    Cool. Not bad for a site that you were planning on just taking down, eh? I am happy for you. It is beyond my budget now, but I feel that before the auction is over, you might get a still higher bid. Congrats. Ajeet

    If (s)he pays you the 550, I guess that would be good proof of seriousness :)

    I am out of the running but if the person who contacted you privately, ends up not being serious (i took that to mean you were unsure if they will pay), please open the bidding back up as I would rebid over $175

    Cheers and Good Luck

    and, let us know who it was (assuming non-payment, i.e.). When transacting monies on largely anonymous forums, feedback from others is the biggest input. Actually, for your sake, I hope that the amount goes beyond 550 :)

    Oh, before I forgot ..

    The site currently ranks at 5 th or 7th ( depends on datacenter) for the term helpful alternative medicine at yahoo from 5 million results.

    If someone could get it to rank nicely for the term "alternative medicine" - you could be very rich - even from adsense alone .. since 20 cent perclick from oohoi is very normal. It is NOT normal for me to get less than 5 cent perclick .

    - oh! i better finish my dinner

    Sorry iskander, did not have time to browse the whole thread to find the answer, when is the auction ending?

    Also, where do you get the content for the site? Do you write it yourself?

    But ppl are turned off because I cannot use paypal ( it's useless in my country) . I need direct bank in.

    3 hrs! Dang. I won't be able to get my biz partner's approval within 3hrs :(

    Oh well, let us know if it goes back on the market (hope you do sell it to the highest bidder now and make some decent $$)

    Best,
    James

    Hmm.. I will close this in about 1 and a half hour.

    Latest News: My highest bidder (550) 2nd(500) and 3rd highest(less than 200) is not logged - in

    What would i do? : Since i did not make any agreement with anybody , this auction will still close at specified hour. If 3 highest bidder didn't contact me this weekend, auction will reopen

    Can you explain "reverse bid" . Sorry English is my 2nd language.

    I just believe that if one is serious about bidding, he'll wait until the end. If he's not here .. then it means he's not interested anymore.

    Will i go to the next highest bidder? Maybe .. still undecided since both 2 highest is not present. Chances are auction will be opened again. I will wait for the 2 highest to ctc me in 24 hr. Thats the timeframe

    The winning bid was $175 then someone bid $550. So we all stopped bidding.

    Now you are saying people continued to bid from that $175 despite it not being the highest bid, so they are next in line for the site?

    yes, someone from my country sent a pm. It would be an easier transaction since i don't want to use paypal. higher than 175 but lower than 500.
    But, i say nothing or promise nothing to anyone. I hope the highest bidder is here but they are nowhere to be seen ....

    Now I'm nervous hehe

    So does that mean we can bid, say $180 to be in third place

    Also - You said someone had preference because they were from your own country. Wasn't one of the terms that payment would be a bank transfer, and not Paypal?

    I'm just trying to clarify as I would really like this site but am not prepared to pay over $550. But if you are saying it may go to the $200 bid then I am interested.

    Yfs1,
    Thanks for the interest my friend,
    I will first wait for the 2 highest bidders ( because the difference to the 3rd is very high).

    Preference would still be given on the highest bidder. If he's from my country it's a plus since we'd have less hassle. But let me tell this to everybody, highest bid is priority -- no matter where you live in the world.

    At the moment .. i think the chances that the bid will reopen is VERY HIGH because it's 1 hr and 8 min to go.

    Again, i'd emphasis that i will wait for the top bidders first. If top 2 ain't there in 24 hrs I will open a new thread and we'll see who will bid and stay to his word.

    p/s do not bid if it is less than 500. If I could not find these 2 highest bidder in 24 hr, I will reopen a new auction thread. Bid there!
