    Hey,
    SEMrush

    This is the first site sale I've done so I hope I've provided all the necessary info. Please post if you need any more info :)

    Website Info
    URL : http://www.avoidr.com
    On : NameCheap (Free Push)
    Registered on : 06/25/2006
    Expires on : 06/25/2007
    PR : 0
    Traffic : See Below
    Revenue : See Below

    Background Info
    This is a proxy site I bought just over a week ago on the 10th from someone who wasn't monetizing the site. The thread should be on DP somewhere, just search for the url. The site is a great way to promote your other sites as well as earn revenue through AdSense (as discussed below).

    Since buying the site I submitted to around 50~75 directories and registered to quite a few proxy topsites, as well as giving it a simple but custom logo.

    Why Are You Selling the Site?
    I have a reseller package and host all my sites on that one account. This site is using up around 2Gb of bandwidth a day and a large amount of CPU, as would be expected from a proxy site. Today I received an e-mail from my host saying I should upgrade to a dedicated server, which I didn't realize was so expensive!!!! :eek:

    Anyway the e-mail (btw ukstudentfinance.com is my main domain for my reseller package):

    Traffic Details
    When I first bought this site I was a little skeptical about whether the traffic would last. However looking at the stats below it looks like it will because the large number of direct accesses. Also in case you're wondering what the search terms were they're all something like "avoidr.com" etc... I'm not exactly sure where the traffic came from initially but the previous webmaster experienced a large spike in traffic, which now seems to be stable.

    I've also signed up to a lot of proxy topsites after I bought the site so that should provide a little bit of extra traffic.

    Adding a topsites list to this domain would also be a good idea. If you promote it well then you can use the topsites list to promote your own site as well as make some extra cash selling links or adding ads.

    Revenue
    At present the only form of revenue is through AdSense. You could sell links on the site though and also adding a topsites list would be a great idea as I mentioned above.

    There are 3 content units and a link unit on the site. You should get rid of the content unit under the form though as it has a VERY low CTR...

    Link Unit Stats

    The 336 Units at the Top

    The 468 Banner at the bottom

    Auction Info
    Starting bid : $10
    Min Increments : $2
    Auction End : 25th August 06 at 5 a.m. GMT
    BIN : $900 (may be lowered at a later stage)
    Payment Via : PayPal

    I reserve the right not to sell if I'm not satisfied with the final bid

    Annnyway I think that's about it... Please post if you have any other questions!


    Thanks,

    Hodge
