In fewer than 8 weeks, Proxiblog has earned its niche in the busy blogosphere, approaching 2000 unique viewers eager to learn more about the top online coin auctions doing business on the Internet portal Proxibid. (Click photo to see statistics.)
When Proxiblog began posting, only 11 auctions met our standards with a mere 5 of those exceeding them–a buyer’s fee of 15% or less, clear and expandable pictures of obverse and reverse, and reasonable shipping fees with items sent within 7-10 days. Now 40 auction houses meet our standards with a dozen of those exceeding them, often crediting this site for practices that spur competition.
We have posted more than 30 articles, features, news items and columns illustrated by more than 50 photographs. Our most popular pages are the Honor Roll, rankings of various houses and their practices; On the Block, posts by auctioneers themselves; and Articles, covering news and practices associated with the Internet coin auction business.
For those new to the site, we are independent from but supportive of Proxibid, one of the largest online auction portals in the country, known for excellent customer service and proactive security measures. We also hope to reach auctioneers doing business on iCollector and AuctionZip, other online portals selling coins.
We will begin posting again on Tuesday.
Happy 4th of July to all those who have played a part in our success!
