BLOGS FOR SALE

Recently one of my friend request me to find a buyer for his blog. Yes, he want to sell his blog. We managed to find a buyer after searching in certain social network communities. The buyer is an active blogger from United States of America who have another two blogs and he was looking to buy an established blog. Nowadays , one of the hottest trend in blogosphere is that, establishing a blog and sell that to some other to earn money in a quick time.

Before trying to sell a blog one should keep some points in their mind.I will explain one by one.

General Principles to sell a blog

  • The value of a blog is generally depending upon Domain name, Traffic, Page Rank and Earnings.
  • First of all decide yourselves whether you really want to sell your blog or not.Also fix a price in your mind after analyzing your blog value. Here we will explain how to find the value of a blog.
  • Always try to optimize your blog in monetary means i.e., an Adsense / Bidvertiser / Clickbank account with at least 100 dollar a month revenue is highly appreciated.
  • An active Twitter account, with almost similar name of your blog will definitely improve the value of your blog.
  • Blog is much valued when it have a real name email account ( i.e., either an email id with the blog or an email account having the same name of blog with free services like Yahoo or Gmail)
  • It is much better to keep the bloggers name and contact address in the blog as it will increase the confidence of people who are willing to buy your blog.
  • Never try to cheat or go back from a quoted price. In order to avoid fraud, please use some established blog selling services or platforms for selling your blog.

Find Real Value of your Blog

wer  While searching the real value of a blog or a website, I found so many services that offer free online valuation of a blog. Unfortunately, each one show different value. I am so confused which one is the real value. But got “ton of fun” while going through these valuations. I will explain some of them in this post and please see how different sites valuated this blog. Let the real buyer offer the real price for your blog.

1. WEBSITE OUTLOOK : My blog worth $10417.10/-  Hooray, I am a billionaire

2. PUPFIP.COM : This website valued my blog in dollars as $9052/- Nice, isn't it?

3. CUBESTAT : The value of my blog is $8322/- I’m so happy.

5. CYBERWYRE : They gave me a value of $3411/-  Mmm, not bad.

Nowadays, it is so easy to create blogs and sell them. The only problem lies in deciding the actual value of the blog. Its never easy for anyone. I just wonder what would be the value of my blog :(

Great post.
Obviously selling a blog is the ultimate option one can think of.
Considering the fact that an established blog is a milk-cow.
But if it's paying so well then one can consider it.

Your blog articles are really popular.

Love your blog.

And love your way presenting, text size is nice you can easily read what you want to.

And for a blogspot domain, you've made the necessary effort or maybe you are a well versed progammer that doesn't need any effort. But still subscribing to all those sites and stuff.

Great work. All props to YOU.
