I did just announce publicly that gulli.com – the website I started in 1998 – was sold for an undisclosed amount. I expect the new owner to keep the main features and start developing new exciting extensions for it’s more than 600k registered members. Alexa says that gulli is one of the Top50 visited sites in Germany and Google Analytics counted more than 55.5 million pageviews from 9.8 million visits in January.
While I have to thank gulli for the existence of my company and an uncountable amount of experience and learnings I felt it’s a good time to say good bye after ten years of hard work on a single internet project. I will keep all my employees, hire new staff, move into bigger offices and use our experience in the internet-technology, community-management and online-marketing markets to build new exciting projects primarily targeted to the german and south african markets.
I hope to give you more updates here on my blog that was just recently moved from the old bi-lingual gul.li domain name to the english-only randolf.jorberg.com Domain.
Big deal, for sure. I figure that will make room for lots of new projects. Good luck!
Well done my friend, I wish you all the best on your new path!
