    Do you actually own these? How have you calculated the estimated site value without having any sort of monetization implemented?

    I'm no expert when it comes to flipping sites, but even if they did make the value stated they still seem overpriced by about twofold.

    Edit: Back on topic though, are you only looking for PPC forms of monetization? Have you tried selling ad space, or signing up to Amazon affiliates? I would imagine the ad space would be a good form of revenue based on your traffic.

    I don't know too much about monetization, but I would imagine that you would get a better click-through rate and a better conversion rate with Amazon as pretty much everyone has used Amazon before.

    Have you tried selling ad space though? https://buysellads.com/

    You should try media.net, it's not like adsense, but it's still decent. I think they're the best option after adsense when it comes to PPC.
    P.S. they only accept sites in english language and they only have text ads.

    LOL,

    U are joking right?

    Those sites are crap. That PR is most likely Faked. These are Pligg based generic bookmark spam havens (the type I spam the shit out of on a day by day basis)... and the two I checked even deindexed!

    That "traffic" is submitters hitting your site with thousands of proxies all day (ever hear of GSA).

    There's nothing there, no human visitors. Ad networks are not retarded... they won't pay you for junk/bot traffic. This is why Adsense banned you.

    Hope you did not pay too much for them on Flippa or wherever you picked them up from. Sorry to bring bad news, but better realise this now than later. All these are garbage... should have done your homework first.

    bullshit, just bullshit, Is alexa rank fakeable? can GSA and senuke pass fucking visual puzzle piece captchas? the site uses intense captchas, visual not letter based.

    do fucking bots Misclick? like click on ads when submitting over proxy? i highly doubt my adsense clicks that were from the UK were fucking Senuke or gsa.

    thanks for trying to pwn me but fuckoff man, the PR is not fake, google deindexed because of the nature of PLIGG sites, google "adsense with pligg". i have real visitors as SEnuke and GSA wouldnt click a fucking link.

    LOL

    OK Champ, you have awesome sites, just need to figure out how to monetize them, and you're all set.

    Alexa rank not fakeable? Are you serious?

    Google de-indexing Pliggs? Man I submit to 2,000+ Pligg based sites every day.... guess what, 90%+ healthily indexed.... yours, not so much.

    Did you buy these things on Flippa or were you the one trying to push this garbage? ... the listings are all over the SERPs (unlike your sites).

    A. Yes, alexa rank can be faked. $5 fiverr gigs to do that.
    B. Don't know specifically about GSA/SENuke etc but you can buy captcha solving cheap that would nullify your captcha and that can probably be integrated with those tools.
    C. You probably have some SEO people manually submitting, thus the low clicks on adsense etc.
    D. The actual member counts vs traffic don't seem to jive and tell me something just ain't right.

    Regardless, looking at the posts on a couple of the sites it's clear people are just using them for the backlinks etc. So actually getting any money out of them would be next to impossible. But hey. That's just my opinion.

    really.... who knows, who cares?

    If you were the one who bought these on Flippa and not the one pushing them, whoever sold them to you prob clicked some ads, via bots scripts, or whatever, just to make you take your wallet out.

    edit: as poster above mentions, sure, a few "manual/whitehat SEO guys might come along and drop a link here and there, 1 or 2 might even click an add however unlikely that may be.... the rest really is just submitters behind proxies.... or even the guys who sold you the site still having a drip of traffic hitting sites to make sure you don't go report them to Flippa.

    Why do you think Adsense banned your account ?! Answer: fraudulent clicks and activity.

    I'm not trying to be an ass..... I'm really hoping that you are being genuine, and not fishing this thread looking for some suckers that post and you will then PM with offers of selling your high traffic sites for cheap! But if you are being genuine... dude, I know more about bookmarking sites than 99% of this forum. I make my living building links on these sites..... they have no intrinsic value, other than a place to drop your links, and no real traffic other than bots, spiders, submitters, etc.

    the PR is real, the wayback machine shows its grown ALL member base SLOWLY over time, a year ago the site had 2000ish members its only up to 3700 members right now.

    Bots cannot make an account on my site. would the userbase increase that slowy over 1 year if it was a fucking senuke usable site? i think not.

    The traffic to all 5 sites is 90% indian. explains the de-index for the english skills are not on par.

    they were tied into a huge almost private network and gained members slowly over the past year.....

    Soooo... Looking at the alexa graph for those sites it's pretty clear it was botted and isn't a real ranking... Given 95% or so of all visitors are from india/pakastan etc should also be clear indication something just ain't right with those sites.

    OK but can these sites be of any use to me at all? What CAN I do with them ? Use domains for authority sites to use the PR? If I can't make money then what CAN I use them for?

    Had a look at one of the ones that was deindexed.. They link spammed it over the last month or 2.. Before that, nothing.. That's probably why it's been deindexed. Along with the fake alexa ranking, I'd say the PR is most likely fake as well... It appears you bought these off flippa and I'm sorry to say you were scammed.

    I really don't know what you could possibly do with them at this point. There's only one that hasn't been deindexed and all the others are basically worthless now.
