Monetize Your Online Data

Every day you hear about companies that are leveraging your data to make money. We want to do the same, but we tell you up front and we give you a nice incentive for your participation. Unlike other sites, we aren’t using this data to sell you anything or to show you ads. We use it to provide research and analysis on what people like you do on the internet, which helps create a better online experience for everyone.

How It Works

Installing SavvyConnect sends us information on where you go and what you do on the Internet. We aggregate that data to provide behavioral metrics, such as what TV shows people watch online, where people shop online, what people search for, and other similar insights.
