Talk-Sports to NBC Sports

Today, I finalized a deal with NBC Sports to sell them my Talk-Sports.net website. It should be a good deal for the users, I know it was for me ;-) NBC plans on rebranding the website in the coming months. Likely candidates include GiveMeSports.com. I'll continue to manage the website for the next months until we can transfer the hosting and domains to NBC. Once the hosting and domain are tranferred, NBC plans on neglecting the website and eventually turning it off without notice.

Worth $688,008

I stopped by dnScoop today. It's a service that estimates the value of a website based on Google PageRank, indexed pages, links, etc. I was pleasantly surprised to find Talk-Sports now estimated at $688K. Nice! Any takers?

$91,778

dnScoop now values Talk-Sports at $91,778. I still think it's worth 10 times that.

I think I just purchased talk-sports.com for $247.

Update: I did! And it's active. I'll transition to the new domain sometime this month. The old domain will continue to work also.

Talk-Sports.net Trouble

Yesterday, talk-sports.net got very sluggish and sometimes even non-responsive. This was do to the amount of traffic on the Web application. That's a nice problem. It means were growing and we need more resources. I moved things around a bit and things seem to have stabilized. Now, I'm considering what to do next so that this doesn't happen again. I checked the value of Talk-Sports on dnScoop and it's currently valued at $43,248. I think it's worth a lot more, because dnScoop picked up a PageRank of 0 instead of 4. Further, Alexa ranked Talk-Sports 121,398 last week and once you crack the top 100,000, your value should skyrocket. I'd like to sell it for $100,000 to somebody that can give it better server resources.

1986 World Series

Bottom of the 10th. Redsox lead 5-3. 2 outs and the bases are empty. 1 out away from their 1st world series since Babe Ruth left town and a pixelated Mookie Wilson comes to the plate.

talk-sports.net

This blog has been so popular and a lot of readers have asked me to setup a more complete forum, that I've decided to buy a new domain and host it there. I decided on talk-sports.net. Over the next few weeks, I'll transfer all the blog entries to there and redirect this blog. I'm also gonna setup a lot more blogs, forums and services at the new domain. Stay tuned.
