Hark, the world’s largest platform for pop culture sound bites, today announced its Q1 and Q2 total site visits have doubled its total visits for the entire year of 2011, signaling significant demand for its library of audio clips, images, and other popular content. Earlier this year, Hark served up its two billionth “listen” to an audio clip on the site since its launch in 2007, and is currently delivering more than 150 million listens per month in 2012.
To meet the needs of its visitors, Hark.com is now visible as a mobile-ready site, providing users with an appropriate experience for smaller screens and being “on-the-go.” Visitors have access to the full complement of clips and content in Hark’s library, all available through an easily navigated menu and home screen.
“We’ve been seeing simply amazing growth and attention for our library of clips and content,” said David Aronchick, CEO and co-founder, Hark. “From summer blockbusters to the latest political speeches, we’ve been keeping tabs on what people are looking to listen to and share for four years now, and see no reason why we shouldn’t keep expanding our platform.”
Upcoming 2012 Highlights
Hark is the world’s leading platform for pop culture sound bites, receiving more than 60 million visits each month (June 2012), and upwards of two billion listens since its founding, making it one of the 10 largest entertainment / movies sites on the Internet (comScore, 2012). Content from Hark is both viral and interactive and creates a powerful, compelling entertainment experience for consumers and an attractive audience platform for advertisers.
