Built specifically to help digital website’s drive audience engagement, increase traffic and earn new, additional revenue, the Trending Content feature of CuratorCrowd® is a turn-key solution. It generates high-quality recipe content and video through a proprietary platform.

Stephan Wingert, Regional Vice President/Publisher AIM Media, stated “These CuratorCrowd® recipes and videos have proven to be a big hit with our readers. On our websites people get to see recipes from their neighbors alongside submissions from around the globe. Not only has this partnership increased our website traffic and engagement, we also receive revenue. Launching the program was easy and we are pleased with the results.”

“The featured content is from the award-winning and largest collection of user-submitted recipes to AHM’s Just A Pinch Recipes,” said Jerry Lyles, Chief Development Officer for AHM. “And the revenues associated with the display of this highly desirable content is significant.”

This expansion of CuratorCrowd® follows on the heels of AHM’s introduction of the Recipe Box Plugin™, a powerful cloud-based recipe storage solution for food publisher and blogger websites that increases user engagement and creates an onsite central hub for saved recipes from around the web. That proven technology, based on 8 years of development, already powers over 2 million online recipe boxes with more than 24 million saved recipes from over 24,000 different food sites and blogs.
