    yeah that's true, i had a 1 1/2 year old site which was recently hit by G update & its traffic was 0. but recently i sold it for just $400. although am happy because now i will use the funds to build a nice amazon affiliate site & flip it later.

    PS: don't worry if your site is not making money, people still interested to buy it because if it has potential to earn in future, some BHW fellows said that site that having 0 traffic or 0 revenue never sold on flippa. but thats wrong!

    There must have been something good about it? Good amount of content? Good metrics? Good backlinks?

    Can't someone just build beautiful websites and sell them all set up to buyers who have plans/funds to invest and take the website to the next level? Regardless of what the traffic is?

    yeah, its kinda affiliate review site!
    $400, infact the buyer is very interested if i hold it for more days i may get minimum $600 to $1000.
    the content & on page is worst but i purchased some high quality links from sellers here from BHW.

    Not necessarily. The site could have gem equivalent of content, keywords and backlinks. Which may have convinced the buyer to grab the site.

    this was a health niche affiliate review site.
    don't know honestly, the buyer has seen the gems:p
    i think that never work, nowadays the buyers make background research before they buy. what i feel is a catching headline & nice description how the site going to make $$$ in future will help to flip any site.
    :)
    may be.

    No, not really he can use the site as part of his PBN and if there is any traffic to funnel it

    Nothing, that is why it is important to know how to read the numbers and to have experience in the type of website and markets you are trying to get in.

    1000% right
