    1 - Website 4 years old.

    Domain Registered on: 22-Mar-2004 and has been ranked in Google ever since.

    We built this site from the ground up so it is a bespoke design and not a script.

    It has a student user profile section with 'Admin check' before users photos are posted. (lots of other features)

    It also has a custom built CMS for the articles section (left hand menu on site)

    Articles / News always ranks very well. For example:

    An article entitled "Credit Cards Explained' ranks 1st
    e.g : credit cards explained - Google Search

    Site ranks 1st place for student union and 3rd for Student Unions

    e.g : student union - Google Search

    We started the site ad free on purpose and have never launched monetization properly. No stats are available for banners or ads.

    Site currently averages 5000 visitors per month.

    Huge scope for improvement and onsite and offsite SEO.

    Offers - high 4 figures / low 5 figures...

    Kind Regards

    Thank you for the great response – Its taken a while to go through them…
    I have answered numerous questions and included all of the answers here:

    Number of members currently registered (Email opt-in confirmed and profile filled in): 1635

    Males: 48.5%
    Females: 51.5%

    When user signs up they answer “How did you find this site?”
    The following stats where collected:

    Google 203
    Yahoo 31
    MSN Search 14
    Other Search Engine 18
    Student Union Event 95
    Email invitation 32
    From a friend 172
    Word of mouth 100
    Link on another site 41
    Online Advert/Banner 13
    Other 110

    An example of a profile is found here:
    Hannahbanana1uk | Hannah Jayne's Student Union Profile

    When a user signs up they fill in lots of info (Sex, Age, About Me, Favorite food, music, bars, films, places, hobbies, interests). The site has a built in mailer so that Admin can email members based on their interests or if they are male/female. You can also send emails to all members that attend a certain Uni or Subject of Degree/Course.

    There are NO Ad or revenue stats/details available that I can give currently.
    (This is due to an old Google Adsense account that we no longer use. We can start collecting rev stats but the sale isn’t based just on this).

    Adverts are controlled in Admin and can be changed over in seconds
