Seller's Notes

Techifire.com is one of those technology sites which have a bit less trafic but extremely targeted ones who visit the site frequently and puts a great value to the site. The site has been online from the last 4 years and 5 months. I started this site in a joint venture with my friend at the beginning and things were going extremely well that helped the site in attaining such excellent figures in all aspects like Alexa, PR, DA, PA and quality. But its commonly known to all of us that JVs in online world end with bluffing and that same happened to me.

The site has grown to such a level over time and thanks to all the quality visitors who keep visiting the site for latest n quality articles relating the technology niche. 

 

Monetization :

Initially the site was making money just off adsense and I used to have UK adsense account that was of my JV partner and site was making around $700-800 per month but from the last 3-4 months, I started using my own adsense and thus decreased a bit due to being new and Indian. But its improving day by day. And the most important part is that its making a substantial amount of income per month from the last 4-5 months from affiliate sales.

The traffic is quite superb and targeted and extremely suitable for affiliate earnings. I was planning to give try to a few more affiliates but lack of time and shifting to new project made me unable to do so. Currently the site is making more than $3500/mo yet I have listed that the site is making more than $3k/mo with adsensed and analytics.

All the claimed earnings can be easily verified over TeamViewer or via Skype Screen Share to interested and potential buyers who understand web business and have ample knowledge regarding how to improve such sites over time.

Reason For Selling :

There is no such special reason for selling the site. Actually I am getting huge success in affiliate marketing and thus working on a number of other sites monetized with only affiliate networks and making big chunk of money for me. So, Its really getting harder to maintain this site and keep it updated in terms of traffic as well as earning. Hope the new owner will keep the site well maintained and updated and will continue increasing the site figures to a much higher level. In case the new owner need any kinda support, I will be available on weekends to go through the support he/she wants.

The Buyer Will Get :

  • Domain : techifire.com
  • Complete site files including the database files
  • Facebook Fan page having more than 5400 fans and growing daily
  • Google+ Account with over 350 followers
  • Contact of the Content Writer [If Required]
  • After Sales Support

Payment :

The payment is acceptable only via Escrow as it’s the safest for both the buyer as well as the seller. Escrow fee will be paid equally [50/50] by both the buyer and the seller.

Note :

Feel free to ask any query you have regarding the site and verify whatever you want before putting your bid or leaving any comment. I will remain online all the time during the listing hoping it to be one of the best auctions on flippa where all the stuffs should be quite clear n transparent between the seller and the interested buyers n bidders.

Happy Bidding :)

Important Note For All Bidders N Watcher :::

The listing for my site was temporarily suspended by the flipp officials in a suspect which has been resolved now as I have provided all the necessary proofs and information that was asked by the flippa support team.

I have uploaded the traffic as well as adsense earning screenshots till 4th of April but the adsense earnings account just 15% of the total site earnings. As stated in the sales letter, the main stream of revenue is the affiliate sales.

So, Request all the interested watchers n bidders to verify each n everything first over TeamViewer, whether its earnings off adsense or affiliate sales or traffic before putting their bid or any comment.

Thanks for watching out this listing guys !!!

Nice question.

No, frnd I wanna clarify to all you guys as I have clarified this to the flippa support as well that my ex-JV partner tried to sell the site without even telling me and when I came to know about this,he withdrew the site analytics as well adsense account which we were using on the site.

But luckily i have the full control over the affiliate sales right from the very beginning so the site is still a passive income generating one .

Thanks

Hi. I checked your website with SEMRush and it doesn't seem to be ranking for any keyword. If it has so much traffic, shouldn't it be ranking for some keyword?

Secondly, most of the backlinks were built in 2013 and are mostly no follow.

Dear there,

The previous listings were not by me and you might have noticed that these listings just had AdSense earnings. Moreover, just want to ask that if the site is not ranking for any keywords, how traffic coming to the site in Google analytics.

Just think how you guys say that coz semrush shows US, UK, Canada and Australian traffic only.

I think its enough for you to understand what I trying to say.

1) I do the keyword research for the site and handover the keywords to have content written by the writer.

2) Mostly on-page optimization is done to the site.

3) Very nominal link building is done to let the site known to the online world initially.

Actually, it was a suspension notice from your hosting company (Hostwinds), which implies that your traffic is usually not that heavy. (The additional views from your auction should not have triggered a bandwidth suspension.) Anyway, it appears you have it sorted out now, so no worries.
