Buy and Sell Websites and Make Money

Countless individuals are making money because of their decision to buy and sell websites. Website flipping is the process of buying existing sites, making some type of improvements and then reselling them for a profit.

Common improvements include adding fresh content, switching out the graphics and/or header, adding social marketing badges or product purchase options, tweaking keywords and monetizing the site with Adsense or something similar.

Flipping can be done on a shoestring budget, if necessary, which makes it an especially good choice for beginners and those who have very little to invest.

Typically, the best websites to flip are those that revolve around solving a problem or answering a question. Why? The answer is simple, really. An infinite number of users count on the Internet to search for specific information as opposed to just browsing for fun.

Whenever possible, avoid flipping sites that end in anything other than .com, .net and .org… in that order. Because of the low price, purchasing an .info domain can be somewhat tempting. However, these “throw away” domains do not rank well in Google.

Flipping a site that uses the WordPress platform is also recommended. Most of the time, these sites are extremely easy to modify. There are also a wide variety of WordPress plug-ins, which have been developed strictly to aid in boosting a sites overall search engine rankings. Not only that, Google loves WordPress.

One method of locating an extremely affordable “flipping” project is to contact the web owner of a site that hasn’t been updated in quite some time. Many people start websites with the intent of building them into something big, only to discover that they are better suited for other kinds of projects. Many times these individuals are more than willing to sell their site for next to nothing.

Once the website transformation is complete, it is ready to sell. One of the best ways to do this is with the help of a site such as Flippa.com. Flippa is a large and very successful auction site that specializes in the sale of websites and domains. Listing fees are very affordable and the site is easy to navigate, even for beginners.
