    The above website is what Im considering buying. Could anyone experienced with flippa take a quick look at it please? He gave me access to his google analytics and it looks legit. Its my first website Im considering buying and dont want to get scammed.

    Took a look at it in Ahrefs, doesn't look too bad. They got a sound Backlink profile and some good rankings and steady traffic, however traffic&rankings have been dropping for them heavily since June, so I am guessing they got hit by some google update. Probably regarding their anchors.

    They started gaining traffic July 2018, so idk why they are claiming that they started in 2017.

    If I was you I would take a good look at their backlink profile and onpage SEO and figure out why they are loosing traffic, as otherwise it will just continue with you and you will buy a dying site.

    Pm me if you want the report, not going to post it here or everyone will know the domain, which I doubt is what you want.

    I thought the traffic may have died a little as summer has ended in america and I think that season is the peak for this niche but you may be right

    looks like a lot of the visits are direct .... Did he give you any more detail on how much money it has made? looks like a lot to pay for such a thin website to me.

    If it's not then why I can see it? Lol it's public information, just make a flippa account for free and you can see it. I'm not sure about all the fuss to keep it hidden when the op put it on his question...


    This is the domain

    The traffic might be legit but I doubt the income is legit. Ask him to let you use anydesk or something and him log into the income info right in front of you so you can see it but even then make sure the sales are from that site. With adsense based sites you can see the income per url and you cant really fake that but with amazon he might have more than one URL driving those sales. And I really doubt the whole deal with someone paying him $85 for a guest post.

    I sell a lot of high end sites and I always let the buyer (as long as I feel they are serious) have access to the adsense accounts to verify everything and I always give them a short time period to get a refund. Ask him if he is willing to do that.

    Don't touch that. His Amazon clicks for July is just shy of 3.1k while his traffic is barely 2.9k. I didn't further but there's definitely something fishy here.

    They have steady backlinking a good sign. Now check how often have they updated their site. What I find weird is returning users are less. But what I pointed out depends on the niche really.

    And nobody here puts into consideration that he might be trying to sell his own website?

    Just saying that chances are very high this guy is just trying to sell his website on here. I could be wrong, but when a link is involved that points to a site where you can purchase something, in this case a website, you should ask yourself this question and nobody seems to be doing that.

    something seems to be shady, the links are not that great and earnings are not matching up.
