    I'm seeing a site on flippa that makes $160-500 a year, its supposedly a hands off and no work required. Like a typo site, seller seems legit and it makes sense. Theres 3 hrs left on the listing and going for cheap. what do you think? https://flippa.com/7653089-microsfothup-com

    I would not. Best case scenario it gets taken down in a couple of months because of trademark/copyright issues. Worst case scenario, the site has no traffic, which means no revenue

    Let me add this: Do you really think google would approve adsense on a similar site? I doubt it.

    I mean, I've spent $35 on worse things.

    But honestly it says "$161-$500" and all I see for profit is $164 for 2016 and $500 something for 2015. That doesn't look very good. How much is it going to cost you to host 3 websites for a year?

    Hey guys thanks for your feedback. The site is 2 years old tho with 2 years of history, if it would get a trademark issue, it would have gotten one long ago?

    Right! Hosting is so cheap these days, $5 a month so $60 a year
    Edit: actually it wouldn't cost me anything because I already have hosting

    Is it your site OP or are you just trolling?

    Nope no and no way. A max of $500 a year ($41 a month) you have got your work cut out for you that's for sure. Or buy a ton of these websites then you will be in the money lol
