lijit.jpgSocial media search company Lijit has secured $3.3 million in Series B funding.

The round was led by Boulder Ventures and joined by existing investors Colorado Fund I (High Country Venture) and Brad Feld. The round brings total funding for Lijit to $4.2million.

Lijit’s search service allows readers to search blog publishers’ posts, bookmarks, blogroll, and more from a widget placed on the publisher’s property; essentially a one point box to search any published material from a company or individual no matter where it is, be it on blogs, Flickr or other social networking sites.

Lijit’s search statistics can be utilized by publishers to better understand what users search for on a particular site when they visit.

Peter Roshko, General Partner at Boulder Ventures will join Lijit’s Board of Directors as part of the deal.
