Putting its buckets of venture capital to use, Seattle’s SEOmoz bought another small Portland company to round out its portfolio of online marketing tools.
SEOmoz is announcing today that it paid $3 million in cash and stock for GetListed.org, a two-person Portland company that’s helped more than 2 million small businesses build their online presence since it started in 2009.
GetListed founders David Mihm and Chris Tanger will stay with SEOmoz but work remotely from Portland and Chicago. Mihm is an employee and Tanger is contracting with SEOmoz.
“GetListed puts power in the hands of local businesses – they make data essential to inbound marketing channels easily accessible,” SEOmoz Chief Executive Rand Fishkin said in a release. “We’re absolutely thrilled to fight the menace of data obfuscation at their side.”
