    So I have a few simple sites with exact match domains, perfect on-page SEO, good site structure, etc. Basically everything is in place except for off-site SEO, meaning that if I built a few backlinks, I'm positive they'd rank at #1 for their keywords. I did the research on the competing sites and there's not a doubt in my mind about that.

    Here's the thing, though. All the sites relate to an offline niche. ""New York mortgage brokers" and "Memphis divorce laywers", for example. Adwords indicates "high competition" with full or near-full competition bars, but the search volumes are low for the keywords.

    I originally intended to build a few of these sites, get them ranked, then monetize them offline to whoever might interested in a website at #1 on google for a given keyword. Now, I need some quick cash.

    Could I sell a site like that on WF, digitalpoint, or flippa? How much might a site like that be worth if I did?

    Assuming I wanted to just sell the site and let the buyer monetize it however they want, what would be a fair price? Fifty bucks? $200?

    Really what they'd be paying for is the domain name, the on-page SEO, content, and the knowledge that they're in a niche they can dominate. The hard part, basically, if you don't mind paying for getting some backlinks, waiting for a page to rank, and monetizing.

    If you have any questions just ask.

    Sounds tough. Most of that competition is probably from competing websites owned by firms. Perhaps you could try to contact these firms that are competing for the ads and see if they want to buy the sites off you, so they can keep the content (im assuming it's a content site) and add links to their own sites?

    Just an idea
