TechCrunch Sponsors Rock! Thank you to Riya, Text-Link-Ads, Zoho, First Round Capital and new sponsor EV1 Servers (starting tomorrow):


Riya isn’t just about tagging your photos anymore (although it’s still one of the coolest apps I’ve seen). Get ready for Riya 2.0, coming soon.


Zoho has quietly put together one of the best and one of the fastest Ajax office suites. Two examples – check out Zoho Writer and Zoho Sheet, their word processor and spreadsheet applications, as well as the other services they offer. More core office applications are coming in the next couple of weeks.

Text Link Ads

Our sponsor Text Link Ads is a great revenue generator for blogs and other websites. Like Google Adsense, Text Link Ads puts text advertisements on your site. But the monetization seems to be higher for the amount of real estate taken up – ads are a flat rate per month (not pay per click) and each ad is just one line of text.

For a visual of how the ads look, see the bottom of the Mercury News home page (under “Featured Advertisers”).

Text Link Ads also has a blog, The Link Building Blog, where you can find tips on building links to your site as well as news and announcements from Text Link Ads.

First Round Capital

With investments in companies like Riya, Odeo, StumbleUpon, Browster, VideoEgg, Krugle and many others, First Round Capital is the fund to get your business plan in front of.


EV1Servers is a new TechCrunch sponsor (logo to go up tomorrow). They offer 100,000 square feet of data center space with 28 Gbps of bandwidth capacity. The company manages 25,000 web servers on behalf of high traffic sites including social networks, photo/video sharing services and news aggregators. Check it out if you have hosting needs – they have dedicated server plans starting at $99/month.
