SEO.com now run by Utah SEO firm

Posted by on Jun 20, 2007 in General, SEO

I just found out that Dave Bascom’s Web Targeted was sold to WashingtonVC who was able to acquire the domain name SEO.com for $5 Million. Dave seemed pretty excited about this news on his blog, and I am happy for him. He is a great guy and a very knowledgeable Search Engine Optimizer. They have gotten a bit of exposure (and will probably get more) from this news in the SEO blogosphere. I have found commentary on Search Engine Land, Marketing Pilgrim, and Threadwatch, which are three very popular online destinations for SEOs. It is cool to hear this news happening in Utah (I am from Utah in case you haven’t figured that out).

    Thanks, Chris. I am very excited about this and I was actually trying to keep it on the down low until we had our new logo and website ready to go. When people started posting about it on various blogs, I thought I’d at least say something. Speaking of which, we haven’t even made the “official” announcement and terms of the deal have not been disclosed. I’ll leave it at that for now.

    It’s interesting how things can spread so easily on the blogosphere.

    Hey
    The terms are confidential. Every site has it wrong. One guy makes something up and then its copied all over. Thanks
