Default for sale: HotLyrics.net

I'm selling my international lyrics site: HotLyrics.net (http://www.hotlyrics.net). It's been around some 2 years now and receiving about 10.000 visitors a day, from all over the world. The site is totally database driven and there are a lot of interactive features which keep people coming back to HotLyrics.net.

Reason for me to sell this site: Is that I don't have a lot of time to invest into this site, and that someone else might be a lot better of with it then me.

My name: Thomas de Leeuw
URL of the site: http://www.hotlyrics.net
Age of site: +/- 2 years
Traffic statistics: 10.000 page views/day
Alexa rating: 182,397 dropped to 152,033
Overture results for "hot lyrics": 896,000
Overture results for "hotlyrics.net": 7,900
Asking price: place bid
Profits:

Currently I'm not making a lot of money with the sponsor income. I only have
exploited the advertising space in such a way for 1 pop-under, and 486*60
banner.

From my pop-under sponsor I'm receiving about $1.50 a
day, equals aproximatly 46 dollars a month.

As for the banner: I'm getting a lot of click throughs and with the current sponsor I'm receiving about $2 dollars a day, equals aproximatly 61 dollars a month.

Extra information:

Currently I have 8426 lyrics, and visitors can add the lyrics themselves
through the submit section. After submitting I can check the lyrics in an
admin part. In the admin part I have acces to easily update news, update
polls, answer guestbook entries, check corrected lyrics and send out to a mailinglist consisting of 821 e-mail adresses (only had the mailinglist sign up form for a month or so of time then took it offline).

My contact information:
email: thomasdeleeuw@quicknet.nl
msn: thomasdeleeuw@msn.com

If you need any more information, tell me, and I'll do my very best to provide you with it!

current bid: $1000 n/a see bottom post
as the bids are coming through multiple ways I will keep the current bidding amount up to date in this post

i haven't set an exact date
as long as the bidding is active I will wait till the bidding settles down, and I can do business with the buyer

A date could be nice, bidding may never settle down - Someone could stumble across it, like it, and up the bid by $5.

Best of luck with your sale.

If you are nervous about the "open" nature of "bidding" (I"m not and its fine) in this case an easy solution is to qualify your offer with an expire date.

This really helps both parites.

For example:

My offer is xxxx US dollars which expires at 12:01AM on 4/23/03 (PST GMT -8 - Location of Funky Ducky, Arizona, USA) and is subject to the following:

Or similar words. This procedure has been used in Real Estate since the invention of dirt

that's a good idea Steve_S

on anohter matter: my alexa rating.. I'm getting a lot of questions about my low alexa rating eventhough I have a lot of traffic
when I go look at my alexa rating it seems that the stats are all wrong, a lot of months have not been counted, and there's a lot of non availables

I have no idea what the problem is that's forming this miscalculated stats at alexa. . could it have anything to do with my current hosting?

Alexa ratings have been jumping all over now - My site's rank changed by -15,000, and my traffic actually had increased. THey have a new way of measuring the rank now, I believe.

Initially you said it 10000 uniques per day. Tahn it was 10000 page views per day. Can you please provide me with a link to the stats for the last few months?

How much bandwidth /Space it requires for hosting?

i saw the guys stats. The pageviews get confusing because stats show something and he tells you something else. He does not know how many uniques tho and also he only shows one months stats when other months say 0.

Investigate thoroughly.
