    Hi Guys,

    I'm in need of a bit of money at the moment, so I'm thinking of selling my site, so I'm wondering how much I could ask for it and whether or not I am able to sell this on flippa.

    First of all, the site was established 16 months ago, with 5 pages of original content. Over the past 16 months its been on autoblog mode, adding both adult and non adult content. Its not an overtly adult site, which is why I am wondering whether I am allowed to sell this on Flippa.

    The site comes with a content locker too. At the moment its monetising approximately $140 per month through various affiliate companies. The site is getting 20,000 visitors a month with around 4000 per month unique visitors with pr1. The site also has 325 inbound links according to Google.

    The site comes with a unique turnkey money making system where I can scale up earning over time, so I would provide an ebook with it for instructions on how to use it.

    So as a money making method and a website, what sort of money could I sell this for? $2000? And with some of the posts on there adult (not all) could I still sell on flippa. This is no way hardcore porn! Just naked celebrities. This is in the entertainment niche.

    The best way to estimate the cost of a web site is to list that site for a sale. Set the Reserve price to $2k on which you wanna sell it for, if this site meets the reserve you can flip it or otherwise you will have an idea on how much your site is worth.

    Trust me there is no other way to judge the right amount for any kinda a web site until and unless you have sold similar kind of web sites before and you have client base for such sites.

    If the $140/mo revenue has been stable for a while (at least a few months), traffic sources are decent and everything else checks out then $2k (14x multiple) isn't entirely unrealistic, however it's a little bit on the high side considering the current market trends.

    As for Flippa and adult content - generally speaking, Flippa themselves aren't likely to do anything on their own initiative (especially since the content in question is "soft" and the whole site isn't about adult content), however if someone reports your listing to Flippa (a competitor, a "friend") then you can be absolutely sure that it will get taken down. Why not remove this adult content though? At least for the duration of the listing ..
