    So guys, i own a forum. the main niche is travel/entertainment
    i worked so hard in first 3 years on that. then i got involve in other stuff and forgot that website.
    a few of my friends kept posting as it's a forum. But since last 2 years. its almost just sitting there.
    it used to make me more then 5K a month at first. then after i quit working on it , still used to give me a few hundred USDs.
    but now it's not making any money at all.
    i been using adsense with it . over the past few years , used a few adsense accounts, got suspended, got another account and made some money.
    in start , made plenty backlinks, Did email marketing as well, Did all sort of techniques.. i must say , it was my first IM experience.
    The website has huge content at the moment.
    it's SMF forum.
    the stats are like over 10 thousand members, over 10 thousand topics, over 60 thousand posts (most of em are just crap at the moment)
    PR is 2 at the moment.
    I have no idea in how much i should sell it .
    i know without the URL , it's hard to guess.
    Somebody interested could request a PM n i ll send you the link

    Some of the key stats your missing is how many active members.

    I would find other businesses/companies in that area of interest and try to broker a private deal as a ready go travel community to bolster there social marketing efforts.

    Too much of a sales thread. You shouldn't be asking people to "PM you about the site".

    Thread closed.
