Media Options Launches Slang.org

Slang.orgI don’t know about you, but whenever I see an acronym I don’t understand (oftentimes on domain forums and Twitter), I type it into Google to see what it means. More often than not, one of the first three search result is a page from Urban Dictionary, and they do a pretty solid job of giving me the definitions of popular and even some less used acronyms and slang terms.

Andrew Rosener of Media Options emailed me to let me know his company recently launched a website on Slang.org, a domain name he acquired in April of this year. The website is more of a search engine play, and the company intends to compete directly with Urban Dictionary and InternetSlang.com. The company has spent quite a bit of money on research and development, and that should help pay dividends.

According to Andrew, “we expect to have tens of thousands of indexed pages in Google within 6-12 months, and our objective is to become a top 25,000 Alexa rank website.” He is looking to become “a go to source for urban slang and acronym lookups.”

Although Slang.org has been seeded with thousands of slang terms, sayings, and acronyms, the website is going to rely on visitor contributions to help generate additional content. People are able to suggest new terms as well as share terms they find useful or humorous through various social media channels.

In case you are curious, Digimedia owns Slang.com, and it will be interesting to see if the launch of Slang.org has an impact on the traffic to Slang.com.

  1. Not a fan of the .org, I know it works in certain situations, the price of the .com just went up… but it could have a twist for some good ad revenue

  2. Seems like a strange market to jump into. How does Urban Dictionary drive revenue? I see very few ads on their site. They have a hell of a social media following, maybe there’s more advertising opportunities in that than anything.

    Just visited slang.org. First impression, not as visually pleasing as Urban Dictionary, and way too much going on.
