Seller's Notes

SELLER INTERVIEW:

How is your business monetized?

Advertising

 

Please describe your business model?

The hairstyle blog is monetized via Google Adsense. Most(about all) of the traffic is organic and come from Google search, so there is no work involved (passive income). Just focus on adding more articles (hire writers) to increase organic traffic to increase the revenue. Also, you can try other ad networks like content.ad, tribal fusion, outbrain, media.net to add more income stream.

 

Are you the original owner of the business?

Yes

 

Which platform does the website use?

WordPress

 

Where is the site hosted and will this need to change after purchase?

The website is hosted on Inmotion Hosting. Yes, I'll transfer the website to the buyer's hosting for free.

 

Why are you selling the business?

I have built the website from scratch like many other and selling it to focus more on other projects as I'm not been able to run so many projects all at once. So, decided to sell some of those and concentrate on bigger ones. Will reinvest the money in other projects.

Yes, Facebook.

Yes, I have.

 

What are the primary traffic sources of the site?

Why do you think the site's top traffic sources are the the ones you chose above?

Do you use, or have you experimented with, social media marketing?

No, I have not.

I had a freelance writer who wrote the articles for me. I did keyword research to find long term easy to rank keywords and gave them to the freelancer to write according to the instructions. I have prepared a doc file explaining the instructions so that It became very easy to explain to the newly assigned writers. Will give the doc file to the Buyer. The freelancer would write directly to the website, I checked them and did some seo before publishing the posts.

Content.ad (very little)

@mohammad alsughayer It's not automated as automated blogs are spam and I don't like or build crap websites. Articles are manually written and formatted and then published. The seo is also done manually and whitehat.

@mentol as some articles were very big and required too much scrolling they were taking high page load time and high bounce rate causing poor user experience. I identified those articles and included pagination following proper seo requirements which helped decrease the bounce rate and page load time and improved user experience and other metrics. Thanks

The last uploaded AdSense data shows revenue for the end of the quarter (end of June), which is traditionally a very high paying period since ad budgets are completely spent. I have sites in the men's lifestyle space and July CPMs have dropped 40%. Can you please upload AdSense revenue for July?

Why are your backlinks being removed. The links on your backlink Referring page URL on Semrush are being pulled down,
displays 404 error message (http://menshairstylesguide.com/black-men-fade-mohawk-fohawk-hairstyles/). And there's a warning on this other page that holds your back link http://becuo.com/hip-hop-hair-styles . Hope its not going to affect the rankings and organic traffic?

@airhis First of all, this website has survived all recent and past year search engine penalties and all other rankings up-down etc. So, your question 'Why are your backlinks being removed.' means all backlinks are being pulled off (!!!) while you seem to indicate to only a couple of backlinks which were taken down a year ago! Did anything happen to the website traffic in the last 10 months? NO. So I hope you won't write any comments trying to cause fear among other bidders trying to decrease the value of the auction. Also, I hope you know that an established blog like this gets lots of backlinks and natural backlink profile will contain a couple of such links. Thanks

Please don't get me wrong, I didn't mean to cause any worries on the mind of buyers. I'm new to website flipping and seo stuffs. I've been watching this auction for a long time now and I admire the way pageviews and unique visitors cames naturally. I'm only using your methodology on my project and I pointed that out because I'm taken time to check the entire composition and strategy, but I could find just that. Performance Scores and Page load time are above average. One of my project (Maxlovemessages.com.ng) is yet to be as successful as yours. Though I may not be able to bid because I can only afford less than its current bid price I wish you all the best with your sales.
