Selling 10+yrs Old Blog with $3K+/year Adsense Income - $15K BIN

Discussion in 'Sites' started by mcmuney, Dec 11, 2013.

    PLEASE NOTE THIS THREAD WAS ORIGINALLY CREATED BACK IN 2013. DP DID NOT ALLOW ME TO CREATE A NEW POST. PLEASE DISREGARD ANY OLD INFORMATION. SITE STATS HAVE CHANGED DRASTICALLY SINCE 2013.

    OVERVIEW

    Selling my anonymous online blog/forum (not wordpress) for $10K (USD or open to certain crypto currency). It allows visitors to post anonymously about a person, company or school. It's mainly used by people who are frustrated and had a bad experience. I had big plans for this site, but never took it to the next level. You can view posts here: http://sniitch.com/listsniitches/

    TRAFFIC/MARKETING
    I've done some SEO work on it years ago and it has been paying off slowly. I've had the site for a long time and growth is 100% organic. The Analytics traffic shows nearly 75% as referral, but it's all Google. I've provided some screenshots to reflect that on newer posts below.

    INCOME
    Here's the recent monthly breakdown for the last 6 months:
    SEMrush
    9/17 $124
    10/17 $156
    11/17 $187
    12/17 $205
    1/18 $178 (would have been $200+, but site was down 5 days because Godaddy was upgrading hosting platform; lost $40+ in revenue as a result; you can see the traffic dip for about 5 days in Jan on Analytics)
    2/18 $238
    3/18 $62 (as of now, which is 6.5 days so far into the month)

    At the current pace, I'm seeing growth every month and should exceed $300++ very shortly.

    WHAT YOU GET
    SNiiTCH.com domain (push on namesilo) and all files and database, including the profanity script (it replaces profanity words; for example, badword will become badw***). You can update the list of bad words as needed and also tweak it slightly to turn it into a cron job. I currently run the script manually once a week. There's also an admin page that allows you to delete posts and/or comments.

    MAINTENANCE
    Outside of running the profanity script.. none! And if you turn it into a cron job, there's no maintenance work at all, unless you want to promote it to increase your revenue.

    PRICE
    I'm looking for $10K, take it or leave it deal, non-negotiable, to be paid via Paypal in USD or CRYPTO (BTC, ETH, LTC, XRP, etc).

    WHY AM I SELLING
    Short answer, money.

    Feel free to ask any questions outside of price. If you disagree with the price, just move on, no need to share your opinion with me here (you can go to sniitch.com and share your frustrations lol). Thanks!

    Let me know what additional information you'd like to see and I'll post or send via PM.

    Here are the generic Q&A:

    Why are you selling this site?
    Money to supplement other hobbies.

    How is it monetized?
    100% Adsense. I've recently added an option where people can pay for a live link; however, it hasn't produced much inquiry at this stage. But it has potential for advertisers.

    Does this site come with any social media accounts?
    No, may have been setup a long time ago, but haven't been used in years.

    How much time does this site take to run?
    Less than 10 minute per month. I run the profanity script manually a few times a month, which takes less than 1 minute each time. It would require zero time if you can setup an automated cron job. I'm maxed out on my cron jobs; therefore, I run it manually.

    What challenges are there with running this site?
    None.

    Is there a way to link your site with the claimed revenue? The screenshot did not do that.
    Thanks

    @Mr. Ultra
    See traffic screenshot. PDF file size was too large to upload here. As you can see, 100% organic. Never advertised.

    @Ipaddict
    See attachment with domain on the adsense page and screenshot of profanity script at work, after I ran it today. It's currently run manually. I'm human and do forget sometimes. It works! But it's possible that I may not have captured all possible words. The list is a work in progress, but I captured the basics.

    @
    Yes, I was busy during the holiday and I had it set to expire after 14 days. But I've renewed it now.

    Thanks.

    $1K is the BIN, not revenue. You can see the trending increase on views, clicks and CTR. The price isn't for everyone. Thanks.

    Traffic has been on the rise from prior months and steady and bulk of the traffic is coming from Google. If the site was hit, it was hit in a positive way. It was never adversely impacted. Currently 13K pages are listed on Google. As posts grow, so will traffic and on its own even if you choose to do nothing, like I have.

    Attached is revenue for January 2014 and it's averaging $2/day. If this trend continues, January will hit a high of $60+.

    Google analytics has been linked. Just to clarify, all the referral traffic is purely Google. See attachments, which is from 3/1/17 - 2/4/18.

    Here are some answers to questions you've asked:

    What's February income so far?
    2/1/18 - 2/11/18 income so far is $99 (for the 11 days income continues to average $9/day) sniitch_adsense_feb11.JPG

    What is the BIN based on?
    My BIN is based on ($9*365)*3. I'm looking for 3x annual income. At the current raTe, annual income will be $3,285.

    Why is there a dip in traffic in January?
    Godaddy upgraded my hosting platform and the site was down for 5 days.

    What's crypto?
    Crypto is digital currency such is Bitcoin.

    Let me know if you have more questions. Thanks.

    -The sale ended, but it's still for sale. I can't relist it until March 7th.
    -February income continues to average $9/day.
    -Some of you asked why most of the traffic is showing as referral. I've posted a few images on the very first post that shows all the referrals are from Google. This is very common for Google to show some of their traffic under referral.
    -Let me know if you have any questions.
    -Still prefer CRYPTO, but can work with USD.
    Thanks.

    This is one mental site.

    You have 10k as your price then said BIN is 1K?

    Not sure what you mean by the site being "mental". The BIN WAS $1K when I tried to sell the site back in 2013 (look at the post date) when it had very little income. It's now 2018 and it has been well established and revenue grows every month. It's currently averaging $10/day for March 2018. March will be a new record high.

    $1000 upfront and $1000 for 4 months if it keeps up to the revenue shown.

    Sorry, but I don't know how much this is really making and how it will work out, its not a popular topic.

    The stats are linked directly to Google Analytics and Adsense and you don't know how much the site is earning, lol. Thanks for the offer and good luck to you. I'm sure you'll find a better site that suits what you're looking for.
