Question Site appraisal anyone?

1. Your name?
Rob Aguilar
Rob@wrestlingresources.com

2. URL(s) of site? www.wrestlingresources.com

There are also a few other domain names that are not active but that I would like to sell as part of this package.

Here are a few.

mlbresources.com
nascarresources.com
nbaresources.com
nflresources.com

17 domains in all.

The whole proposed network of domains is hinged around two sites. sportsresources.com and one more which is the main brain of the network. It is still in the development stages. The whole idea behind the network is to provide news and databases of information for users. It has been developed around 'user interactivity'. WR has recently been redesigned and is far more functional and promotes much more user interaction. This new design is not yet available to the public.

The site is relies heavily on CGI to automate most tasks which reduces the need for maintenance.


3. Age of site?
12 months


4. Approximate monthly page views and/or unique visitor?
According to hitbox.com wrestlingresources.com receives 58,000 page views per month and 35,300 unique visitors. The Hitbox counter is only on the index page of the site which according to Webalizer log file analysis accounts for less than half of the sites traffic. I used to use wusage for log file analysis and during that time the page views per visitor was approximately 4. Near 250,000 month impressions can easily be expected as my last CPM sponsor was reporting hits above what wusage reported.


5. How does site generate income? How much?
Site generates income from CPA advertising and CPC (adsearches.com) advertising. Monthly income is around $400.


6. Who develops content and administers the site and how much time does it require?
Content is developed currently by myself and by reporters who post news related to wrestling.


7. What industry/audience does your site serve?
Wrestling resources serves younger web surfers. the other domains vary but are more geared towards older age groups. I think it would be safe to say that the main gender for most sites would be male.


8. Is knowledge required of the industry served by your site?
No. Internet knowledge is far more useful with this site.


9. Reason for selling?
I haven't the time nor the ambition to find the proper advertising to maximize the earning potential. Spending time with my family has taken the #1 spot in my list of priorities.


10. Will you help with the transition of the site to the new owner?
Yes.


11. Does the site have an e-zine or newsletter? Number of subscribers?
4 separate lists, total users: 1,400 confirmed subscriptions. With almost 1,000 in the main newsletter. None of these emails have ever been actively sent to as the newsletter has not yet be launched.


12. Asking price for the site?
Just trying to get a realistic appraisal for a bundle sale of wrestlingresources.com plus the additional domain names. I believe there is huge potential but since the great decline in advertising options I have lost interest in testing out dozens of sponsors to see which one will perform best. I have a family and I am going to be spending more time with them as opposed to this network..
