Share Article

Popular sports-blogging platform relaunches to harness growth and bring new features to the 20,000 professional athletes, fans and journalists who host blogs on the site.

SportsBlog.com (“SportsBlog”), the world’s fastest growing sports blogging destination, announced the unveiling of its revamped, highly anticipated website this week. The new SportsBlog brings instant video-blogging, access to professional images, integrated fan-polling and countless other features to the more than 20,000 fan and pro athlete bloggers who already use the site.

SportsBlog’s relaunch comes at a time of increased web traffic and popularity for the rapidly expanding sports brand. In August, SportsBlog was ranked within the list of the top 25 most popular sports destinations (#21) by the leading American analytics company comScore. SportsBlog is also the top-ranked sports website for the highly coveted age 18-34 demographic.

Sports blogging continues to thrive as one of the hottest segments online, underscored by Turner’s nearly $200 million acquisition of crowd-journalism pioneer Bleacher Report and the growth of Vox Media’s SB Nation. SportsBlog is unique in that it is an open platform welcoming any fan, athlete or journalist to start a professional, fully-customizable blog on the site.

Among other new features, the new site includes a powerful full-screen editor (with access to USA Today Sports Images and videos from CBS and Universal Sports), improved revenue-share system and a fully responsive layout that allows access from any mobile device.

“We’re democratizing sports media. With our platform, any fan, journalist or professional athlete can leverage our platform to build their personal brand and reach the masses of sports fans within moments… and earn money in the process,” said SportsBlog CEO Roy Dano.

SportsBlog’s relaunch positions the company for further accelerated growth from its already record-level traffic of 30 million page views a month.

“We’ve re-engineered SportsBlog from the back-end up to deliver performance and ensure responsiveness under even the highest traffic levels, which we anticipate soon, and then some,” said SportsBlog CTO Peter Azuolas. “There’s nothing our new site can’t handle.”
