    Hi lads,

    www. CheatCrave .com

    I'm going to try and sell this site which I bought last year and did the best of SEO on it that im capable of. I was hoping to sell it once it became a PR5, however, the google update is taking too long and I need the money.

    I'll provide the most detailed information I can but if I miss something just ask Ill be happy to provide with the details.

    Domain registered with: Godaddy, Expires: 5/26/2006

    First of all, is the site earning any revenue you say?
    I've had adsense with it and its getting a okay clickthrough rate I suppose but the keywords arent the greatest. Its making from 50 cents to $1 dollar with adsense. Im sure that could be improved with some Adsense master techniques!

    Here is the proof:
    [​IMG]


    The sites revenue will be up more once it gets its PR5 and starts earning from link sales. I average $150/mo on PR5 sites from link sales only. So that tells a lot!

    Why do you claim it will be PR5!?
    When i bought the site it had a PR3 from the previous owner. None of those links were removed so the least it could have done is stay PR3. The previous owner knew nothing about SEO. What i did was i submitted the site to about 200-300 directories by myself, by hand. I did some link exchanges. I have a link on my own site: www.vgcity.com to this which is a long time PR5 about to be PR6. (different IP) and i pointed coop weight to the site! All this should get the site a PR5 at least from my experience.

    Proof of coop weight pointed to site?
    [​IMG]

    How much coop do i get with this site?
    3200 is what the site has been giving and it doesnt go lower than that. Im sure it could go higher though with some optimizing.

    3200 coop could be rented out for at least $22 a month so that adds to the value of the site.

    How is the traffic?
    Ive worked hard to increase the traffic on the site since I bought it and it has gone up from 200 uniques to up to 600 uniques daily at times! Right now it averages mid 400s I believe, here is a screenshot.

    Before:
    [​IMG]
    SEMrush
    After (Now):
    [​IMG]

    How did you increase the traffic?
    I optimized for the term "Cheats for PS2" and with only 3200 weight pointed to it I have a page 4 or so ranking in google and a page 1 ranking on MSN. This term gets a LOT of searches on MSN as well you can use the keyword tool to look that up. If you could get #1 on MSN and page one on google (with more weight) you could get an insane amount of visitors.

    What do you mean more weight?
    Well I believe this sites potential relies in it being almost a year old, because its not sandboxed anymore. This means if you can put more SEO efforts on it a page one ranking should not be a problem. I lack the funds and weight to do this and my main site is a bigger priority right now.

    Min Bid: $400
    BIN: $650

    Please do not bash my price, I believe this is quite cheap seeing the future is bright for this site. If you don't like it its simple, don't bid. Anything less than my asking price I rather keep the site and enjoy the product of my work once google decides to update!

    I dont do any updating thats why im selling this. All i did was buy it off someone. Work on SEO, got it more traffic (doubled if not more, see screen), got it better ranking, submitted to directories, optimized pages, optimized ad placement :)

    You could switch to an automated cheats script i suppose if you want to. I cant be bothered got too much going on. Im not sure how long ive had adsense on this site for let me check..

    here it is, please remember im selling this for potential income once google decides to update and not for current income.

    Also i want $400 no less as stated in a previous post. Will consider trade in domains or whatever if you really cant make in $400....

    due to the age and stuff I believe this site is very well worth my asking price and could be worth more if i could wait for the PR update.

    wow,
    $400... only a few hundred visitors a day?
    So what would a PR5 with 4.3k uniques a day making about $10/day in adsense and about 15k in coop weight go for?

    A lot, depends on the age of the site too id probably ask $3000-$5000 (depends how long your adsense earnings have been going on for)

    I'd say that sounds about right, probably more if it's a particularly profitable niche and has room for optimization (ads & SEO).

    Traffic is worth money my friend.
