    Hello All,

    I plan to buy a forum site for Audi enthusiast. Monthly stats and revenue break down are as follows:

    50-60,000 users pm
    600,000-800,000 page views pm
    $800 - $1,600 revenue per month (Adsense)

    Costs are 1 dedicated server $150 month.

    I am skeptical about this forum's revenue from Adsense . What do you think guys?. What is the market price for an auto forum site with this kind of traffic?

    Thx,
    Andy

    I can't comment on whether the site is a good buy or not, but the Adsense revenue claimed does not sound unreasonable in relation to the traffic numbers claimed.

    Trust, the claimed $800 - $1,600 revenue is from Adsense only . Are you sure?

    I have no idea. I don't think anybody here can give you a good guess. You and the current forum owner would have a better idea.

    I have read from several webmasters that Adsense revenue for Forum sites is little compared with same traffic content sites...

    Cowcool - there is no way to know what to expect, so as I said earlier, and what TN said; the figures you quoted sound reasonable in relation to one another.

    Some proof of income would be useful.

    Perhaps if they have a banner control system they could swap AdSense code for a day to yours?
