    So I've been working on some niche blogs lately. I set them up in 1-2 days. Then I post 1-4 articles / day. I then send traffic via my 20,000,000 social media reach and bring the site 5-10k uniques per day solely off of social media traffic. What I am wondering is if there is possible money here on flippa. Could I spend a few months sending a blog 50k+ uniques /month, and then flip it super overpriced because of it's traffic. Would this work, would I get banned off of flippa? Just some feedback would be appreciated.

    Will you get banned on Flippa? It depends on how long it takes the moderators to catch you, I guess.

    Yes, there are people selling sites like this on Flippa. No, they (generally) don't get away with it for very long.

    Your plan is to artificially inflate traffic to a site and then try to sell that site off as if the traffic (and/or revenue) would continue after purchase? Whiles some noob buyers may fall for that you're not building much of a business and it's definitely not sustainable.

    Now - if you wanted to include your social media network with the sale to keep that traffic sustainable, I don't see anything wrong with that necessarily - just be upfront about the traffic, where it comes from, and what it takes to maintain.

    What I was wondering, the traffic would be 100% real and authentic, along with the earnings. Once it was sold though, the traffic from my social media would stop and it wouldn't get nearly as many views. Is this 'acceptable' to do, could it be profitable?
