Does that website need a lot of work to maintain and what about bandwith? And why are you only asking for 6 months net revenue? I don't know anything about the value of a website, but that looks quite low to me.

Hi Bondings, thanks for your questions.

As for maintenance, there is little that is required. There is a very basic message board on the site, and I have a admin script to remove offensive posts, but other than that it just kicks along on its own. The site is driven by a MySQL database, but there is no web interface for adding new content, but it is not hard.

Unfortunately I do not have exact bandwidth stats but it is very low. I host the site on my own dedicated server with several other, much higher demanding sites on it. Much of the graphics & design of the site are optimized to help keep bandwidth low.

Lastly, about the price - although the 12 month average per month is much higher, I based the price a bit closer to the revenue of the past few months. Since I have done little with the site in terms of updates, the numbers have been dropping a bit recently. But since the site is 2.5 years old, it has had plenty of ups and downs, depending upon how much I put into promoting it.

I'll take it for $1600 after reviewing the revenue stats (I just want to see a screen shot of the google income) and traffic stats.

Hi warlock667,

I like the site, one question though - is that traffic quote for current traffic or an average of the last year?

If it's the average, can you post the current traffic as well?

Thanks!

Hello Aaron,

Yes, the traffic quoted is an average of the months June 2004 - May 2005.

The past 3 months look like:

May 05 8,492 Unique 71,402 page views
April 05 10,113 Unique 66,939 page views
March 05 16,866 Unique 91,488 page views

Definitely lower than average over the past couple months, as I have done little with it. But feel free to email me and I can send you a stats log in and you can see the ups and downs over the past few years.

Thanks for the info, that helps. Any chance you could post the last 3 months revenues as well?

I'm interested in the site but would need more recent info in order to bid on it.

Cheers!

Your last few months revenue give an average of $158.40 revenue per month. In your original post, you said $270 per month revenue. Were your previous months revenue that much greater than the last few months?
