Just thought I'd give a quick update on some success's I have had flipping a site. Here is exactly what happened:

- Purchased a blog on DigitalPoint for $200. It was a PR 1 with about 30 uniques per day. the domain name was decent.
- I began blogging every day once or twice a day. I then submitted each new post daily to about 10 social bookmark sites like Digg, Propeller, Twittley, and Spurl.
- I created a Twitter account and got about 2000 friends. I then tweeted each new blog post I made about 3 times a day.
- I did some blog commenting placing my URL in the comments in a way that was not spam.

After 3 months of doing this the blog was was now a PR 4, and had close to 350 uniques per day.

I posted the site on Sitepoint and it sold for $1550. That was a $1300 profit for about an hour of work each day. Thats 90 Hours total or about $15 an hour of work. Not great, but, also not bad. I did it more for the website flipping experiment than the money.

That's great! I would like to start doing that, but not sure if I could get it going as well as you did.

Good job, it's a bit of work, but hey $15 an hour isn't too bad - more than a lot of jobs pay!

Just one question if you don't mind, how much revenue was the site making when you sold it?

I think ,what you did was extremely commendable . I think it might not be so very great in terms of the $$ but in the sheer method about the whole thing is very nice! i am always learning new things in forums and i think this is a very nice and positive outcome to the domain flipping business . I am still very new to this and the story is quite inspiring, I will also try to promote similarly and hope to get a decent bargain in one of my blogs! THANKS.

Yea, the point isn't the money I made, but the possibility to scale this. What if I had kept the site and continued to do the same thing every day, or better yet hire someone on odesk.com to manage the site for me for a cut of the profits? I could have put adsense up and made even more. Just think outside the box and be patient. Good things will come.

I like the marketing methods used to get the PR and visitors up. I'm sure you must have made a good sum from ads and other revenue sources too. :-)

Really great strategy. One thought. Traffic building isn't linear, its curvalinear. In other words, you saw 350 uniques after just a month or so, but at 5 months it might have grown to 2000. I have to wonder why you pulled the trigger on resale so fast. My experience has been that short term flipping is best at around 6-12 months. However, I work mostly with informational sites and less with rolling blogs. Take it for what its worth.
