Governor of Florida opens an account on one of America’s fastest-growing video platforms
Rumble is proud to welcome Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis to our video-sharing platform. A U.S. Navy veteran and graduate of Harvard Law School, Gov. DeSantis is a valued addition to our community of more than 4 million video creators and public figures.
“Gov. Ron DeSantis is a longtime proponent of free speech and has been at the forefront of the effort to demonopolize Big Tech. He understands firsthand Americans’ distrust of monolithic tech companies and the danger they pose to free expression and free markets. In fact, YouTube recently removed from its platform a video of the governor and a handful of Ivy League-educated medical experts discussing the downsides of prolonged pandemic-related lockdowns. Rumble, on the other hand, invites robust and civic dialogue on our platform, including Gov. DeSantis’ insights and expertise,” Rumble CEO Chris Pavlovski said ahead of the announcement.
Rumble is one of the most respected independent and privately owned companies in the online video-sharing platform industry and its business model is premised upon helping small and independent video creators grow their footprint. Rumble has more than 4 million small creators, with a reach of over 75 million monhtly unique users.
TORONTO, CANADA – Rumble, a video platform focused on helping over two million creators manage, distribute, and monetize their video content, filed a lawsuit today against the multinational technology company Google LLC, “for monetary damages well in excess of $2,000,000,000 that Rumble has sustained and continues to sustain as a proximate result of Google’s antitrust violations.” Because Rumble shares revenue with its content creators, this has harmed them as well.
The complaint charges, “by unfairly rigging its search algorithms such that YouTube is the first-listed links ‘above the fold’ on its search results page, Google, through its search engine, was able to wrongfully divert massive traffic to YouTube, depriving Rumble of the additional traffic, users, uploads, brand awareness and revenue it would have otherwise received.”
Using data from Google and YouTube analytics regarding views of Rumble’s original content videos on YouTube, the complaint also alleges that “Rumble lost a huge amount of revenue on the 9.3 billion views that Google wrongfully directed to YouTube with its unfair YouTube-preferencing algorithms. If even a portion of those 9.3 billion views had occurred on Rumble’s website instead of YouTube, that would have generated well in excess of 100 million additional video uploads to the Rumble platform, which in turn would have generated billions of more views on the Rumble platform, and massive amounts of additional revenue for Rumble and its content creators.”
Because Rumble has exclusive rights to original content videos, it has been able to determine that Google wrongfully self-preferences YouTube over Rumble. For example, even if the Google search term specifically asks for “dog videos on rumble,” Google lists unrelated YouTube videos ahead of Rumble.com’s listings. And, even if the search term asks for an exclusive Rumble video by its exact title, for example, “Baby preciously cuddles cat for nap time,” the Google search page still self-preferences YouTube, even though Google has publicly stated that it gives preference to and “elevates” original reporting in its search results.
Rumble is one of the most respected independent and privately owned companies in the online videosharing platform industry and its business model is premised upon helping small and independent video creators.
“As stated in the complaints filed by the Department of Justice and many state Attorneys General against Google, Google uses its search engine monopoly to wrongfully achieve and maintain monopolies for its many companies, and in this case, we have indisputable proof that it does so for its YouTube platform, harming competition, competitors and consumers. Google’s monopoly power is being used to unjustly and wrongfully deprive Rumble of the views, users, uploads, and consumer awareness, and the revenue for it and its content creators, that would be theirs in an un-rigged marketplace,” stated Chris Pavlovski, CEO of Rumble.
As (COVID-19) continues to spread, Rumble wants you to know what to expect from our services.
As the coronavirus (COVID-19) continues to spread around the world, Rumble will continue to provide its services at the high levels you have come to expect.
With that said, there are three main priorities that are driving our decision making during this crucial time:
1. Keeping our people and our communities safe by implementing a work from home policy for all our team members. 2. Rumble is very focused on continuing to deliver all of our operations at the highest level. We’ve had business continuity plans in place and have designed our business, technology, and customer experience to function flawlessly in an event such as this. You remain in great hands. 3. Doing our part to help slow down and stop the spread of the virus by putting in place a global travel ban for our team members and restricting attendance to mass gatherings and events.
It is also important to note that as coronavirus (COVID-19) continues to spread around the world, Rumble is prepared for an unprecedented drop in CPM (cost per mille) over the next few weeks and especially through April as a result of various factors that lead to lower ad spend which will temporarily affect earnings. We know that as creators this is one of the most important aspects of working with Rumble and we are here to support you every step of the way.
For those of you cooped up at home, we will continue to post entertaining content across all our social media channels and our viral channel per usual. Enjoy, and please stay safe.

We are happy to announce that starting today our registered users will be able to watch Rumble videos ad-free. After lengthy consideration, we feel this serves our audience better as it allows them to access our content instantly and transparently. Please note, this only applies to users that are logged in, so when you share your links with your friends, they will continue to get ads that will support your Rumble wallet.
Boost Your Earnings by 5%
In the same vein, in an effort to make the internet more transparent, we will be giving our creators an option to display how much they have earned on their video. By turning this option on, and showing the benefits of being Rumble’r, we will be giving participating users a 5% revenue boost on all future earnings for a limited time only.
This feature is completely optional and it will only apply for earnings received from the day of activation. Since this feature is entirely optional, creators who wish for their earnings to remain private will be allowed to do so, the revenue boost will not be applied.
