    Have a site where I sell real American USA Facebook Likes, Twitter Followers, Instagram Followers, etc. Just wondering if I make this investment and get a good months income will I really have people wanting to my buy site for 3x monthly income?

    The problem is what really counts? Most of my income has been coming from CL ads, not natural organic traffic. It seems a bit like cheating selling a site for 3x monthly income and people expecting that the customers would just come to them, when most of my income is from actively seeking clients. If you bought the site and did not actively put ads out you wouldn't be making anything off search traffic.

    Thanks for the help. Also where is the best place to sell a site? Once I'm getting 10-15k a month I plan on selling the site. Can I really get 3x my monthly income?

    Yes you can get 3X month income. But be clear in listing that your traffic isn't SE Traffic, tell buyer how you get clients and also tell on listing how much time takes to gets traffic to that site. Also if you need invest cash to traffic, you should also tell that.

    Be smart and helpful seller dont trick or scam anyone.

    Are you talking about me asking about Flippa? Because I here a lot of bad stuff about Flippa and I was wondering if there is a better place. If you're talking about selling for 3x I was just wondering if CL traffic counted since most clients I have to actively search for instead of them finding me.

    Why not just explain where the traffic is coming from? There's nothing wrong with being transparent about what you're up to. In fact, by clearly laying out the work required and maintenance to keep the clients coming in, you'll end up with a buyer that knows what they're getting into and will (possibly) give you even more than 3X for the site.

    Keep this in mind - AirBnB build a 10-BILLION dollar business by siphoning off Craigslist traffic to drive users...and they're not doing too badly.

    Here is a question: Why do you want to sell a site making 10-15k a month for 3x it's monthly income?

    Hire a person or two to run the site for you, while you manage and keep track everything is running smoothly. You then are doing less work, got a nice income, and will end up making a lot more than if you sold the site.

    There is some very effective, with a slight learning curve, software to post on CL out there. If I were going to be in that arena, and I was not going to outsource the ad posting, I would be looking there... you may want to also and you could be "CLADg" you did.
