Popular website marketplace Flippa has made another great sale with SciTechDaily.com selling for $34,000 yesterday. The auction drew 22 bids from 7 different bidders starting at $10,000 a little over two weeks ago. Most of the bidding action took-place yesterday as the site went from $16,000 to end at $34,000.
The site was started back in 1998 and has become one of the authority news site in the science and technology space. The site gets around 52,000 unique visitors/month and a great backlink profile with multiple listings in DMOZ. PR7 sites are hard to come-by and only websites with a very strong backlink profile can build-up a Pagerank like this. The site creators also built a custom system for easily adding articles and links to the site.
The current owner of SciTechDaily hasn’t done much to monetize the site so it will be up to the new owner to turn those 50,000+ visitors into real money, if that’s their goal. There is no doubt that this site is in need of an update, it already has an audience, and the platform is in place for a site getting six-figure traffic numbers and bringing in a nice passive monthly income stream.
Just another great example of a real online business selling for real money on Flippa!
