JustHackIt – From Techcrunch to Up For Sale in Less Than 24 Hours
Yesterday Techcrunch Editor Erick Schonfeld wrote a review of a new service called JustHackIt. Schonfeld called JustHackIt, "a dating site for hackers". Basically it’s a classifieds board for hackers and developers to easily post openings and have developers submit interest in those openings.
Less than 24 hours later, the JustHackIt service is now up for sale on Sitepoint. The current auction price is $20. In the 24 hours post launch the company reports the following stats:
- 18,258 pageviews
- 8,580 unique visitors
- Main traffic sources: TechCrunch, news.ycombinator.com, Reddit and Netvibes
The description notes the reason for the quick sale, "I launched JustHackIt.com last night. I’m really enjoying managing the site but didn’t expect the huge amount of traffic and don’t quite know how to manage a community site like this. I’m doing my best with it, but thought I’d post it on Sitepoint to see if someone is looking for this type of opportunity." They claim that they will have 600,000 pageviews this month – of course that doesn’t take into account that any blogger buzz dies off within a few days max.
Anyway, if you are interested in a cheap dat(ing) site for hackers and developers, JustHackIt is the one for you. And upon purchase you can tell VCs and friends, "I was on Techcrunch". Here’s their pageviews chart – note that this is by the hour not by the day, week, month or year.
