Is it worth it to buy a niche website on here?

    I'm a noob but I see in the marketplace people selling niche websites for amazon and adsense, is it worth buying them? Any ones you recommend?

    The thing that bothers me is that if these sites were good they would just be banking on them and not just selling them for 50$?

    If you cannot build a site yourself, then sure, it's worth the 50$. Otherwise you'd have to hire someone to do it for you and that would probably cost more, as the sellers here have a process in place that minimizes the costs due to the sales volumes they get.

    However, don't think the work stops there and you'll just buy a 50$ site (plus the domain and the hosting) and leave it be and it'll earn you more than 50$ per month. The reason they sell the sites is simply that it's less work for them than to handle multiple sites each month and update them with fresh content etc.

    You'll have to do work on those sites after you receive them, but the same is true for sites you build yourself.

    So not saying the sites aren't good, I've bought a couple myself in my early days of IM and they worked just fine, but they never banked me more than a few dollars per week on "autopilot". I'm currently putting some life into the two sites and seeing how it goes, you can follow the process in my journey thread.

    This reminds me, I need to update my journey thread!

    I can build the base of a wordpress site by myself just fine(talking about installing the theme, the plugins, basic wordpress settings etc) and buy a logo for 5$ off fiverr etc, but I'm a noob so my keyword research and stuff is pretty bad and I don't have things like semrush and I'm not sure what niche to select etc. So you would say the added value of these sites that they will select your niche and keyword is great enough to justify a purchase?

    I can vouch for fiverose and keywordspot. They've both made me good quality micro niche sites. I'd suggest keywordspot over fiverose, simply because he was faster by far. But it all depends on the keyword and the amount of work you are willing to put into it to make it shine.

    I bought an adsense site from a seller here and it was meh.

    If I were to do it again, I'd just buy from a keyword seller here, and then outsource the content writing, and then slap it together myself.

    I can build sites by myself but i have tried many of these services.
    On about 10 or 20 mns bought here, even by adding more content and doing basic seo (this is what you are only supposed to do if you read the selling threads), none of those sites have a decent ranking ...
    All you'll get is a website with crappy content, in a competitive niche and the awesome theme design is really often a nulled premium theme you can download from here for free.
    So you'd better find a niche by yourself and try to build your own mns and keep your money for good content writing service.
    Hekke's threads are really good if you want to try an amazon business.

    Lol, hekke's guide is exactly what I used yesterday to build my amazon site. But I'm kind of stuck on determining the layout and categories etc and exact keywords I need to target.

    Have you made any money off them? With how much work?

    That's what I thought, what tools would you recommend me to get though?

    If someone can create niche site for you and charge you 30$ it's ok, you can pay it, but if you have plans to work with niche sites it's better for you to start building it by yourself, you will learn how to do it properly, you will get more experience and you will save money with your next sites.

    Internet is free. Knowledge is free.

    Use it!

    I recommend you do research and build the site yourself.

    Research is the most important part.

    Don't generalize that heavily mate, that's not the case for all the sellers.

    But sure, if you can whip up a Wordpress site with a basic theme on your own and do some basic keyword research, then you don't need a service like that. They're meant for people who can't or can't be arsed to do that.

    ubbersuggest, google keyword planner, semrush free, serplab.co.uk, smallseotools free plagiarism checker are good tools to start for free ...

    I know ... I'm just speaking about "cash machines with little or no effort" for 20 or 30 $ ...
    That doesn't exist, and no one would sell a 5000$/m money making website for this price.
