    Ok for the last 2 months I've been flipping autoblogs and I was wondering whether it would be in my best interest to just hold on to them instead and build a network of autoblogs instead?

    As of today I'm averaging $45+ per flip and wondering if I held on to them maybe I would generate more money with Amazon sales and/or adsense or any ppc ads. In the long run I need a situation that is consistently generating cashflow with less workload. Any ideas?

    Note: This post is NOT for noobs to ask me a million and one questions on how to flip autoblogs. I'm not trying to be an a**hole but I need some insight to better my business. For those wanting that info stay tuned for my flipping autoblogs membership site (wordpress autoblogs) so please be a contributor to the question I'm asking :)

    I thought of flipping my autoblogs too in the past but i didn`t do it. You will make money on the long run but there are problems when it comes to maintaining and of course some autoblogs will just die down i guess.

    See yea I would like something consistent but I guess maybe I could hold on to them til they're no longer consistent then flip them.

    A few quick questions:
    How old are the blogs when you flip them?
    How much traffic do they get when you flip?

    If you held for a couple more months, increased unique visitors and maybe showed some clicks on Amazon, CB, CPA, etc. will you gain more value and a higher sales price?

    I'm thinking about flipping some of my autoblogs also. I have traffic, been indexed, and get clicks to Amazon and some CB & CPA's. Sales only on Amazon so far. I just stared building ABs in October and have 32 so far. My thinking was the value will increase once the blog makes a few sales.

    On the other hand, once it's making sales does it have enough traction for me to keep it? Definitely an ROI dilemma.

    redfulong as I mentioned in the original thread I'm not taking any questions about my flipping business you'll have to wait for my membership program launch.

    I'm only asking for insight on what people think I should do or any ideas or strategies I may not have thought of to improve on what I'm doing.

    Woops almost forgot, if u have a good alexa rank or a PR you can use it to sell links even after it dies down. The longer u keep a domain name and run it, it is better to keep it..

    If you can get them earning about $1 per day each, then in only a month and a bit you get back your flipping profit, no?

    That of course will take effort, so YMMV

    Yea I completely forgot link sales King that could work. Judson it would take some effort but if I can get each one making at least $1 per day I could see me being content with that as it will match my 9-5 income and allow me to concentrate on other things like the membership programs I want to develop and maintain.
