Andrew Rosener: Slang.org is “Kicking Ass”

16

Slang.orgI want to share an update about the success of Slang.org, a website that was launched in December by Media Options. When I published my article about Slang.org several months ago, I promised that I would follow up, and Andrew Rosener was kind enough to give an update on how this search engine play is performing.

According to Andrew, “the site is kicking ass.” Slang.org is now seeing 7,000 unique visitors per day, and it makes $25 a day in revenue. The primary reason for why it is doing so well is that the website currently ranks on page one in Google for almost 4,000 words or phrases. That’s pretty solid considering there are 10,000+ pages indexed in Google on the website.

In addition to seeding the website with definitions of popular slang words, Slang.org also relies on user and visitor submissions. Andrew reports that the website is currently seeing somewhere around  20 user submitted slang terms per week.

While $25/day might not seem like a lot of money to some people, that’s close to $10,000 in annual revenue with minimal ongoing marketing, advertising, and upkeep costs. I am sure they spend time to keep spam off the website, but it’s a nice revenue stream that will probably continue to grow until Media Options decides to sell the website.

If you have any questions about Slang.org and its growth, I am sure Andrew would be happy to share some insight with you.

    • Brilliant idea and execution. Simple, useful, and fills the need for a generic slang site better than any out there now. But the AdSense ads have to be changed. You’ll make TONS more money if you change the background of the 2 AdSense units from white to match the gray background of the site. Blend them in.

    • Hey your captcha wont let me submit anything, but here is one you should add on SMH:

      Acronym for ‘shake my head’ or ‘shaking my head.’ Usually used when someone finds something so stupid, no words can do it justice.

      Currently you have a definition I have never heard, shake my hand.

    Congrats!

    Asa rule of thumb domainers make terrible developers and viceversa….
    nice exception.

  2. Congratulations to Andrew Rosener, the data on slang.org is impressive.

    I know that Andrew Rosener is quite happy to critique newbie and novice domainers domains, so I’m sure he won’t mind me being constructively critical about the website slang.org

    On visiting slang.org I was under the impression the site belonged to HugeDomains.com but this appears to be a banner, the site is too text heavy and basic for a platform receiving that amount of traffic, I would produce a more graphical friendly interface, and spend money on design.

    It’s a shame that domainers spend good money on a domain, create a site with good infrastructure but haven’t spent a cent on design. Just doesn’t make sense.

    But that might distract from the PPC. If your only goal is the click rather than user pleasure/and the click its rather obvious.

    Nothing personal, just an observation.

  3. I wonder how do they make $25 a day. They don’t sell anything don’t have any banners on it’s website. Is there something I don’t understand about it ???
