Forum communities business CrowdGather has acquired the assets of free forum hosting business, Forumer.com. Forumer, which serves 35 million monthly pageviews across 200,000 active forums, joins CrowdGather’s existing free forum hosting platforms FreeForums.org and Lefora.com in providing a wide range of alternatives to individuals seeking to build communities online. With this purchase, CrowdGather’s network traffic has increased 50% this year to 135 million monthly pageviews and 13 million monthly unique visitors. This is up from 100 million monthly pageviews just prior to the transaction and 90 million monthly pageviews at the beginning of calendar 2011.
“In operation since 2003, Forumer has had a long history as a destination for forum builders,” said Sanjay Sabnani, CrowdGather’s Chairman and CEO. “We are excited to welcome them to the CrowdGather family. Consolidation is taking place at a rapid place on the Internet and forums are no different. We believe that we are building a strong foundation, one which will allow us to become the Company of choice when a forum owner decides to ultimately sell his or her community.”
