PR4 Directory of directories for sale. Great domain name, 6 months old. going cheap

Discussion in 'Sites' started by aspidov, Nov 30, 2006.

  1. #1
    The Directory for sale is http://tinyurl.com/yj6opt (this is a redirect to the actual directory)
    SEMrush
    It runs on v3.06 phpld script, has lots of pages indexed in SEs. Received approx 50 uniques/day for the month of November. It has quality backlinks pointing to it, it also receives nice hits from Google for very competitive keywords.

    The revenue for the month of November is around $200, and around $70 for October. Those are the only two months I promoted the directory. The home page itself can sell up to $100/month in link advertising but I did not want to sell any of those. I hired a submitter to submit this site to 400 directories, and that was a month ago. The only expenses are hosting which is $5/month and two advertisement links (PR5 and PR3 - $30/month total) which I'll be more than welcome to share with the winning bidder.

    The directory itself has a lot of work put into it. It has a few mods installed as well as the new, custom front page. Custom logo and design by www.realwd.com which costs $400 these days.

    Reason for sale is lack of time and management. Basically I am partially getting out of business and need to recover some of my losses.

    Starting price: $100
    Bid increments: $50
    No reserve
    BIN: $1000
    Auction Closes at 4pm (PST) tomorrow.

    The domain is at Godaddy, and will be pushed for free.
    The site is 6 months old. All the links in the directory must stay for one year from the time they were added.

    I would like to sell this website fast and quiet to the person who can handle and build a good resource. I didn't base my BIN on revenue, rather on potential and quality of the website.

    All the proof of stats and revenue can be provided upon request. Please pm for info and bid in this thread.

    Thanks,
    Serg

    forgot to add. in case if the buyer has some of their own links in the directory, I will subtract that amount from the sale price.

    $100

    I am assuming for the expiration of links, phpld will handle that automatically, correct? Is the phpld license included?

    You said 'two advertisement links (PR5 and PR3 - $30/month total) which I'll be more than welcome to share with the winning bidder'
    how would you share them? Arew they with text-link-ads.com?

    No, they are not. Those two links are the ones I bought directly from webmasters and I will tell the winning buyer, where I got them from.

    Its very unique, and the design is worth it.
    And if what you are saying it true then my investment should pay off within a month.

    $250 take it or leave it.
    :D

    The domain is 6 months old.
    I haven't tried Adsense because 99% percent of the time it does not work on directories.

    I will send you a pm with statistics so you can take a look at keywords.

    Just to clarify,

    what I meant by saying "99% of the time Adsense does not work on directories" is not that directories are banned from it, but it is rather useless and devalues purchased listings.

    On top of that, most of the visitors are webmasters, and they know what Adsense is and how it looks.

    P.S. 17 hours left until the end of auction, top bid is $300 by reh3363.

    I agree 100% that adsense will devalue the paid links..
