Blog.com With 8.5 Million Visitors a Month Hits The Sales Block
The category killer domain name Blog.com is hitting the sales block.
Blog.com is being brokered by Sedo.com, and according to its press release has an Alexa Traffic Rank just above 700.
“Blog.com currently hosts a fully-featured online publishing platform that launched in January 2010 with great success.”
“Immediately, the site attracted upwards of 3 million unique monthly visitors and, since then, has grown exponentially. In March 2012, Blog.com welcomed more than 8.5 million visitors that accounted for more than 19.3 million page views.”
“The entire site and its current infrastructure, including its user database, blog database, current software and media data, will be sold along with the domain name.”
“To see how popular the word ‘blog’ is, take a look at the Google AdWords tool — there are more than 151 million searches for the word every month”
Also there is very likely to be a new gTLD application for .blog which many believe will increase the value of the .com.
