Seller's Notes

Serious bidders only. I relisted the site because I decided on selling it this time.

Aliens are back again. You've noticed the trend and a massive growth in the number of people who believe in extraterrestrials. Thank the ressurection of the X-Files, Independence Day 2 and Arrival. You want a site that caters to this ever expanding pool of alien enthusiasts? You can have it.

There are other alien-oriented sites out there but UFOholic has a nice ring to it, doesn't it? There are over 500 published articles on the website so even if you don't plan on getting new content on the site you've still got plenty to keep you going. Just schedule or Buffer your posts and the 87K+ loyal fans on the Facebook page will do the rest. The post title and controversial content is set to spark a heated debate in the comment section. People are sending me photos of weird stuff they see in the sky so the opportunity to create really unique content is always there.

If you won't write your own articles there are thousands of aliens enthusiasts willing to pick up the gauntlet. Just look for their blogs, they're open for discussions. If you source your articles, the website is extremely low-maintenance and sees a steady revenue stream. Check the attachments for the numbers.

If you're wondering why I'm selling it, here's the reason: I suddenly developed a conscience. I tripped on my newfound moral compass.

I started the website last year because back then I still believed in aliens and UFOs, now I've turned into a skeptic. I don't want to write about this stuff or spread the good news about conspiracies and abductions. Seems like a bad time to get out of this E.T wagon but my mind is made up. Even if all the site statistics are going up, I still want to move on to something else.

So if you want a website with a lot of evergreen content and a Facebook page consisting of English speakers from the U.S., Canada and the U.K., hit me up.

Please explain the income. AdSense shows only $21 in Nov. Where did $1000 come from?

hi there,

forum and gallery are not showing. Also Theme seems broken on certain pages: https://ufoholic.com/news/gov-whistleblower-obama-and-clinton-will-admit-aliens-exist-before-trump-enters-the-white-house/

Whats the issue there? Can you fix these things?

are all the article fake? I mean, are they intended to be serious? The headlines read more like satire than legit UFO articles. No offense if I am wrong. Can you give a little more detail about article creation?

You've stated the articles are not original... Where are they from? Is there a risk of duplicate content penalties?
