    Hey roomies,

    My Apologies @ My Mistake - I should have asked
    "how much would someone buy it for?"

    I mean that in the sense
    of your "average newbie marketer" that sees a "ready made opportunity?"


    For me my purpose is different. This is my "maiden voyage" into site flipping .......

    I bought the blog for very cheap - under 10 bucks
    (I realize at this point it isn't wiorth much at all)

    It's brand new - no advertising, no backlinks, no promo of any kind
    Everything is a feed of existing articles as it has an rss feed. It isn't indexed.
    I've never dealt in autoblogs ever before, and I'm trying to understand, how I can
    profit, without much work. I realize it would be a small profit - but it's a learning
    ground more than anything for me...

    If it doesn't seem to want to get indexed, I assume because it has no unique content,
    only feeds - would mixing in some "original articles," cause it to get indexed?

    If I may ask - what is the maximum someone would pay for these type of sites ?

    My reason for buying it - is from a flipping perspective - I wanted to see how professional
    autoblog site builders put them together, and how they worked their plugins and widgets

    I'll make sites that command more money - with a history and visitors and analytics
    at a later time - but I need to learn the hard way and the "nut and bolts" of the
    selling/flipping game first - by trying to sell the "the bottom of the barrel."

    Because the one they bought is already making an income and
    would make a return on their investment.
    why else would you buy one?
