$5 Million Domain Sale For SEO.com
DotSause.com reports SEO.com has been sold to WashingtonVC for $5 million.
Dave Bascom said on his blog:
I’m SUPER excited about this change and look forward to the challenge of taking this SEO company to a much higher level. We’ve still got the same great team of SEO experts, plus a few new faces. SEO.com will continue to be a search engine optimization firm, but our website will also offer lots of good stuff like SEO resources, tools, articles, tips, and insight into the SEO/SEM industry.
You can currently find Web Targeted’s web site on the SEO.com domain name.
Hat tip to V7N.
Postscript: Michael Mann, founder WashingtonVC, gave me a statement on the validity of the price of the domain name:
The validity of any transactions of WashingtonVC can only be verified by the company itself. Any information posted online about SEO.com, WebTargeted, or BuyDomains.com did not come from us. In this case we do in fact own an excellent SEO company called SEO.com and another excellent SEO company called Yield Software. All other information you have read is specious.
