    What type of site are you looking for? I'm going to flip a website that's earning from adsense in the next few days. Rather deal with a BHW member then a random FLIPPA buyer.

    so I guess a site selling other sites could really be successful if income could be independently determined so that buyers actually get what they pay for. Any ideas how one might go about doing that.

    Have like a week or two inspection period for you to verify earnings yourself. You can do this through Escrow.

    It looks fine to me. Maybe it is because i only look for established sites. Are you looking for the same? I agree the new sites listed there are shit.

    flippa sucks.. the problem is with unrealistic buyers and sellers. Buyers are looking to buy a site that makes x dollars a month for x dollars. and sellers are having a set of templates and booking new domains and use the same template, import the same content and sell the site as an 'Automated adsense site' and price it at 100-150 dollars..

    If they haven't spent the 2 minutes it takes to install G analytics and have a verified report attached to the auction then they probably have something to hide.

    But 95% of the auctions I look at already have verified anaytics attached and 48hr inspection during escrow is enough time to verify traffic sources and earnings.
