan Elbaz, a founding member of Applied Semantics.

Andy Ellenthal, a former CEO of quadrantONE, joined Peer39 as CEO in April 2010.
