    Site and domain for sale. This site has roughly 400 uniques a day and brought in about $4500 in commissions last year.

    I am selling this to meet a 2004 goal:

    sell sites and go fishing

    In other words focus on my offline business.

    I will consider all reasonable offers.

    Please PM me for more information.

    Thanks

    Besides Ebay, any suggestions on where to post this for sale?

    You can try posting to Geek Village
    http://www.geekvillage.com/forums/fo...8ee&forumid=61

    or Jimworld forum's "I want to Sell my Site" area.
    http://jimworld.com/apps/webmaster.f...site/start::1/

    By the way, they have some good groundrules for posting sites for sale there that you might want to incorporate in your post here. (Like how long the site has been running, monthly unique traffic stats, how much income it generates, and so on.) Care to answer any of these questions? I may be interested.

    Based on 2003 stats it has an average of 380 unique sessions a day.

    It has been up since the end of 2002.

    If nobody wants to purchase the site, I would welcome some advice on what to do with it.

    Thanks

    Still interested in some advice or a sale.

    It is on pace to push about $7000 in commissions this year.

    Question - if the site has been up more than a year, why is the pagerank 0?

    Because Google sucks!

    75% of the traffic comes from Yahoo
    15% from MSN
    and the rest is a hodge podge of directories.

    Just curious...what do you consider a 'reasonable' offer?

    Projected earnings over next 18 months is a starting point.

    So you would be looking for around 10,000$?

    Is this a datafeed site? If not, how much maintenance time would you say is required per month?

    Could you post or PM me some traffic stats? Curious why the index page rank is zero? Looks like most of the internal pages are PR4.

    Would I need to keep the Sponsors links on the front page up?

    Thanks

    No you are buying it. Its yours. Sorry for answering that one myself.

    Ask to document the stats with the JCWhitney records from CJ over the last yr. Due diligence.

    sorry for the late response.

    I can document the sales with CJ, amazon and others.

    It is not datafed, but does use Amazon's xml.

    I have not made siginificant changes for quite some time. PR on index page is not a penalty according to Google ( I ask them directly )

    Sponsor links would not be maintained, but some inbound links from other sites I own would stay up for a period of agreed time.

    If you have any other questions, please let me know.

    thanks

    John

    Yup, silly college prank on a roommate. But when the single page site was up it got traffic and I still don't really know from where.

    I hope that you do sell your sites but it is time to close this thread.
