    Im always seeing sites that are selling for a nice profit that I could easily make myself and rank better. I just seen a 2 month old site claiming to make $200 month adsense and he has verified analytics for traffic so its believable. It also has 1 article and only 30 backlinks.. WTF is it really that easy?

    So do you think flippa is a good place for niche ideas?

    I see some warriors (at the warrior forum) are pissed over having their flippa sites duped

    I'm not allowed to post links, so look for the thread "Sites listed on Flippa get duped"
    from June

    Yeah, that because one of them has released a product teaching people how to do just this (look for sites on Flippa and replicate them) and is selling it for a few bucks a pop lol.

    I actually wrote a pretty long and comprehensive article on this subject earlier today. Should have it published in a few days and will try and remember to post the link in this thread :)

    People always over pay and take big risks on flippa, I almost feel that the sites that get legitimate traffic and revenue every month for a year+ end up being the sites that only sell for like 6 months worth.

    Flippa works when you weed out the crap and pay attention to the fake bidders.

    Here аrе ѕоmе ideas to kick things off:


    • Local newsagent - magazines cаn bе а good indicator that a topic has а solid readership. Flicking through mags сan give уou ideas оf micro niches
    • Trawl thrоugh Amazon sub-categories аnd popular products
    • Twitter trends
    • Google Keyword Tool (you nеed а niche idea beforе starting yоur start digging though)
    • Google Trends & Insights
    • Website trading sites (Flippa etc)
