Looking Back to the Future: 2014 in Review

2014 in Review

Looking Back to 2014

 

2015 is upon us, and although we don’t have our hoverboards or time traveling DeLoreans, this year is shaping up to be monumental for GeoRiot.  As we move into the new year and approach our 5th birthday this February, we wanted to take a look back at all of the incredible milestones that you helped us achieve in 2014!

2014 was a busy time. For the second year in a row, total clicks served was well into the billions and we saw fantastic triple-digit growth in our client base over the year. In addition, we have added all sorts of new features to our service:

January

  • We released the Groups page and the ability to add Affiliate Overrides,” making it easier for you to organize and track collections of links, as well as allowing you to “override” the default affiliate parameters when needed.

  • Our support for the Amazon Associates Program came out of its beta phase, bringing globally aware affiliate linking to the Amazon ecosystem. An enormous milestone in GeoRiot history!

July

  • A Genius is born. We released the all-new “geni.us” links domain: which allows you to better connect your paying customers with the products they want to buy. Genius links help you bridge the “Purchasing Gap,” with the addition of all new “advanced targeting” rules and a full whitelist of supported domains.
