I apologize in advance for being too noobs. I just saw something that really puzzled me. There's a site currently on sale on empire flipp*rs for eight thousand dollars ($8000+) The site is making money from being an amazon affiliate, supposedly around $300/month. After paying for the deposit, I was given the URL and what I saw was ... really ... I mean, wtf... - The site has 10 pages indexed on google - It has a fairly low of backlinks - It ranks on first page below the fold for a keyword with 3000 exact US monthly search (I'm sure it ranks for other keywords, doesn't matter) I mean, I could make this type of site in 1 week for less than $500 ... which include both the content and backlinks. The longest time is to wait for the article writer to finish the articles, the most difficult task is to find what keywords to target. The site itself I could get it done in an hour or two. After that, it's just waiting game ... If say, I have $50,000 right now ... and I spend the next 3 months building 100 (one hundred) of this type of site ... By the end of this year, I could make at least $10,000/month? By the end of next year, if I decide to sell them all ... I could make at least half a million bucks? I mean ... is it that easy? what's the catch? There must be something I'm missing.
