Long Description:

Ranker is a crowdsourced platform that consumers visit 9 million times a month to view, rank, and vote on broad opinion-based questions ranging from the yummiest gluten-free crackers to the most attractive celebrities to the top inexpensive cars. Ranker is the “Yelp for everything else”.
To consumers, Ranker is a publisher (80 million+ monthly pageviews, Quantcast Top 100 for mobile web). Equally importantly, Ranker is a fully-semantic consumer data collection machine. This data produces continually updated rankings across 1000s of topics with intrinsic value far beyond regular pageviews and has in parallel built an “opinion graph” (people who like X also like Y, and think Z is expensive) with over 7 million “edges”. This data has immense value to market researchers, ad agencies, ad targeters, and other enterprise customers who derive value from consumer psychographic behavior
