Viewpoints 2010 Year In Review

As the year comes to a close, I am pleased to report that 2010 was another banner year for Viewpoints. Traffic to our sites grew by 65%. Throughout the year Viewpoints helped more than 45 million people harness the power of consumer reviews to help shoppers make more informed purchase decisions. We could not have done any of this without our amazing staff (now up to 55+ people) and the 500,000 contributors who wrote reviews, answered questions, participated in forums, and ultimately delivered a compelling combination of content, community and commerce. Through their passion, creativity and commitment we were able to add nearly 1 million new users in the just last 90 days, hitting 4.9 million monthly users in December.

We feel fortunate to be part of the massive changes happening in media and commerce that are being driven by an increasingly socially connected and mobile enabled world.

Here are a few highlights from the year:

Viewpoints Answers launched to provide consumers with answers about specific products and categories
