    Welcome to Black Hat World........................
    Home Page:
    I am in the process of making an authority site.

    I take a look at my competitors.

    and my strongest competitor has an alexa rating of around 400.

    I search the sites name....
    and what do I find...

    they are selling it on flippa.

    To sell it... they post the following info
    server cost.
    google analytics
    adsense earning
    other earnings
    number of people running the site
    total expenses
    gross profits
    and
    2011,2010,2009 earnings.

    Just all the info that I need to get a good idea
    of what the sites potential can be.

    basically... i am getting to look at my competitors books...

    GOD is great.

    My question as well. If I had the money, I would buy the one for sale,
    and still build my new site. Just dominate the niche my brother.

    I thought about buying it...
    but...
    the bids were $100,000+ and it did not sell.

    so apparently he wants more....

    the site makes him like $20k a month or so...
    so it's understandable that he might want more.

    I see. Either way, it's nice to have a blueprint in which to follow, and know how much you can expect to make with similar traffic and monetization methods.

    Good luck on the project.

    So he didn't sell the site?
    If he didn't, that means its worth more than $100k to him... go for it!
