    It has 26m monthly pageviews, thus $250k is pretty cheap yes.

    26m per month?

    Yeah, 250k is damn cheap... if the owner was smart, he'd get that back within the first MONTH.

    Cheap or not is relative to the buyer and what he/she plans to do with it.

    I followed the auction from the beginning and that was the actual sale price: 250k. (too many commas in the OT)

    But the only thing is that the site wasn't monetized at all, but it had a boatload of traffic.

    It'll be interesting to see what the new owners do with it.

    You better check your eyes and learn to count how many zeroes are there.

    He didn't add a zero. He just placed the comma incorrectly. :D

    Not necessarily.. In some countries like India, we use tens, hundreds, thousands, lakhs (100 thousands), crores (100 lakhs).. So a comma after 2 digits is correct here..
