    Only $500K BIN. Not sure that I believe their claim that they only 15% of their customers were affected by Penguin or how they would even know that for sure. These guys used to be pretty big back in the days of Digital Points, looks like they are still pulling in some decent revenue. Wondering if anyone had any experience with them post Penguin/Panda?

    I guess they selling due to the bad rep the site have, they have another site just like that as well.

    "only"?

    They are asking for way too much... I would be surprised if anyone paid them even 100k for that site/business.

    That site is a total scam. I used it several years back. Got some bullshit reports of forums they supposedly posted on. Got absolutely 0 backlinks from them.

    That first bid is obviously also complete bullshit. No-one bids that high straight away.

    It's a declining revenue model and the profit dancing is not entirely encouraging. Posting something with a Buy it now of 30xx++ the monthly profit is kinda ridiculous.

    The 200k as eloquently pointed out by Meathead, is bullshit. No-one with that kind of cash would be stupid enough to buy this kind of listing, I don't get their end game. If they we legitimately listing it, they might as well use a broker instead of this amateurish scam garbage.

    Aren't they the ones with all those "PR 9 Backlinks" banners all over the place? Always wondered how those same banners could still be effective after all this time

    It smells like a scam to me.

    If they are legit, why sell them, especially after the major update.
