Figure it out. A website 5 days old fetches nearly $1000 at an online auction. If you think it’s a joke, think again. Better still head off to this link.
SitePoint Marketplace is an interesting place for web professionals. There are templates for sale, domain names for sale, and of course sites for sale. A new category has just been started – Premium Sites For Sale.
Coming to the auction above, the site in question (seocrunch.com) is established on Oct 11, listed for sale on Oct 15, and sold a day later presumably for $995, the reserve price.
How is that to make a living? Salivating, no doubt. According to Brendon Sinclair of SitePoint, 3 reasons stood out for SeoCrunch.
- An excellent domain name.
- A lovely design.
- The site has been set up and implemented.
It may not be everyone’s game to do a SeoCrunch. But, all in all, selling websites to earn some decent sum online is a good proposition. What do you say?
