GeoSign moves to shed arbitrage image – splits company in two [updated]

by Ahmed Farooq in Categories: Editorial, News

The Canadian company GeoSign, owner of premium domains such as and, went through a strenuous period lately. After its massive $160,000,000 funding, the company got a black eye due to its search engine arbitrage, and after Google stomped on that, went through some layoffs.

Anyway – it seems that GeoSign now has two subsidiaries been split into two companies that act as its public face (my blog post @TechSoapbox has more) – eMedia, which will deal with their marquee products (,, TrueLocal, etc), and Moxy Media, which apparently continues to deal with their content business.

[Updated] Both are actually subsidiaries of the parent GeoSign company – just that GeoSign will no longer be the public face. As it turns out, both companies are apparently two entirely separate companies.
