    Hey yeah okay,
    I jumped on the micro niche ban wagon earlier this year to finally get in on what everyone and their cat were saying was making money in 2012. Long story short, I have 57 micro niche websites in the pocket and a couple k in the hole. I was planning to cash in big with the help of auto seo bots and the likes, then Google came out with Penguin and changed everything. Egh, so I decided to stay the course but let them simmer in the SEO pot and gain traction the old fashioned way and hope Google was kind. Most of the sites were finally coming around growing some sprouts getting close to a 100 hits a day, then Google came out with some update this month (name? can't keep up any longer) that crushed them all like bugs. At this point I don't have the time or resources to deal with them any longer or maybe I'm just sick of Google thwarting me. Besides going through flippa, which they actually are listed on but got lost in the sea of junk (my observation, sorry), what would you folks recommend I do with them? I'd like to unload them maybe break even. At this point I'm not entirely against letting them just float away into nothingness and cutting my loses but I'm sure someone would treasure these jewels. Is there some IWouldLoveToBuyYourMicroNicheWebsites dot com out there I'm oblivious to?

    Thanks!

    Most buyers are savvy to Micro Niche sites being penalized and if they see a MNS which isn't ranking, they won't touch it with a bargepole.

    There are some unsuspecting people on DP who might give you something for them - it's free to list anyway so it might be worth making a sales thread to try to get rid of some.

    You could also pick some of the more promising ones and add more content, backlinks etc to try to get them ranking.

    You could give them away for free on DP or WF, just make it so they sign up through your hosting account or something so you can turn them into cash through an affiliate program (Hostgator $100/site), $5700 possible?? just my 2 cents
