After months of talking and negotiations I was so happy to hear that Web Targeted’s deal with Washington VC went through. Mike Mann the man behind Washington VC owns a lot of generic key phrase domains like software.com and phone.com. So it should be no surprise to that during this negotiation and acquisition that Mike would think about buying seo.com.
The last I heard the seo.com deal was being sold for a percentage of the new WebTargeted SEO Company and a partial upfront payment. I had no idea that Mike would go up to (amount removed per Mike Mann’s Request). To quote my current boss “HOLY!” crap. I know they were throwing around a few other domain names like seopitmists.com, but seo.com is much better.
The term or abbreviation SEO however, is searched for less than the actual word “search engine optimization” but having seo.com will definitely give the new Web Targeted huge national recognition and new clients. I just hope its (amount removed per Mike Mann’s Request) worth of new clients in less than 5 years, that’s a great break even margin I think for a domain purchase that size.
It’s a little weird seeing the seo.com domain having a real website rather than the ad sense directory garbage that was on it before. I am sure I’ll get use to it. But it’s a great change; it’s good to know that the domain seo.com is being used for what it was meant to be used for.
Questions To Ponder:
- If Mike Mann has (amount removed per Mike Mann’s Request) to spend on just a domain name then heck, how much has he pumped into the new WebTaregted?
- Will they be a major player in the fortune 500 Market Space for search engine optimization? Only time will tell.
- Will Mike Mann be able to keep all his new ventures a float all at the same time? Phone.com, Software.com, SEO.com, and many others. Paul Allen (Provo, Utah’s Paul Allen) had a hard time with it. Can Mike Mann pull it off?
