    Hey,

    I own this website. http://www.healthburden.com

    I started this website nearly 6 months back. It has over 300 unique posts now. I get around 400-500 unique visitors every month through search engine. My original plan was to write over 1000 posts and then start promoting this website so that I can bank good money. However, after nearly 6 months of hard work, I am not left with no patience to work any further on this website. I am at fault at not promoting this website, but I was expecting at least few dollars a day in six month's duration, considering the fact that I was updating unique contents on daily basis without fail. However, the website fetches me only $4 to $5 a month.

    I have exerted loads of time and efforts on this website and I don't want to sell it cheap. I know, based on the revenue I am currently making from this website, I won't make more than $200 or $300. However, the contents it self are worth $1000+. Plus, the cost of domain+hosting and the time devoted for building the website and other stuff. So, how do I go about selling this website for at least $1k.

    I am not looking to do anything blackhat over here. I don't want to resort to fake screenshot or work hard for one month and present that screenshot to the seller. Basically, I am looking for a win-win situation for both of us. Like, offering something addon to the seller so that the seller gets interested in the deal, which is why I need some ideas from you guys.

    This is what I am currently planning to offer:

    -Website with the existing domain as well
    -twitter account with around 1500 followers which was build specifically for this website.
    -1 unique article (300 to 400 words) every week for the next 3 months.


    What more can I offer so that my website sells for 1k?

    unfortunatly selling a website is based on the effort you have put on it, but the content, views a day or month, and revenu. Based on those 3 things, your site is too low to be wroth something good. The article thing too is a bit useless since writing and articxle cost 2$/500 words. And the twitter account with only 1500 followers is very small. Get more viewer, bigger forum, sell it with more profit.

    As far as I understand, it's hard to really sell a website for more than what it can generate in a year so you'd have to be making $80-90 a month to get $1000 for it.

    It doesn't matter how much time you've put into your site.

    One of the most looked factors for buyers is earnings per month, and your site is not really make a lot of money, so chance of $1k will be very slim.

    But anything is possible...

    6 months and you are 4067388 on Alexa... It's sad, you need to get your stuff straight, because you could have pulled soooooo much traffic from Twitter and Facebook in the meanwhile, had you built a proper network.

    I don't see that your content is of high quality either. Your site isn't anywhere near 1k.

    Get better theme one which is optimized for adsense... Proper Ad Placement is needed...

    As pravin suggested you need to change permalinks... (on Page SEO very important)

    You made website and worked hard but should have worked on promotion and onsite optimization also.

    1) stop updating your site daily, weekly update would be enough
    2) Start submitting articles in ezine, goarticles, articlesbase, buzzle ro similar high traffic sites so you get backlinks + traffic to your site
    3) Weekly press release
    4) Intergrate onlywire or similar solution and promote it through social media... You will get good no of links
    5) You can also try isnare, can get good no of backlinks
    6) Pick few of good articles which are in less competition category and make backlinks for them, you will get visitors and revenue
    7) Create web 2.0 for sites... (Link Wheel)

    I know it's lot of work but you doing similar things already, Just distribute your work. Earlier you were giving 100% on site now keep 5% on site and rest on promotion.

    Work for next 3 month and you may be able to sell it for more then 1k... or you might decide to keep it for your own. I am sure if you work in this way you will start making decent money.
