    Up for possible sale is the site & domain PCWebTalk.com

    I bought the domain and site seperate from each other and never got around to doing anything with the site once I combined the two into one. I always wanted to create and have my own PC forum where people could help each other with their PC problems, brag about their builds, etc, but never got the time to develop it further once I set it up. Unfortunately, I still don't have the time, so I'm considering selling this site as it is if the price is right. This is honestly a great opportunity for anyone to take advantage of - it's a high-paying PPC niche, it's a niche that will never die, and a field (IT - Information Technology) that is constantly booming even in a downfallen economy.

    That being said, the price for the site & domain is $1,199.95. I will entertain offers, but realize why the price is so high:
    1. The domain included with this sale that really creates this site - PCWebTalk.com - is a gem. It's a premium combination, ideally great for its use, and memorable. I paid $500 for this domain through Escrow to a private seller.
    2. As previously mentioned, I created this site from a previously-existing site after purchasing the domain. Actually once I saw the original site for sale is what triggered me to buy such a premium domain in the first place. Anyway, the site cost me $350, and is unique to this site (I let go of the previous domain and everything attached to it altogether).

    I will only accept payment via PayPal & Escrow. PayPal will only be accepted to members who have an oustanding reputation here, Escrow is the preferred method of payment. I don't want any low-ball offers. I am looking for the price I am asking, which is $1,199.95, and the buyer and I can split the fees down the middle.
    SEMrush
    This sale is only for seriously interested individuals and companies that see this opportunity for what it is, and for what it's worth. To me, this is a gem and worth a lot more. Everything about this site, the domain, and its unique design as well as uniquely-coded homepage is more valuable than gold to me. If you're looking to get back on your feet, start making money online, or something similar of the sort, you may want to think of investing the small amount that I'm asking for into this site - this site can easily get booming once further developed and promoted. It's ready to go as it is.

    As for the IPB license, I don't think I can transfer it as it's already been transferred to me, but you can request a license from IPB (which is the software that powers the forum) at a low price by asking them for a discount - that's a secret I'll freely provide to the public (anyone & everyone reading this).

    Well, let's get it on.

    Over 3700 members, yet only 5800 posts? What's up with that?

    Sorry. I can't open any of the topics and most of them seem to come out of the box from 2008.

    Looking at Alexa I also see no past records for anything. What would be a good reason for asking this much money for a ghost site?

    I gave two reasons in my original post that were the underlying determining factors for the pricing. I will not go lower, sorry.

    I would love to buy your site. I have $600 though. Maybe we can work something out. Thanks

    Be careful not to be fooled.

    Check carefully the topics that are made before making any offer.

    Especially given the fact that you're unable to read them in any case.

    When you post an offer with such an attitude that "Escrow or Paypal [only to old members of DP]" , shouldn't you make sure that your site is working properly?

    Simple Words - PcWebTalk.com Is not opening.

    Site works fine for me, but the forum is dead? And how come there is 3600 members, but only 6800 posts? Are they spam bots?

    Looks to me like you've just shoved a database from another site into this and are now trying to sell it here.

    I'd really only offer 75 USD for this. No doubt your forum has potential but for 500 it's definitely not worth it. What you should've done was sell it when it was really active. For now all I see are 3-4 users online at once. For an active forum it should be around 20-30.

    You can't tell me what it's worth. I know what it's worth. It has a user database and posts. $75 is way too low.

    I'd give you $100 for the domain. The site is worthless to much spam.

    I'd go with everyone else and say the only thing of value is the domain. I'd go as high as $80-90

    I'm not trying to be rude but put yourself in our shoes. $500 for a spam forum and we still have to get an IPB license? At least remove all the spam yourself first

    Why can't someone else clean it? And the forum is not filled with spam. It has a database of over 5000 legit users and posts.

    - noone will ever buy a spammed forum, it is seller's job to clean it. Admin's job to maintain and to prevent further spamming
    - the forum IS spammed to the bone, do check yourself
    - Who cares of a spammers DB ? not me.
    - you give no IPB licence ?
    - you gave no proof of ownership, nor proof of revenue

    - I give $70 only if ownership proof given. PM if interested.

    LOL. Funniest reply I've seen from a seller on this forum.

    Dude, you're the one selling the site! Clean it up.

    If you think someone will buy a spam filled forum for $500 only to find themselves ridding the forum of spam, you're out of your mind.
