SF News: Blogrolling Peter Davis, Ongoing Case Study this Winter Break

Some Site Flip news to let you guys know this blog is alive and well. If you enjoy the read, consider my free newsletter.

First, a mentor of mine and internet Guru (yes, capital G) is being added to the blogroll. Peter Davis is the author of the very useful Rules for Protecting Yourself When Buying a Website as well as being a Sitepoint and Earners' Forum moderator. In fact, he's started his own blog forum, for those of you looking to talk with and learn from other bloggers.

Second, I'd like to announce an upcoming site flipping project that will begin over winter break. A longtime friend and I have identified a niche with little SEO competition and keywords with good bids. Starting around Christmas, we'll be launching an informative site around the theme. The plan is to implement Adsense and affiliate programs, SEO the hell out of it, and then watch the money roll in in a couple of months when it owns the SERPs and gets plenty of eager-to-click search traffic. (Search traffic clicks on Adsense ads much more frequently than traffic coming to a website from another referring source, such as a link from a blog.)

For the design, we'll be buying a template, and my buddy will work on the coding aspect of things to modify it and install plugins etc. (We'll probably be using Wordpress as a content management system, though it remains to be seen if it will be a blog.) For the content, we're looking at hiring it out, with a focus on tying in the articles to related blog carnivals to gain links.

Then with a little luck and good revenue stats, we sell out. I've got some buyers in mind and an estimated price tag that should hopefully let my friend and I start other sites and businesses...

So Stay Tuned for late December when I'll name the site and show you the actual techniques we're using, the nitty gritty that gets the site ranking and earning money.

    Hi, Added a new value add to my blog this weekend - a news widget from www.widgetmate.com. I always wanted to show latest news for my keywords in my sidebar. It was very easy with this widget. Just a small copy paste and it was done. Great indeed.

    Nice informative article. I am trying to do a bit of website flipping myself and so far i have been quite successful ($300/week approx.). Nice residual income which i hope to maybe make it full time one day.

    I did a lot of reading in forums, ebooks etc. but what really helped me a lot was a series of videos by J. Swanson:
    www.flippingwebsites.net.
    I am sure the gurus here know him. He made a fortune from flipping websites.

    What i liked is that the videos are NOT rehearsed in any way. You think that the guy actually talks to you and guides you step by step. And he's an excellent motivator.

    Any other links to suggest?
