You can ‘Buy It Now’ for $50,000, but the auction will run for another 12 days at a minimum bid of $15,000. I’m fairly surprised that the people behind the service didn’t think they could fetch more for the property, if only for the nice domain name that comes with it.
When you enter a song title in Song.ly, the service searches for corresponding tracks, shortens links for Twitter and packages songs in a handy compact Flash player. Song.ly also boasts extensions for Firefox and Internet Explorer and features an open API.
The whole package is for sale, including the associated Twitter account @song_ly.
According to the listing, the site has a PageRank 5 and gets about 175,000 pageviews per month (excluding API requests). The developers of Song.ly say they’ve never considered monetizing the site and lack the time to keep running the service, even though they claim it would only take a buyer about an hour and $80 per month to maintain it.
Going once, going twice …
