Great piece in DNJournal.com this morning referencing Marchex's Announcement partnering with News Corporation (Latin Channel Division) on the development of a bunch of Marchex's premium domain names.
Quote: "Marchex recently acquired more than 100 Spanish-language Web sites from two separate parties (one of them being Paraguay's Chris Chena. Chena, who was featured in our July 2005 Cover Story). The acquired Web sites collectively generated more than 1 million unique monthly visitors for the month of April 2007".
Looks like they paid about $10 per monthly unique for Latin traffic.. said traffic likely coming from a mixture of pure organic type-in traffic but the majority probably from Chris Chena's development of the sites.
Given the staggering number of insanely good domains in their collective portfolio, I'm shocked that Rupert Murdoch isn't cementing his legacy on the Internet by buying Marchex in its entirety. Instead he's busy courting the darling of a bygone era for 8-10 times Marchex's value! Rupert baby... the best assets on the Internet don't come with thousands of staff and projections through 2012 - they are right under your fingertips, on your keyboard.
