    Hey,


    Quick Info
    * Lyrics Site
    * PR2
    * 166,848 Songs in MySQL DB
    * Registrar: NameCheap
    * Payment Via: PayPal only
    * Site online since: 26-Aug-2005
    * SE optimized


    Background Info
    I bought this site from a member at DP several months ago. When I bought the site it was the same as www.lyricsdome.com. If you look at that site you'll see that it's not very good, both in terms of SEO and the general functionality of the site.


    Improvements I've made
    Since buying the site I have made the following improvements:

    * Submitted to 265 directories using the "submitNow" script
    * Fixed the "Quick Search" feature. I've now made it possible for the user to select where to find the query text - in the band name, song title or within the lyrics.
    * Added AdSense which are also blended.
    * Increased the number of lyrics shown on each page.
    * Optimized the site for SEs - This is a major improvement I've made to the site. If you compare the urls that the original site uses to the urls now, you'll see that the newer version is far better:

    Old URL: http://www.lyricsdome.com/?id=4460&title=Endure&artist=Zao
    New URL: http://www.lyrcsdome.com/free-lyric...ards The Birth Of Separation/4460/Endure.html

    * Also if you look at the 2 pages above, you'll see that on my site there is a "Other Song Lyrics by $artist" section as well. This is helpful for the visitors.

    Earnings
    Not very much. I haven't really bothered promoting the site so earnings are low due to low traffic. However if you work on building links to the site I'm sure this can be significantly improved as the site is SE optimized, and the ads blended.

    All time earnings from AdSense = $5.63


    Auction Details
    * Starting Bid : $50
    * Min Bid Increments : $5
    * BIN : TBA
    * End Date : 3 AM (GMT) on 9th November '06 (i.e. 3 days from now)
    * I reserve the right to not sell if I'm not satisfied with the end bid.


    Transaction Details
    * Payment via PayPal
    * Payment needs to be made before domain + site is transferred. This is to prevent scammers. I have a good iTrader rating so I think this is fair.


    End Note
    Good luck and please feel free to ask any other questions. :D

    * Current BIN : $400 This will be lowered again closer to the end of the auction. :)

    * Just to clarify things, the auction is ending in 26 hours and 30 minutes from this post.
