Buying Buying Forums $$$ to $$$$$$

    I'm looking to do a few more acquisitions. I buy for my own portfolio and for other buyers that I work with, and buy forums anywhere from a few hundred dollars into the six figure range. I look primarily at forum activity and traffic, and second at revenue. But, the forum has to be a good fit for the portfolio too. Please pitch me with the forum you are considering to sell. I need to know the url first, and your ask price. If it is something that is a good fit, I will ask for more details, but please include the url and ask price when you send me a message. Thanks!

    lol, good luck with that. I really want to buy forums with some activity. They don't have to be huge, but they do have to be active or I'm not really interested.

    Do they have to be forums, as I have several profitable sites that aren't, but are still very good acquisition possibilities.

    here is the forum with some activity- forums.bollywooddisplay.com

    7k unique visitors per month all from search engines(will send you proof of awstats from my host), increasing at rapid pace(expect 10k per month from next month). I have not monetized it yet, you won't see any ads on it yet.

    selling it for just $490, forum comes along with the front site- bollywooddisplay.com

    you also get vbulletin license with the purchase, i purchased it for $150 i think.

    There are some subjects I won't touch, like illegal downloads and streaming video, gaming forums, paid to click, porn, and anything that encourages illegal activity. Beyond that I'm open, but mostly concerned to buy a forum that is an active community.
