    I am so confused about some of these sites sold on Flippa.

    A PR4 site with under 2000 a month in revenue and 10,000 visits a month goes for 40k

    PR5 est 2008 with 145 a month in revenue and 25, 00 visits sells for 25k

    What am I missing here?

    I have a site that is PR4, 16k pv a month and 1100 a month in revenue from all natural traffic, if I could get 10k, I would sell it in a heartbeat.

    What is the deal here?

    whats up tender,
    i was on flippa the other day looking to see about selling one of my sites.
    i was wondering the SAME thing.
    i saw a few sites that had sold for large sums on the sold page
    but that were BACK on the sales page. so im not sure how much of that
    i believe over there. now im off to make my own thread about my site...

    Depends on a lot of factors; but established sites with a long history of passive income can go for some very nice multiples.

    if ur site is making 1k/month steadily.. it would be VERY unwise to sell it for anything less than a years income..

    I'd rather keep my sites if I can't sell it for at least 16x it's monthly value...

    No site earns consistent revenue. Actually the better you prepare your listing, the higher chances you get for better price. I have sold site over $40k and you really have quality buyers on flippa.
