Buying and Selling Websites

By Spencer Haws |

In 2014, I decided to buy 2 websites and then publicly share how I go about improving the earnings, and potentially prepare for re-sale.  One website is an SEO based based website and gets most of its earnings from Google Adsense, the other one gets most of its traffic from Pinterest and earns from primarily.

In total, I've now purchased 4 sites in 2014, and plan to buy more in the future.  I'll continue to give update posts and they will be included on this page.

Below are all the posts related to my buying and selling websites project.

Buying and Selling Websites



Happy New Year

Nice Article. You have mentioned all the things needed. Great work mate.


Wow, great guide. will need to study this and apply to my blog.


Great resource Spencer, I’ve been following you for years and just rediscovered your new website – great to see all your incredible resources collated just as i’m looking at exactly this topic. Many thanks


Buying a website is a risky job especially if the investment is big. My first experience was a big fail. So after some time spent on Flippa I found out about a site called Safe Site Buying which I heard that was created by super sellers from flippa and got a coupon code “ssb20” which was supposed to give me a huge 25% discount. This deal looked pretty good to me so I tried it. They provided me with a full report, 20 pages long and with their own subjective opinion. They were very helpful. When you want to spend more than $2-3000 on a website this service is a must if you ask me.


Great post! I am trying to learn more about this subject and this article gave me a lot of insight so keep up the good work!

How is the EmpireFlippers? I’m planning to sell few of my online properties there. Do they have the private listing like flippa does?


Spencer Haws

I like EmpireFlippers. The domains are always private.

But can you help me with my site? I am a newbie for link building and only launch my site. I read your blog, but its a little bit difficult to get visitors to my new site

Very interesting . I enjoyed reading it. Thank you!


What if the website you want to buy has a lot of spammy backlinks? Does that ruin your Google search ranking even if you delete them?

Thanks for sharing amazing info.


Yes, people can actually make a living out of buying and selling websites and domain name. Domain name is actually easier, since you don’t need to design a website page or write contents. Just buy a good domain and leave it for like 1-3 years, then sell.


Thank you sharing and amazing information.


Hi Spencer,

This post seems empty. There is no link to posts talking about website buying and selling. I believe this is work in progress?

Spencer Haws

I’m working on getting this fixed.


thank you sharing information with a right time…

I just recently sold one of my sites and I love the feeling you get when you get a lump of cash from the sale. I’ve been building up another site in the meantime and the process seems to be slow. However, I know the wait is well worth it. I can work on other things while I continue to grow it with the hope of selling again in the future. It’s so addictive.


I’ve bought an sold a few websites over the years, mostly for fun. Didn’t know you could make serious money at it though. Thanks for the info!


Please, is flippa a recommended website market place in your own point of view?

Spencer Haws

Not really, no.
