    Few days back I wrote a post on 5 websites to buy sell blogs, and recently I    bought one blog, I will make a proper announcement of it soon. But for now I will note down which all important thing you should ask before buying a blog.

    This is typically for wordpress blogs, so don’t misunderstood with a normal website.

    These are the things which you should consider with the blog you are getting. All these informations (if available) are useful.

    • Transfer Google Analytic
    • Transfer Feeds
    • Google Webmaster tool
    • Website official twitter account (if any)
    • Google Apps info
    • Social media gadget info (if any )
    • WordPress Installation info (Database, mysql,users)
    • Web hosting + FTP info
    • Twitter account

    Try to dig down all the related info related to website, like any affiliate partner, any milestone it has covered.

    Most important thing, also check if site is anyhow penalized by Google or any other website. Search Google with website name, and read out all the gossips going for that particular website.

    Make a mutual agreement about the blog posts which is already in the blog. Either you want to transfer all the post credit to yourself or keep it as it is.

    In my opinion, keep the blog credential as it is and write a new blog post announcing the transfer of Ownership.

    Do let us know if something which I missed and I should have asked for?

    Very true. Buyers should always see the quality of domain and the current status. Also check the history of domain as well. Quality of links and ofcourse Webmaster tools details. Nice checklist Harsh, waiting for the official announcement about your newly purchased blog. wish you all the best.

    Also the blog content is also important, and also the age of the siye.dYou should o your research probably through Whois services to figure out the age of the site you are planning to buy.

    This is a very helpful post, many could use the info when they decide to buy a blog. It’s not easy trying to take over someone else’s blog.

    I agree with your stand point on leaving old posts with original credentials.
