    I bought this website off flippa for $1500 a while back when it ended unsold: https://flippa.com/69081-funny-video-website-650-revenue-per-month

    I never found time to manage it correctly and eventually let the traffic die down. The backend CMS is amazing. Here are screenshots of the backend:

    Revenue: It was making a steady $400-$600/month from Heavy.com PPC Advertising and other advertising networks. I made $500ish for 3 months before revenue went downhill.
    SEMrush
    Traffic: This website has a traffic exchange program in place. You rotate visitors to other viral video websites and you get new visitors in return. You can see a screenshot of the system here: http://funnyskunk.com/Screenshot_3.png

    I'm letting this go for cheap because I'm moving on from internet marketing and online businesses.

    Right now it's not making anything because I removed ads a while ago to play with cpa offers (bad idea for viral video site). Since then I have not added the adspaces back on, which was really stupid of me.

    Yes, it is adsense safe. I had adsense on here before I played with cpa offers (let me repeat, bad idea haha). It used to make revenue from mostly banner style ads from adsense and many other ad networks.

    No special hosting needed, I have it on a cheap hostgator shared hosting plan right now with many other websites.

    For dinner last night I had pan seared tilapia garnished with lemon juice and parsley. Also had a side of Mediterranean salad and toast. I highly recommend this brain food combo.

    Content comes from taking videos off youtube or other viral video websites. I can provide step by step instructions for the buyer.

    For traffic stats refer to the old flippa listing here: https://flippa.com/69081-funny-video-website-650-revenue-per-month

    Right now it is still receiving a steady flow of traffic, but not compared to how it was before. If you are willing to do SEO on it, traffic will increase quickly due to the traffic exchange system in place. Lets say you get 100 visitors today and 60 of those visitors get directed to another viral video website in the network, then you get another 60 visitors back from the other websites in exchange. This will essentially give you 160 visitors throughout the day and increase your ad revenue easily. You can adjust redirect settings easily and decide how many people flow to another website in exchange for traffic back.

    Im interested but can you change the way the user gets that pop up to the other viral site. if you can make it so that the other viral site open up in a tab with out leaving the original site. Or perhaps let the site your trading traffic with show as a pop under.
