    https://flippa.com/5737833-10-y-o-a...h-2m-profit-32m-uniques-in-2015-33-yoy-growth

    "Truly a one-of-a-kind opportunity with limitless earning potential, this highly reputable business has grown revenue consistently at 33% YoY for the past three years, with cash flow topping $2m on 32m Uniques and 65m Pageviews in 2015. Quite simply, this is one the most influential and successful websites ever to be listed on Flippa."

    "Precautions will be taken to ensure prospective buyers have the financial capacity to make an acquisition of this magnitude. Buyers unable to make this level of acquisition or unable to provide proof of financial capacity need not apply."

    The stats say that the site was established in November 2005, but the domain wasn't registered until April 2006.

    Diamond Damien (member 1) join date was four days prior to November 2005: http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackhat-seo/members/1-diamond-damien.html. Just enough time to spend a week or so building up sections and research and template things for a vBulletin forum.

    The domain was registered in April 2006 per the sale listing. The WhoIs for BHW states the following: Creation Date: 15-apr-2006

    I may be way off base here, as a lot of other information doesn't match (Alexa rank, Moz score, traffic sources, etc). If that ends up being the case, I'll close this thread right up.

    1.4 pages per session and average session of 36 seconds per the listing makes me think it's probably not BHW...

    AND, that's a crazy multiple they're shooting for.

    89% traffic from referral and only 7% from organic this can't be BHW for sure.Apart from that 65000 pages indexed only for BHW its half a million,Given PR is 5,BHW PR is 4.Also Tony_d point about avg visit time and pageviews cant be for a forum like BHW.

    Nah, Warrior Forum has been around since like 2001 or something. It's not WickedFire, as $15m for a rapidly dying forum is pathetically overkill. It's not DP, either. It might be something unrelated to IM completely. But whatever it is probably has a paid subscription option as a result of that level of revenue I'd think.

    The alexa rank shows it is not Blackhatworld.

    I think we all know its mostly likely a coincidence...

    but just in case its not, can we all start throwing around wild accusations and making assumptions anyway?

    The Stats don't really tally with BHW and as much as I love BHW would I value it at $15000000?
