    I was interested in jumping steps (probably a terrible idea) and buying a website off Flippa that is already made, ranked and generating cash from adsense. What are your guys take on this if you were back to square one? What are the dangers to look out for when doing this? Thanks.

    Jumping steps by buying a website is not a terrible idea. You just need to find the right website to buy and do your best not to ruin it after you buy it.

    How about losing the ranking of the website you just bought if no SEO is done to it? Buying a ready website is not a bad idea, It cost you 10% more then the revenue generated. If the website is earning 100$/Month, then you need to buy it for 1000$ or even more. Still there is no guarantee that the website ranking would be stable.

    So better idea is buy a domain, host it and start doing SEO or PPC.

    For creating website, i would suggest JUST GET YOUR HAND TO WORK, it is very easy, once you start, you will learn.

    For SEO, i would highly reccomend this: http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackh...ptimization-bootcamp-fundamentals-course.html

    Wish ya success

    Sweeet let me know if you find their names or know anyone who can mentor me through this stuff. I see all the steps you guys list but don't know how to execute the steps physically. Ill definitely check that black hat SEO course out right now.

    Don't do this if you're a noob. You can thank me later. Instead start a new site of your own.

    There are so many scammers on flippa you need to look at a website you can work on after you buy it and you need to do a lot of research about a website there backlinks there past records before you buy it .

    In what order would you guys say i should this stuff in? I'd like to know before i go through this SEO course. Also i am sure there is a software thread on here just a matter of finding it. Any must haves you recommend? Also currently taking this newbie course on youtube i think it has 9 videos or so. Let me know if anyone needs that.

    You know, I haven't created a site. Platforms? Didn't realize. That's a great idea. I have learned a bunch of CSS and some PHP. I guess my problem is I've never used a platform before. Would be awesome to make a website. Thanks.

    Just grab a Wordpress and set up a beautiful site in 30 minutes, i have decent knowledge in HTML/CSS, but still, why bother?
