    So I just signed up with GoDaddy.com & after I type this will sign up with Flippa.com I looking to buy and sell domain names to start off with. On Flippa I see you can bu established websites & starter websites, what I want to know when you buy those beyond turning around and selling it, is their other ways to make money from those sites?

    Also if I do buy a established website do I need to change the content on the site or anything else on the site? Any help would be much appreciated, thank you.

    I would recommend you just starting up your own website! This way not only you learn but you can get success from it too.

    Buying a already made website, and not knowing what to do will just waste your money.

    If you are looking to sell websites on Flippa remember that they consider the age of the domain the website is on to be the date when you registered it not the original website date so you will be selling new websites as far as the Flippa listings are concerned.

    When I buy a established website do I have to do anything to it beyond selling it? Also with established websites are their other ways to make money with it like adclicks? PS how do I follow you?

    I would actually advise against the rest! If you only want to flip, then go for domains. Most site buyers expect an aged site with some decent traffic! Building sites is a very different ball game and much more difficult than domain flipping

    If the sites you purchase are in popular niches like health, fitness, dating then you can monetize them with CPA or Adsense.

    Hello. i try to help you & answer your questions :)
    i have 4+ years experience in "Proxy Websites", learned lots of things, so here is my strategy to Earn from website & then selling it for Big Money.

    1- Always Buy a Premium domain, bcz its value will increase with time automatically even if i dont create website with this domain, & if you create a website then it will give you even more Money after few years/ month, bcz you can sell it as 'Established Website' with google rank, backlinks etc. so i bought Proxy.Deals or Proxy.tips bcz of future value of domain, instead of something proxy367.com that will not have any value.

    2- So after purchasing Premium domain, i create website and do some work & advertising to rank it in search engines & to get traffic. easy to remember domains will get more direct traffic. then i start earning money with 'Affiliate Marketing' & adsense. Affiliate Marketing is better, it gives lots of money.

    3- after earning money from website for few month or years, its time to put it on Flippa for sale :) Age of domain matters, so here finally you can get big money.
    not a bad strategy, this way i made money from Proxy.cm & then i sell it in $8000 on Flippa.
    Then purchased more Premium domain & started working.

    I highly recommend you to study a bit the Flippa methods. They could bring you a lot of money but they could also rip you off.

    Well, the business of buying and selling websites is good if you know what you are doing. The challenge with Flippa is that sometimes they have very crappy sites listed, many times some people have bought a site that burnt later on so do your due diligence in investigating what you are buying. The problem mainly is that the Flippa editors don't investigate sites listed on them, so you could buy something blindly if you have no idea how to investigate stuff like quality of backlinks, business model, quality of website development, etc. A better alternative to Flippa if you wanna be safe is Empire Flippers... the websites listed there are well checked by the editors so it's safe for your investment. Cheers!

    Do you want to start buying and selling domain names or start buying and selling websites? Domain names and websites are completely different thing. If you are thinking of buying websites then please don't buy from any one, until and unless you know something about it. And better if you start your own. To start your own you will need to learn a SEO. I think this is the best place to learn about it as you have lots of posts about SEO.
