    A small but thriving British auction community site, with an appealing and user friendly design and layout and a wide range of popular features.

    Authority Site

    Totalbids is considered an authority site by Google. It is widely considered by many observers that the Google algorithm places great importance on authority site status and occasionally, on certain keywords, Google will move a site to #1 and add special additional listings for the site. A search for ‘Online Auction’ on will show Totalbids ranked number 1 out of about 45,000,000 listings, above competitors such as QXL and ebay, and with a special index of site-categories below the listing.

    It is merely unfortunate that our other pressing projects have prevented us from capitalising on this, which is the reason for sale.

    What you get

    A fully functioning turn-key auction business
    All code, primary written in php and based on PHPProbids successful auction tools
    All site graphics, themes and style sheets
    Ownership of the Totalbids name and logo
    The domain
    The domain (purchased to allow international expansion)
    A fully featured and user friendly back-end admin system
    All site text, FAQs and supporting documents (which are very easy to edit to your requirements via the Admin system)

    Vital Statistics

    Alexa traffic rank 250,000 in the world, rank 11,000 in the UK
    40,000 unique users (visitors) per month (42,134 May 11th to June 11th)

    Feature rich user experience similar to site such as Ebay
    User ratings
    Internal messaging systems
    Image uploading facilities
    Auto-relist facilities for unsold items


    An automated charging system allowing pricing for various transactions has been completed ready for use.

    The site has been allowing listings free of charge to date, with notification that free listings may be changed to paid after July 2007. There is no obligation to charge members, as selling bidnapper software, sale of links or cross-promotion of other auction sites, sale of advertising or publishing tools are all viable models that we have simply not had time available to implement.

    The system can be easily configured to accept payments from users via PayPal, 2 Checkout, World Pay, Nochex, Ikobo or ProTx.

    A feed from Ebay called 'Featured Auctions' fills in any sections of the site that have few items listed. This was recently implemented as a test and makes a work free £150 monthly profit. This is just a test, with optimisation and targeting this could easily be increased.

    To date the site has been kept family friendly and adult-product free.
