10 Tips on Website Buying

SEOMoz' Egol has 10 tips to share about buying a website. Egol's tips for website purchases tackle things from a combination legalistic/SEO point of view which is quite interesting. Note: If you enjoy the read, consider my free newsletter.

Some of Egol's main points, which really apply to any important business deal. However, I think it's worth noting that much of the legal stuff is only important for big deals. There's no point spending $200/hr on a lawyer if the domain itself costs $100.

In short: Hire a lawyer, use escrow services, make sure you get the deed/title/legal papers cleanly, and buy the domain for its "sexiness," content, and backlinks.
