According to Xbiz.com, One of the most visited sites in the world has just been sold.
YouPorn.com has an Alexa rank of 81, being the 81st most visited site on the net.
Compete.com shows the site as receiving almost 10,000,000 monthly visitors.
“The buyer of the site is Montreal-based Manwin, which owns Brazzers among many other blue-chip brands in adult entertainment, also said it purchased YouPornGay.com and YouPornCocks.com in the deal with Curacao-based Midstream Media International N.V.”
“Manwin officials did not disclose the purchase price.”
“We feel it is a complimentary acquisition to our network of sites,” says Fabian Thylmann, Manwin’s managing partner. “YouPorn is a pioneer site that has a strong and loyal following.
“We intend to grow the site in the spirit it was created in and the diligence it was maintained with.”
I for one would love to know the price on this site.
I think that would be in the low range of what I have informally heard
A top 100 site… in the porn niche… $XXX,XXX,XXX. Is there any other porn site that ranks higher then them?
My friend says it’s one of the best free porn sites around. He particularly likes the way they categorize and he said they always have fresh stuff.
He’s a big fan of youporn.
Who is your friend? LOL
Lefty or Righty?
@SL – that is too funny..
you’re “friend” tell you….
@tony – his friend is “switchy”
anyways, I would also love to know what this sold for… youporn is one hell of a site..haha
youporn.com was not the biggest porn site. There are about 5 other tube sites that are bigger than youporn. In any case its big transaction.
I can confirm that the sale was under $30m and at about 2 year revenue.
YouPorn.com was a great purchase. It’s the oldest porn tube and for some wild reason had the highest quality traffic out of all the tube sites.
redtube.com being one of them that my ….cough… friend uses 😉
He’s a big fan of redtube 🙂
These porn sites have more traffic than youporn.com
xvideos.com — alexa rank of 46
livejasmin.com — alexa rank of 49
xhamster.com — alexa rank of 56
pornhub.com — alexa rank of 61
Thanks for the research
2 domainers have that much traffic a month I bet if they were to run the numbers. Imagine the value of that and direct navigation. No site development and do some URL forwarding
livejasmin doesnt have as much traffic as alexa reports. all their creatives and popups are served from the site thus high alexa #s.
pornhub is by far the biggest. xnxx.com is another one.
xhamster might have sold as well. Pornhub sold last year.
IMO, you can’t depend on Alexa to deliver accurate numbers. IMO, Compete has the same problem. There are some sites that rank at 200, which only deliver 300K per month, while another site is ranked 550 and generate 3 million+ unique per month. Alexa is good to reflect sites in the top 20.
For example, StatCounter dot com (286,656 unique visits and Alexa 151) and PerezHilton dot com (2,472,199 unique visits & 793 Alexa)
This is really pretty amazing considering it’s simply a website that accepts user uploaded content and posts it. It’s the YouTube idea but instead of Viacom it’s the porn studios who want to shut it down. If you can afford the bandwidth, deflect the legal threats and live with the stigma, it’s pretty easy to throw together.
I read an article that indicated it was owned by someone at an US-based investment firm, who wanted to keep a low profile. Wasn’t this site started in Germany? Maybe it’s passed hands one or more times since then like a hot potatoe.
I guess it’s a sad fact but really these adult tube websites are some of the strongest ones on the internet today. Steady traffic, responsive and straightforward, efficient design. Low level of BS. Simplicity. Irrespective of the subject matter, all sites should strive for these goals in delivering their bits.
Of course, take youporn off the list of such sites (tblop.com). Being owned by a studio can only make it worse.
