Jupiter Research Solo Again

Jupiter Research, which was sold by Jupitermedia to Kagan Research for $10.1 million a year ago to create JupiterKagan, is now on its own once more. Kagan Research was acquired this week by financial business intelligence firm SNL Financial to create a new media and communications practice. Terms of the deal were not disclosed. Jupiter will continue offering its existing technology and online marketing research services, including its coverage of search engine marketing.
