    Headline, headline, headline mate!

    Seriously, there's so many listings over there at Flippa that your headline pretty much decides if you sell your site for $100 or $1,000.

    Your site has some decent traffic and is already monetized which is a huge plus compared to most of the junk people are trying to sell - TELL THE BUYERS ABOUT IT in your headline!

    Your current headline:
    Code:
    HotNiche Yoga for Beginners DVD buying Keyword site
    My suggestion:
    Code:
    Established Yoga Site | Stable $20/mo Adsense | 10k views/mo
    Try it once your auction ends and I can guarantee you that you'll notice a difference.

    Oh, and your price is WAY too high. Can't ask $1,000 (min bid. $200) for a site that generates $20 per month unless there's some significant extra value/potential in it. The golden rule is 10x the monthly income.

    Agreed. I am so sick of people asking stupid prices for their crappy sites that don't generate anything

    Lol, didn't notice before that the 'unique' content your site has is all obviously auto-generated:

    Hint: Site that don't rank well, generate $20/mo in Adsense revenue and have auto-generated / fetched content don't usually score very well at $200 starting bid / $990 BIN auctions ;)

    thanks guys... this is my first site on flippa and need to learn things by trial and error.

    started implementing the changes you have recommended. The content on the site was partially because of the Caffienated Content that i have run at the beginning of the setup ...

    But there are some 5 posts that created on my own that are 100% unique . All my backlinks are to these 5 posts.

    will update you on the developments.

    I actually noticed this, but this doesn't mean that 99% of your potential buyers will. There's so many sites for sale out there (and so much rubbish to swim through!) that a slightest error will make a potential buyer close your site and never return.
