    I want to get into the site flipping game, and I have done a lot of researching and looking around and I can't come to a clear conclusion about what types of websites sell better than others.

    For example does a product niche site such as baby strollers making $60 a month sell better than a lose weight site making $60?

    Or does it even matter as long as your site is making money?

    Any help would be greatly appreciated:)

    Most sites sell depending on many factors. For instance, a digital product niche site sells better because the buyer does not need to maintain the site. For instance, in the case of a membership site, the buyer needs to maintain the site with fresh services so that the members would not cancel their subscription. What also makes a site sell better is if it is currently making money.

    As ScrapeBoss said, there are a lot of factors to consider when it comes to selling a website. If the site is turning over a monthly profit it really doesn't matter very much what niche it is. In fact a more obscure niche that's making steady money can be more desirable to some people (especially if it receives quality organic traffic), because it would be easier to maintain the ranking than it would be in a competitive niche.

    Sites that can sell for a decent profit margin without any income, backlinks or ranking tend to offer services that are in demand and offer the site owner a good profit margin (usually the service is outsourced and the work cost is deducted from the service sale price).

    Good Luck!

    If a site is making money, there will always be interest regardless of the niche.

    I still see lots of autoblog being sold without traffic and earning.

    So what is happening to the google slap? How does that affecting autoblog

    Can someone give me an idea of what a site could be worth? I have a diet website generating a solid $1,000 per month and growing. It is traditional html and built without autoblogging. Any idea what it would be worth?

    Amount of traffic + profit + whether new owner will be able
    to replicate the profits.

    it depends on how long the site has been making that money for, if its only been making $1000 for the last month, then its unlikely to sell for more than 10 months profit
