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)
