My First Time ... Buying A Website_ The Process And What To Do When Purchasing

  1. 1. My First Time ... Buying A Website: The Process And What To DoWhen PurchasingJust as many people on Hubpages are successfully managing, a while ago I decided that I wanted totry and buy/make a profitable website. I thought I knew a lot about computers and the internet, butoooh boy was I wrong! At first everything seemed like a foreign language, the marketing approachseemed incredibly complex and I started to feel like giving up.However, a couple of kind friends stepped in and sent me many emails explaining the process.Thanks to them, I eventually developed an understanding of the whole process of how to buy awebsite, and after a while, I managed to understand the marketing too... Which lead to me taking theplunge and purchasing one. It was a real nerve racking experience (for me), but one I have alsothoroughly enjoyed. Hence, this is my story about the journey, the discoveries and lots of interestinginformation for anyone considering following this path! I will try to cover it step by step and alsoinclude lots of nifty marketing tips... Hope you enjoy reading the series of hubs to follow.The first thing I found tricky was finding a place to buy websites. They tend not to be in the classifiedssection of your local newspaper (although, some are) and you also need more information than isnormally given in a classified advert. My thought was simple, I wanted to find somewhere that soldwebsites in a transparent way. By this, I mean that they have at least verified some of the informationabout the site and the seller. But, preferably that they have collected a lot of the information a buyermay want to know. A couple of the better sites (in my opinion) were Flippa.com andWebsiteBroker.com. My reasons for picking these two sites are more of convenience and securitythan anything else, these sites provide you with (and verify many aspects of) the following:• Date Started• Disk Space• Bandwidth• Adult Content• WHOIS Information• Statistics Available• Google Page Rank• Google Analytics• Unique Visitors• Verified Page views• Verified Visits• Verified New Visits• Verified Bounces

That is not to saythat there arent bad eggs amongst the many for sale, just that they are a little easier to spot, as theyare often the ones avoiding supplying the information show above.In my next hub of this series, I will be looking at what you need to check before considering making aserious offer on a website.I hope that you have found this interesting and if you have any opinions or comments, please take amoment to drop me a line below.
