Web Site For Sale - Serious Offers Only

Discussion in 'Sites' started by carlnewlen, Jan 15, 2007.

    We are looking for serious offers for http://4mysql.com.
    SEMrush
    The site has earned over $1,800 so far this month.

    January Sales Report: http://4mysql.com/sales.htm

    The site also earns $2 to $4 a day with adsense.

    There are 2,500 incoming links posted at Yahoo and 35 at Google. These numbers will increase - we have been trading gift certificates for links on good sites.

    The site pretty much runs itself - but it would be good to know something about PHP and MySQL to answer customer questions.

    There are over 800 members.

    New vs Returning Visitors are 50-50 according to Google Analytics.

    As far as marketing, we post specials on two forums and post a tech story to Digg.com once or twice a week. We also email $10+ Gift Certificates to existing customers about once a month. That is all we do to market the site.

    This is a serious web site, making great money. And it is just now starting to get Search Engine traffic.

    We do not need to sell the web site, so we only want serious offers.

    We own all the content. We are a datamining company. So there are no trademark or copyright issues.

    Is mysql trademarked? Can you legally have mysql in a domain name without fear of it being taken from you?

    There are many sites with MySQL in the url - mysqlfreaks.com, mysqlstudio.com, planetmysql.org, php-mysql-tutorial.com, mysqlperformanceblog.com, mysqlcamp.org, hashmysql.org, plus many others.

    Most of these have been operating for many years.

    As for using logos - it is no different than a hosting company using MySQL, PHP, Apache, Microsoft, AMD, etc logos on their web sites. See Rackspace: http://www.rackspace.com/index.php

    The point to this thread is to sell a web site - and if you are not interested then don't post. If you are concerned with Trademark issues consult your attorney.

    4 Months - In it's current format: 2 months

    We converted the site into Zen Cart at the beginning of December. We were getting a lot of member sign ups and sales - so this was the best option we found to help us track sales, traffic and inventory.

    We also added a language translation script we received from one of our members, and we recently have had pages indexed.

    I just updated the sales report: http://4mysql.com/sales.htm

    We mined the content ourselves - we are a datamining company.

    We spend about 1-hour a day on answering questions sent directly from the web site and from forums where we post specials.

    We spend another 2-3 hours a week writing something technical that we submit to digg.com and setting up a special offer or two to post on the forums.

    The site is pretty much automated - the downloads are immediate - and the custom orders (which we rarely have gotten) would take less than 1-hour to develop.

    The data can be used in any database platform - but MySQL is the focus, along with supporting PHP scripts.

    We also have White Page content that we have not added to the web site - due to the size of the data. It is included with the sale. We intended to compile the White Page (residential) content as it was ordered.

    We have also been keeping the sales page up to date so you can see how the site performs. We guarantee that this information is accurate, and can easily be verified. http://4mysql.com/sales.htm

    The highest current bid is $4,900. We will be taking bids through Monday.

    We have placed our current sales report online - and we guarantee it's accuracy. The income to date for January 2007 is $3,420.61.

    http://4mysql.com/sales.htm

    There is a little bit of money from AdSense - $2-$3 a day.
