    If it's making a nice little income, why sell?

    Wedding and credit card to pay.

    If it doesn't sell then fine, but I just wanted to clear my feet.

    p.s passed two months revenue has been in excess of £800 per month so the price is now £7k firm, which is still less than 10 months revenue.

    Just because I'm feeling generous the price is now £5,000 which represents 6.25 month's revenue at £800 per month.

    re:

    I don't understand why u keep trying to sell this.

    If the revenue is so good, keep it, build it further you will make the £5k in a matter of months.

    Not having a go at your or anything it just seems that the site design is slighlty poor, a little bit more effort and you could be on your way to 5k

    Is the old domain included with the sale? What is the split of backlinks between the old and new one?

    Old domain handed to TM owner

    New back links built to new domain since it launched.

    Still building back links (got a thread open on AD just now)

    If you've handed the old domain over then a rankings collapse is going to be happening very soon, unless they have agreed to keep the 301 in place?

    Years of experience of using 301's in niches way more competitive than the site you're selling.

    Look at it from a common sense point of view. Search engines can't continue to give you the benefit of this other site once you transfer it away and the 301 is broken. As someone else will then put a site on it also - they can't count it twice. Otherwise anyone with a site in 1st place would do exactly the same and have a new site double-counted and take the top two spots for themselves.

    Is the 301 agreed to stay in place? If not, I'm out.

    I disagree, and here's why.

    In Google and Bing webmaster tools the site address was changed. All listings have changed.

    The old URL was active from Oct to May, hardly a great length of time.

    The site did not begin to make good revenue until the new domain was being used. I think this is because I did MORE work with the new domain than the old one.

    No traffic is coming from the old domain.

    Links that were to the old domain have been changed to the new one.

    No agreement is in place so I guess you are out, I just thought it was important to offer my opinion.

    From what Khalid further went on to say, I think he is in control of the original links, he updated those to point to the new site so a 301 isn't needed. + new links have been built to the new site.

    So the real question would be, will the links stay in place? & I'm sure they would as part of a sale (Id hope so anyway).

    But you would have been right Monkey had the rankings been purely down to the old domain, a 301 would have been needed.

    I would ask to see the site Khalid but I would only be being nosey :cool:

    Yep, basically went back and edited links where I could and built new ones.

    Link from my own site would stay in place 6 months, isn't really worth much.

    Still doing work to site and back link profile today.

    Feel free to tell me to mind my own business, but you might find it better to list your site on Flippa. AdSense sites generally tend to go for anything from 8 times monthly profit upwards. Without seeing the site I can't comment too much but it sounds fairly strong, so I don't see why it wouldn't do well on there. Plus, it's only $14 or so to list (if my memory serves me correctly).

    Hope this helps!
