One of the largest websites in the world with a link profile that is unreplicable. You simply couldn't buy this link profile.  I suspect that when sold this will be the biggest sale in Flippa history.

[When applying for access/signing NDA please tell me about yourself to verify ability to purchase seriously. Reserve is 999,999.  Thanks for your understanding. Revenue: I'm not claiming any as obviously this listing isn't about the worth of that. However; it is substantial & there are ads that have run for years and years and years.  There is NO text link selling.]

It is an insanely well trusted site in google's eyes having been around since before even Google was popular.

I'm selling for health reasons. Nothing terminal gladly.

In its lifetime, SEO, aside from prodigious links back, has been pathetic at best.

Some stats:One owner since 2000.  Claimed Site Age doesn't include when it used to be under another domain name.

Alexa Worldwide rank: about 8.5k ATM. US around 14k.

23% of traffic is from the US. 10% Europe, 10% UK, 10% Canada.  All Organic.

Google Analytics are attached.  Approx 1.5M unique visitors a month.  Pageviews are about 11M/month currently.

Site was once a part of O'Reilly Network.

Google's sitemaps tool indicates indexing of 40 Million pages.

Search keywords are insanely long tail & so not dependent on any one search term.

Site consists of programming knowledge archived from programming mailing lists & has run as in its current form for more than 5 years.  Other sites have tried to replicate our success without gain.

Servers: 5.. costing approx 2k/mo incl bandwidth.

Personnel: just me & a programmer who spends most of his time on other projects.

Time: 1hr day, unless working to upgrade something.

Tech: linux (ubuntu), some perl, php/mysql

Confidentiality: all will remain completely private as per your wishes. Otherwise should you wish.  Happy to help.

Terms: Payment will be all upfront, after your due diligence of course.  

Help: happy to assist after sale within reason, of course.  Love to see you succeed with it!
