    There's a site I really want to buy on Flippa but I'm a first time buyer for sites of the sort. I had a friend of mine that's experienced say that the domain alone is worth the "Buy it Now" price as he said it was an Exact Match Domain and it's a high paying CPC niche. Please let me know what you think, he told me the domain was probably worth about $1,800 and with the site about $2,300 not including the revenue that the site is making. Thanks for any advice and input!

    I wasn't able to post the link but the site on Flippa is PsychologyDegree and then . Info

    How you will monetize it? If adsense then please take a look at adwords competition, if it's low don't buy.

    If you ask me your friend has not got the slightest clue what he is on about. A .info domain which is two months old is not even worth $5

    Well if you don't have a solid plan for it, I would personally would not do it. Also, EMD is not the be all and end all, especially in high competition keywords.

    If your friend reckons is such a good buy, why doesn't he buy it? How much traffic is it getting? Where does teh traffic come from ? How much of it is UN ? How many people are competing for the same word ? and most of all Why is this gguy selling it if it such a nce little money earner ?

    I don't think your friend knows what he's talking about, check the cpc yourself and remember that the cpc the google keyword tool tells you is only an estimate and not guaranteed to pay you that much cpc

    I would not recommend buying it only on the basis of EMD. BTW what is the average monthly revenue from it for the last 6-12 months?

    you could always:

    get some hosting ($10 a month)
    buy a domain (psychologydegreeinformation.com) ($10/year)
    install wordpress (free)
    write 8 articles (4 hours of work for 8 "high quality" articles)
    buy 8 photos off istock photo ($20)
    buy 10 fiverr gigs for backlinking ($50)

    and I'd argue you'd be better off, before even comparing the costs associated with each progject...

    do that 4 times over, and for $300 and about 30 hours of work you've got a wayyyyyy better project in place.......

    personally I'm seeing that a .com with a generic word attached to it is seen as higher "quality" in the SERPs than a .info....

    He claims in his add it is seo optimized. I do not know what his idea of seo optimized is but I would call no h tags and no alt tags very not optimized. Just a blatant lie, probably like the traffic stats and what it makes. the only person who would buy this site is someone who had no clue about anything. I could throw that site together in about 10 minutes.

    Sounds to me like this is your auction and you are trying to persuade one of US to buy it. No?

    200,000 exact searches my ass! I only see 6,600 EXACT searches using Google Keyword Tool and I say that the seller is a big time scammer. No professional would do a mistake like that by accident.

    How can it be price worthy? ask your friend. its alexa is simply out of limit, no Google PR, only 8 indexed pages. i think you can get 1000 times better site in this budget.

    I think it's pretty funny the first screenshot is the top of the revenue page but when the scroll is made and a second screen shot is taken (which took 30 mins for some strange reason) suddenly the Microsoft paint program is open.

    Ummmm - I wonder why he'd need to open paint to take screenshots? We all know why.

    The guy is linked to a bunch of bad selling ids and NO DOUBT the person that created this stupid thread. He's probably writing a WSO how to promote your Flippa listings on BHW.

    Another newbie spammer wasting everyone's time. From now on please look at the signup date and post count before wasting everyone's time. This joker is the seller of that listing IMO.
