Seller's Notes

The Online Review of Books and Current Affairs is a high-quality book review and news site.  I started it in 2004 and my editorial contributors (several of them well known) and I have done hundreds of book reviews, articles, interviews, and news stories, many of which have appeared on other web sites and have been praised by the news media.

I make money by charging for book reviews and having a link to Amazon for book sales.  For the first several years, I had hundreds of page views per day and many thousands per month.  One of my essays garnered over 25,000 page views.  If you Google Online Review of Books, it appears in the first slot, which is quite valuable in and of itself.

In recent years, however, I have had medical problems and have neglected the site; as a result, the income and page views have dropped substantially.  A new owner could easily rejuvenate the site and make at least $1,000 per month working by him or herself.  If the new owner hired other part-time individuals, he or she could make much more.

This says content is not unique, is it on other sites?

Also, I'd like to see revenue proof, that's a lot of revenue for such a low number of views

The content on my site is all original. If some of it appears on other sites it is because I have either willing shared it with them or it was taken without my permission. Regarding the income, as I stated in my description, in the early years of the OR, I was getting thousands of hits per month and making thousands of dollars per year. Since 2012, I have neglected the site and it only gets hundreds of page views and makes a marginal profit.

How can I see your reviews of all the books you did ? I don't see it on the site.

Go to site, hit Archives, and then click on Issue 1 - January 2004 and so on down the line.

what's this site made with? Will we keep all the old reviews and content, and the website builder (what if we move it to another host?) I'd like to redesign the site but not sure how easy that would be.

I believe it was done using Word and HTML. The new owner would keep all the old reviews and content and could move it to another host or redesign it or whatever.

Hi. What's the reserve? I notice that this has been listed 20 timed previously. I'm interested, but I'm not sure where your anchor point is on price.
