Top 30 Website Purchase another website on Huge Price ever

What is a website worth? Apparently as much as $18,000,000 if you are the US Government. The true irony? It is for a website devoted to tracking government spending. The site, recovery.gov, was created to track spending under the $787 billion American Recovery and Reinvestment Act. According to the Obama administration, the site was developed to provide the highest level of transparency and accountability to the American people. Recovery.gov “2.0” promises to give U.S. taxpayers more information about where their money is going. Well, one thing for sure, some of this money went to finance the most expensive website in the world!
