    Someone is trying to sell me a health medicine niche EMD that has low competition, 4400 global and 2900 local searches 1.19 CPC, the site is already built and currently ranking 5th. Since the site is already built obviously the domain would be included, he wants $45, is this worth it?

    Is the design unique or cookie cutter?

    If it's a nice looking web page and already ranking well I would say yes...

    Honestly the site looks pretty crappy... and now this guy is making me wonder if it may be a scam or something... He claims he doesnt have adsense on the site, but adsense is obviously there. When I confronted him about it, he claims he took it off because of an issue with his account, but now its back on there... How can I check to see if this guy really even owns this site?

    45 is nothing. I receive DAILY emails from guys in my niche trying to sell me various EMD for 300-3000 ESL for $100- $600.
    So if you would like to do something with that site, I would grab it until someone else does so. (these sellers usually send more emails. First come - gets the domain)

    I'd take a look and see if they are targeting the keyword in their backlinks, if they are not you should be good to go, if they are it'll take a little more time/work.

    Hey, I don't know what your keyword is but it sounds like a good deal.

    If there is a trademarked term in the domain, you might have some trouble later on. Keep that in mind. I would thing pharmaceutical companies would be pretty strict on that.

    so for an example, if this keyword/domain was musinexusages.com then since musinex is trademarked I should avoid this site? What kind of trouble would I get into? Loosing my adsense account?

    Run a search on their backlinks and check the anchor texts of their links for your keyword, if the keyword is in the anchor text then those backlinks are targeting it.

    After this look into the quality of the backlinks and also if it would be possible for you to obtain the same backlinks.


    In regards to the trademark issue, if the trademark holder wanted to, and they had sufficient grounds to, they could have your site shut down:(

    so the only thing I risk loosing is the site itself, not my adsense account or anything like that
