Description

This is the 2nd largest webOS tablet community/forum on the web right now.  If you know the industry this sale is pretty straight forward.

The site requires very little work, maybe 5 minutes every few hours to remove some spammers. The site is self sustaining as it is one of a kind for its operating system.

The site was making money off of Adsense, ContextWeb and Lijit Adnetworks, combining for roughly 300-350 a month.

Disclaimer: Recently Google requested Adsense to be removed which we have complied. We have not yet tried other avenues of revenue at this point due to other projects that require more attention. So it is recommended not to use Adsense.

This is an open sale, so feel free to ask me any questions. I am taking buy it now offers as mentioned I have other projects awaiting my attention and sooner I get this sale done the better.

 

Additional Revenue Details

We have not looked for other additional methods of revenue so far after getting a warning from Adsense. We are currently using our already approved ad networks.

ContextWeb - Averages around $50-$75 a month
Lijit Ads - Averages about $15-$25
Infolinks(just added) - Averages about $20-$40
Adf.ly(just added) - Averages $10-$20 

These are current numbers and not projected as previous revenue so it is far more accurate. With the right ad network you can be making much more, currently for Lijit Ads we are only making .10-.15/1000.

Additional Details

The site still has frequent visitors and still have active members. There is only one moderator and he will stay on for as long as needed. He does not get paid.

What you are getting is a medium sized forum with the opportunity to market different products as we have a database of 35k members. There are usually 50 active members/guest at any given hour.

This site will not have a reserve. We had a previous sale but buyer backed out. This time we need to sell the site in order to pursue new projects.

    Why did Adsense ask you to remove the ads?

    Note Adsense was used on the site for about 2 years. Contextweb and Lijitads have been used for 2 years as well.

    It looks like the forums are rather dead and no updated articles written in a very long time. Can you help me understand? Hard to pay that much for a site that seems to be on its last leg.

    We are going to see where the bid ends.
    You are buying a forum with 35K members that still check their emails when you send an email via vBulletin. Members do visit the site often to browse the app section since they are needed login to view.
    The frontpage has not been updated since majority land inside our forum and not our homepage. In addition I haven't had time to update as mentioned in the description.
    The ideal buyer will update the site with relevant content and continue posting topics within the forum to generate discussion.
    But besides that if you have a good CPC network you can make much more money as the site was easily making $300-$350 per month with Adsense. Even without that CPM and other networks have been netting the site over $100.