To activate the display of video earnings and to begin receiving an extra 5% revenue boost please go to your Account Settings page and toggle the display earnings. You can access this feature under “Revenue Opportunities” on your Account Settings page through this link: Account Profile Page
We’re happy to hear your feedback, and as always we’re working for the betterment of the online creator community by pushing for changes that the bigger and more traditional video sites would deem too radical. Please join in the discussion here: Community Discussion
It’s that time of the year again and we’re happy to bring you some of the top videos from 2017. With so much incredible content uploaded to rumble.com over the past year, it definitely wasn’t the easiest of tasks to put this list together. There’s arguably a ton of other clips which could have made the cut.
With that in mind, we couldn’t be more proud of our community and want to give out a big THANK YOU to all of our creators and viewers. Without further ado, here is Rumble’s Top 10 Videos of 2017! Enjoy…

We’ve finalized a deal with Microsoft to allow MSN views to populate in real-time as Rumble views in your account.
As you all know, third party views can sometimes take up to six months to be reported into your dashboard. With this improvement, we can provide Microsoft’s MSN stats within just a few days. This will minimize the wait time for your earnings to populate and speed up the time for you to hit that cash out button!
This feature went live on August 1st, so starting immediately users will no longer see MSN reporting earnings into their dashboards. Any earnings from the previous 6 months will still be processed as MSN views and may take up to 6 months to become available.
Keep uploading those videos, and as a reminder, 3rd party distribution is only available for videos uploaded under Video Management.
Rumble has been growing at an incredible pace since it’s inception. This year alone our community has grown by roughly 25,000 new users and we’re only 8 months into 2017!
A large part of this growth is thanks to our extremely supportive users who share the Rumble platform through word of mouth and online support forums. Recently, our members have been requesting for more ways they can help grow our user base and increase Rumble’s exposure and brand recognition.
The Rumble team is so proud and grateful to have such a supportive community. So we’ve been working hard to build and launch our new Rumble eStore and We are very excited to introduce our new line of Rumble branded clothing, accessories, and everyday lifestyle items.
We hope our new eStore will allow Rumble’s users and creators show their support for our community in the most personal way yet, and to help spread Rumble’s platform beyond our online presence.
TORONTO–(BUSINESS WIRE)– Rumble announced today that Guruduth Banavar, the former IBM Vice President and Chief Science Officer of Cognitive Computing at IBM and current Chief Technology Officer of Viome is joining the company’s advisory board. With more than 20 years of experience in artificial intelligence, cloud computing, and a range of advanced technologies, Mr. Banavar will use his expertise to mentor Rumble’s technology team to scale the company’s machine learning and AI capabilities across its video platform.
“Guru brings a unique blend of experience that will be valuable for Rumble’s growth. Not only does he have a proven track record of developing and growing AI technologies and solutions with IBM’s Watson, but he is also experienced in applying advanced technologies to solve tough business problems,” said Chris Pavlovski, founder and chief executive officer of Rumble. “Rumble is growing at an extremely rapid pace and Guru’s expertise and mentorship of our technology team will help to propel Rumble’s proprietary video technology to the next level.”
During Mr. Banavar’s 21-year career at IBM, he led the Cognitive Computing group, where he directed business strategy and a worldwide team responsible for creating a range of Watson AI technologies and solutions. As Chief Science Officer of Cognitive Computing, he was responsible for advancing IBM’s scientific ecosystem with leading institutions like MIT, RPI, and UIUC. Mr. Banavar also held the role of CTO for IBM’s Smarter Cities initiative for almost four years, leading global strategic engagements to improve public safety, transportation and other city services to make cities more livable and sustainable. Mr. Banavar currently is CTO of Viome, the first company to offer wellness as a service by applying AI to complex biological data to provide personalized recommendations for healthy living.
“Rumble is making tremendous strides in video rights management, which will be crucial for the future of video analysis and artificial intelligence,” said Mr. Banavar. “I’m excited to be joining the Rumble advisory board at such a pivotal time, and look forward to mentoring the Rumble technology team to drive the next phase of Rumble’s growth by using advanced machine learning with licensed social videos.”
Mr. Banavar received a Ph.D. in computer science from the University of Utah. He has published more than 50 research papers and co-invented more than 25 patents. Mr. Banavar’s work has been profiled in The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, The Economist, and other international media. He is an elected member of the IBM Academy of Technology, has spoken on the Nobel, Aspen, and Milken stages, and gave the 2017 Turing Lecture.
Due to popular demand, we have added a new feature to allow users to delete comments made on their videos. Like our community boards, Rumble has never moderated or removed user’s comments unless they violated our community standards. Rumble will always continue to encourage free speech and active discussion on our platform between our community of creators and viewers.
We suggest our creators use this new functionality to maintain their comment section clear from spam. The Rumble development team has recently implementing several anti-spam measures, however some spam comments slip through our security filters. While we continue our efforts to combat spam, we want to extend this control to our creators as well.
We love our Rumble community and a big part of it comes from knowing that everyone has a right to express their opinion. We hope our community doesn’t use this function to remove other Rumble user’s opinions that may differ from their own. Not only does active discussion build our community, but it encourages virality and distribution of the video itself.
The Rumble team is here to listen, please feel free to continue reporting any spam to our support team at email@example.com. If you have any ideas for improving the Rumble experience, we hope to hear from you as well!
