Well if they buy out of pity then I can be rich in no time! LOL
lol. I see some awful sites sell for loads on there. Im going to put my baby up there soon.
ppl buy those sites not for the content or how it looks, but for the domain name itself and the age.
kwt [forklifts for sale] high | 2900

If you can sell one forklift a month you will make back that sale price pretty fast.
Hopefully the new owner monetizes it properly.
only 2 bid. Is there any chance the seller bought the site himself?
Also, if you check out what the seller offers if a buyer uses the buy it now option (which they did), that's a lot of foundational "grunt work" taken care of with all those Web 2.0 pages/posts and article directory submissions and social network accounts created.
Sure, most of us here at BHW could fire up a few tools and pump that stuff out pretty quick (which is what I'm sure the seller does), but for the average person who hasn't the knowledge or tools to automate with yet, that's days and even weeks worth of site launching labor taken care of for you.
For that average newbie, they would have to write all that content themselves, then create all the accounts, post and publish the content...it's a lot of work when you don't automate. So, having all of it done already is a real value-add.
The key is getting buyers to view your auction offer who are at that newbie stage. A majority on Flippa know the tools and systems, so you won't get them to fork over the big bucks for a few Web 2.0's and spun articles, but if you can get a couple eager newbies to see your listing, make them a great offer on lots of prep work being done for them, and show some revenue it's not hard to get a decent price from the sale.
As far as the ugliness of the site, I doubt very much that search engine spiders can tell what a site looks like.
This site could be the steal of the century for someone in the fork lift industry. OP you need to broaden your view a bit, there is value in purchasing a website and domain rights to a website like this.
15,757,098 Alexa Rank $1,000 a dumbass bought that junk.
Wow.. check out the reported earnings..
This site has grossed $118.91 from Adsense since going live November 09 to date.
I have new sites that earn more than that in 2 months. Looks like I need to start flipping. ))
The spiders can't, but Google's panda "quality" raters can
Not sure if you noticed but it ended last year. A lot of things have changed since then
Yeah, but still the site is indexed and ranking in the keyword. Maybe he just got lucky with that site.
Facebook also crappy but worth $18 billion.
Money to be made on flippa. That website looks like straight from the 90's...
I'm mailing the retard of the year award to you now, should be with you soon.
FO! Again! FO!
My thoughts exactly. Companies pay big money to get domain names they want. Maybe this matched their needs.
Separate names with a comma.
