Op het moment van schrijven staat de teller op een koude $10.000.000 (reserve met). Het gaat hier wel om meer dan een domeinnaam:
The site has incredible potential. Its current owner, sole-operator, founder, and industry pundit, known as ?Pud?, updates the site?s content and authors the newsletter regularly. Pud has another business however, and regards the site as one of many of his side-projects. Because of this, he does not have the time nor the means to fully satisfy the site's fans and bring the system to full bloom with new functionality features and enhancements. Post-sale, Pud will happily stay on board for a mutually agreeable length of time to continue regularly updating the site?s content and writing the newsletter.
Traffic stats according to PC Data, the authority on Internet traffic:
Ranked #2250 of all sites on the Internet and climbing
124,000 unique users per week
2,646,000 page views per week
Users spend an average 46 minutes per week on the site
As of this writing, the site has 746 original "news" items. There are 27,590 newsletter subscribers. About 300 to 400 news "tips" from readers are received daily -- many more than any journalist in the Internet industry. The message board is a prospering community of active ?dot-commers.? The site's regulars are journalists, venture capitalists, recruiters, programmers, designers, Internet entrepreneurs, and pretty much everyone else involved in the Internet industry. These people are asked by the site, each week, to name 5 Internet companies they think are destined for failure. The results are kept in a secured database.
Met ruim 10 miljoen pageviews per maand is deze site zelfs (net) groter dan ons aller tweakers.net -- maar ze hebben dan ook de hele wereld om uit te kiezen, in plaats van alleen Nederlands-sprekenden.
