Seller's Notes

I just acquired a website with a youtube channel so ill be putting up all my sites up for sale to focus on that.

The site is built on WordPress and has 53 posts. Just added amazon yesterday to see it will get some clicks.

There is gap in analytics because i didnt transfer the google analytics when i acquired the website.  I had no intention of selling the website so didnt bother. 


I attached a screenshot of the old stats.

The website has been live for the last 12 years.

https://web-beta.archive.org/web/*/www.autorized.com

My plans were to either turn this in automotive ecommerce to sell aftermarket parts or continue to expand the content and promote automotive accessories on amazon.

The Amazon Accessories category is quite big and has a bunch of room for content to promote.

-car mats

-car lights

-car covers

-car seats

-stteering wheels

-car alarms

The list is endless along with 1000's of makes and models.

You can create content like "5 Accessories for your 1993 Acura Integra"

https://www.amazon.com/Interior-Accessories-Automotive/b/ref=sv_auto_4?ie=UTF8&node=15857501

Many high-quality backlinks.

I've decided to really focus on my youtube channel and not get distracted so i've made the difficult decision to remove the reserve which would put me at a financial loss but the next bid will meet the reserve.

Good Luck

Other sites up for sale which are no reserve as well.

@s2kinteg916 I'm a bit of an auto enthusiast and am interested in the site. Can I ask why you bought the site when you said you weren't planning on selling it? In other words what were your plans?

@nizguy

My plans were to either turn this in automotive ecommerce to sell aftermarket parts or continue to expand the content and promote automotive accessories on amazon.

I used to work in a ecommerce company that sold aftermarket lights so i knew the margins in the industry were really good.

Amazon has also expanded its car accessory category quite a bit over the years which could be quite a bit of opportunity due to their conversion rates.

Before i bought the site i was working on a deal to acquire a website with youtube channel and we finalized the acquisition first week of April.

At this point everything is up for sale since its a bigger project than i expected.

Hey can you explain why the average time on site is only 18 seconds and why the average page per view is only 1 page?

GTMetrix indicates that the site take 23 seconds to load. That is a massive load time. However, it may be doing its analysis with a cached version of the site as you can see from this screenshot: https://gtmetrix.com/reports/autorized.com/3QVGwBwk .It seems that images are the reason the site is so slow. Is this the reason you removed the images?

@sroee1 im not sure what else needs to be explained

@jim2017 this is because there is limited data. Flippa messes up the averages because of January, in other words the way it calculates its stats is buggy.

March till April is actually

@jim2017 No while page speed is important if you want to talk about design / optimization standards please send me a private message.

To answer your question no i have no removed images ... its the same as its been since it was 12 years ago. The only thing i did was upgrade the cms to wordpress for the next owner to easily add content.

The Google Analytics show an even higher bounce rate of 90%. The average time on site is just a bit higher at 32 seconds, but still a very short period. Why do you think this is?

Content hasnt been updated in like 12 years and most articles are 400-600 words. The site is in need of some fresh new content.

@Jim2017

All websites have restricted keyword data in google analytics. The stats you are seeing are perfectly normal whether its a 300 dollar site or a xx,xxx dollar site.

Here have a look
http://www.evernote.com/shard/s54/sh/bc4c5537-51ca-4108-8dc5-ad06956c7675/f17392662437cccff6b6b95c8b8bdace

Every website on flippa has the same stats, im unsure your fixation on bounce rate which this is normal.

It is actually a benefit as you will have a better baseline to improve from and show google once you start investing dollars into the website.

A site like this is not really purchased for its current form. As a website owner you would be buying on value to improve the design, bounce rate, and content to provide a better experience.
