    Thats a very good looking site. Dmoz listed etc . Everything about it looks legit(I havent looked into the revenue claims its something I wouldnt rely on)

    You want to talk to the guy about his writers and contributors and whats the chances of keeping people on board.

    I dont have enough money to spare for this, but if I did I would definitely buy it
    You can make it back in 2 months and increase the income for sure

    Looks mostly good except the site seems to have taken a hit from Penguin/Panda updates of April 2011: http://www.semrush.com/info/www.calitreview.com?db=us

    Look at the search engine traffic graph. Note that semrush is by no means accurate, but it helps to estimate.

    Even with that being the case, I think it's a pretty solid website to use as a base and expand elsewhere. See if the guy is willing to give you guest access to his analytics or adsense if you want more information.

    Also, any idea what his reserve price is?

    Looks pretty legit. $200 a month is probably a good month though. They are monetizing with Adsense and who would click on the ads on a literary site? Maybe you could monetize it with Amazon book links.

    If the $200 a month is legit and consistent. Then I would definitely go for it, with better ad placement you could theoretically make quite a bit more. He was paying the writer before, so what are you going to do about fresh content?

    thank you very much for your help.

    Is there a way to recover properly from the penguin hit?
