New York, New York (PRWEB) May 07, 2014
SportsBlog.com, the world's fastest-growing sports blogging platform, announced today that LakersNation.com,TerezOwens.com, WarriorsWorld.net, and a dozen other leading sports properties have moved over to the site, exponentially increasing its readership to nearly eight million unique visitors a month.
As part of the arrangement, SportsBlog will power the sites and will act as their exclusive advertising sales representative. Content from the sites will be syndicated to SportsBlog’s homepage and to its network of more than 20,000 fan and athlete bloggers.
"This is an incredibly exciting time for SportsBlog," said SportsBlog CEO Roy Dano. "We are on track to be one of the leading online sports destinations.”
Through these partnerships, the site's bloggers and readers benefit from greater access to premium sports content, a wider audience for their blogs and more chances to connect with professional athletes, sports journalists and fans across the globe.
The announcement comes at the heels of other recent changes aimed at enhancing SportsBlog’s marketing and sales strategies. The New York-based company recently closed a $1.5 million round of financing with the Sports and Entertainment Advisory Group (SEAG) and created an in-house sales team that will be led by Salon.com veterans Greg Clements and Priscilla Eshelman.
"Our growth trajectory over the past year has exceeded all of our original projections. We will continue to welcome top brand-name sports sites that are interested in moving to SportsBlog to leverage its large audience, industry-leading technology and in-house sales team," said Dano.
Earlier this year, SportsBlog announced that it has partnered with the NFL PE, National Basketball Retired Players Association, and Women’s National Basketball Players Association to empower their athletes to connect with fans and create new opportunities by blogging on the site.
SportsBlog.com is the world's fastest-growing platform for bloggers who are passionate about sports. The site hosts blogs by superstars, superfans and everyone in between, and makes it easy for anyone to instantly start their own sports blog. It's also the platform of choice for many professional athletes – more of them blog on SportsBlog.com than on any other site.
