Populis (populis.com formerly GoAdv), the Content on Demand leaders which has its European headquarters in Dublin, has confirmed it is acquiring Blogo, one of the larger international thematic blog networks in Europe and South America for €6 Million.

With over 250 bloggers covering 70 different subject areas from automotive and sport to finance and the arts, Blogo offers fresh content, a unique editorial voice and compelling stories to its audience in the UK, France, Spain, Italy and Brazil. The network produces approximately 100 million pageviews every month on its blogs including Dasmarias (dasmariasblog.com) in Brazil, Cotilleoblog (cotilleoblog.com) in Spain, Autosblog (autosblog.fr) in France, TwoWheels Blog (twowheelsblog.com) in the UK and Tvblog (tvblog.it) in Italy.

With the proven know how and successful business model developed by Populis for its 500 media properties including Excite Europe, Better Deals and Nanopublishing, the acquisition of Blogo provides the Group with a high volume of quality multilingual content in 5 key countries, bringing its content production to 35,000 items every month to 24.8 million unique monthly users (Comscore November 2010).

The acquisition of Blogo will increase the Group’s international market share, content production and revenue streams significantly, as well as opening up the South American market. Populis will retain Blogo’s office in Milan along with its international team of 16 content and social media experts, which will add to the Group’s dynamic team of 130 in Dublin, Rome and Milan.

Populis is acquiring Blogo from Dada, the Italian web publisher part owned by RCS MediaGroup, an international multimedia publishing group listed on the Italian stock exchange, and the acquisition will complete during February 2011.

Commenting on the acquisition, Luca Ascani, President and Co Founder of Populis, said, “Adding Blogo to our portfolio of media properties has reinforced our position as international leader in multilingual content on demand. With strong organic growth and an innovative acquisition strategy, we are now able to cover new categories such as the highly popular automotive sector and new territories such as Brazil, a key target for Populis in 2011. We are delighted to welcome the high profile Blogo team to Populis.”

Marco Magnocavallo, CEO and Co Founder of Blogo, said, “We are excited to enter a new phase of growth under Populis. A deep understanding of the crowdsourced content market place and unrivalled positioning in Europe as leader in content on demand makes Populis the perfect partner for Blogo to fully reach its potential internationally. We are looking forward to sharing our knowledge and experience with the team.”
