Port Moody, BC (PRWEB) June 28, 2006
SitePoint (sitepoint.com), a fast-growing online media company and information provider targeting the web professional market, today announced yet another 6-figure transaction through its vibrant online marketplace with the sale of BlogExplosion.com.
BlogExplosion.com, one of the biggest blogging communities on the Web, with over 2.1 million page views per week, lists over 40,000 blogs in its directory, and was ranked as one of the 5000 most popular web sites on the Internet by Alexa.com.
Jeremy Wright, who managed the sale, said he was very happy with the results obtained through the SitePoint Marketplace. “I was more than happy with the quality and quantity of buyers (even at the 6-figure level). I was fielding calls, Skype conversations, PMs, emails, and posts in the thread, often simultaneously,” he said.
“I’m pleased that the owners of BlogExplosion were able to generate so much interest in their site and close a deal.” said Mark Harbottle, CEO and Co-founder of SitePoint. “Our Marketplace has certainly gained a reputation for attracting cashed up buyers – this is not the first sale we’ve seen of this caliber, and I’m sure it won’t be the last.”
The SitePoint Marketplace was featured in the June 2006 issue of Business 2.0 magazine as “the favorite place for web developers to buy and sell web sites.” Over 400 quality web sites are listed for sale every month, and listing fees start at less than $ 10 US.
