Pat Quinn from Big Iron Design emailed me this morning to share information for a follow-up to a post I wrote about SuperMedia’s acquisition of “Super” domain names. The company spent quite a bit of money acquiring domain names in the aftermarket, and it looks like they’ve launched a number of them.
Some of their new portals include:
When you visit the websites above, SuperMedia seems to be using a redirect to AskLearnHire.com, followed by an immediate second redirect back to the website you visited (you can only notice it if you watch your url bar change). If you visit AskLearnHire.com directly, you can learn more about the purpose of these mini-websites. It appears that the company wants to build small websites for social networking and interactivity between businesses and consumers. In my opinion, this is a smart move.
SuperMedia hasn’t built all of their websites out yet, as SuperPainters.com, SuperMoving.com, and SuperFlorists.com, which were mentioned in my original article, have not been developed yet. It is very possible that they are testing these portals, perhaps supported by television and/or print campaigns.
