FlickPeek is an entertainment network and video search engine that offers a wide range of video content and information.
They claim to have indexed more than 30.000 titles of the worlds’ video creations, each entry containing interpreted information such as full description, trailers for movies, air dates, episodes summary and description, video search results and news.
Regarding the video search technology, FlickPeek’s about page states that they ” use algorithms from the domain of computational intelligence and neural networks ( named entity extraction, keyword term extraction) to identify tags, categories and other properties of each video. We apply these algorithms to the crawled content and thus we obtain increased relevancy in our results.”
FlickPeek was one of the top 5000 web properties during the first quarter of 2009, according to Alexa.com. It has since suffered a decrease in traffic and it currently attracts about 1 million unique monthly visitors.
At the present time, FlickPeek is displaying campaigns from AOL/Advertising.com, Yahoo’s RightMedia, FOX Networks and other advertising networks. It also earns revenue from affiliate fees by referring people to buy related DVDs or by signing them up for premium Usenet/Netflix subscriptions.
