Why am I Selling?: I like to build sites, I have 10 more I am working on now, building their SEO rankings to one day sell them and build more. I keep a few of my bigger sites, but I am not interested in maintaining dozens of sites.

Full Site Details:

This is a CNA (Certified Nursing Assistant) Training Information site that I have personally built from the ground up.

It has 10 pages of unique (written by a retired CNA) content posted on the site.

The site is built on wordpress with a Premium Theme from StudioPress.

I built this site back in November 09 and have been working on its SEO rankings since.

As you can see by the revenue info below, it started earning small amounts as the traffic grew from nothing, then in June it hit number 1 in google SERPS for its 2 main keyword Phrases.

The next month (July) one of its main rankings dropped back to 3rd position for about a week, but 1 more round of promotion and it was back to number 1.

This month (August) the other main keyword dropped back to 2nd position, but again 1 more round of promotion and it was back to number 1.

So from now on, with a little ongoing maintenance it should hold its 2 number 1 rankings and should generate $3500 to $4k a month in Adsense revenue.

I have a full maintenance plan that can be fully outsourced in only a few mins a month, that will be given to the successful bidder.

I also have a solid plan on how to continue building the rankings and ultimately double the revenue to $80 to $100k per year. Which will also be given to the new owner.

Site Promotion Details:

After the site was built, I put in a substantial amount of effort in traditional (white hat) SEO methods to get the site ranked. Article Marketing, Directory Submissions, Social Bookmarks, Forum, Web 2.0 & blog marketing etc.

The initial cost of promotion was approx $1,100.

In July & August some of the rankings dropped a few places, (which is normal for a new site at number 1) So I did 2 more rounds of articles and some link building and the sites quickly jumped back to their number 1 position.

The total cost for this was approx $500 each time.

So total outlay on the site has been around $2,200

I expect the site to keep its number 1 rankings for a while now, with minimal effort to keep them up there. But of course anyone who knows SEO knows there is always the possibility of being knocked off the top spot, so I suggest the new owner continue the promotion plan that I have developed to secure the current rankings as well as increase traffic through other related keywords. (full details will be given to the new owner)

Ongoing Promotion plan will cost approx $250 per month to outsource it, or free if you do the work yourself. (I will give you my training manual to help with this)

The Winning Bidder Will Receive Ownership of:

  • Domain name www.YourCNATrainingGuide.com and all content posted on the domain.
  • Domain is currently registered with Dynadot.com but can be transferred to any domain registrar you want.
  • My own personal ongoing maintenance & promotion plan for the site to make sure you keep the number 1 rankings and even increase your revenue if you choose to.
  • My own 21 Step Guide to how I build my sites and rankings. (This is currently being sold for 5k in a seminar format, you just get the manual as a bonus and to make sure you fully understand how I have built the site and its rankings)

May 10:               $2017.36 AUD   $1822.61 USD
June 10:              $4264.89 AUD   $3853.18 USD
July 10:               $3600.60 AUD   $3252.34 USD
August 10:           $921.58 AUD     $832.44 USD (10 days)

I expect this site to continue generating $3500 to $4500 Revenue Per Month.

The site hit number 1 SERPS Rankings at the end of May, so June, July revenues are the true indication of what to expect from this site each month. (That's if you choose not to do any additional promotion)

Hi Smoke, I am happy to see what the market sets the price at. I have been changing my mind back and forth for a few weeks now trying to decide if I should put it up for Auction, or just bank the 4k every month. Either way it doesn't bother me. But I am interested to see what its worth at Auction.

Brock, it seems like it will not stay long on the number 1 spot. Not that I own Google.com but given they are taking hardcore action on comment links. Your site link profile is full flow comment backlinks can you clarify that?

