    <ol><li><strong>Buy a site that has targeted traffic for a product or service you already produce or sell.</strong>
    You can direct traffic from the new site to your products/services
    through advertising, email lists or sales pages. This is a great way to
    establish a customer base very quickly but you have to be confident
    that the traffic is quality, targeted traffic. Don’t fall into the trap
    of buying a high traffic site that consumes lots of bandwidth but
    doesn’t have the type of user you can leverage for revenue, otherwise
    you might be buying a liability, not an asset.</li><li><strong>Buy a site to generate advertising revenue.</strong>
    In this instance you might not change the site other than by working to
    increase the amount of traffic and improve the performance of
    advertisements on the site. Sites with lots of good content but are
    poorly optimized are perfect for this strategy. Once you own the rights
    to the content you can then further leverage it by repacking and
    republishing the content in other ways, perhaps information products,
    article marketing or as free give away enticements to join an email
    list.</li><li><strong>Buy a site specifically to flip it quickly.</strong>
    This is perhaps the most risky venture (day-trading!) because you need
    to find sites that are clearly underperforming with the potential for a
    big upside result after you complete your renovation. Ideally you
    should locate e-commerce sites selling a product that has an
    established market that is only just starting to take off online AND
    the current owners are not good at search engine optimization or online
    marketing and are willing to sell.The theory is that you can quickly
    implement your changes, tweaking a few percentage point increases in
    multiple areas, resulting in a good double figure increase in sales in
    a short period of time. If you can complete your work just before the
    general marketplace catches up you can make a mint by selling the site
    at a premium before the Internet becomes saturated and your early mover
    advantage is eroded or the market slows.The web is one of the fastest
    industries in terms of competitive action due to the very low barriers
    to entry. To execute day-trading style website buying and selling
    requires an entrepreneur with their finger on the pulse of the web.
    They must be in tune with what’s new and willing to gamble on what’s
    going to be new tomorrow in order to have success.</li><li><strong>Purchase a community driven site.</strong>
    A site with a massive forum filled with a nice target niche audience
    can be a gold mine to a entrepreneur. Often these sites were built by
    hobbyist fans, not aimed to profit in any way. Their website might have
    ballooned in growth to the point where the bandwidth is costing them a
    lot each month and since they are not skilled in website monetization
    they will be willing to sell the site at a bargain price. This can be a
    great strategy to make advertising revenue but be very careful with
    audience selection. Some forum communities are very difficult to make
    money from and may end up costing you more in ongoing hosting fees.
    Ideally choose a community demographic that has established high
    keyword prices in AdSense/high value to advertisers (electronic gadgets
    for example), has a good selection of affiliate products you could
    market or suits some products or services you already sell yourself.</li><li><strong>Look for a site operating in a highly popular keyword niche or one you expect will become popular in the near future.</strong>
    Keywords drive search engine traffic and if you can pick the trends
    before they become trends you may own some valuable property. Consider
    if you could guess what tomorrow’s “blog” or “podcast” will be and buy
    the sites with established keyword rich content before they become
    mainstream topics and overpriced.</li><li><strong>Remove the competition or merge with the competition.</strong>
    In this case you buy competing websites or negotiate a merger to
    combine with them to create one large enterprise. Depending on the
    industry you operate in this can be a very smart strategy to create
    market dominance. One of the best examples is website hosting. Often
    smaller hosts are bought up by larger hosting businesses with the
    result increased stability and professionalism.</li><li><strong>Purchase a site strictly for the domain name.</strong>
    Obviously in this case you don’t care too much about what is already
    developed in terms of website content, you just want the street address
    (URL). Imagine a few years ago if you purchased <code>mp3.com</code> or <code>blog.com</code>.
    In this case the address itself is of significant value regardless of
    the website, or if you are good at picking trends, you might see the
    future value in a domain name before the market realizes it<br

    Interesting post but sooooo hard to read! Good tip about buying domain names that may have a future value though although I guess the hard part is to pick one which will be both valuable and sought after.

    If you want to do well with flipping websites, and you are eager to master how to flip websites for good value then you need to choose niches that are both broad and specific.

    Flipping is not an easy task. Yes it has its own set of challenges. its something like this, few people can make money in stock market. Same is the case here. You should be lucky enough for someone to like your site and pay you huge money. I feel Domain Name flipping is easier.

    When you copy paste to make a useless thread, at least spend some time to format it. I guess everyone on here understands the basics of flipping and such copy paste is totally meaningless.
