    I listed my first site on Flippa a couple days ago. It's received a few bids so far, and has around 32 people watching the listing (not sure if that's good). Around 4 days left to go on the auction.

    Anyways, it's an Adsense site, and unfortunately, for the 4 days I've had the listing up, earnings haven't been too great. Just goes to show my luck haha.

    In your experience, how much does this effect the sale? I know there are a lot of beginners buying at Flippa, so they may look at the more recent earnings, as oppose to the sites history (in this case, my site has 4 months earnings proof).

    What do you guys think?

    Has traffic dropped too? Lost some rankings?

    By what % is the income down on average?

    Traffic has actually gone up a bit (I assume cause of the Flippa listing). So generally, I'd say traffic is about the same. Rankings are still the same.

    Site was making roughly $5 per day last month. The last 6 days earnings, in order, below:

    $4.30
    $1.60
    $4.05
    $1.08
    $1.82
    $0.00

    I guess on the bright side, I'm still getting some bids haha.
