    I have a site on DP for sale. My son made it actually and I am trying to get it sold but it wont budge. Can anyone look at my ad and the site and tell me why? Am I asking too much? Is it not "pretty" enough? Not enough content? what? Grrr..Really would appreciate any help. Its really important to know what we are doing wrong. Thank you

    You would think anything would sell at that price.

    Yea, I thought so. I've made a few changes to it and will see how it goes. Im wondering if its the theme. The Site is keyword targeted for "support for depression" which gets decent hits per day vs comp so, i dunno.....

    IMHO there is a lot wrong with the site and the keyword selection as well. I know your trying to sell it for $50 but i think putting another 30minutes into it it would sell.

    1. On site SEO is pretty bad, non existent meta tags, description, article titles lacking keywords.
    2. The header is horrendous and makes me want to kill my self, not good for support for depression. Again IMHO it should be a light color with flowers and a chick with a bright smile.
    3. No backlinks.
    4. Articles are like 200 words long, need to be longer.
    5. Suppport for depression could be easy to rank for but the number of searches for that Term are dismal according to MS. Goodluck with your sell

    Try flippa, I've found selling sites on there is much easier. Also, do the above suggestion too of course.

    Ok, working on it now. Thank you. Question. I did MS too. What do you set things at? I look for less than 50,000 comp and more than 50 ppl a day searching.

    Right, my close rate for Flippa is much higher, try it.
