    Hi guys,


    I have a website for sale but I don't want to sell it on Flippa as it will reveal the niche and domain name so what the hell do I do? Since the 1st of April till June 6th it has made over £2500.


    I'm saving for a car, check my journey, but my patience is running out as i want it now (spoilt brat lol). Site has good stats and has potential to be a 300%+ better than what it is now. The theme I'm using is rubbish and my CTR is less than 0.50%. Someone with good knowledge could easily triple this!


    I'm just wondering if it averages approx £1k each month, I currently have over 2 months worth of proof to show that it makes money off adsense (I'm not skilled at adsense at all by the way check my threads from a couple month ago I'm just lucky) what is this website worth if I sold it, I don't want much as I would like to see it fast; this would be my first site I've ever sold though.


    It gets around 1 million page views each month. Around 7-10k traffic each day, all organic!


    The site requires very little work to maintain, that's the awesome thing about it.


    Anyone with ideas let me know, please don't inbox me asking for details as I'm not going to disclose anything unless it's someone who is well respected etc.


    Cheers,


    Revolate.

    I suggest you keep it, with that history no one will shell out loads as it could be quite risky, with a years earnings behind it you can flip it for big bucks. I suggest growing it to it's potential or investing the profits in other similar sites and perfect your formula.

    if you do decide to sell it and you're afraid of competitors, make people sign a NDA and non compete if they decide not to buy it.

    Just my 2 cents.

    Yeah I understand that; I wouldn't want top bucks, but I'd want atleast 5 months worth as it's a popular site with growing potential; if someone with the right skill set had it they could easily make there money back in 2 month. (Should probably just hire someone to help me lol!)

    Cheers for your reply though!

    Hi, have you done any SEO on it and how did it survive penguin 2.0? How old is the domain, and how many pages does the site has and can you please post some site stats here? Finally how much are you looking to get for it?

    I bought some social bookmarks; penguin 2.0 wasn't an issue as it ranks #1 for majority of it's keywords. Domain is only around 3 month old; 40+ pages. I'll post site stats for May.
