This makes no sense at all, as if you have a chance to monetize it you would - anyone would... so kindly explain to me why you 'didn't' or tried and it havent paid off?

@hollowbone Hi
Maybe have no sense for you, our idea was always promote the website until we reach to 6 million users and then put some ads, If you see any website that is trying to build a brand will not have ads until get a good user base, at least is what make sense for us.

Two years ago it looked like your site was growing in traffic. But it seems no better today than it did then. The only difference is that you now have 3x more registered users but they obviously don't contribute to the traffic. Why has the site stalled with regards to growth?

@sitebuyers hi to grow is need to work in the website promoting it or make something for new users to arrive and we dont have time for that if we have time we will not sell because we belive in the project and take us many hours and money developing all to be like it is.

How much money is the site losing monthly since it is not monetized? The apps don't seem to be well reviewed, except what seems to be pay-for-positive phony 5-star reviews. What kind of support is offered after sale?

@keaka26 hi the site spend 1300$ a month that is on the description about the reviews i guess you are talking about android when the app was launch was spend 80$ in a small promotin.
About the support we will be here to help in all that we can for the time you need.

@yeabble Unfortunately, tagging is a feature on Facebook and Instagram...I applaud your ability to generate a healthy user base, but I don't see that it is sustainable, not profitable, offer a competitive advantage, or a clear path to monetizing. If you want to sell this thing, you need a motivated buyer who has the resource and the knowledge to turn it around. He's not going to take that all on for $150k... Consider lowering your targets?

After i checked analytics and done some research, the site is easily worth over 80k, it's well established, recognized on mobile platforms, has a big user base, traffic and therefore it can make alot of money.

My valuation would be from 80-150k easily, i wouldn't give it away for less.

We're now talking with our partners to see if we will make this purchase.

My last question is if you perhaps have any estimates on how much the development for Windows Phone app would cost, as it would be nice to add it among the most recognized two.

Thanks

@hollowbone Even though I've decided against this particular investment, I am very interested to see/hear what kind of plans you and your partners have in store for this business. As I said, getting that sort of site traffic to start with was no easy task. Maybe the creators were just hoping for an acquisition from one of the big dogs :)

@hollowbone i will say around 20k to build the app of course you can find some cheaper developers and make it for less than 10k

A website (or anything else) worth how much someone is willing to pay, honestly, with no revenues i doubt you will find anyone to buy it for more than $5k.

Free users, free space anything with regards to FREE costs tons of money to maintain and most importantly is hard to monetize. Furthermore, it is really hard to believe that you did not try for 2 years to monetize the site.

I know it is sad, i know it is hard to believe but you will end up with 1 option at the end of the day, shutting it down.

Anyways, my 2 cents, i have been into this game very long long time ago and i paid for it.

Good luck and honestly do not get me wrong, wish you all the best

@thewebcitizen

Just needed to reply on that as what you're saying is funny :D

5k for that site are you crazy? :D If they put up ads right now they make at least 5k per month if not more, only one android or iphone app is worth over 10k, so don't expect to get this 'cheap' as you wont.

And if you would been in this 'game' for so long as you're saying then you wouldn't act like amateur with no knowledge of how much this site is worth.

As you don't have any expertise or knowledge regarding anything obviously since you talk like a first timer on the internet :D

@EpicIntl

If you follow the conversation Hollowbone clearly isn't the seller. If the traffic is all in a browser and it isn't banned by Adsense then the site is easily worth more than $5k without question. I wouldn't pay $80k or whatever else the seller is wanting though since the kind of traffic sites like these produce tend to have very low RPM and likely a high number of invalid clicks.
