    I've been seeing a ton of sites like these lately:

    https://flippa.com/2703704-4-in-1-s...ade-1805-in-1st-29-days-no-reserve-no-exp-req

    They all make like 2k profit in under a month, and say that they have some revolutionary traffic generating method that they'll only share with the winner. I've seen like 10-20 sites just like this one in the last couple of weeks alone that are all like this one. Anybody have any ideas as to how they're getting this traffic?

    I think that this question was asked here at BHW before in some previous thread. You can search for it.

    A lot of these sites are big time scams. They're just groups of people buying and selling each others services to make it look natural.

    They might buy again after the sale just to comfort you short term.

    I am pretty sure that after the auction the "outsourcing company" is owned by them too. So if you manage to draw in any sales, they still make money.

    Always remember, on Flippa... when things are too good to be true... run far, far away.

    OP I've been trying to figure this out for years...

    Truthfully, some of these sales are offered from people who huge HUGE Flippa reps. I saw one just yesterday offered that is selling for $100,000 and is like a month old with sales of $10,000 a month! These particular individuals have been selling for years on Flippa and have not one complaint against them. And if not mistaken are members of this site. :cool:

    They must have a hell of a network traffic funnel to raise those stats and sales in 1 month.

    Im abit afraid of flippa.com, the sites that are sold there, especially the ones you guys are refering are little bit to good to be true.

    These stats look too good to be true. I'd personally stay away from such sites especially when the price is so high and stats look unnatural.

    Most, if not all of this seller sites does not show traffic. He always states the following

    So by now with all of the sites he sell, he should be able to at least take 3minutes out to install Google Analytics to his sites. Now, there is many ways to earn that kind of money from a new website. Now, you still have to be careful at what you purchase.

    Brutal I would not trust it. I have a couple sites selling fans for over a year and everyday new punks email me asking for the best reseller rate I can give them. I've even had people rip off my site and try to sell it on flippa!

    Most of the stories I come a across from clients stem from so called wonder auctions like this. Stay clear.
