Website flipping
« on: June 29, 2017, 11:32:38 AM »
They say there is money to be made with website flipping. Website flipping means selling your website for money. IN order to do this you register a domain, get a web hosting, set up a website, build contents, have ads and begin to make money. Then you list your website with the companies such as empire flipper or flippa. You make money when someone buys your website.
Have you tried this money making method?

I haven't but it sounds like a decent idea. Google once valued my blog at 700 dollars, so it would be fun to flip that, but I haven't posted on it for a few years. I doubt it is worth that now. I have thought about posting on it again, but I am trying to concentrate on another blog site.

I've heard about it quite a few times over the years. It is supposed to be especially popular lately, or am I wrong?

I have never really tried using this method because it doesn't sound as easy as it looks. Unless you have some sort of knowledge about setting up websites and building them up to a certain point, it might take you a long time. I imagine SEO knowledge does wonders for raising a website's value before selling it.

I mean I guess you could also buy an already existing website/blog for a low price, improve it then flip it? but it's still risky since you don't have any guarantee that you will make a profit.

There is no guarantee that someone will buy it though. What google says is one thing, but people pay what it's worth.

I guess that's what Niume were trying to do, and so was the original Elite Writers. I think it's more luck than a business venture, and people who create to sell used to be lucky, but now unless it comes with a great customer base or mailing list then I don't think it would sell for much.

It sounds a bit more like a gamble since there's really no guarantee that someone will buy your website. So there might be a risk of you spending money on something that you won't be even using. I also think that this is more of a sideline work, as it requires some time before you could sell it for a higher price. You could probably sell it immediately though if your website is good and you find the right buyer immediately.  As good and interesting as it sounds though, I don't think I would be trying it anytime soon. Too risky for me. as I don't have a lot of knowledge regarding it.

I don't understand the idea but I imagine it's similar to registering a website name that can be used later by some company. Why do you have to build a website? Doesn't registering only work on its own? It seems like a good idea if you have some certainty that the name is going to be used later. If you don't you might lose money.

There are markets where you can sell established sites as well as new sites. In the case of established website t website age and traffic are the main price determining factors. For new websites, domain value, contents, backlinks, SEO are some of the price determining factors. There is even a market for turnkey websites. However, until now I have not found any luck.

Google's price on your blog or website is just a guide, it does not follow any market trends or go along with the current market prices.

I think there are plenty of variables for the website flipping business. For example, you have to properly build a website authority. So that's another thing to watch out for. You have to spend a lot of time and resources. And selling cost needs to be properly adjusted to the efforts put on while making the site. I have found that it's not easy to setup this business due to financial reasons. I know some people who did just fine in this business. But I'd say it's not really that easy to monetize and sell at the right time. But for anyone with resources, this can be one good option.

Well, all you'd have to do is develop the PA and DA of your blog, forum, website, etc..  However, though, that's no easy task.  However, though, if you could accomplish that, then flipping and also selling out posts for guest posting would be attractive options.

Often a domain is worth more if it has traffic and SEO attached to it. You can buy a domain and squat on it and hope to sell it, but with so many other extensions most people would rather just buy a different one  such as .net because it's cheaper. SEO isn't necessarily determined by an extension.

If you sell a site that has rankings and good SEO it's worth more, because it takes time to get into search engines.
