Seller's Notes

Craze.cc is a Social Topic Discussion Community. So what that means is that its a place for people to talk about anything ranging from hot topics like "Winter Olympics Opening Ceremony" to smaller topics like "Have You Broken a Bone?".

So you may be asking... Isn't this just a Forum? What makes this unique? Well... Craze.cc isn't just another forum like phpbb or vbulletin. Its much simpler, more straight forward, and has an eye friendly interface that any average joe can use.

The main things that set Craze.cc apart from other sites is the fact that you can comment on comments (much like a youtube + facebook mix), and you can Like AND Dislike topics (similiar to facebook, but facebook doesn't have a Dislike button).


Craze.cc is only a month old
, and it has experienced tremendous growth (over 100 members and 5000 comments already)!
It has a lot of potential because this type of discussion community is an unfilled and very profitable niche.

NOTE: Adsense is currently not running on Craze.cc! So ads will not be as nearly contextual as they normally are when Adsense is running.

-----------------------------

 

Main Features (Only the important ones):

Dynamic RSS button - Depending on the page you are currently on, you may get one of the following: RSS for new topics, RSS for new comments on a topic, RSS for new topics made by a user, RSS for latest comments made by a user.

Simple BBcode - uses same bbcode that other forums use. Uses [img] and [video] tags also!

Autograb Images & Videos - Via the [img] and [video] tags. Works 100% with youtube and many other video sites.

Like and Dislike Buttons - Not only a like button because not everyone likes everything because not everyone is the same.

Report Function - Easy report feature that allows users to report bad topics. When a user reports something, you will be alerted by email so that you can take care of the issue asap. Also, if 5 or more users report the topic, the topic will automatically disappear.

Comments on Comments - No more quoting other user's posts just to give them your opinions.

Close Inactive topics after 7 days - Craze.cc automatically knows when a topic is no longer active and hides the topic from the homepage. NOTE: These topics remain on the website and indexable by google. This means MORE ORGANIC TRAFFIC.

Topic Owner can't bump his/her own topic - Unlike forums, users on Craze.cc cannot bump topics they have created. This makes room for the real popular topics to grow.

Stop Spam - Users can only make comments/new topics every 30 seconds. Verification Emails are sent to new users.

Edit Topics and Comments - Users (and admins) can edit their topics and comments if they happen to make a mistake in something or they just feel like changing something.

Admin Users - You can give people you trust Admin powers which allows them to manage the content on Craze.cc

Refer Users - Craze.cc counts referrals made by your users. Very good idea to reward users with many referrals. Comes with easy to use referral url.

Eye Friendly Web2.0 Template - The template used is 100% unique and exclusive to Craze.cc

SEO URLs - Craze.cc uses search engine friendly urls and meta keywords that will get your pages indexed and increase the free organic traffic that Craze.cc receives.


The best way to know what features you'll be getting is to try out the website yourself!

So Why am I selling if this has so much potential?

Why I Should Be Selling: I have SATs, Subject Tests, and AP classes to worry about.

Why I'm Really Selling: I have another growing social networking site to promote. Its really starting to take off and I need to focus my efforts on it.

 

This one of those situations when you can say: "One Man's Trash is another Man's Treasure".

 

Please go right ahead and ask any questions you may have!

Additional Revenue Details

Since Craze.cc is so new, I've only been able to expirement with so many ad companies.

Craze.cc has made $30 in 2 weeks from adsense. Click rate was very high, .7% at least because topics brought very well targeted contextual ads.

For example, people who were talking about modern warfare 2 would see modern warfare 2 ads, because they were enthusiasts of the game, they were interested in the ads. Thus, ads are very good at targeting the correct groups because the topic pages provide many keywords.

 

 

Well you maybe thinking: "Great, I'll just use adsense!"... Problem is the google banned me from adsense because they suspected me of click fraud. I did not use any bots or other illegal methods to get these clicks. I'm not stupid enough to mess with Google.

The message I got from them:

"Hello,

While going through our records recently, we found that your AdSense
account has posed a significant risk to our AdWords advertisers. Since
keeping your account in our publisher network may financially damage our... See More
advertisers in the future, we've decided to disable your account.

Please understand that we consider this a necessary step to protect the
interests of both our advertisers and our other AdSense publishers. We
realize the inconvenience this may cause you, and we thank you in advance
for your understanding and cooperation."

NOTE: Adsense is currently not running on Craze.cc! So ads will not be as nearly contextual as they normally are when Adsense is running.


So, if you want to use adsense, you will need to change domains. However, adbrite has been doing pretty good for me, and other contextual ad networks will probably do better.
