High Gear Media Content Now Available on Yahoo!

By jeff  |  January 9, 2009  |   blog

We have a nice bit of news to share: Because of a brand-spanking new content distribution agreement we’ve done with the good folks at Yahoo!, our unique  “meta” reviews from the crack editorial team at TheCarConnection.com are now available on Yahoo! Autos.

We’re excited because this brings our team’s work to one of the automotive industry’s most trafficked properties, to the tune of about 5 million unique visitors every month. This new relationship also expands our growing list of syndication partners, which includes agreements with AutoTrader.com, Oodle.com and Glam Media.  (There’s more coming.)  It’s all part of our strategy to take our content anywhere users are online, and deliver all the details they need make utlra-informed car buying decisions. It’s also pretty solid validation that key players are taking note of what High Gear Media is building.

When you consider these deals  (plus Oodle classifieds going out to Facebook and MySpace), we are as a startup very likely now the most widely syndicated, widely available car review content on the web.

Under the agreement, Yahoo! users will have access to our review content for both new and used cars.  As you know, our editors at TheCarConnection.com  use review format making it easier than ever to research cars online – on one site. Our expert editorial team supplements their own opinions of each car by consulting expert reviews from many reputable sources, including Kelley Blue Book, Consumer Reports and more. They combine their research with their own impressions to form a single consensus review.

To top it all off, we have some super top secret (yeah, we could tell you, but then we’d have to…) technology to show you the most important reviews from elsewhere on the web for every car. The result is the most well-rounded, comprehensive view of automobiles on the web.

We’re cooking up all sorts of additional cool things to tell you about, so stay tuned.  You can follow us on this blog, or via Twitter or Facebook.
