was founded in January 2010 as a service providing scientific match-ups to its members for “long term and serious relationships”. The free “character analysis” service created by experts is one of the most important services in this website. Match-ups among members are made via a mathematics based system. The mathematical infrastructure is continuously enhanced in the light of information obtained by examining member behavior through data mining. The “disclosure” feature provided by the website is another leading feature of Pembe Panjur. Thus, if they desire the members may only be viewed by their match-ups and the other compatible members. Over 150 thousand new memberships were created during the first 11 months of Pembe Panjur. Monthly page view is approximately 10 million while the number of monthly unique visitors is close to 200 thousand.
