Seller's Notes

ShowMeInterest.com is the only Facebook Dating website on planet which connects Facebook Singles.

I started ShowMeinterest.com in year 2013. Website has been build from scratch and developed on Laravel - The PHP Framework. After an year of hard work finally website went live in August 2014. Initially the plan was to promote website on Facebook itself but by the time we went live Facebook changed it policy regarding dating website ads. So I had to drop Facebook marketing plan as Facebook stopped accepting dating ads.

Now I changed my marketing strategy. Initially to bring in traffic I joined hundreds of Facebook groups and started posting in them. This way I was able to bring in decent traffic each day, but the problem was that the day I will not post in these groups traffic would drops significantly.

That is the time when I started looking for Organic traffic from google and not to depend upon one source of traffic. I am an Digital Marketing expert with more then 10 years of experience. So I started doing SEO for ShowMeInterest.com and now finally efforts are paying of.

ShowMeInterest.com ranks on first page of google for keywords like (Facebook Dating) (Facebook Dating Site) (Facebook Singles).

Now ShowMeInterest.com drives steady traffic each day from Social Media (Facebook) & Organic Traffic (Google) without me doing anything. Hard work is already done.

HOW SHOWMEINTEREST.COM WORKS.

At ShowMeInterest.com we connect users on Facebook itself. But to connect on Facebook they first need to create profile on ShowMeInterest.com. User can either login via Facebook Login Api or register for account via email. Even if user registers for account via email, after login user still needs to connect his ShowMeInterest profile with Facebook Profile.

Once this step is done user are asked to choose privacy policy. We have two privacy policy option to choose from.

1) Private - If you select this option then people who wants to connect with you will first have to show interest on your showMeInterest.com profile. You can accept or reject interest. Note - if you will accept interest then only the other person will be able to find & connect with you on Facebook.

2) Public - If you are going to select this option then any one can connect with you on Facebook via your showMeInterest.com profile.

Now users can browse profiles of singles listed on ShowMeInterest.com and connect with each other on base of privacy settings selected by users.


HOW POPULAR IS SHOWMEINTEREST.COM

ShowMeInterest.com is quite popular among United States (50% Traffic) and second among United Kingdom (10% Traffic).

ShowMeInterest.com is popular amoung people above 40 years. What we have observed is that young people are not interested in ShowMeInterest concept its the older age people with money who are very much interested in ShowMeInterest.

WHY AM I SELLING SHOWMEINTEREST.COM


I have a full time Job as Project Head and now do not have enough time to take this website to next level. So I have decided to sell it. As all the hard work is done so I am looking for someone who can take it to next level.

WHAT WILL YOU GET AFTER YOU WIN THE AUCTION?


1. The website files and database.

2. The domain.

3. I will provide 1 month Consultancy & After Sales Support.

4. Facebook Page with 426 Likes

 

YOU WILL ALSO GET ANOTHER FACEBOOK PAGE WHICH IS GROWING FASTER THEN OUR BRAND FACEBOOK PAGE.

Here is What more you will get. Recently I tested that when ever I search on Google.com for (Facebook Dating) (Facebook Dating Site) and (Facebook Singles) each time this Facebook Page (https://www.facebook.com/FreeDatingSitesx/) comes on first page, first position of Google and also does have more than 13055 Likes.

Now the question I asked myself was why each time this page comes up on first position. Answer is Facebook Page Name (Free Online Dating Sites) & Page URL (https://www.facebook.com/FreeDatingSitesx/).

Google searches works in combination of Keywords. So whenever someone searches for Facebook Dating then Google thinks (Facebook.com and dating), combining both, it always show Facebook Pages in first 2 or 3 positions, whenever someone searches for (Facebook Dating) (Facebook Singles) or (Facebook Dating Site).

Now I too wanted to get the first spot not the third sport for keyword like (Facebook Dating).
So I came up with another Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/FreeOnlineDatingSiteforSingles/).

And results are excellent. With in 3 Months this new Facebook Page has received 470 Likes and growing really fast. All I do is share profile page URL of singles who have allready registered on ShowMeInterest.com that is it.

This new Facebook page is growing faster than our brand Facebook page that is (https://www.facebook.com/showmeinterest/). Even millions of people search for Dating websites with in Facebook searches and because of new Facebook page having “Free Online Dating Site for Singles” as its title & URL it helps drive traffic from with in Facebook too.

So all you have to do is keep adding Singles Profile URLS from ShowMeInterest.com on this page and after some time this new Facebook page will start showing in first spot in Google.com
So buyer of ShowMeInterest.com will also get (https://www.facebook.com/FreeOnlineDatingSiteforSingles/).

I am currently working on getting this new Facebook page on TOP POSITIONS IN GOOGLE.COM, hopefully my efforts will pay off.

Rest if you have any questions the please feel free to drop a message.

Hi, great listing. Are you really making $77 from adwords from just 1,500 traffic? That's insane conversion rate - I wish my websites made that sort of money. Can you confirm to me that your revenue is strictly ONLY from this website and not from a portfolio of websites of which this is one?

@JamHold Yes $77 from adwords earnings is only from my website (ShowMeInterest.com). As a proof I have just uploaded screen short of February Google AdSense earnings which you can cross check. Not just that In March earnings will easily cross $100 mark.

So here I go I have uploaded screen short of Google Adsense Earnings From 1st to 15th March 2017 and earnings have allready reached $88.54. I am still left with 15 more days in March which means earnings will easily cross $150 mark.

@abhinavj
1. What version of Laravel is it?
2. What percentage of your users are continuing to visit the site after 30 days?
3. Your verified traffic is relatively flat in the last 9 months (1000 - 1500/mo), but your revenue from this traffic has increased substantially from about $20 to $80 in the same time period. What changes did you make to increase your CTR/ad value by nearly 4x while only increasing traffic by 1.5x?

@DistincT 1) Regarding version of Laravel I cannot answer this question right now. Right now it is midnight in India and my developer is at sleep.
2) Roughly 25% users do return on website after 30 days too. As when some one shows interest in users profile on website or sends a message then we do send email notification to the user about same. Because of email notification people do login again at website.
3) Website traffic started increasing from Oct 16 on wards and during same period Adsense earnings also increased. You can cross check above in provided stats. Regarding increase in CTR when traffic started increasing in October 2016 at that time rankings in google were a bit on the lower side in comparison with rankings in google in January or February 2017. Around January 2017 rankings in google improved alot this is the reason for jump in traffic and earnings. Please kindly check Keywords Ranking Report above under Attachments.

@abhinavj Thanks for the clarifications. I don't disagree that your rankings increased, which resulted in increasing your traffic by 50%. But again, your traffic increased by 50% while your revenue increased by 300%. If nothing changed on the site but better rankings and traffic I would expect them to match up - or at least be somewhat similar.

Tue, 21 Mar 2017 11:20:04 AEDT

@DistincT In regard with 300% jump in revenue I would say is that initially I was driving traffic from Facebook Groups and that traffic was a bit lower on the quality side. When I say quality the traffic was mix of (Spammers + Non USA) because of which I could not get high per click cost, but with organic traffic from Google I am receiving more of Genuine users and quality traffic from USA. This can be a reason for jump in revenue.

ShowMeInterest.com does not have any competition. Website is unique and gaining popularity. Also it is not easy to rank on first position for keywords in Dating Industry. So last 5 hours are left. Any other question then please feel free to ask.
