IZEA Announces UnityRank in IZEAx


Proprietary Influencer Ranking Algorithms from TapInfluence
Acquisition Now Upgraded, Refined, and Available in IZEAx

, Inc. (NASDAQ: IZEA),
operator of IZEAx®, the premier online marketplace connecting brands and
publishers with influential content creators, has announced the launch
of UnityRank in IZEAx. The new influencer scoring algorithm affects how
influencers are surfaced to marketers when using UnitySearch within the
system. It is the first example of technology migration from the
TapInfluence platform to IZEAx.

"UnityRank builds upon the robust algorithms that TapInfluence has
developed over many years of refining their influencer discovery tools,"
said Chris Staymates, Vice President of Engineering at IZEA. "We have
leveraged Tap's core technology and augmented it with IZEA's proprietary
data enrichments such as InRank, Discovered Tags, and Discovered
Demographics. The end result is a better search experience for
marketers, helping them quickly find the right influencer for their
sponsorship opportunity."

TapInfluence's discovery suite was a core differentiator that IZEA
identified prior to the acquisition of the company. The migration and
enhancement of the TapInfluence search scoring algorithm represents the
first technology migration between platforms since the acquisition was
completed at the end of July. IZEA's engineering team is actively
migrating additional aspects of the TapInfluence discovery suite into

UnityRank is available as part of UnitySearch for all IZEAx partners
today. To learn more, or to schedule a demonstration, visit
