  1. One of the more expensive names sold (maybe even half that total) was this one and judging by all the misdirected traffic I am getting to the ad it is used on, I’d say it was cheap for such a huge market: http://fragerfactor.blogspot.com/2014/04/marchex-double-whammy-com-because.html

  2. Medicare.com 4.5 million sold to ehealth. see transcripts on call with ehealth. Could be a higher figure for traffic but it is a bit vague on if traffic was sold separate.
