What is the 3rd largest B2B segment of the internet?

 4:27 pm on Jun 22, 2000 (gmt 0)

From time-to-time I get a few chuckles from people when I show them my first site [joefarmer.com] I built five years ago. I finally have some backup:

If you don't mind, how many pageviews per month is JF doing?

It is most seasonal site I have ever been around. It isn't so much quantity as it is quality. We are so targeted, the ad rates are quite high by todays standards. We had a run of high cpm banners last fall and one running right now is also choice. That's what delivering a targeted/surveyed proven audience can do.

10-4 on the targeted part, and $60 is pretty phenom. They'd better be selling combines and/or agri-chems left and right.

How they going to get the users they want without targeted advertising? If they don't have offline pubs or outlets as a point of contact - they are sol. So they come to sites like ours to find (and pilfer at a price) our users.

I'm just kicking myself for not registering this domain [corncam.com] last fall when I thought about it (it appears to be offline at the moment with a dns error - that is strange). That simple site got mentioned in USA today, New York Times, and dozens of affiliate papers last week. (green)

Good point. "Lack of other outlets" should be on the punchlist when defining a niche market --and niche market advertisers, almost by definition, should pay a higher price.

The converse, of course, is true. The travel industry and the real estate industry has a glut of outlets, both on and off the web.
