New free blog host

Your name?
Anthony Scott

What is your site called?
Out Blogger

How old is the site?
The site was soft launched on May 6, 2006. The official launch and advertising will not likely begin until around June 1, 2006. The site is live and will accept blogs prior to then but is not likely to be very busy.

What is the one unique feature of this site?
Friendly Interface (very easy to use)

Do you make money from this site?
Not yet, but we will monetize the model and probably place a single textual advertising panel at the very bottom of every blog.

What is the main revenue stream for this site?
See #7

If you were to sell this site, how much do you think it would sell for?
We have no plans or intentions on selling the site. It's current value, being brand new and without any significant activities or revenues would be relatively low, probably in the $5k - 10k range.

What are your plans with this site?
Simply put, we plan to offer free fully featured blogs that are easy to setup, use and maintain.

What sites are your biggest competitors?
Blogger

Do you rank well in search engines for this site? If yes, for what search terms?
Given this is a new site, we don't yet rank in the search engines.

How have you promoted this site in the past?
Not yet, we're soft launched now and just seeking some links out, etc. and getting ready to launch some advertising campaigns.

Going forward how do you intend to promote this site?
We'll draw bloggers in through traditional ad models such as contextual advertising through AdSense and Yahoo Overture. The site markets itself in a viral marketing model in that each active blog has a tiny text link at the bottom of every page which lets viewers to that blog know they can get a free blog as well. Finally, when our bloggers post articles, those articles are automatically submitted out via pings to several blog tracking and indexing services. This provides exposure to our bloggers as well as to our service.
