For his own portfolio but also to improve and sell them again.
I was wondering if any of you guys are doing something similar. I want to increase my income/month and have enough budget to buy some stuff but haven’t done this before.
Since I am new I was wondering to your experience with this, things to watch out for. I have run some websites before (I created them myself). I have an ok knowledge about seo but I don’t consider myself an expert or anything. I hate linkbuilding and stuff.
I just looked on a Dutch site where they sell their websites. Some with url I came across something interesting but I might can even replicate it and not buy haha. Anyway looking for some stories you have about buying websites.
Maybe some interesting threads to reads?
My idea is to combine paid traffic (ppv – ppc) with these websites to increase my monthly profits. Also hire text writers for content for seo traffic (depending on the niche if I think I can rank for it or not).

But the downside is offcourse google, because they can change a 2k/month website into a 0/month website with 1 update.
I saw some cool sites but they even didn’t rank that good but I think they can be very profitable. I think I will test it myself building it and sending some paid traffic to it.

Yeah, I hear you. If the price is right and you see some value in it, it might be a good deal. I don’t have much experience in that as far as what to look for, etc. I know people who sell sites do stuff to jack up their stats (views, rank, etc.) so just be careful.

I can’t really say anything that has not been said before.
Good places for info
It boils down to doing your homework on if it’s better to buy into the niche or start your own site. There are 100’s of small things to look into. The above links will cover just about all the things you need to know.
1. Treat the website as it’s own business separate from all other websites. This give you true ROI
2. Don’t get emotional. It does not matter if you let a deal slip through your hands. There are always more to come
3. Do your own diligence on the site. Expect each seller to be attempting to rip you off and that they are lying to you.
4. Never purchase a site if you can’t get the seller on the phone and talk live.
5. Don’t do a deal if there is not an Non compete clause for at least 3 years.

I have a bunch of financial goals mapped out, and "buying sites to improvise on then flip" is likely one that’s going to take place in a couple months’ time.
Key is to get a site that’s already making money or already ranking, so all you need to do is to clean up the SEO, then start an Adwords or Facebook campaign and ramp up the volume.
Then decide if you want to keep it or flip the whole business (together with the campaigns).
That’s the way I intend to do it anyway.

Spot on with this statement. I’ve been looking for a number of years for that perfect something. You see some really good sites on Flippa here and there but there are way better higher valued websites for sale on quietlightbrokerage DOT com. I recommend signing up for their newsletter just to see what is out there. These are higher value websites but generally small businesses that have been around for a number of years with an owner ready to move on or retire. Every once in a way you see a site listed for under 50K but generally it’s in the 100K -2Mil range.
When it comes to rankings you have to ensure it’s not just for 1 or 2 big keywords. You want a nice steady flow from all over. If the company says they have never done PPC you should press the issue because almost all of these business have at some point and time.
