Business Description

This is a space-focused news site that was once included in Google News (we ceased publishing content and have since been removed. It was not removed for any violation of TOS and, to our knowledge, would be approved if submitted). The last year it has focused on an arbitrage, making money via buying vs selling ads.

How does your business make money?

Ad arbitrage consists of buying traffic at one rate and selling advertising at a higher rate. In this case, traffic was obtained via various advertising partners and sold against ads provided by third-party publishing partners.

Why should someone buy this business?

This is a proven commodity. This site has generated substantial profit in the past and can be used for any ad arbitrage operation.

Why are you selling this business?

We are currently transitioning from running ad arbitrage operations to providing buyers with the opportunity to run their own.
