I have created a site a year ago and I wanna sell it for maybe $500, but how can I do it when its only PR2 and has about 15 articles on it?
You can sell it easily for $500, but in what niche is this site?
Are you sure you want to delete this post?
15 articles? I'd sell it for $50 if it's only 15 articles and it's a PR2.
ivan, its a forex site. It contains forex market tutorials and etc..
ucas, why only buy it for $50?
I wonder what are some of the reason why some will buy it for $50 and some might buy it for more.
I agree with ivan, I don't think someone will pay more then 50-70 bucks for that site.
@ SEO GUY It's not that easy to increase the worth of the site from 50$ to 500$..the one who'll buy your site will be interested in knowing that how much traffic you are getting daily on your site + how much money your site is earning monthly.
If you'll say that you have only 15 articles o your site..He'll just pay 15$ for that not more the that.!
I have no idea with the value of a website but you are right that the 15 articles will not fetch a good price because content is king and there should be a substantial amount of content before a site can get a good ranking in the search engines. What I mean is to increase the number of contents first so that the valuation will go upwards before you put the site on the selling board.
Before you try to sell your site, you need to get more pages right away, including articles and videos. Just make sure none of the content is PLR or copied from other sites. Then you need to make sure all those pages are backlinked from a network of Web 2.0 sites and properly indexed. At the same time, tweak on page ad placement to increase ad revenue so you will have proof of the site's profitability. Sell ad space through buysellads or SEOClerks.com. When you offer the site for sell, you will be giving real value and the site might actually be worth several hundred dollars.
I have tried to flip a website on flippa and based on my experience I can say you will be able to sell a website only when your website is generating traffic and revenue. If you do not make money from your website, there will be no buyer for your website.
if the site has real PR2 rank and you are selling for $50 i htink you ares selling it too cheap.
Create qality contant and do seo .. and increase PR .. and then sell with high traffic for 500 $ ...
Thats good idea
Sometimes sites also sell based on "potential", but it's easier to sell based on prior revenue
DO you want this site sold out
Ya right pr 2 takes lots of efforts more then 50$
if you have good traffic blog then it easy to flip
I'll say create and post more meaningful contents on it. Optimise it for search engines and look into selling it on auction sites like flippa
You will be able to sell only the sites with economic value. For instance, your site should be generating traffic and making money. Your site should have enough original contents. Your site should have keyword rich domain or brandable domain.
I agree with what you said about economic value. Even if the site is getting a good number of traffic but if the contents are so minimal then I guess potential buyers will not be totally sold out. You may need to add more pages and contents before you can sell it for your desired amount. Just take note that selling a website is not like selling merchandise because a website is lasting and not just an item in the market.
I once sold a website through flippa. In order to sell this website, I had to list an auction, and the fee
was really high. The money that I received after the deduction of selling fees was so little that decided not to try selling my website until it gets a high price. MY website had a reasonable quantity of original articles and was earning moderate traffic. The only problem with the site was site was not generating revenue. The point is if your website is not earning, you might be able to sell, but you will not ben able to sell for a high price.
