    A friend asked me if I could help him to sell a site that he had build fully custom, for streaming movies and torrent links along with tv series as well all in one. Basically if the movie or show is not currently in the database when someone searches for it on the site, the site will grab torrent and streaming links and then populate the db (all in real time in the background) and will then show the results. He never had the time to set it up to make money so he kept it running to get a userbase as a totally free site, no ads or popups etc. It has been live since Nov 2012 and the domain is paid until Nov 2014. The seo is great on it and it has a decent flow of traffic and a very brandable domain name. It is running on wordpress, but all custom, so updating and expanding it should be straight forward.

    What are the best places for him to sell such a site and find the right buyer who knows how to monitize such a site that will value it at a decent buying price? He wants to sell it quickly as some family medical issues have come up and he needs to raise as much money as he can in very little time.

    The site is
    Code:
    www.MovieDevil.com

    This will be hard selling it cause Flippa dont accept that kind of sites.Your best bet is to list it on forums like DP,WF.Maybe you will get some luck there.

    Seriously though OP, you should try the WTS section of the forum, this area is for discussion about site flipping, not a place to sell your sites.

    Not sure where your friend would be able to sell this site without getting scammed in the process. Sites like Flippa won't allow the website to be sold.

    Difficult niche to sell. Not impossible, but you'd need to look away from the usual recommendation of Flippa. If it's not making any money then it's likely not really worth much, especially if he's "desperate to sell to pay medical bills" - which is one of the most common bullshit reason people use for selling.

    There are more than enough threads in this section for you to figure out how to sell the site without posting the URL here (especially as you've been here 5 years so should know how the forum works by now)... so I am assuming it's either your site or you're hoping someone will feel sorry for your "friend" and PM you offers. If you want to sell it here (probably not the worst idea in the world as the BHW demographic would be open to the niche), then open a thread in BST like everyone else.

    Thread closed.
