The main reason for selling this site is the lack of time as I am working on an app. I have no time to manage this blog.

SELLER INTERVIEW

Please describe your business model

BlogHelpline is a multi-niche tech blog which covers Android, technology, Photoshop, blogging and make money online topics. The website is monetized by Google AdSense and affiliate stuffs as well.

And still there are some untapped monetizing methods which can be used to boost monthly revenue such as sponsored posts, paid reviews, banners advertising and much more.

And there are tons of monitization potentials out there such as AdSense, Affiliate, Banner Ads, Paid Post/Reviews (As the Site's DA & PA is Good) and much more.

@mohammad alsughayer - Hi, it's a handcrafted site and all content on the site are written by myself and other authors.

I haven't tried any methods of monetisation now in recent times. It used to make up to $300-500 is the past, now it has potential to make even more monthly income with just regular content updation.

I used to monitize site with AdSense ads, sponsored/paid post as it an aged tech site and some direct advertising slots.

Still there are lots of untapped monitization opportunities which can be explored.

Hi, if the site has been making $3-500 in the past, why haven't you currently monetised it? Sounds strange to me?

@User 121d1703 - Hi, I'm sure you haven't read the sale pitch properly. As I have already mentioned above site's hosting account got suspended and all site assets have been deleted from the server and then we had to recreate site with locally saved contents.

And thus the traffic and revenue dropped deeply, now the old posts and new articles are started ranking well on Google as you can see the reports.

And I have the proof of all previous Analytics and revenue claims, I'm ready to add you in Analytics if you want.

And since the site is getting back to the flow and ranking for keywords we have decided to not use any monitization as the traffic is low and we found that new sites with no ads ranking better. If you want you can also test it with AdSense sandbox tools.

Hello Everyone,

I just wanted to Pass on a few questions I have been asked that I think would be useful for others to know the answers to (thanks to the people who asked them).

Q: Where does the content come from? Do you hire content writers?

A: All the content on the site are hand-written by myself. I also have contact with some great article writers who writes very affordably, I will arrange them if you want.

Q: Can you share opportunities and ideas for the site?

A: Sure, All the things the new owner has to do is just update the site with new contents regularly nothing else definitely. As its already a old authority site which had very good reputation over SERPs now its ranking for any new contents which is being posted.

And with few backlink profiles you can take it to the next level. I will also guide you through SEO and backlinks stuffs if you want.

And there are tons of monitization potentials out there such as AdSense, Affiliate, Banner Ads, Paid Post/Reviews (As the Site's DA & PA is Good) and much more.

Q: I noticed that the site does not have any articles for previous years, and suddenly started having content from 2017.

A: Well, based on important SEO factor old & aged articles not going to rank well on SERPs anymore as Google prefers updated and latest contents and thus we have to update/rewrite all old posts so we have gone ahead and updated all posts which published in the previous years.

But you can check original post date/month by checking images path/directory of any WordPress sites, you can verify on site such as:

http://www.bloghelpline.com/how-to-avoid-whatsapp-fees/
http://www.bloghelpline.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/10/whatsapp-768x341.jpeg

http://www.bloghelpline.com/passport-size-photo-coat-and-tie-psd/
http://www.bloghelpline.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/11/using-quick-selection-tool.gif

But, all the posts are updated with recent dates. You can also use this to verify any WordPress site's age with this method, as the image directory month & year can't be manipulated.

If you guys have any questions, feel free to ask me.

Hello,

I don't want to confront you, but as per adsense data shared by you, your website generated $600 in 2.5 years especially when the website was getting a lot more traffic as claimed by you.

If you'll break down $600 in months 29 Months, than its less than $30 per month for a so called authority website in its peak.

Do you want to clarify on this ?

@Website Hunter - Yes the report is verified but I have already clearly mentioned above in detail that the site was making $300-500 from combined of AdSense, Paid Posts, Sponsored Reviews and Banner Ads. Not just from AdSense. Also tried other network ads (Bidvertiser)

I have clarified all this clearly.

@Website Hunter - I would suggest you to read the sale pitch again clearly which will clarify all your doubts. And I have also written this in comments as well.

The website doesn't claim the revenue now which it was making in the past and as I have mentioned the site's hosting was suspended because of other site's over limit CPU usage which hosted along.

And thus we have lost all data, then had to re-create site with contents locally saved that's why there're limited articles available on the site now.

You can double check all data on search console which has site's all previous information verified.
