    You have to be very careful. It’s not to hard to create a site, puff up the PR, then sell it to someone who will watch Google penalize it back to nothing during the first update. If you want a good website the best way to do it is make it yourself.

    Thanks Harsh for this superb…

    I’m actually trying now to sell my blog for some personal reasons… I found your article very useful. I still will sell my blog though… It’s a PR 2 blog and I’m looking at selling it at a decent price.

    Thanks

    An interesting article but I won’t suggest people to do this for making money online because the pleasure of writing, sharing and receiving comments would be completely lost. I feel only money minded people would do this.

    Great post Harsh. Website Flipping is the new thing that I learned today. I agree with Mike. Cannot sell my site as it has the name attached. I really want to know who Anonymous is. He/she has lot of knowledge :)

    This is interesting. I’d definitely say that this is a promising business.
    I’ve seen blogs going for sale for 10,000 USD at DP.

    But you gotta do some maths beforehand. If your niche websites are returning you (via ads) more than flipping in the long run, then you have to think twice.

    And not to forget, it requires lot of patience, one should better start early.

    Kind of dicey situation!

      It is indeed, but once you get use to it, it turns out to be a great way to make good money all at once. The only thing which you need to do is understand the whole concept of Website flipping, and one needs to be smart enough to sale it at higher price. :)

    Hi Harsh,

    Well written article. I have known about website flipping for quite some time now, but never knew it can involve as much money as George has pointed out.

    What makes me curious though is how a buyer would cash on the initial sucess of these websites.

    BTW some sites offer buying twitter accounts as well these day… Its getting insane out there!

    • Harsh Agrawal

      Yah i recently came across few websites which are actually paying you for selling Twitter account and it actually works.
      And website Flipping is success when you have targeted niche, PR, Traffic + Income…
      If you have all these 4 qualities, you can expect good amount of money for your blog.

    Interesting Harsh! Website Flipping seems a good opportunity to cash in! You did mention Big Bucks right!

    As you mentioned, creating 5-6 websites with the intention of selling them off later could really make you a lot of money!

    Will be looking forward to your future posts on Flipping!

    Cheers

    Website flipping is a good business, but it’s not sufficient. It requires time and experience to create a profitable blog or website.

    @Harsh – Good topic you’ve covered here. I’d like to put in a few points. Let me tell you all that I all this info comes from my personal interaction with Jusitn Brooke – one of the professional website flipper – http://sitefling.com/

    I and Justin are good friends and he helped lent the learning ropes to quickly learn website flipping and it definitely is an extremely profitable business.

    Here’s what we do in a nutshell :
    1> “Niche” is the mantra – Don’t go for lame, general niche. You can sell those, but the profits you make is far less when compared to lazer targeted niche.

    2> Try and register a domain with possible keyword/s in it. Very helpful in SEO as you all might already know.

    3> Write articles at regular intervals. Following a schedule is very important. If you plan to write 5 articles in a week, schedule all the 5 at almost right interval. This will help you ‘train’ the SE bots, mainly Google !

    4> Don’t monetize your site from day 1. There might be a few who are against this, but lemme tell u the odds. Lets say, if you find a blog / site with good info, but lot of ads, being a webmaster you’ll think twice before linking. If the site is clean, professional looking, no obtrusive ads, then the chances of you linking is very high.

    5> Don’t plan short term. Most people plan to build a site and sell it for profits within 1st or 2nd month. Plan long term instead. If I find a niche which can be sold for a good value here’s the procedure I follow:

    > write 8 articles / week. 7 go my blog and one goes on article directories / as guest post on related blogs. – articles will average 250 words – and I get it written professionally, so it costs around $3 – $4 depending on the niche. I’ll make sure I come close to around 100 articles.

    > Daily link building using some of the methods mentioned above. monthly budget of $50

    > Absolutely no ads and extremely professional looking website for the first three months.

    With this work done, by the end of 3rd month, depending on the niche the site will be getting around 500+ unique lazer sharp, targeted visitors.

    I start monetizing the site from month 4 – 6. Split test, try out affiliates, CPA, CPL, adsense, other ad networks. Fine tuning the profitability, you should be sitting with a minimum of $300+ / month if everything done with proper research.

    Now selling skills: Mostly people sell a website for 10 -12 months profit. But you can convince your buyer to go for 24 – 30 months revenue, because, you’ve done all the basic research and laid the foundation right. You site will need minimum maintenance, almost automated.

    The best I’ve sold for using this method is a site worth $8K +. But I know Justin’s sold a few sites worth $15K + or more.

      Thanks for the great input buddy.
      Though I have question here, What do you think the best profitable niche for website flipping?
      Why Website Flippers hate domain with .info?

      Meanwhile the set up which you told me it means we have to go with the full set up of a blog in all terms that include website promotion and link building in that duration.

      Well it’s not a bad deal and can be achievable for me or anyone if he/she wants to take care of 5-7 blogs in a row. The only thing is one should maintain a tight schedule and get the basic set up done in the best way to get maximum out of it.

      Looking for more input on it.
      Thanks and regards

        You should select a niche where you can grow. Check affiliate sites for ideas. The niche which has a lot of products is more easy to sell. It’s simple math.

        And regarding building the site as if it’s your own is very important according to me. Reason being, people want things easy. They love to be spoon fed. So if you have something that’s all set and ready, they will be willing to pay you more than paying on something where they’ll still have to do some work.

        More flexibility you give to the seller, more money you tend to make.

        Just like you buy a car with automated windows and manual window. The difference will be around 20K, but do u really think it costs 20K for making the windows auto ?

        Frankly, if any one does 9 – 5 (8 hrs) with their blogs, dedicated, being true their self, trust me you are sitting on a few $xxxx – $xxxxx in 6 months.

    Hi Harsh,

    I heard about website flipping a few months ago and had a look at it. I must say that it seemed that some bloggers were charging huge amounts for this. Some were actually correct in their stats and revenue while others were just lying through their teeth.

    I guess you could always check up on them, but that depends on the buyer or buyers. If you really want the domain and what has been done then it could be worth it. Some don’t put much effort in, but get a lot out.

    I know the marketplace at sitepoint.com, there are many websites listed there and some cost way to much. I saw a couple going for over $90,000 the other day. That’s just insane if you ask me.

      Hey George
      Website flipping is a big business…
      All you need to do is select a niche and keep writing articles for a while.. Lets say one month and Do basic Onsite SEO and link building.
      Link building can easily be done by paying anyone for commenting and paid links.
      You can expect a PR on the next update.
      Now your baby site is all ready to make big bucks for you.
      Though there are many catch here which I will Discus in the series of upcoming posts.

    We should not sell our blog on any public forum like DP, it will create a bad impression on our readers.. what do you say Harsh ?

      It does create a bad impression but people create such websites for the Flipping purpose and many people are making lots of big money with this.

    Since blog is tied personally, I don’t think I can ever sell mine :'( Should have made a new domain for it from the start lol.

    • Harsh Agrawal

      Exactly Michael …
      Website Flippers usually work on 5-6 new blog on separate niche at the same time and sell them once they get traffic and PR.
      I will never recommend you to sell your blog or I will never sell mine at any cost.
