    ive been skimming thru the flippa auctions last few days, and it seems like everyone who made a killing pre-april is now selling off their decent money makers for pennies of what its actually worth in rev pr month, and when i post a comment asking about why uniques and rev is slowing down after penguin update, they just ignore my comment (ive tried asking atleast 5. no answers)

    are most of these sites blasted with SEO/blablabla tools before penguin, and now that their site dropped like a ton of bricks, they try to sell it off cheap ?

    Thought?

    Someone needs to call Batman so he can get rid of this Penguin character. Last I've seen of him was in 1995.

    I've been looking brought Flippa too as I am trying to find a decent site to invest in but I am still unsure of which are a good deal and which look dodgy. If you aren't going to buy them yourself could you pm me with a few of the ones that you think look good? Thanks

    Big G's updates are creating waves in flippa also. Lets wait and see the trend. Its just like a dip in shares prices and some sites may be bought for a nice cheap price in this dip.
    BTW where is meathead? He may give some critical analysis of it.

    I think this is a great time to buy some sites up. Everybody's panicking and sites are selling for a lot cheaper. A great opportunity for those who seize it.

    I am not seeing it myself, there is plently of crap created in last two month going for the same silly amounts as usual. For that kind of money you are better off registering your own domain and installing wordpress yourself.

    The sites that are really worth picking up (with an age greater then 1 year) are still fetching a decent price.

    So Meathead did not give any comments here?
    Hope he may give us the right analysis about that soon.

    What I see in flippa is - Every each and forth day "Autoblog site made $xxxxx in 10 days. Crap selling sites , And people are even bidding on them , If you can took a deep look you'll find it revolves around fake bids.
    Actually valuable sites are not going to bother for this update, their revenue is not going to be affected. Money making sites specially from affiliate ones will still remain "Value for Money"
