    This is a general question - hence the reason for posting it on here.

    If you have a website that you are sending paid traffic to and have been successfully earning via adse*** for example for the past few months - would you be able to sell this website via f***a for example?

    What are peoples thoughts on this as obviously the traffic would stop once the site had been sold on..........

    Thanks in advance

    if overall, you're making a profit (doubtful), you should market it to beginners, people who want to make money online. I had an old domain I didn't use any more, built an adsense site on it and promoted it as an "online business"

    People are doing that all the time on flippa, ripping off noobs for a couple of hundred bucks for a worthless site, but don't you think it is a fucking douche low move?

    Anyway, I think I will stay away from this dude on flippa:

    I am making a profit thanks to a method on here and was wondering whether I could start flipping the sites with the method attached as it cant get saturated. Ive always been taught not to have your eggs in one basket??

    Yeah, but unless you want to be creating new flippa accounts on a regular basis it won't last, because your account will be eventually banned.
    Offering those starter sites with the fake adsense earnings and the 3 months paid traffic, only make a few hundred dollars, and then the account gets banned when the buyer reports that income and traffic dried up instantly.
    People are doing it, but it doesn't mean it is right.
    More ethical to just create the starter sites and sell them as is

    aah ok understood! Guess I will just continue with the adsense as an additional method of earning and stick to selling starter sites like you say - (except everyone and their dog is trying to do that!) lol

    First check the earning clearly and post on Flippa.

    Yeah, but those starter sites take no time to build and you can churn them out pretty regularly, or if you want to make quality sites then build them up now to sell in a year and show 12 months adsense earnings.
    Decide which is better for you quality or quantity, but try not to sell crap as quality, it might work for a time and might make a little money but you will probably be caught out eventually.

    Most of flippa users will ask to check your traffic. I think it's a waste of time what you are trying to do. If you make money with it you better keep it for yourself but keep in mind that your account may be banned since paid traffic is not allowed.

    If you want to build a business selling on flippa it's best to offer a genuine, honest service. You'll get good feedback and make money in the long run out of trust - if you are just going to rip off newbies for just a few bucks then you wont last long on there. If you are making claims and generally lying to make money then you could end up in all sorts of trouble, not worth the hassel really
