What I don't understand is this. Auctions that are 4 weeks before end with bidding wars starting on the first day. Then in next day or two reserve is met, which IMO for this one particular auction on Flippa, is too low. A ton of comments are posted... and 10 days from the start the price is twice the reserve and bidding war continues. There are 9 bidders and 144 bids and the auction is 17 days from finishing... WTF?! Who in their right mind would start a war so quickly to alert all the rest of the community something is going on? You can wait a day or two before the end like with all the rest of the "normal" auctions, but going hard at it from the day it is listed... My first thought was ok this is staged. They will push it slowly towards the reserve and then let the last sucker buy it. But when reserve was met a week ago and the push didn't subside... Could there be 3 friends pushing the price up and the 4th sucker will end overpaying. I mean how does Flippa handle auctions when 3 top bidders back out? Does the 4th bidder still get the chance to buy it? Oh, the auction: search for GUESTPOSTDIRECTORY.COM on Flippa - I am not allowed to post URLs here yet. I would normally be interested in investigating further, since I have a ton of resources I could throw at this network and grow its metrics much bigger, but this abnormality put me off. I did send the seller a few questions and he didn't convince me either. What's your opinion on this?
