snowboardinghelp.com is a 12-years-old, well established site, that has stood the test of time.
Traffic is seasonal (winter months), mainly organic (from Google), steady and slightly rising the past 5 years.
The articles are unique and of high quality, but they have not been updated for over a decade!
Here are only a few of the "hot" keywords the site currently ranks on the 1st page of google in various positions:
This site is bound to become an Amazon product review site.
I purchased this site about two weeks ago here on Flippa, with the intention of making it a huge Amazon affiliate site.
I don't flip sites, I'm a buyer, but a new opportunity presented itself, and I bought another much larger site, just a couple of days after I bought this one.
So, I decided to flip this one if I get the right price, as I probably shouldn't lose my focus on both.
Site history until I bought it
It was built with static html pages, no CMS was used.
There were absolutely no images anywhere in the site (except a 100-pixel logo, 2004 design).
It was not mobile responsive!
There were no social media of any kind attached to it.
It had never been monetized properly. The previous owner only had some small Adsense units in non-prominent positions making pennies. He never tried Amazon or other affiliate programs.
In a week of owning it, I turned it into a mobile responsive WordPress site (all the urls were preserved exactly as they originally were, so no traffic or link juice will be lost).
I added SSL (from "let's encrypt") and made it secure (https://) and properly completed the site move from http to https.
I had a logo created for it.
I added some images from free stock photography sites (pixabay.com).
I removed adsense, which is totally pointless for this site, and added Amazon native ad units.
The new buyer will have to write some seriously epic "best X products" guides to enhance the site's contents (especially this page that gets the "best" traffic: https://www.snowboardinghelp.com/getting-started/the-costs-of-snowboarding.php )
Here are some much needed guides:
The visitors with the buying intention are already here, the contents are missing!
Also, please note that Amazon is not the only affiliate program in this niche. Also check out these two huge affiliates in this market:
