    Site For Sale: 16,000 members, 45,000 Post Submissions, 3000 Unique Visitors/Month, 183,000 Alexa Rank

    www.linktofollow.com
    , is an established social bookmarking site with over 16,400 members (growing daily).
    SEMrush
    This site is suitable for all DP site hunters.

    Users register, share, save and organize their bookmarks. It is a digg like social bookmarking website.
    The admin has the option to send messages to all users (a nice feature that could be used to monetize and make money from the site).

    The website has superb traffic with an Alexa ranking of 183,000. Everyone marketer will agree that this rank is worth fighting for.

    Promotion has already been done, but more backlinking can only help increase its rank further.

    linktofollow.com has 16,676 members as of March 20th, 2012 and 46,073 posts submitted by registered users.

    Managing the site and features:
    The website requires almost zero maintenance. You don't necessarily need to spend time on it. However, the stories and users can be easily managed from the admin panel. The stories are exposed on the front page when they are voted by other users. The website also has a feature of displaying featured news with images.

    Reason for sale:
    Saw the marketing and monetization potential and bought it for resell purposes. I am not interested in keeping sites. I buy and sell sites instead. Contact me if you have good sites to sell (like this one).


    After the purchase:
    The domain name is registered with Godaddy.com (expires Nov.27, 2012). I will need your details to push the domain to your account. I will also move the website to the buyer's hosting account for free.

    You will of course need a hosting account. I can host it on my server for up to 3 weeks for free while you arrange your own hosting.

    Here is a screenshot of the stats from the admin control panel.


    [​IMG]


    The sheer numbers of this site speaks for itself.
    You really don't need to be a genius to figure out what you can do with with the members and traffic.


    No monetization is on the site and therefore is wide open to exploit to its max.

    Use it for Adsense, affiliate offers, CPA offers or whatever else you wish to use it for.


    The mailing list of 16k+ alone is worth several thousand dollars. One targeted email to them should bank you a few thousand dollars. The previous owner has not marketed to them and I am leaving that door wide open for the new owner of this site.


    Ask any experienced marketer on this forum what the worth of a 16K marketing list is worth. Add to that the potential for multiple monetization methods and you have yourself an automated money machine (even though I hate using cliches).

    Since you didn't put adsense on it can we all assume that the url is banned from adsense?

    No, I did put adsense on it when I bought it just to make sure it wasn't banned.

    Its working fine.

    For a site that has no proven history of earnings, i wouldnt say $500 was "quite low".

    I've bought several Pligg sites like this for < $50, and I made him a realistic offer, but he just came back and insulted me. I don't think he's serious about selling it.

    Just the mailing list alone is worth several hundred if not thousands.

    The traffic of 3000 per month is also a good amount to monetize off.

    If you invest, you should see a return quickly.
