The thieves have been vanquished

For another post on this, see Find New Customers is back and better than ever.

Last fall, Find New Customers was shut off when a small CRM company in Florida called A p l i c o r who had purchased our popular website and blog domains of findnewcustomers dot net and fearlesscompetitor dot com refused to return them and flipped a switch. We went dark on August 3, 2010. No website, no blog and no email. We were out of business. (They used our websites for “black hat” SEO techniques – keyword stuffing.)

We purchased (A vastly better domain name anyway) and (for my blog) and started over. It is now May – just 9 months later, but the verdict is in.

They have been vanquished.

Our website is vastly more popular than theirs. The second best source of traffic to our website is organic search – our Alexa ranking dwarfs theirs.  Check out the comparison here.

Since thanks go out to our supporters, like Marketo, Eloqua, SiriusDecisions, Junta42, Avitage, MarketingProfs, Communications Strategy Group and a special thank you goes out to Jill Konrath for her faith and support.

The future is bright indeed. If we did this in just 9 months, what can we do in the next 9 months?
