Where to Find The Best Sites to Buy?

Posted in Buying Sites, How to Sell on August 21st, 2014 by Michael – Be the first to comment

27I get asked this question a lot, as everyone wants to know where to pick up the best deals.

Most of my best acquisitions actually came from contacts in the industry. Webmasters who had quality websites and wanted to sell them knew that I as buying websites and turned to me for a quick hustle free transaction. I get a good deal and they get to bypass the exhilarating, and rather frustrating process of selling a website.

The next best place for me was through webmaster forums, like DigitalPoint and dozens of others. As there are many buyers and sellers on those forums it’s frequently the easiest way to sell or buy a website, especially for smaller websites.

And, finally, flippa. As it’s a fairly big marketplace I frequently find good deals and quality websites to buy there. Sometimes you have to sort through the rubble to find the real gems.

How to Set UpTime Monitoring for Your Website in 2 min

Posted in Hosting on June 24th, 2014 by Michael – 3 Comments

Website-MonitoringManaging over 100 sites can be quite complicated, so I tend to only check up on the bigger ones. As most of my sites don’t require much maintenance some go for months or even years without updates. This used to create problems in the past when I’d have some errors on sites or if they went offline and stayed like that for days and even months until noticed and fixed, which naturally caused significant financial losses.

So I finally got around to it, did some research read more »

$989 Adsense Monthly Revenue Website

Posted in Adsense, Flippa, For sale on June 17th, 2014 by Michael – 5 Comments

flippa4
I’m currently running a flippa auction for these two websites in one listing  galaxynote4me.com and galaxy4note.com. They make about $1k per month combined recently, however require quite a bit of maintenance and promotion to sustain and increase the traffic as it’s a very competitive and time sensitive niche. The auction ends in less than 2 days at the time of posting this.

This is basically an excellent opportunity if you know a little about seo, want to learn more, and have some spare time to devote to it, or extra funds to hire someone to manage them (not very expensive actually). These are not the kind of sites to buy if you’re looking for totally passive income, however they can grow quite a bit if used and promoted well.

Currently the bidding is only at $819. So go over to the auction to check it out and place a bid!

Trolls taking over Flippa

Posted in Flippa on June 12th, 2014 by Michael – 5 Comments

One of the worst parts of selling websites on flippa is constantly having to deal with trolls. There is a large and growing number of flippa members who never buy any websites, but like to spread false rumors and attack sellers for outragous accusations and claims. I encounter this in almost every auction I run, unfortunately.

Here are some recent examples from my latest auction, before Flippa support removes them – unfortunately it’s very slow, can take a day or two for flippa support to reply to a ticket.

Latest Google Updates or on Pandas and Penguins

Posted in SEO on June 4th, 2014 by Michael – 1 Comment

pandaThe very latest series of major Google algo update Panda 4.0 rolled out a few weeks ago and they are following the same strict line as before on devaluing and penalizing low quality links and popular methods of link building and serp manipulations.

Specifically as guest posts became the most popular and an inexpensive method in increasing link popularity and improving search positions for a site, Google is now catching up and dealing with it. Earlier this year a major guest posting network MyGuestPost got penalized and even though guest post sellers are trying to spin it in a different light – the reality is that read more »
