PSPForums.com 2500 daily uniques

    This is my PR5 Sony PSP Forums that I am going to begin marketing for sale.
    SEMrush
    2500 daily uniques with 3217 members (actual members since I delete all nonactive signups)

    The site has almost 62,000 posts with 450 new posts daily.

    Last month I did 1354763 page views.

    Full Forum Statistics:
    http://www.pspforums.com/forums/statistics.php

    The site activity is GREAT. The moderators are very nice and active and I only take mods 16 years old or older. I think most are over 18 currently. The front end of the site is a licensed Cigmas CMS and very easy to manage and change. If you want to make layout changes it's all in the admincp.

    I only started the site 139 days ago...so you can see how well it has done. I have not attempted to sell any advertising. I did less than $200 in adwords when the site started for the first month.

    The forums run on phpbb...but not an ordinary version of phpbb. It is hacked and modded by myself. It has an enormous amount of installed and working hacks to help run the forums more professionally. Like report posts, cash system, rss newsfeeds, merge topics, log moderator actions, and many more. You will not have to make any adjustments to the forums software other than phpbb updates. Currently it is updated to 2.0.17 (latest version).
    I will try to find time to list all the mods if I can.

    I have a subscription membership for $5 a year...so far I have 60 paid members. I started this about 2 months ago. I get 5-10 new subscribers per week. The subscribers get some bonuses like custom rank on request and some extra forum cash points. The more you can offer them the more that will sign up. Also subscribers see the site ad free. Regular members get certain inline ads removed when logged in. Visit the site and you will see most of this.

    Subscribers:

    Moderators -You can see how active they all are.
    http://www.pspforums.com/forums/groupcp.php?g=5

    With only the google ads I have made on average $120 a month for the past 2 months...it's not a lot but I have done very little to attempt to do better. The front end is not updated very often by me and I have 2 others that get access that do an update about once a week. If you updated daily it would help dramatically. I am just too busy for this. It is the reason I am selling. Unless I can spend more time with the site it may not get to the next level. I am more of a developer than a monetizer...I love to make sites and sell them. Personally I don't like ads and waiting months to get paid.

    I am looking for mid-high $xxxx offers. Anything less I won't sell. This site has been my baby for the past 4 months. It has HIGH potential and I know that is a dangerous word to use but in this case it fits since the site already is taking off. It should be obvious that this site can make it big.

    Feel free to ask questions.

    http://www.pspforums.com

    mid-high $xxxx offers please...I may set a buy it now later.

    pspforum.com will be included (forgot all about that)

    Also I mention the front-end is a CMS called Cigmas which is licensed for this domain.

    Just hosting....I don't pay anyone else.

    The database is about 40mb now and the files are about 300mb cuz there are downloads and attachments mod on the forums (all legal). The front end is another 100 mb I think...bandwidth is listed on the stats. I would assume a hosting account might be $20-$50 if you don't already have your own server.

    I won't be able to provide any pre-july adsense since I changed adsense accounts. I explained all this in a previous thread.

    Anyways the current revenue isn't why you should be buying this domain. As for the donations you can see the group that is the subscribers...those are all paying subscribers..each and every one of them paid.

    I have no reason to lie about these measly sums. The site price is based on traffic, growth, membership, posts, and the little revenue I mentioned.

    If you think you can buy this site and not do thing to it but move it to your server your screwed. You will need to monetize it yourself in any way you see fit. I got the members there...you get the money.

    I have a current offer of $8500 I am considering. It's almost enough to make me do the deal.
