Get ready for XMas! hallmarkchristmas.com - PR5 - 7 year old domain + 5 other

Discussion in 'Sites' started by kokopelli, Jul 18, 2006.

    Ho, ho ho ... Are you ready for Christmas this year? Here are some XMas sites for your pleasure.

    Highest offer (above my reserve) by Friday July 21 10PM MST takes it (selling each site separately - see below for minimum offers).

    Free push to the current registrar. One month free hosting. Full instructions will be provided. Free email support while you host with me.

    PayPal payment only (no eChecks). Posted on multiple forums. Post SOLD to claim @ BIN. I reserve the right to refuse any bids, other than BIN, and end auction at anytime. Thanks for looking!

    hallmarkchristmas.com - PR5 - 7 year old domain

    • Description: niche Amazon AWS shop with added content for SEO. Runs on paid version of AOM script (NOT included) - will downgrade to free version if you do not want to buy the script
    • Script details: IMHO the best Amazon AWS script out there with great Admin backend and loads of other cool features. Very easy to use. No database required.
    • Domain age & details:
      • 7 Year old domain (circa 1999)
      • "Hallmark Christmas" is a well-known term and part of the lexicon - also 3,750,000 results on Google for "hallmark christmas"
      • Overture score (without www.) = 482 (WordTracker = 62.0 /day)
      • Expires on: 2006-10-22
      • Registrar: eNom
    • Site age & details:
      • Present version is 3 month old site (since about 2006-04-25)
      • Original website since about Feb 29, 2000 (see Archive.org)
      • Has at least 20,000 pages (that's how many I generate a sitemap for)
      • PR5 with several internal PR4 pages
      • 2 Pages of added, relevant, content (some auto-updating via newsfeeds, some static) - see footer for links to these pages
    • Traffic details:
      • Steadily increasing traffic, despite me not having actively promoted this site: 489 uniques for July so far - this is mostly search engine traffic, I haven't actively promoted this site
      • Natural search engine traffic
      • Stats screenshots (click on thumbs for larger images)
      • More stats: http://hallmarkchristmas.com/axs/ax-admin.pl (click on "View in Graphical Format")
    • Revenue details: Incorporates Adsense (negligible) and Amazon ads, but I cannot give you an accurate income figure for Amazon as I cannot track this site separately. But according to the email notifications received from the AOM script, items totalling $708.45 have been placed in the shopping cart (but that does not necessarily translate to sales). As we get closer to Christmas, I can envisage the income increasing accordingly.
    • SEO details:
      • Search engine (short) friendly URLs with paid version of script
      • Submitted to all major search engines
      • High search engine rankings for several keywords/phrases (e.g. #1 in Google for "hallmark christmas")
      • Listed in Archive.org since (2000)
      • Hundreds of backlinks (can be increased with SEO) e.g.:
      • Well-indexed (28,344 pages according to Marketleap), e.g.:
      • Google and Yahoo sitemaps generated for 20,000 pages and submitted. Also has an HTML sitemap (see footer)
      • Proper htaccess and robots.txt files
    • Starting bid: $100 (with a reserve price)
    • BIN to be set later

    I also have these Christmas-related sites and will post more details if someone's interested:

    • christmastalk.com - forum - PR2 - was down for a long time, then I had to clean it up, upgrade the software, some anti-spam measures, etc. With some SEO and time now, could still do something before Christmas - minimum offer $75
    • christmasringtones.info - static ringtones site - PR2 (used to be PR3) - I've had this since 2004 - never promoted - minimum offer $25
    • christmastones.info - ditto - minimum offer $25
    • xmasringtones.info - ditto - minimum offer $25
    • xmastones.info - dynamic ringtones site using Mediaplazza script - PR4 - have had this since 2004 - never promoted - minimum offer $35

    Will give you $35 for xmastones.info

    Thanks

    In reply to some inquiries about possible TM issues:
    • I'm not a lawyer, but an USPTO search has revealed no trademark for "hallmark christmas"; and
    • I've never been notified of or contacted regarding a possible TM issue.
