    Hello eveyone. I was curious if someone could clear up how this website on flippa is profitable? https://flippa.com/6068701-site-with-299-188-uniques-mo-making-37-698-mo

    I got an email notification that it was making 37,698 revenue so I had to check it out. On flippa it looks like all their traffic is coming from facebook paid search. Usually facebook advertising is pretty expensive and adsense does not pay that much.

    Fair warning - sometimes that revenue is not verified, they may be inflating it so that an unaware buyer would snap it up at a higher price that it's worth.

    Honestly, the site is not even worth $1k. I am amazed to see the current bid at $50k.

    Am I missing something?

    If the site gets sold, I am going to replicate the project and sell it to the fools on flippa. All it takes is to find a profitable campaign.

    How hard is it to find a profitable campaign with sites like this? I've tried many times to find profitable campaigns for CPA offers on facebook but never had success.

    When you look at the bidding history of these sites you can always see how these sellers inflate the pricing, For this domain the second highest bid is 15k, So you can see how stupid they think flippa buyers are.

    Well you can say the owners are smart but not the buyers.