Hi Azi,

The site has been built with all kinds of links, including over 250 quality articles submitted to the top article directories, and redistributed out to hundreds of other sites, as well as a few press releases, reviews, in content blog posts and yes blog comments and forum links.
For some reason yahoo site explorer seems to show the comment links more so than the others, (since they only show 1000 links max).
Of course as anyone with with SEO experience knows, you can never be sure about any SEO placement, but I have other sites that have been ranking for 2 to 3 years, so I believe the link diversity as well as the high click through rates on the serps listings should be fine for this site to keep its rankings with the maintainence plan that I have.

1) are your articles auto or you have to organically search for these? will you show where you get your feeds?

2) what is the work that is required regularly - article submissions, blog posts etc? will you show the ropes on handover?

3) why do you allow blatant spamming ads in your comments when you know that after some time it will destroy the value of your site?

4) can you PM me your reserve please thanks

1: All the articles I use are written uniquely for me. There is nothing automated about it. So there are no feeds to share. I will however share my article writers with the winner.
2: Yes, to maintain the current rankings and increase revenues, I would suggest continuing with the article submissions and link building strategies. I will reveal everything to the winner.
3: lol, thanks for that, I had never seen them before. Just another illustration of why I have too many sites to manage properly. They have now been deleted.
4: Will do.

your Adsense CTR is 13% while eCPM is whooping 258$ ! do u think adsense will ban u ?

brhamo ( | $51.9K )
Sun, 15 Aug 2010 23:35:08 AEST

I don't see any reason they would. I have run dozens of sites over the years. Some have eCPMs of a few hundred, while others are under $20. It all just depends on the niche and how well you target your traffic. Plus this one in particular has been running with those figures for 7 months, so I don't foresee any problems with it.
If anything it's a sign we are giving people exactly what they are looking for.

Hi guys,
The reserve has now been met / lowered, so the site will sell.
In the interest of making sure the transfer goes smoothly, can anyone who is looking to place a bid please read through the Terms of Sale & Transfer attachment before placing their bid.

Your terms of sale/transfer pretty much take the wind out the main benefit of escrow for a buyer.
You are asking the buyer to fully release the funds and close out the transaction with escrow.com *before* you transfer the domain. Given that arrangement, I'm not clear on why anyone would bother with the escrow service. That's the whole point of escrow :)
So, yeah, buyers should read that Terms of Sale/Transfer document....Twice :)

I agree, the whole point of using escrow.com is to assure the transaction is done in a way to protect both parties. I sold a business through a broker and once the domain name was transfered and confirmed, escrow.com released the funds to the seller.

Wed, 18 Aug 2010 17:44:24 AEST

Hey guys, Yeah, point taken. I am happy to work out payment / transfer details. The main reason I added that was because I just recently heard of some instances that illustrate that escrow is not 100% safe for the seller. An unscrupulous buyer can put money into escrow, then get the whole site transferred over to him. Then inside the 3 day domain transfer window request a refund from escrow, which they grant because according to the whois the domain hasn't been transferred. The end result is the unscrupulous buyer keeps all his money and steals the site. And the seller was left with nothing.
So, as I said, I am happy to work something out. But I will not be giving up ownership of the site, until I am 100% certain I will be paid. I am sure you understand that. Same as anything you buy on ebay, or anywhere else. You send money first, then you get all the goods sent. I am happy to do a half half deal or whatever. But I won't be leaving myself open to be ripped off.

BTW, I am happy to be proven wrong on this. I am looking into the escrow domain name services. All I really want to do is make sure the transaction happens and is secure for all involved.

brhamo You are right, I also feel this issue with escrow.com that both parties not safe, bcz they verify ownership with whois info, and who is can be change.
System should work like this, escrow.com get money from buyer and domain from you, then escrow.com transfer domain to buyer and give money to you. But unfortunately its not work like this.
There are some domain escrow service work good. Like http://www.moniker.com/aftermarket/domain-escrow.jsp
They escrow from both parties, they escrow domain from you and escrow money from buyer.

Hope it help you to sell this domain and business :)
