CityGrid Media is an online media company that connects mobile and web publishers with local businesses by linking them through CityGrid®, its local content and advertising network. CityGrid Media owns and operates leading local consumer properties including Urbanspoon, Citysearch, and Insider Pages.
More local data and content for all. New local ads for everyone. And better performance all around. And it’s free. Our #1 goal is to see developers of all sizes thrive in local. We help developers give their local audience a better experience and get paid to do it. The CityGrid® network APIs give developers access to premium local content including user reviews, editorial content, merchant messages & more, across 75K neighborhoods nationwide.
The local advertising market is just plain tough. Small businesses still struggle to see value in online advertising, local sales organizations struggle to make profits and many industry partnerships are not equitable. We know it's hard. So we built something different, something better.
