Fotolog enters multi-year search agreement with Google
Fotolog.com and Google today announced a multi-year search technology and services agreement where Google will be the exclusive search and keyword-targeted advertising provider for Fotologâ€™s growing international network.
Google will provide search functionality and advertising across Fotologâ€™s network under a three-year agreement. Fotolog users will be able to search the site for photos, blogs and online communities, and will also have the ability to search the Web from any page. Financial terms of the agreement were not disclosed.
Fotolog is a photo-blogging site with a large audience in Europe and Latin America. With more than 15 million unique users and 3.5 billion page views a month, Fotolog ranks 20th on Alexaâ€™s list of the worldâ€™s most-trafficked websites, 20th in page views in Comscoreâ€™s May 2007 report, and thereby weighs in as the Webâ€™s third-largest social network as measured by traffic.
Fotolog also announced that it is nearing the milestone of 10 million registered membersâ€” a little more than two months after hitting the 8-million mark. More than 4 million new members have joined Fotolog in the first half of 2007, making the site one of the largest independently operated blocks of traffic on the Web. Fotolog is the number 10 site in Spain, according to Comscore, and in Argentina, Fotolog is the number one web domain in the country.
