Introducing the Ranker Partnership Program!

Today we are unveiling the new Ranker Partnership Program! Ranker is partnering with select publishers and individual experts who regularly create high-quality lists on our site. We will feature our Partner Lists in a new section of our homepage and throughout our category pages.

Partner Lists will also have added space for branding, a link back to their own site and an “Official Partner” verification checkmark next to their name.

While believing in the wisdom of crowds is kind of our thing here at Ranker, we will admit that sometimes some people do know more about some topics than others. Hey, I won’t ask you about your favorite Kombucha flavors if you don’t ask me about my favorite GPS fitness-tracking apps. Capiche?

But you know who I would ask about GPS apps? The good people over at The Next Web, who are experts on Internet technology. So when a noted authority on a certain topic (that has an active online community who can make our rankings more accurate) makes a list about a topic that they know a lot about, we thought it’d be nice to call that out.

For this reason, we are unveiling some nifty new features that distinguish expert Partner Lists from user-generated lists. Keep an eye out around the site for these new lists. You will recognize them by their “Official Partner” verified checkmark.

Trusted publishers and individual experts have been making lists on Ranker.com for awhile now and we added these new features to make their lists pop and to highlight their expertise.

Many of our partners use Ranker’s killer interface to create a poll on their topic of choice to host on their very own site. Embedding a list is super easy–just look for the “embed list” button in the footer of any new or pre-existing Ranker list.

If you’d like to be considered for our Partnership Program, send us a note. If you want more details, visit this short guide first. In general, our partners are publications or experts who have their own active online communities and some expertise in a certain subject. Most of our partners produce at least one piece of high quality content a month. And remember, since these lists will be featured on our homepage we tend to prefer partners who produce content that appeals to our broad, diverse online community.

By the way, you don’t have to be a partner to use our widget or enjoy Ranker.com. For most of our users, the new Partnership Program won’t change a thing!
