Marchex developing Spanish-language sites

Seattle-based Marchex said today it’s partnering with Fox’s Latin American Channels division to develop a number of Web sites that it owns, including futbol.com, fotos.com, deportes.com (sports) and mujer.com (woman).

Turns out that Marchex’s ongoing domain-buying spree is not just limited to English-language sites. The company owns thousands of domain names, including most of the Zip code sites in the U.S. (like 98109.com).

Marchex said it recently acquired about 100 Spanish-language Web sites for $10 million in cash. It plans to make money by selling advertisements on those sites.
