    Hi guys,

    I am looking to buy a website for under $100. I was wondering how this works, do I purchase a site and expect there to be traffic already? If there is some traffic already, all I have to do is bring in more organic/paid traffic to make my money back right?

    Is it that simple? Can anyone show me where to purchase said site with a guardsmen return back of money with profits? I only know of flippa but am not too sure if it is trustworthy enough

    Thanks

    Don't waste your money, $100 won't get you a site, let alone one with traffic. If someone says they have one that does all that, I wouldn't trust them but that's just me.

    I don't even think you can get one on Flippa for under $500, and THOSE I would even stay from.

    To be honest, the best thing you can do with that $100 is TRY to do it yourself first. Get your hands dirty, understand the basics and then once you feel confident on what to look for when the time comes to by one, then you'll know.

    Good luck!

    It is not that easy at all. In fact a lot of work needs to go in at the front end of a website. If you are after quick money with little to no work, you are better off keeping your $100.

    If you truly want to make money online then lurk here a bit more - this place is a goldmine of information. Don't expect anyone to spoonfeed you though.

    Buying a site under $100? I don't think you will get anything worthy in that amount. Your best bet is to get a domain & start your own site. Use the money to hire a writer if you can't write yourself.

    I wouldn't buy a site even with your money on that budget. For $100 you can get a cheap site, but it's not going to have traffic. If it does, it's likely not going to make you any revenue. Bot traffic costs pennies to generate.

    https://feinternational.com/ is a popular flippa alternative owned by a mod here. You won't find anything on a small budget though.

    Think about it. If someone has a website making money, why would they sell it for just $100? If it's too good to be true, it is.

    PS there's a board dedicated to this stuff http://www.blackhatworld.com/forums/site-flipping.141/

    Don't waste your money trying to buy a site for $100.
    However, if you look long enough, you will see some goldmine in flippa between $500 to $1000. This sites have traffic already and earning between $10 to $30+ per month.
    If a seller claim a site is earning $1000/M and wants to sell it for $1000 or below. Please RUN with your money.

    If its a site that is only worth 100 bucks IMO it would not be worth it. I think you would be better off building out your own site. I site that is worth 100 bucks is not really going to do anything for you.

    You can't say you want to invest money with just $100, sorry.
    What you can do, is invest $100 in your own projects, and it will requires substantial amount of work. But you're on BHW, tons of gems to catch in the threads. Surely diluted, but it's part of the hard working mindset to find them and exploit them.

    In 100$ you wont get a website with traffic already.

    Yes its definetly worth buying a site and making money but you need more than 100$. Learn to rank the sites in google first then only you will be able to make money. I will suggest you to first learn SEO and LINK BUILDING and then a get a Amazon affiliate site on a low competition keyword and rank it on google. Once you taste the success you will keep building more sites which will generate you four figures per month.

    All the best in your journey.

    One more thing which i want to tell is that whenever you decide to get yourself a amazon/adsense site, doestnt matter if you build it on your own or buy it from a provider on bhw. Make sure your you build your site around a low competition keyword. This is the most important step in this business. If you go wrong on this and pick a high comp keyword then you will need to spend thausands of dollar on pbns to rank your site.

    For $100 you will not make back your money for buying a Flippa website. The metrics are usually fake and you can never really tell if it is a securely setup scam or not. $100 can get you started in other areas, where you might get money back in return, but these areas require long hours and dedication.
