    Guys,

    You CANNOT sell sites here so stop asking for information as I'll just close the thread/delete it/ban you.

    Going to close this thread, again, as people don't seem to be able to read the rules.

    The buyer would wonder why don't you monetize it yourself? It depends on the buyer too, how much potential does the website have and so on.

    I know that but from what i've been reading adsense are the best monetization website and they are really strict / picky when it comes to the kind of traffic you bring in . so i wouldn't want a situation where i would get banned or something by adsense

    If your traffic is white hat then adsense wont ban you, if it is blackhat traffic hopefully there is some product u can sell them.

    Adsense is rarely the BEST way to monetize a site, but it is usually the most convenient, hence why people recommend it.

    I'm sure you can find a way to monetize your traffic that doesn't involve Adsense.

    This. If you have actual traffic (not like few dozens of visitors a day), then you have all the tools you need to bank it really. Depending on the type of traffic, the methods will vary, but really anything is better than just letting it idle!

    Likewise with your appraisal thread, people posting statistics about their sites they want to sell will get PMs from others.

    I can't do anything about private communication - but I don't want people posting on threads with "PM the details" as it a) isn't what the thread is about b) leads to issues/shit list threads

    my apologies for asking for OP to PM me details about his site. I am new and no I have not honestly read ALL the rules here. I guess its time to do so.

    Honestly, there is no solution for this, there will always be people who will workaround the system. Like posting your latest SEO strategy might get you people asking if they could pay you to do the task. This won't go away, people will do it, no matter what, unless you want to dictate like DP. Shitlists might occur in this situation but also get removed as fast as they got published.

    sure you can but try to make a little bit of profit, this way you can get much more for your site.

    Some companies just buy sites that already have traffic and monetize them properly. So, yes, of course it's possible to sell your site.
