Yardbarker Network

Yardbarker aggregates news articles about sports from around the web. These articles are submitted by users and voted up in a Digg-like fashion. Amateur writers can also contribute to the site with blog posts about their favorite sports topics.

Sports videos and photos are also aggregated alongside articles.

Professional Athletes like Baron Davis, Greg Oden, Champ Bailey, and Donovan McNabb, and Rajon Rondo contribute weekly blog entries.

While Yardbarker.com is the company’s content hub page, the company also runs a network of 600+ sports blogs, fan sites, and male content focused websites. In October 2008, the company announced FARK.com as their latest network addition as well as reaching 10 million unique people.
