    Hi all.

    I would like to sell my minisite I am asking £125 for it. Buyer pays Nominet fee. Payment via BACs or paypal. Please ask any questions below, or post 'SOLD' to claim.

    I set the minisite up in the summer of 2009. With only a few inbound links it quickly ranked highly and has always been on the first page for the term 'camping toilet', for a long time it was either first or second place (competing with Amazon). In the recent Google Panda update it got bumped down, it is currently about #10, check for yourself though.

    When I set it up and it ranked highly I left it alone to earn the pennies. Since then I have never done anything with it, so it has laid exactly the same for over 2 years, same content and same inbound links (which are few).

    Domain recently renewed so doesn't need renewing until April 2013.

    The website is powered by wordpress, all content is unique. I wrote all the content myself, and also did the design myself (like the background colour? I thought it was on topic ;) )

    It has always ranked very well for its keyterm as I said. Because it ranked well for it's key term I left it as-is, so it could certainly benefit from a couple of fresh quality inbounds. The ranking remained unchanged after the initial 'Google Panda' update, but the most recent Panda update moved it from about #2 or #3 (varied day-to-day) down to about #9 or #10, once again varying slightly so check for yourself. As I said the site has few inbounds and would definitely benefit from a bit of work on that.

    I've never used Googly Analytics on the website so I'm afraid the only stats I have are from the server. I've attached a couple of 'Awstats' screenshots for 2010 and 2011. The traffic is very seasonal, the summer months are obviously alot higher then winter months.

    No Amazon data is available pre-Sept 2010 because I was also using other domains on the same Tracking ID, however I sold those websites in September 2010 so the tracking ID became exclusively used on this domain.

    Other Income.
    When I first started the website it had Adsense on it, but it was generating less than £1 per month so I removed it. I've never sold any text links, advertising space or had any other revenue. So Amazon is the only true revenue ever generated on the website.

    Reason for Sale.
    I no longer want to run minisites, this is one of my very last few so it's time for me to sell it.

    Just to reiterate. I am asking £125. Buyer pays Nominet fee. Payment via BACs or paypal. Please ask any questions below, or post 'SOLD' to claim.
