Profitable Kindle Covers and Cases reviews site. Great site for generating passive income, especially during the holidays.
Also included is a Kindle forum site for discussion with REAL forum posters.
Also included is 1 year free hosting on my server to the winner (normally $120 per year)
The site ranks well for many different keywords. It has 105 posts with descriptions, images, reviews and some comments that all rank in Google.
In December 2010 the site was bringing in over 9K unique visits per month then the traffic dropped to over 5K in January 2011(after holiday crash). Then the first Google Panda Update hit and traffic started to drop. The site still ha consistent traffic and with the latest Panda Update 2.2, there has been some recovery. I had let the site sit for a while and when the new panda update took effect I had my VA start making new backlinks and traffic started to increase steadily and Amazon income as well as Adsense income has started to increase steadily.
>>>>> I am also throwing in this forum and domain: http://www.ereaderforum.net <<<<<
The ereaderforum.net forum is a site that goes hand in hand with this site, a great way to bring in more traffic and revenue.
BTW the site www.ebookcoversandcases.com used to be called www.kindlecoversandcases.com but due to the word "Kindle" in the url, Amazon emailed me and forced me to give up the url and so it was changed to the current url of www.ebookcoversandcases.com.
The same is true for the www.ereaderforum.net it used to be www.thekindleforum.com, until Amazon intervened. Even after doing a 301 redirect and moving the sites, it still brings in daily traffic and income.
The new domain www.ebookcoversandcases.com was registered on 2/17/2011, which is why Flippa says the date is incorrect on establishmment. The old domain was registered and establish in 2/2010.
These sites are a great for someone who can do the Amazon Associates program and someone who wants to take some time to build more backlinks and promote it.
Why I am Selling it...
The reason I am getting rid of it? California Gov. Jerry Brown and the Nexus Tax law that took effect June 30th. I live in California and since the new law took effect I have been kicked from the Amazon Associates program and can no longer collect commissions on this site since it is primarily an Amazon Associates driven site.
I've looks at my alternatives, Barnes and Noble, Borders, and sadly nothing compares to the Amazon Associates program and the incredible selection of inventory Amazon carries. There is no way I can benefit from this site at this time and rather than waste more time trying to recover, I'd rather sell it.
Success fee is split between winner and seller.

I stopped using Google Analytics for a time as I was worried Google was looking to hard at my site then I found out Panda was the issue. I started using Google Analytics again and will post what I have for that data here as well.
Traffic is currently growing again due to the New Panda 2.2 update and my VA started building about 10 backlinks per week for the past month.
There is still a significant amount of traffic driving sales at Amazon and bringing in Adsense clicks.
